Cub Cadet LTX 1040 13RX90AR056

This is a variable speed type drive, forward reverse push the pedal to go. Putting new belt on because it will not go fast or pull its self up a hill. Took old belt off no problem but isn't the steering shaft suppose to go through the belt?? I have done a Cub before and the shaft went through the belt. Maybe it's been to long. I look at the diagrams and u-tube and no help there. So Iam asking the pros. Also what would make this thing slip so bad??? Old belt didn't seem bad but it was stretched a little. HELP????

Thank You

It could be the drive pulley has worn and the belt is "bottoming out" which would let it slip and act like the belt stretched. Have a good one. Geo

I checked it and nope that isn't it. A 2009. The belt was stretched a bit.

Did you have to remove the steering column to get the old belt off? If not, it doesn't go through it. I don't recall the column going through the belt on that model.
