It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.

I have a Toro model number 20622 auto start go forward and backward the blade won't turn it's like it's got a break on it how do I get this to work when I pulled the lever nothing happens


Anon, a lot of these Toro decks do have a type of brake on one of the idler arm and pulley to stop blade. You will have to get a repair/service manual if your owners manual does not show it. Normally can be seen in deck belt installation diagram. If blade brake checks out OK, it is possible one or both blade spindles bearings are seizing.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I replace the Blade Clutch Assembly on a Craftsman mower, model 817.288160?


There is one bolt in center of pto clutch. Its best to have an impact to remove this. If you try to remove with a wrench engine will spin. Remove both belts first. Then simply unplug the PTO, Use impact wrench and remove center bolt and gently pry off. Installation is the reverse order.

How to install Mower blade drive belt on 19.5 HP Craftsman 42" Lawn Tractor-Model # 917.270810, without removing mower from tractor.


Hi donsig245,
What I do is to drop the mower assembly to the ground, then I have enough room to install the drive belt without having to remove the mower assembly. You could put the tractor on blocks to lift it up higher so the mower might go a little lower, but it is the same procedure to install the belt. That is the only way I know to install the belt without removing the mower assembly. I know this is not what you wanted to hear, maybe somebody might have another idea that would help you. Regards and good luck.

Brace the mower blade against the housing of the mower with a block of wood, so that the blade cannot turn.
Using a Strapwrench, a chainwrench, or a pipewrench, secure the lowet part of the starter clutch assembly in the wernch and turn it counter clockwise, looking down at the top of the engine.

Blades won't disengage


Hi,
When the mower is off and the clutch is disengaged you should not be able to physically turn the blade(s) if you can then you need to adjust the blade brake (look on the mower deck and you should see what appears to be a brake pad). Your owners manual will show you how to adjust. If you need a copy of the owners manual then I would suggest going to www.managemyhome.com and downloading a free copy of the manual for your mower (Need model number which starts is located under the seat).
Good luck!

Sounds like you lost the drive key out of the crankshaft, it's usually half-moon shaped and keeps the blade hub and the crankshaft turning together, the bolt just holds it all on the end of the crankshaft.
Hope this helps!
