Ariens 1740 zoom speed adjustment

I cannot seem to get the same forward speed out of the left side as the right side. its a definite difference. the adjustment on the top by the seat are not the issue. I have messed with the adjustments underneath, but just cannot seem to get the left arm to go as far down/forward as the right side. any suggestions?

SOURCE: won't turn right

Had this on my riding mower. The steering rod going to the wheels from the steering assembly was bent. Take it off and straighten it and re-install.

You can adjust the right arm backward to compensate for the left being slow. Look for a slotted hole that allows you to adjust it. But what you really need to know is why the left side is not pulling as it should. Have you checked the hydraulic fluid at the pump?

If tires are the correct inflation, check the angle of the deck. The blades may need to be sharpened. There is a blade balancer you can purchase. If one blade is not as sharp as the other, it will have a little more weight on one side than the other.

I think the only logical conclusion is that your hydrostatic transmission is shot. If you know the model number, I think they
are stamped on the bottom, you can look over on ebay. There are some NOS vendors over there and they may have one. There are also mower junkyards around, believe it or not, and if you can find one you may find a serviceable replacement.

I have an arians zoom 34 zero turn mower...seems after it gets hot (about 30 min) the left side doesn't want to go....could it be low on tranny fluid? can you check and fill if it is? thanks chris...


If you are not hearing any noise coming from the wheel motor on the left side and you fluid level is good you have two choices to chose from. One, raise the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Run the units wheels forward and reverse for about five times each and then try it again. If this works, you just bled the hydraulic system of air. If this did not work, you need to have the left pump flow tested at your nearest shop and most likely you will have to replace the pump. Hope this helps. P.S. When was the last time you changed the hydraulic fluid and filter? George

BATTERY HAS FULL CHARGE WHEN I TRY TO START IT IT DOES NOT TURN OVER NO CLICKING NOTHING CAN SOMEONE HELP ME. ARIENS 1740


Check to see if the solenoid is getting power. On the solenoid there are 3 wires. Two big, one from the battery, the other going to the starter. The 3rd wire is what activates the solenoid. Using a test light or volt meter. See if its getting power on the small wire when you turn the key. If no power, ignition switch, safety switches or fuses. If you are getting power replace the solenoid. If you have 4 wires. Test the two smaller ones.

SEtting tempo on metronome Zoom R24


The metronome speed is controlled by the Tempo setting. The metronome controls only adjust the volume of the metronome and if the metronome is heard on the input or output recording. The R24 manual is available here: http://www.zoom.co.jp/downloads/r24/manual/ . See page 20 for setting the Tempo. The Tempo button is below the Tempo label to the left of the LCD display on the right side of the Zoom R24.

I hope this helps.

The engine will not stay running (Ariens 34' Zoom)


a lawn mower is not much different than a car, you still need 3 things to make it run: fuel, electricity, and a spark. you say it doesnt stay running, Before trying to make any repairs, ensure that you are using the correct fuel, also make sure the fuel lines are not leaking or crimped. if the lines seem fine, check the fuel filter and/ or fuel pump. though the mower is new, they can still have faulty componets.
