59L Belt diagram & Blades

Postby Oscar Meier » Sun Jun 04, 2006 7:46 am

Guys,

I have an old 59L deck that busted the belt. The deck is old enough that the diagram is worn off. I was able to get a new belt from the wood dealer and it's a much heaver belt; but, I need a diagram to get it installed. I know the belt needs certain twist to be installed correctly.

I read another post and there was a good description on belt installation, but a diagram would help me more.

Also, I wanted to remove the blades to sharpen them. I have the same stuck bolt problem. The blade rotation is counterclockwise. Would that be left discharge; thus, right hand thread? I have a good 450# impact wrench and tried both directions and no budge on bolt at all. It does not look like there is any way to get penitrating oil into the bolt threads to help loosen them up.

Thanks for any help.

Oscar:

The Woods 59-LB Rotary Mower Manual should have the routing. The basic manual is similar for all of the 59L series mowers of which I think there are 4 not counting the CL series..

If you look below at Page 7,

Image, I think this is what you need.

Oscar,

If your blades rotate counter clockwise when viewed from above, it's left discharge and therefore left hand thread. Any impact on the blade will tend to tighten it further. A right hand thread in that situation would be a problem from constantly loosening. Chances are yours are seriously over tightened from impacts with foreign objects.

Don't take "no" for an answer! :)

Rudi & George,

Rudi - the picture is just what I needed - one picture is worth a 1000 words.

George - I was afraid of that - I most likely didn't help much with my impact wrench - I'll try loosening the nut correctly - although 450# setting both directions did nothing yesterday - I try a little pentrant just to see if it can possibly work it's way up a little on the bolt.

Thanks again.

Oscar,

Are you SURE you have a 59L deck? If it's on a Cub, the deck probably would be a 59C or a 59C2. The belt routing is similar, but I think it's backwards from the 59L.

30+ years ago I was working on the maintenace crew at the local hospital when they sent me out to mow with a cub running a woods 59. I grew up driving Farmall Hs, but had never been on a cub before. After aobut 30 minutes it threw the belt off. No diagram. Took aobut 15 minutes, but I managed to get it back on.
