Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
My 14 year old craftsman riding mower is stopped in the yard and won't start because the mower deck won't disengage, I can move the stick up to engage it but it only comes about half way down and won't go any farther. Help.
With the engine off, reach under your deck and pull on the belt. This will force the idler arm back into disengaged position so you can start it. You can probably free the mechanism up with penatrating oil by spraying the pivot point on the idler arm ( the bracket the idler is mounted to that moves back and forth) while alternatly engaging the lever and pulling the belt till it frees up and returns by itself.
