    Model number 917.252521.Spring apears to be good and strong. Could it be the engine pulley? I also suspected a spring. I only see the one large one.

    Thank You....

Craftsman Garden Tractor 26 HP 6 speed transaxle First mow of the season. mowed 15 ft. pressed in clutch to look behind at how it was mowing let clutch out to go no forward movement. belt seams good.


Make sure the transaxle disengagement lever is not in the neutral position. On most lawn tractors, this lever is a stiff wire -- sometimes with a loop on the end -- that sticks out of a slot above and to the right of the trailer hitch bracket on the rear panel, below the seat. Most tractors move under their own power when the wire is all the way in, and can be rolled around without the engine running when the wire is pulled out.

My craftsman tractor wont pull itself up a hill. Runs fine but just comes to a stop when trying to go up a hill. Maby the ground drive belt is slipping????


Sounds like your drive belt is slipping alright. Need to tighten your clutch rod. One end of rod adjust. Have someone help you, move the clutch petal and your helper watch and see rod moves.

Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.

Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.


Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....

Craftsman 26hp Garden Tractor PTO not working


If you changed the belt make sure it did not interfere with the wire that runs from the pto clutch, sometimes that belt can rub on the wire and wear through it,also if you had the clutch off make sure you aligned the steel retainer bolt that sets in the alignment hole on the pto clutch,this keeps the clutch from spring when disengaged if you don't get that pin through the hole in clutch it can push on the clutch and bind it.Also it may be possible to plug that pto switch in backwards.Also if you jumped the fuse out it may now have burnt the switch or wiring somewhere.
