Diagnosis
  • Bent Blade
  • Bent deck housing at the spindle mount bolt holes.
  • Spindle & pulley system A-OK

Thanks to the good folks @ the JD Dealer I bought the tractor from (Bud Herbert Motors ~ Cincy) I'm back up and cutting grass...and yes I'll be taking an ax to that exposed tree root that created all of this fun.

Here are some photos requested by Arnoha with the belt back on...FYI my deck height is set @ 3.5" in these photos with the deck in the down (ready to cut) position.

Thanks for everyone's comments and interest.

Thank you for those. Not sure it was a direct request, but the pics are definitely appreciated. The way the belt wraps around the canted pulleys is interesting. I also didn't realize at first that those two pulleys are significantly wider than the belt, giving room to find a home that minimizes rubbing. Still, the angle off that silver flat pulley looks pretty extreme, but it apparently works just fine.

For myself, I have (1) a 1025R with a MMM, which it mid-PTO driven, so the belt is flat, (2) despite 10 acres, no lawn to speak of. (The 1025R was bought used and the MMM came with.) So, this is all news to me.
