Self propelled Yardman won't engage - cable problem I think???

Its a 1995 self propelled Yard Man - It has worked great over the years ( I have a small yard and take very good care of this little lawnmower) but recently the back wheels won't engage and propel it forward. Someone said the cable might have broken???Who do I get to look at it or can I do it myself.thanx

Yardman snowblower won't self-propel


Do not start to do this but put the blower in gear like you would run to drive its self and try to turn the wheels by hand and if they turn easily then you may have a shear pin that is broken or missing in the drive pulley.
Just a thought.

What type of oil do you use for 6.5 hp yardman lawn mower mtd 160cc 21 inch self propelled


The manual will call for 30 weight, but 10w30 works just fine. Be careful to not overfill the crankcase. Your machine will take 16 - 18 oz's when the crankcase is empty.

Hi I need a parts and repair manual for the yardman 12a-978q452 mower , I can not finded on line.


I know this was more than a year ago, but I just got one second hand and had to find the same thing. It's made by MTD in Canada. Here's the site to find it. They don't have the manual for the exact same model number, but I've gone through it enough to know it'll work. http://www.mtdproducts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10500&catalogId=20500&langId=-1

How to speed up motor on yardman self propelled lawnmower


You could disconnect the governor linkage at the carburetor and just connect the throttle cable (if it has one) directly to the butterfly plate on the carb. Aftermarket throttle cables (one size fits all) for push mowers are available. If you go this route, be careful not to over rev the motor (esp. when not under load) as you could possibly throw a rod or float a valve.

I bought a Yardman 21" Series 560 self-propelled mower used and the belt was missing. What belt does it take? The manual says 754-04080, but I'm looking for a locally available V-belt. Thank you.


Are you sure the belt part number is not 754-04088?

That is a 33 inch belt. I do not know if you need the 1/2 inch or 3/8 inch wide belt. Pulley size would be the key for belt width. I think it is 1/2. Any local source automotive parts or Lawn Mower supply will have this belt in stock. 1/2 x 33 or 2L 33

If by chance I got the belt part number wrong, (I don't think so) just respond here and we can keep searching for your belt.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Little spark


check the gap on your plug. .030 is what it should be. also make sure that your
kill cable is working properly and not grounding the engine out.
the gap for you magneto should be set to .010 to .012
loosen up the magneto insert a standard business card or 3x5 card
then turn the flywheel so that the magnet on the flywheel pulls the magneto into it. then tight the magneto mounting screws down. try spark now. always use fresh gas. -no-water- if in doubt throw it out.
gas is BAD after only 30 days.
