Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

2 Answers

I have a 20hp turbo twin cylinder, 42" w/ 6-speed manual transmissiom. I just replaced a broken drive belt and when I started the mower the gear shifter was very hard to put into gear and the clutch would not disengage the transmision. I adjusted the clutch but this did not fix the problem. Also when the mower is running in gear, I can not change gears or put it into neutral. When the mower is turned off I can move the shifter into all gears. I have to turn off the mower to stop it and change gears. Any suggestions? Thank You

You might try putting an inline valve in the fuel line feeding the carburetor or simply clamp the line shut to see if that works.
It sounds like hydro lock due to fuel getting into the cylinder when the engine is not running, Briggs had an issue with it along with others, some (like Honda) have a solenoid in the float bowl to stop the fuel flow. If this works install the valve, shut it off and let the tractor idle a minute before shutting down the engine

find your local mtd distributor, the fact that it is an 18.5 v twin briggs and the 42 inch cutting width will tell them what model you have, then you can go to mtdproducts.com and order a manual, or get it from the distributor, serial number or model number will get you a manual or parts book

Craftsman 20HP , can't stop freewheeling,


Sounds like your problem is the key in your rear wheel is missing or sheared, you have to remove the wheel @ tire assembly ,pull rubber cap off then clip to remove if one of the keys is sheared or gone it will go into gear and the brake will work ,but they will only stop the shaft without the key it will not move or brake becuase its not attached if you know what I mean.
