Assuming you have checked the main drive belt and it is snug, I think you have a problem with the hydrostatic drive. These are replaced with used or new, ain't cheap either way.

Can i replace a 17.5 hp mower engine with a 18 hp engine?


You will need to shop carefully. That is not too much of a power jump to worry about ruining axles, gears and the like. BUT, do be mindful that you have to shop an engine to match two very important criteria:

Bolt patterns and spacing: This is how the engine will attach to the mower's deck/chasis.

Output shaft length, diameter, taper and if it's keyed or non-keyed.

If looking to just replace a tired old iron horse, similar make and model to the original with slight power upgrade cannot be helped - but the bolts and shafts will be pretty much spot on.
