Question about Garden

Sold as Ranch King at Quality Farm & Fleet goes in drive very slow

I am a single mom that recently was laid off due to the slump in the automotive industry. My MTD is a hydrostat which I bought new in the spring of 1997. I had a tune up last spring by a repair shop here. Now it will start, but it doesn't want to drive but at a snail's pace.It also makes a strange like grinding sound. I need to know if it is worth fixing, or is it junk. PLEASE HELP. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I think you just need a new drive belt. This is easy to fit. Remove the seat and back cover to axcess it. The grinding noise could be the pully rubbing against the belt tentioner because the belt worn or to big. Hope this works for you.

I have a 2001 F150 king ranch 4x4 that blows a fuse while selecting 4 wheel drive


What fuse blows ? The four wheel drive switch is a input to the GEM - generic electronic control module , low voltage ! There are a few different relays, a shift motor on the transfer case . There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the GEM module . You can find free wiring diagrams at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Do you know how to do basic automotive electrical testing ? When you turn the switch to engage the 4X4 , the GEM see's that input an then energizes a relay to engage the 4X4 . Knowing which fuse blows would cut down on the guess work !

I want a drive belt diagram for a ranch king pro riding mower?


It's easier to find the correct information with a model number.
I have found a owners manual listed under MTD 130-390A
owners manual for a 2002 ranch king riding lawn mower.
Hopefully this is the same as yours.

I am trying to find info for a ranch king pro rear tine tiller, the engagement cable is broken and i can't seem to find any cable to replace it with or anything about a ranch king pro tiller, the engine is...


Looks like Ranch King Pro is made by MTD. The part is probably the same, but to be safe, take your old cable off and take it to a lawn equipment service shop to match it up. Shouldn't cost more than $10 - $20.

I need a belt diagram for a ranch king king plus also i need to know the size for the main drive belt


Ranch King is a brand name of the manufacturer MTD.

Product manuals with part blow-up diagrams are available from MTD's web site,
http://www.mtdproducts.com/
Models are identified from the model number printed on a label under the mower seat.
The PTO and deck drive belts are shown on one diagram and the transmission drive belt is shown on another. The Form number on my printed Operator's Manual is 770-10526A (22HP, 46in cut) for Hydrostatic 817/818 models.

Parts can be ordered directly from MTD or other distributors on the web.

It is my experience that original brand name MTD belts work best.

The 22HP, 46" mower deck Ranch King Pro has 3 belts:

The drive belt which runs from the engine pulley back to the hydro drive unit to provide over-the-ground propulsion is part #754-0349.

A mower has either an electric PTO or a manual PTO, not both.

The electric PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs around the electric clutch on the engine shaft (activated by electric switch, not the mechanical hand lever that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0476 for the 46" deck.

The manual PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs off the pulley on the engine shaft (activated the mechanical hand lever to the left of the steering wheel that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0228 for the 46" deck.

The deck belt that goes around the 3 blade spindle assemblies on the mower deck, to drive the grass cutting blades is p/n 754-0349

In my experience, the PTO belt lasts about half a season, the other belts break about every other season when mowing 4 acres weekly.
