I have a Atco Balmoral 14s from 2002 which performed well until a couple of weeks. The Cylinder stopped rotating, more or less when mowing, and later during mowing completely. First I thought it was a worn out drive-belt, which I replaced.
But now a couple of weeks after replacing that it start slipping again, turning the belt, into dust really. Black rubber dust, that is.
So it seems that the pulley is not pulled hard enough onto the belt to tighten it around the wheels. I would like to fix this and tightened the cable that pulls the pulley. But it does not seem enough.
Pity I do not have a reference mower that works well, I do not know how tight the cable must be.
I will include some pictures of the situation with cable loose and pulled.
Does someone have an idea what could be wrong?
