Reverse is a different gear set than forward gears. Sounds like forward gear set has a broken tooth. Not an easy fix.

SOURCE: Craftsman riding mower won't move.

yes it is a bad belt unless it is a hydro-stat(no clutch) you need to look under the mower and see if the belt is on correctly

SOURCE: i need an owners manual for a murray riding mower.

First off, confirm that the tractor is in Neutral and the deck is not engaged. You also need to be on the seat, and in some cases your foot must be on the brake. Then try it.

If by "jump" you mean essentially connect one end of a jumper cable to the battery power coming to the solenoid, and the other end of the SAME jumper cable to the 6 gauge (+/-) wire on the other side of the solenoid that goes to the starter, and it cranks, this means one of two things.

More than likely it is the solenoid that is bad, but the only way to confirm this is to make certain that when you turn the key, it sends power to the small (18 gauge) wire on the solenoid. This is easy to check with a test light.
If power is goes to the solenoid when the key is turned, but the engine fails to crank then the solenoid is bad.

If no power is there, then the problem has something to do with either the ignition switch or ignition wiring, or more likely it is a failure of one of the safety switches, under the seat, transmission in gear, sometimes if the deck is engaged, or other.

One way to confirm that the problem is with a safety switch or ignition switch and rule out the solenoid would be to jump a wire directly from the positive terminal to the small wire on the solenoid that comes from the ignition. If this causes the engine to crank, then the solenoid is OK.

Those units are self adjusting. No way to adjust it. It sounds like you have a bad idler pulley or a bad spindle bearings, which would cause the pulleys to be out of alignment.

Had to change the small drive belt that drives the transmission on a Troy-Bilt 42'' 17.5 HP Pony mower. Now it only has one speed forward, slow!! Didn't touch anything-got the OEM belt replacement. Any...


You need to adjust the gas pedal. Info should be in the owners manual. I have it in my Troy Bilt Bronco manual. It say to adjust it in my book after replacing the trans drive belt. Maybe that will help.
