I just recently replaced the front drive belt on this mower after the last one finally wore out. Now whenever I put it in forward/reverse it will start to move even if the speed control is set to 0 and i have my foot down on the clutch/brake as hard as i can.

The manual mentions that after a belt change that there may be no difference in the higher speeds, but i seem to be having the oppisite problem, since 0-2 speeds is basically the same. Will my belt stretch eventually? Or do I need to make other adjustments?

Welcome to MTF. When you replaced the belt did you adjust the speed control rod? It took me a couple of tries to get mine right. I have a model 669. If you have a manual it is covered under the speed control section.

If you have an original manual and it dosen't cover it go to the MTD website and download the latest version, it is covered in that.

If you have any questions or problems just ask.
