SOURCE: Craftsman Transmission problem

Some of these tractors have a friction wheel that is driven off of a flat wheel on the bottom of the engine drive shaft. The rubber ring on this friction wheel could be worn out, or it could be out of adjustment.

SOURCE: Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.

Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....

SOURCE: lawn mower has hydro gear transaxle reverse was

Most of the time when this happens the reverse shift linkage is too short. It is usually cause by either a bent linkage or worn linkage bushings.

The internal shifting fork can be bent inside the transmission which is rare but does occasionally happen... most of the time it is a linkage problem. Also check on the side of the transmission to make sure the shifting lever has not moved from the original position on the Yoke shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I have been losing forward speed over the last 2

The automatic transaxle is driven off a belt that runs from the engine to the top of the transaxle, make sure this belt is not slipping and also ensure the neutral rod in the rear of the tractor is pushed all the way in.

SOURCE: when i put mower in

yes

there is a adjustment under the r/h rear gaurd just under where the lever goes to hydro unit you should see a slot and a adjustment bolt arrangement

make sure you put the tractor in true nuetral 1st then undo the bolt that clamps lever to shift arm / shaft ( this connects to plate that operates swash plate on the pump ) and move the lever either fwd or back until (without moving transmission from true nuetral ) it fits into the nuetral slot correctly and tighten the adjustment bolt - test and adjust as nescesary

Jazzy goes fast in forward slow in reverse


It is supposed to. Forward you can see where you are going and normal steering applies. In reverse, you can't really see where you are going and it is only for backing up. Also reverse steering applies, so you turn left to go right, which is confusing for old folks, especially at speed. In Forward, the throttle should be responsive, slow to fast.

Mower starts but drives very slow or not at all, but fine in reverse.


If this is a hydro unit and it drives fine in reverse then there is no reason why it will not do the same in forward, there is a variable swash plate in the unit to change from reverse to forward, i would be looking at the linkages, if there is not enough movement it will greatly affect speed, check also that the pulley on top of the hydro is tigh and has not stripped the splines.

My scooter is too slow,the battery charges,but it only drives at very slow speed,while going backwards it goes fast.Can you tell me what to do?


I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.
1. Replace the throttle pot and or the speed pot.
2. Sometimes even batteries that take a charge are not strong enough to run the scooter. Have them load tested at an auto parts store to make sure. If you have bad batteries that will make you scooter do what you say it's doing. Don't forget your reverse speed is only 1/2 as fast as the forward speed on all scooters.

Good Luck

Hi. I have an Alko T18-102HD ride on lawn mower that is starting to go very slow in reverse and forward. It gets to the point of slowing to a stop when reversing up a slope. I fitted a new drive belt...


I had the same problem with my Alko going slow in forward and reverse. Believe it or not the problem is caused by a build up of grass cuttings around the hydro clutch mechanism. If you follow the mechanism from the foot pedal you will probably find the actuator is being prevented from engaging by a build up of old grass. Clean it out and you should find it restores normal operation. This has happened to me a few times so now I blow out the grass on a regular basis with an air compressor which stops me having any problems. It also stops a hefty bill from the service dealer :-)

Murray Peerless transaxle slow forward speed. Drive belt was changed and linkages where adjusted. Very slow forward and no reverse.


I think the only logical conclusion is that your hydrostatic transmission is shot. If you know the model number, I think they
are stamped on the bottom, you can look over on ebay. There are some NOS vendors over there and they may have one. There are also mower junkyards around, believe it or not, and if you can find one you may find a serviceable replacement.
