Drive Belt

I have Craftsman 91727102 mower and I've had the same problem several times. It just stops going into forward and reverse and then sears comes out and charges me $200 bucks for a drive belt. I'm not very good at this kind of thing, but I'm ready to learn. I've looked in the owners manual and it says the drive belt also, but I really don't know where it is up under there. Is there a service manual that would have some visuals? Or is this an easy enough job that someone might be able to talk me through it?

OK,

I couldn't find a manual for this Sears unit so I threw together a diagram and how to.....





And at 200 bux (I only charge 50 plus belt cost) I don't blame you for wanting to try and learn.


Good Luck
