Question about Craftsman 20 Hp 42" Deck Lawn Tractor
I changed the rear drive belt on my 17 hp mastercraft and now it wont go forward or backward.
Ok, I see it's and MTD product. Did you replace both belts? The front belt is #954-0280 and the rear belt is # 954-0370. What I would suggest is remove the cover plate between your legs. You'll have to remove the shift knob and two screws. Start the engine, put the gearshift in nuetral and let out on the clutch pedal and observe what's happening. Everything will be working the same as if you were in gear. You should be able to see if there is a problem with one of the belts or the vari-speed pulley. Put the speed selector in 7th (or 6th) gear and push the clutch down then back up, and watch what going on. That's the best I can do without seeing it myself. Hope this helps.
