SOURCE: PTO cable is real loose. My deck blade will engage

Sounds like the belt is stretched or the tension spring has become detached or stretched. Also check that the pulleys are mounted solidly and run flat and do not wobble. Also check that the idler are has not cracked and twisted (mine did last month and then threw a chukof steel out sideways).

I have been trying to help you. It appears that the "pony" model has submodels as well I will send you this link and please post back with which model is yours. Model numbers are the BIGGEST help I get, because I can research this machine all day and not have the correct carburetor for your exact model. Here are the current Troy Bilt "Pony" Tillers for sale on the net.

    I need to replace the transmission drive belt and need instructions


    There's actually a Troy-Bilt Pony riding lawn mower as well.  If yours is like ours, a model 13AN77TG766 [URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf], it doesn't actually have gears but rather a variable-speed pulley.  The lever on the dashboard actually controls how high the brake pedal will go, while the brake pedal controls the position of the variable-speed pulley, which controls the effective gearing ratio.  That's how it can go at any speed with the engine still going at the same rate and without having to disengage a clutch.

    So perhaps your mower is engaging the parking brake too early (page 17 of our manual).  The other thing I can think of is grass in the variable-speed pulley.  To check that, remove the spark plug and the battery (7/16-inch socket).  Then move the shift lever through its full range and check the shaft of the variable-speed pulley (part 63 on page 34) for debris, both above and below the loose plate thingy.  (You should be able to turn it quite easily if you put the forward/reverse lever in neutral.)

    Hope that helps!

    How to adjust belt tension 42" raftsman lawn tractor cutting deck


    Note: This is about a different mower, but it might be similar enough to yours.  If not, please disregard.  Thanks!

    I had a similar issue with our mower, a 2006 Troy-Bilt Pony model 13AN77TG766 (17.5 HP, 42 inch deck): when I pushed the handle down to engage the blades, it took a good ten seconds or so to start the blades turning; even then, they didn't have enough power to cut the grass.  And on any height setting lower than 5, they wouldn't turn at all.

    The cause was on page 19 of the manual <URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf>: Figure 17 shows the "PTO" cable attaching to a hole on the edge of the deck idler bracket, but it was shipped from the factory attached to a hole in the middle of the deck idler bracket, about 3 cm (1 in.) closer to the front end of the machine.  I reattached the cable to the original hole, and the belt is now good and tight; the blades engage as soon as I push the handle down.

    Now, today, I'm having problems with the belt popping off the right-hand idler (hopefully just needs the deck stabiliser rod adjusting).

    Always remember to remove the spark plug wire before you go near the blades; and watch for hot, sharp, and/or pinching surfaces.

    Good luck!

    Tilller will not run


    Get the model # and serial # off of the sticker. Got to the Troy Bilt site and use the owners manual link. Need to leave off the last 3 numbers of the model #.

    If that site does not have the manual, I've found them on the MTD site. I enter only the first 2 numbers of the model # and then hunt for my manual from the list.

    If all else fails, you can call Troy Bilt at their # provided on the site.

    Hope this helps.
