I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

Why won't my front wheels turn after changing the transmission and belt on my Toro model 20012 lawnmower?


Thjere are 4 possibilities:

One, the wheels have plastic hubs with gearing on the inside shell, they may be stripped and not engaging.

Two the transmission is shot; you can check this by removing the belt from the blade pulley and engage the drive control handle; then manually turn the pulley on the transmission by hand, if the wheels engage the tranny is ok.

If the wheels and the tranny are ok then it could be the cable or belt.

Why isn't Lawnboy lawn mower model NO. 10604 drive not working


Inspect the pulley where the belt loops on the wheel transmission. There is a tension spring, that when you pull the level, it puts tension on the belt. If that spring is missing or the pulley does not provide tension the wheels will not turn because the transmission is not being engaed..

Lawnboy 10665 won't self-propel and impossible to push


If you have the smell of rubber burning the belt isn't gripping. Make sure that there isn't anything stopping the wheels turning like old grass or even a piece of twig. If their clear try adjusting the tension on the drive pully.

I was cleaning my walkway and got too close to the stairs and ran into them and the wheels froze up. It runs fine but I can't get the wheels to even turn at all. Little help!!!


Remove the cover and see if the drive belt has come off. It runs on 2 pulleys, one on the shaft of the mower, and one on the transmission/drive for the wheels. The jar may have knocked it off one of the pulleys. If it is the other wheels that won't turn, then they probably were badly bent and need to be removed and replaced.

Drive belt replacement


You may have a worn worm or sector gear.

You can turn the pulley for the transmission and see if the wheels turn that way. If they turn you may have belt run out or that cable may have come off at the bottom. Unplug before you turn any parts on the mower manually for safetys sake!

Good luck and be careful!

Self-propell won't work


broken or worn out worm/sector gear most likely.

can you spin the drive pulley on the transmission and see if the wheels turn? If they dont spin you have internal damage or wear. If they do spin you either have a worn out drive engagement cable or it has come off the transmission.

good luck and be careful!

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.

The front drive wheels of my 21'' 6.75 craftsman will not engage


Gogs (or gears) in the transmission box have worn down. It is probably cheaper to replace the whole transmission than it is to replace the gears.
