SOURCE: my snapper yard cruiser Lou runs drives turns left right but when I pull the PTO switch the blades will not engage it's a snapper z yard cruiser with kohler engine

There are limit and safety switches in the wiring circuit. When it registers a back-up it disables the blades or turns the engine off. Find the backing switch and try to temporary bypass it

Car has difficulty going in gear even if pedel is fully down


The clutch is not fully disengaging. Adjust the clutch cable to obtain a 1/2 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke. If clutch adjustment is not correct, damage to synchronizers or clutch release bearing will occur. Your clutch should begin to engage about an inch off the floor when releasing the clutch pedal.

How to adjust the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

I have af935 the power takeoff will not turn on at times other times it kick back out would like to know how to adjust it.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

All of the PTO functions are controlled by a combination of safety switches.
1. Clutch Brake Pedal switch
2. Seat occupant switch
3. PTO engaged Switch

(Noted this is a 3 cylinder diesel)

Any one of the three can cause the problem your having.
- One of the main reasons this happens is that the clutch often is not properly adjusted. The clutch must be fully to the UP position. You have to crank the engine without starting it to test this. I use a large screwdriver across the starter solenoid terminals so it does not start. If the clutch brake pedal moves more to the up position when cranking the engine then the clutch is not properly adjusted. The clutch must be adjusted so that the clutch pedal is all the way to the top. I.e the variable speed pulley is fully open. After clutch adjustment test the moder deck / PTO.
- Second reason they kick out is that the occupant safety switch (seat switch) is out of adjustment. Stupid things like a small bump cause the deck to shut down if the seat switch is not right. All you do is adjust it so that it is closer to the seat sensing position... One turn of the locking nuts (lower and upper) clockwise will make a world of difference.
As far as the PTO itself there must be at least a 0.020 gap when it is disengaged. If it is larger than that then the gap needs to be adjusted. The PTO clutch on these needs adjusted at regular intervals. I recommend checking the gap every 100 hours. The PTO clutch is probably out of adjustment there are bolts on the PTO clutch that have springs on them if the springs break it goes out of adjustment just replace the springs and tighten everything up. The other thing to look at would be the engaging lever itself.

One more thing is this PTO clutch has a fuse. I can't remember now where the fuse is but I am certain there is a fuse. Find the fuse and make sure that there are not any problems with the fuse holder. (hot, loose, corroded etc.)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Drive belt is too loose, already replaced belt and pulley. no drive power, plenty of deck power. Tractor is 8-10 years old, drive pulley portion of the double engine pulley split, so I replaced it and...


I had the same problem with my Craftsman Lawn Tractor. The Drive Belt (which is not adjustable) is only engaged when the Brake Pedal is released (the Brake Pedal is located on the left side of the tractor, near the foot rest on my Tractor).

The Symptoms: My Tractor lacked driving power, and would not go up an incline, but the mower deck was powerful and working fine, even though the Tractor seemed to lack power and moved slower than usual, and would not travel up an incline.

I too, changed the Drive Belt, which initially seemed to help somewhat for a very short period of time, and then the same, lack of power problem, re-appeared again. The belt was not the problem, but only seemed to work somewhat due to the rougher texture of the belt's surface against the pulleys.

I also changed the Plastic Clutch Pulleys that engage the Drive Belt, thinking that they may have been worn down to a point that the Drive Belt could not fully engage with these Pulleys. No Luck.

NO ONE, NOT EVEN SEARS ON-LINE REPAIR ADVICE CENTER HAD A SOLUTION. THIS WAS VERY FRUSTRATING INDEED.

There had to be a solution: After much investigation, I eventually discovered the problem, which actually was easy to solve, and I would like to share this simple solution with others facing this same Frustrating Problem.

The Brake Pedal, when released, causes the Drive Belt Clutch Pulleys to move, and thus Tighten the Drive Belt. When you look under the Tractor, there is a Protective Metal Plate mounted to the Bottom of the Main Tractor Frame which covers the Brake Pedal Shaft and attached Mechanisms. Over time, Grass Builds up in between the Protective Metal Plate and the Tractor's Main Frame Deck, creating a very narrow space between these two pieces of metal.

This area is very difficult to get at, and almost impossible to clean out. Over time, Grass Clippings accumulate in this hidden area, and harden to an almost rock hard clump.

These Hardened Clippings accumulated between the Brake Pedal Mechanism and its fully released metal stop position. Thus, preventing the Brake Pedal Mechanism from moving to its fully engaged position.

I used a long screw driver to break up the compacted grass clippings, and an Air Compressor Blow Gun to break up the packed grass and blow the area clear. It takes awhile to do this cleanup, and is a bit messy, so do it outside, but be patient, and be sure to clean out all the grass that is lodged in this hidden area.

What was happening was that the Packed Grass was so dense that the Brake Pedal could not Fully Release, thus only Partially Engaging the Clutch Pulleys and the Drive Belt, hence the appearance of a loose Drive Belt even when the Brake Pedal was released.

Once the Packed Grass Debris was cleaned out, you will immediately notice the Drive Belt being tighter than it was previously when the Brake Pedal is released, and when you test drive the Tractor you'll find that everything works perfectly, like it was brand new.

Good Luck...

How do I adjust the clutch? Clutch engages when


A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.

If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.

Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.

Clutch needs adjustment


as the clutch wears the "free pedal" is reduced ... its easy to adjust "free pedal" and important to do so .. when there is very little or no free movement above where the clutch engages/disengages then the clutch starts to wear rapidly ... if there are no other symptoms like clutch chatter, slipping or noise then the clutch plate likely has some life left if it is adjusted properly and promptly ..

How to adjust clutch pedal nearly fully released before engaging


It's probably a hydrolic clutch and on those there is no adjustment you'll probably just have to bleed the clutch. There is a bleeder screw similar to one for disc brakes on the top or side of the clutch slave cylinder.

I have a snapper rider (hydro), when it's started and u take foot off clutch/brake, it dies, push in clutch again and it catches...could it be the safety switch under the seat? Please help!!!


This does sounds like your safety switch is bad. But you do need to make sure that your clutch it engaging properly also the adjustment could have been changed by vibration also
