I drove 30 minutes to pick up a new belt today, and I put it on and, about a minute after I started running it, I noticed some smoke. Well turns out, the belt looked just as bad as the old one....:banghead3 I don't know what I am going to do. To make things worse, were supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow tomorrow and I have about 5 houses to do... Help!!!

I have kind of calmed down a bit.. I am going to leave it to the hands of my fix up guy that has done work to it before. all of the pulleys turn, the belt was smoking a bit, and when I looked a little bit, it looked like the small pulley was out of line from the big pulley. I checked the routing before I turned on the mower to make sure it was correct and it was. So I think it was something with the idler pulley.

Not to upset any of you guys, but I am going to pull out the trusty ol' walk behind for the rest of the year. I can't have this many problems when dealing with a bunch of houses to do.
