Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
The mower will pulse real bad while mowing... RPMs will come up then down up then down. If the grass is high is will almost die on the down end of the RMP fall. Any suggestions.
Normally an indication of poor air flow. Replace air filter. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaned to ensure choke is free to operate. Go real slow in tall grass, some mowers don't have the torque to do tall grass, only use 1/2 of the deck width and have side discharge open.

SOURCE: ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT
I agree, it sounds like the mower is fouled with foliage at the blade. Pull off the spark plug wire and tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor, check the underside of the mower for impacted grass clippings.

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

You have to take off a part behind the gears and move it to a slot farther away. Mine was the same way. It's in the manual on how to adjust the speed to go faster.

Take the three screws out of the belt cover. One screw in behind each back wheel. The other is under the mower near the shaft to blade. Remove the tension spring off the transmission. Then remove blade and the cover comes off. You then can put the belt back on. Sounds like fun don't it!

most of the time the engagement lever on the transmission cracks (at the bottom close to the pivot point where it goes into the case, look carefully cause it wont show without pressure on it)and the transmission simply will not engage. i fixed mine with a metal arm i made and no more problems all works a should. if they are going to make these under the troy bilt name they should at least make a decent lever for them.
