3160 mower deck

Postby n2crb » Mon May 09, 2016 7:58 pm

Hi all, I've been working on getting a 1974 154 back into mowing shape. Was looking over the 3160 mower deck and see that it does not have a "belt guide assembly" on the deck. Looks like guide part has broken off the mounting plate. Anybody have an up close picture of one? Is this something that absolutely has to be on the deck for it to function? A quick google search has not turned up any for sale.

thanks,

Randy

You might find some information in the manual for the mower listed in the tool bar MANUALS above under NUMBERED SERIES LOBOY above. It contains instructions for mounting and adjustment. Stan

one of mine has homemade belt tightners on it, but the belts are supposed to tighten by sliding the blade castings and require special length belts. thanks; sonny

My 3160 does not have a guide so I expect it to work with out one.
TC131 manual I downloaded form this site shows a picture.
Page 122 or section P page 33 item #16. Not the greatest picture but better than nothing.

My decks have slots in the shell and like I said loosen the blade casting bolts and slide the castings to tighten the belts!---Get proper length and width belts and they will tighten up and run without trouble!
You will break bolts off and have to drill and re-thread castings, but it will be fixed right! thanks; sonny
