I have a cub cadet lt 1042 ,when I start mowing it will go the regular speed for a while then it will slow up


The adjustment of the hydro is time consuming easy adjustment . Make sure hydro fluid is filled to the top and your belt that runs the cooling fan is ok . Your brake adjustment should be checked also . Same type of spring threaded double bolt set up . Might be dragging ?
Remember it is easy to adjust the system but it is turn the bolt and spring, lock the bolt, drive it - some machines that come into our repair shop just do not have the ground speed anymore .
Mostly caused by never cleaning the piles of dead grass sitting on the rear axle - it is air cooled too and owners neglect to keep the engine, deck,rear axle clean .

I replaced fuel pump, cleaned carb, checked timing, i believe i timed right, with business card, replaced fuel & filter, plugs, how would i check all timing points?


im not sure what problem you are having with it there is a key that aligns the crankshaft to the flywheel and the timing many over look is the valves just being out of adjustment throws off the timing briggs have adjustable valve and kohler has hydro

I have a troy bilt 42 inch 17 hp lawn tractor. The problem is when I cut grass and i get in some thicker grass the blades turn off then I back out the blades restart. The engine never bogs down


One or more of your drive belts is in need of adjustment or replacement, maybe. Possibly, your electric (or manual) PTO clutch could also be adjusted. You do have the spring tensioner on the deck engaged, right? You say the engine doesn't bog when this happens so I am inclined to think "clutch" and/or "PTO belt" to the deck and/or the "deck tensioner" are the things to check.

The tensioner will be the easiest, it is a handle on the left side ON the deck. Has a BIG spring on it. Make sure it is engaged.

Is yours a Troy Bilt manufactured in Troy New York or is it another manufacturer (MTD?). Troy Bilt is actually out of business, having sold the Troy name to a variety of makers depending on the model line. I don't have the run down on who makes what any more (tillers, chippers, mowers, blowers, trimmers, etc.), but Troy Bilt of Troy, NY is no more. :-(

I have a 16 HP Troy with 42 inch deck driven through a electric clutch. I also have a "grass pump" on my deck. Important maintenance tips: Keep the bearings greased, keep the deck clean underneath. The belt on the deck should have the tensioner released when you are NOT mowing. Keep the blades sharp and in good repair. Mow with engine at full speed. When you get to areas of heavy growth, slow the tractor down (hydro drive) or reduce to a lower gear (gear drive). NEVER adjust speed using the "clutch" (hydro drive or gear drive). When you engage the blades (electric or manual) always have the engine just above idle, bring the engine speed up slowly to preserve the belts and reduce stress on all components.

I am sure this is the fix for your trouble. If there is anything else or if I missed the ball, please let me know and we will go further.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Craftsman GT 3000 will not drive forward or reverse,belt seems ok


Is it a hydro drive or gears? If hydro the trans-axle is bad & needs to be replaced. It is an easy but expensive job.

check your kick down cable attached to the carb, it may be out of adjustment and forcing the trans to stay in "passing gear"

I own a Snapper riding mower, hydrostat drive, 14.5 Hp, 38 cut. Reverse speed has suddenly been reduced to a crawl. Could it be the brakes need adjusting or is the engine/transmission shot?


could be a linkage came loose, or that the fluid level in trans is low, has nothing to do with engine but the hydros are prone to failure, also the hydro is driven by a vbelt which can stretch and mimic a trans problem
