    Since the Lazer Z is a hydro I didn't think it had mule drive anything.

    Mule is the HUGE belt that goes from engine to deck.

    You are referring to the deck belt, not the mule drive, I think. And the pivot on the arm rather than the pulley. I have a Kees that is very similar and have not had that problem. Most likely there is a bronze bushing or some kind of bushing in the arm that is worn out. Just a guess.
