    1026R 54D Deck rattle resolved!!

    Ifinally got feed up hearing my deck rattle, it was driving me nuts!!
    I traced the noise to be coming from the belt pulley. The movement of the pulley was consistentwith the rattle I was hearing. What I did to fix it, was add more tension tothe pulley by adding a second spring (See Pictures).I purchased the same springused on the deck locking pivot. (P/N M118949). I have cut the lawn twice since adding this spring and the deck rattleis gone!!!!!!

    hope it's not so much tension to cause excessive stretch on the belt leading to early replacement.

    Annoying noise

    I may have to try something similar to my 60" MMM. I just got mine back from dealer to replace/repair spindle that was loose or bearings worn. I just used again and it makes rattling noise. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing similar noises.

    I agree ! I mowed my entire property today and deck was O.K. during level cutting , but if I got a little sideways or up a small incline I would hear a rattling noise that was pretty loud . I am going to try the spring and see if that resolves the issue .

    Funny you should mention this. Just today, I was mowing and noticing the deck rattling more than I remembered. I stopped and got down and looked and the belt and the idler pulley were really vibrating. I don't remember them vibrating so much in the past.

    I tried this today. I picked up the spring from my local JD dealer on Friday for less than $5 and had to wait until the rain moved out to try it. The deck is much quieter than before. Thanks for the tip!
