Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
I have changed the belt , checked all the gears. If you hold it up the whells will turn. Put it down it just jerks and vibrates a lil. Cant figure it out please help!
Most of the time the engagement lever on the transmission cracks (at the bottom close to the pivot point where it goes into the case, look carefully cause it wont show without pressure on it)and the transmission simply will not engage. i fixed mine with a metal arm i made and no more problems all works a should. if they are going to make these under the troy bilt name they should at least make a decent lever for them.

I had the exact problem on a troy bilt mower. The wheels would spin when in the air but on the ground they would slip. On these mowers there is a plastic lever that the cable housing hooks to that engages the transmission when you pull the handle to make it go. The problem with mine was there was a bracket that stops this lever from traveling too far. In my case it was causing the lever not to travel far enough. I removed about 1/8 of an inch of metal from the bracket to allow the lever to travel all the way. Now the transmission engages and does not slip. Works great.... Hope this helps

I would suspect the cable to engage the self propel has either streached..or the outer caseing of the cable has slipped and needs to be adjusted properly..i hope this helps..Keith
