I just recently purchased this used and was told it might need new belts. What are the symptoms of needing belt replacement or new motor?

Then it needs to be taken down and serviced by someone familiar with the deck. Grease hardens, old junk that had accumulated on the flywheel and idler drive turns into teflon. This is not a job you can take on.

Thanks Jan!

I had not thought of the old grease. I live in Los Angeles so i am sure I can get it serviced. Thanks so much for your help. :-)
