Have you changed the drive belt since new? also check tension pulley for drive belt, if ok and belt is in good condition, you have a bad drive.

Jack the mower up at the rear and make it stable before doing any work on it, remove the rear wheels by removing the hub caps if they are still on the wheels and remove the cir clip and washer on each wheel and remove the wheels. there will be a key way on each axle when you remove the wheel, make sure they are put back in their place when assembling the wheels onto the axles or you will not have any drive on the wheels
Remove the drive belt, brake rod etc then support the trans axle before removing the retaining bolts and removing the trans axle from the mower. hope this helps.
If you are not mechanically inclined then you should leave the repairs of the trans axle to the mower repair shop unless you are buying a new or reconditioned trans axle, in which case you can fit the new trans axle in the reverse order of removal.

2001 ford windstar the right axle spin slower then the left one. What can be the problem i both two new axle and it stil spin slower then the right but it move better do i need to rebuild the trans

I don't think you can assess the condition of the transaxle by spinning the wheels.
The differential in the transaxle converts power from the transmission to the wheels by a set of gears. It would almost impossible for one side to turn at a different speed than the other.
You may have more drag on the brakes on one wheel, or the fluid in the transaxle could cause one side to go slower with the van off the ground.

I have a 14.5hp craftsman lawn tractor, model 917270514 that is VERY difficult to shift in or out of gear. This mower is about 11yrs old.I can't locate a plug of any type to check the fluid level in the...

Assuming you have a MANUAL (IE non-hydro) transmission ....

Can you shift with the engine OFF? If so, the problem is a dragging dirve belt transmitting power even though the clutch pedal is depressed. Check the adjustment, and that you have FULL travel on the pedal.

If you CAN'T shift with the engine off, then either the linkage is jammed/stiff, or there's an internal trans fault.

If you DO have a hydro trans, disconnect the linkage at the trans and attempt to move the lever on the side of the trans with vise-grips or similar. If you can move it without much effort, the linkage is siezed, if not, then internal trans fault.

After a couple passes tractor will not climb hill. Gets slower then will just stop on hill. The hill is approx. 35 degree incline. I mow up the hill, then back down and mow up again, continuing to mow...

To me it sounds like the hydro unit has developed internal leaks and the pressure lowers as the oil thins from heat.These trans axles are usually replaced as an unit but some can actually be the dealer to see if you can get parts or whether you need to replace the whole thing.I assume you have already tried a new drive belt,tensioner ect. and if so you are down to the trans axle.You may buy some time buy getting rid of the low viscosity oil in the rear end and go to regular hydraulic oil.

My solstice has a clunk from differential area when driving slow or sitting still and release the clutch enough to engage. another trans clutch kit flywheel and diff and still has same problem. 2006

Check the drive shaft u-joints.Another indication of bad u-joints is a vibration at certain speeds (like 65mph).There's play somewhere in the drive train.Check rear suspension too.Jack up back of car so wheels are off the ground,Have someone run the car through a couple gears and look under back of car for exactly where the noise may be.Also while back of car is off the ground w/car off put car in gear so the back wheels dont spin.Grab one of the wheels and rotate it back and forth from stop to stop and listen for any clunk noise.The wheel should turn less than an eighth from stop to stop.
