The traction Drive Belt on my GT245 broke yesterday (Part # M127523). I need any help available in replacing it. Could someone please help me.

View attachment 16548The complete parts catalog is available at type in your model number to view the belt routing and part numbers, if that will help you.

I found it much easier to take the fender body...and the deck off.Remove the seat and then just 4 screws to give you almost complete access.

If that machine is anything like a GX, it makes it easier (and the manual calls for it) to take off the transmission fan. You will also need to manage the belt tension pulley. MAKE SURE that you have a good handle on keeping the spring/idler under control while you thread the belt on it. It"s a pretty honkin" spring!

I agree, if you can pull the fenders then its a good idea. Makes the belt change easy and good time to clean debris from the top of hydro My old 345 was like a zipper in that process for me. I could have the pedals loose, deck knob pulled and a few bolts out and fender off in a few minutes.Pretty sure the 245 is the same setup.
