BELTS
Under tensioned V-belts can slip and squeal. This
generates excess heat and results in cracking and
premature belt failure. Over-tensioned belts reduce
belt and bearing life.
Properly tensioning and aligning a belt drive will allow
the belt drive to perform at it’s maximum level.
Stop the engine and remove the spark plug wire
before making any belt adjustments.
Adjust belt tension after the first five hours of
operation. Then tension as required.

Refer to the section “Operation” in this manual to verify engine
starting procedure.
Check the spark plug connection.
Check that throttle lever is set to the “FAST” position and the choke is
“ON”.
Check the level of fuel
Check fuel valve is “ON”.
Make sure the throttle lever is not set to the slow setting or the choke
still in the “ON” position.
Turn the machine off and check the air filter. If it is dirty clean or
replace it according to the Engine Manual.
Check the oil level in the engine. Add if necessary. If the oil is too
full drain the oil to the proper level.
Check to make sure there is enough fuel. Also make sure the fuel
is not old, dirty or the machine has not been stored beyond a month
with the same fuel in it.
If the engine still has problems contact your dealer for service.
Check to make sure the machine is not running on “CHOKE”
Check to make sure the oil is not overfilled.
Check the air filter for debris and clean if necessary.
Check the engine for debris build up around the exhaust system.
MAKE SURE THE ENGINE HAS HAD THE PROPER TIME TO
COOL BEFORE TOUCHING HOT PARTS.
If there is still smoke coming from the engine contact the nearest
dealer for service.
Check that the free wheel lever is pulled out.
Make sure the parking brake is disengaged.
Check to make sure the direction lever is being pressed far enough
down or pulled up to make the machine move.
With the engine off and brake engaged, check the transaxle belt is
not broken or fallen off the pulley. Replace belt if necessary.
Make sure nothing is lifting the machine up off the wheels.
Check linkage for free operation.
Check the pulley to make sure it is free from damage such as a nick
or crack. If the pulley feels rough call a dealer for service and a
replacement pulley.
Check the belt for wear and damaged spots. If there are signs of
damage or wear on the belt, replace with the correct type of belt.
Check the belt tension. If V-belts are under tensioned, they can slip.
Slippage generates heat and will result in cracking and belt failure.
Properly tensioning and aligning a belt drive will allow the belt drive
to perform at it’s maximum level. If belts are over-tensioned, belt and
bearing life can be reduced.
If the belt and pulley appear to be in good condition, contact your
dealer for service.
