Hi gsrs,

Did you check all down the cable and see if the cable is in good shape, not stretched or frayed and connected at both ends where it should be?

Here is a website with a schematic that might help you: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/toro-20076-2700000012709999992007-lawn-mower-parts-c-121776_127291_127767.html

Choose picture I at the site.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Is the tension spring gone? How is the cable? Usually there is a spring at the end of the cable in which when you pull back on the bar with your hands, this tightens the belt so that it engages with the engine allowing the wheels to turn.

MOWER BLADE DOES NOT DISINGAGE


You need to replace the blade clutch cable that runs between the blade engagement lever just to the right of the steering wheel and the the spring to the idler/clutch wheel on the top of the mower deck. Over time the cable binds in the sleeve/cable jacket preventing the blade from disengaging

Two springs broke underneath the riding lawn mower 3800 and we don't know where to replace them at, they engage the gears.


First make sure you can still engage the blades.Many mowers use a cable attached to a spring to engage the blades.If that is one of the springs,you need a new cable.For the other I will need more information,like what kind of mower is it?How many blades?Another thing to look for is worn or torn holes that the springs attach to.

I have a self-propelled Toro Personal Pace lawnmower, Model 20022. Both rear wheels engage and rotate when I lift the rear wheels off the ground, but when I put the mower back on the ground, the right...


Routine maintenance is required on the drive gears on these Toro mowers and Toro doesn't tell anybody. Put a block under the rear end to lift the wheel off the ground. Remove the wheel. You will see the drive gear. VERY IMPORTANT: take good notes, pictures, etc..when dissasembling. Remove the outer snap ring retainer from the axle shaft. Next should be a thin washer. Remove the washer. Pay very close attention to the gear, as it has to go back on in exactly the same direction. Remove the gear. There is a slot in the axle shaft. Rotate the axle to have this slot pointed up. In the slot is a small key (rectangular piece of metal), remove the key. Under this key is a spring. It, and the key, is stuck in the axle slot, therefore not allowing the gear to drive the wheel. Dig out the key and spring, clean them and the slot. Put a dab of axle grease in the slot and reassemble. In my shop, this is part of a mower tune-up, and is recommended every 50 running hours. That is usually every other year for the average home-owner.
DO NOT TIP your mower over to do this repair. Mowers are just like cars, they like all 4 wheels to stay on the ground. Tipping a mower over can/will cause fluids to go places they aren't supposed to go.
This is a relatively simple repair and can be done with basic mechanical knowledge and basic tools.
Do the other side too, it needs it.
Good luck!

I just got the kit 175067. Have the old one off except for where it's attached to the lever, schedule and weather has kept me from going further. Very simple to reconnect things at the pulley and above but not too sure how to connect the rest onto the lever and haven't had a chance to get a good look at how the old one might be connected yet. Should be a simple fix.

Install belt on toro mower model 70041


For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
  1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
  2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
  3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
  4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
  5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

Useful diagrams for removing the cutting deck, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14794

For deck belt diagrams, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14796

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

Toro Model 20043, Serial 9915314 (1999)


There could be a couple of problems.
One a spring or the cable might have broke.
Two the belt is broken
Three the little cogs inside the wheels are usually molded plastic and they could be stripped out. I would check the wheels first.

Good luck and let me know if this helped.

Toro 22in Lawn mower. Loud gear noise when try to engage drive.


Problem is in the rear pinion gears on rear axle and the design of the axle itself. I have a 2005 model 20041 had the same problem. I found a Toro dealer that had the fix.The problem is creadted by the fact that there is too much "play" in the rear axle. You have to limit that play by installing shims, or washers First, but the 2 new rear pinion gears for the rear axle. While you're at it, you may as well buy 2 new rear wheels because the "grinding" has worn the sprockets on the reas r wheels.Next, get 2 "fender washers", 1/2" ID and about 1" OD. I found it easier to turn the mower over and set it on saw horses to work on it.( drain the gas and oil first). Remove both rear wheels, pinion gears and all the washers etc. (caution - keep all parts from one side together - do not pile all parts together - keep them seperated by wheel - the reason is I believe there is one more washer/shim on the right side than on the left). Now to put everything back together, find a spot on the axle where the washer will fit in between the standard stuff.Install new pinion gears and replace the rest of the washers/shims just as they came off. INstall new wheels and you'll be good as new!
