Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I'm wondering if the brake somehow got messed up - as if the mower thinks the brake is still engaged when it's really not. Did you lose or forget to install shaft key that ties the rim or wheel hub to rear axle. Look at the trans axle drawing,on each axle near the end of shaft is a key,get number off drawing,look at parts list for that number,see if a sq key or a woodriff key(half moon)key may have come off with rim & fell out later,if key on either wheel missing or sheared tractor will not move.
DId you just have a tire off??
I had the same problem- took it in thinking it was the transmission and it was the " key " that goes into the shaft on the wheel hub. If you took the tire off and did not replace the Key when you put the tire back on it will mimic the symptoms of a failed clutch or transmission.
The key is a small piece of metal that the is long and retangular shaped. It has a specific groove cut out and you hammer it into place allowing the wheel to catch and move when the transmission engages.
If that is not the case then you really need to have the trans and clutch checked.
