There's actually a Troy-Bilt Pony riding lawn mower as well.  If yours is like ours, a model 13AN77TG766 [URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf], it doesn't actually have gears but rather a variable-speed pulley.  The lever on the dashboard actually controls how high the brake pedal will go, while the brake pedal controls the position of the variable-speed pulley, which controls the effective gearing ratio.  That's how it can go at any speed with the engine still going at the same rate and without having to disengage a clutch.

So perhaps your mower is engaging the parking brake too early (page 17 of our manual).  The other thing I can think of is grass in the variable-speed pulley.  To check that, remove the spark plug and the battery (7/16-inch socket).  Then move the shift lever through its full range and check the shaft of the variable-speed pulley (part 63 on page 34) for debris, both above and below the loose plate thingy.  (You should be able to turn it quite easily if you put the forward/reverse lever in neutral.)

Hope that helps!

### How do I replace the clutch cable on my honda self propelled hrx217hxa push mower , the one that engages the rear wheel drive.

I fixed the drive cable just yesterday. If the model is exactly hrx217hxa with the serial number between MAGA–1000001 and 139999 as mine is, it can be quite involved to replace the cable if this is the first time, because honda wants to replace the "control arm" as well. You can find a detailed instruction to replace the drive cable from the following link.

The part number that you need to order is 06225-VH7-305, which comes with a very brief instruction on how to replace based on the service manual (not the user manual). The above link will guide you to how to replace the cable, but since the transmission end of the cable changed, you need to replace the "control arm" as well. This requires to disengage the drive "belt", which is the first challenge. Once you disengage it, it is relatively straight forward to replace the "control arm" if you have the right tools (1/8" pin punch and a challen lock plier which are described in the instruction that came with the cable kit).
Engaging the drive belt back on is the biggest challenge in the whole process, unless you have the right tool to handle the powerful spring that pulls the whole transmission to give friction to the drive belt. I spent two hours to try to engage the belt without the right tool (probably you need a "brake spring tool"), and I finally did it.
The rest of the assembly process is straight forward if you memorize what you did for disassembly. The above link can help you as well.
I took pictures of every step, and am going to post it somewhere soon, but if you want to replace it soon, please send me a message if you need help.

### Belts need replacing how do i do it?

Pull washer out a couple of feet and tilt it back, lifting the front. Rest against the wall. The belts are on the bottom. Remove the drain pump belt, and you'll get to the drive belt. The motor is installed on a plate and held by a spring. To install the belts easier, push motor towards the transmission pulley when installing new belts. Part numbers: 211124 for the pump belt, and 211125 for the drive belt. Set of both belts: 12112425.
The set of both belts includes an instruction sheet also.

### Install belt on toro mower model 70041

For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

Useful diagrams for removing the cutting deck, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14794

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

### Had to change the small drive belt that drives the transmission on a Troy-Bilt 42'' 17.5 HP Pony mower. Now it only has one speed forward, slow!! Didn't touch anything-got the OEM belt replacement. Any...

You need to adjust the gas pedal. Info should be in the owners manual. I have it in my Troy Bilt Bronco manual. It say to adjust it in my book after replacing the trans drive belt. Maybe that will help.

### MY WFW8300SWOO front load sport washer has emptied and will not spin, door remains locked will not open, unplugged unit for 3 hours and nothing is working it acts on it own. It has no error codes on...

It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

• Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.

• The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.

If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

thanks and please do not forget to accept the solution

### I need to replace the drive belt to the transmission

On the side of the deck there is a metal rod running along between the tires. Push it back then pull it forward when it releases from the catch it will move the pulley and release the belt. Hope you can figure it out I believe it is on the side with the brake pedal.
