Repairing a Murray 42" Riding Lawn Mower

While I was mowing, the front suspension came off and the mower drive belt broke. After replacing the belt when I started the engine and the blades started moving, one of the pulleys was very hot, and the engagement handle was very difficult to move.

After a visit to a professional, the lever may still be hard to engage, but eventually mine loosened up. Not sure about the other implications.

Front suspension? If it came down? Are you talking mower deck if so, up front there are some pivot points make sure they are lined up. Make sure you pulled all the dried grass. BTW you can get a big fire when the pulley gets hot. BTDT carry a fire extinguisher in back pack
