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.

SOURCE: Murray Peerless transaxle slow forward

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.

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.

Engine surges after warm


If your engine has an adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb. try adjusting that at high idle first also if you have a low idle screw. If that don't clear the surging than you might have to take the carb. off and clean it. If cleaning the carb. out dose not do it you may need to put a new carb. kit in. Any questions feel free to ask.
