alright guys, this is on the murray. When you put it in any gear and let off the clutch the belt will grab and you move a little bit and then it will throw the belt. I did a little investigating and found the pulley on the transaxle to be slightly bent. I straitened it up as best i could and it didnt seem to make any difference. Then i noticed that the bolts that hold the rearend to the frame were a little loose. I tightened those up and still no difference. The belt stays on in all gears at idle and about half throttle whether you dump the clutch or feather it, it doesnt change anything. What yall think?

Is this the proper drive belt ??? Sounds like this V belt isn't seating into the pully deep enough, or the pullies are just loose enough that they become miss aligned as it creates a load.

I replaced the belt with a lil bit heavier one and never had anymore problems with it really til recently. Cant take off in any gear higher than 2nd without it popping off. Cant push much snow without it popping off either. Need to get this figured out, gotta get the driveway plowed......

hows the tensioner springs? to much load and not enough tension on the belt would cause it to pop..

The spring seems OK. It may be getting weaker over the years. Im contemplating adding a second spring to help it......
