Question about Garden

1 Answer

When I put the lawn tractor mower in drive I feel don't hear a thunk thunk in the drive pedal it is at the same interval all the time.

Possibly the drive belt? Or is there a transmission or differential needing oil. It is at least 15years old. Can't remember ever feeling this before. Cant find anything in the manual.

Very possible that a piece of the drive belt has come apart due age and the belt need replacing. If this is the case make sure you check all the idlers for failing bearings,

Why isn't something engaging when accelerator pressed?


It would help to know more information about the mower in question. Walk behind push mower? walk behind self-propelled mower/ Riding lawn mower? Lawn tractor? Or goat...just kidding...lol. The engine horse -power or cc's and make of the mower and engine. Anything happen before the problem or was it straight out of storage. Does the gas pedal feel normal? Could you be talking about the forward/ reverse pedal? These types don't engage by depressing them, they engage by releasing the pedal.
I'm going to guess you have a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor. The pedal for those types of mowers controls the transaxle ( rear wheels, transmission and differential basically). If the pedal move properly and it was working ok when it was stored, then check to see if you can push it with little effort. On most transaxles there is a disconnect rod to disengage the transaxle for towing the mower without damaging it. Pulled out for disengaged and in for engage. If that all checks out it could be very low on transmission fluid or the drive belt might be off or broken depending on which type you have. If it is low on fluid, you have a leak. Hope this helps.

How to install Mower blade drive belt on 19.5 HP Craftsman 42" Lawn Tractor-Model # 917.270810, without removing mower from tractor.


Hi donsig245,
What I do is to drop the mower assembly to the ground, then I have enough room to install the drive belt without having to remove the mower assembly. You could put the tractor on blocks to lift it up higher so the mower might go a little lower, but it is the same procedure to install the belt. That is the only way I know to install the belt without removing the mower assembly. I know this is not what you wanted to hear, maybe somebody might have another idea that would help you. Regards and good luck.

Steps needed to change transaxle belt


lift the front of the tractor up at least 3 feet and lower the mow deck to give you clearance. push the clutch pedal and lock it down to release belt tension. remove the mower belt from the engine pulley only. remove the trans belt from the idlers about midway back then from the trans pulley & finally from the engine pulley. put the new belt around the engine shaft above the mower drive pulley but not on the drive pulley then around the trans pulley. now you can put it on the drive pulley and finally on the idlers. make sure you have it under all the various keepers or the belt will shred in like 10 minutes. release the clutch pedal & check the belt again to ensure it is in the correct place. replace the mower drive belt & ensure that didn't come off other pulleys in the process. lower the front of the tractor and test

I'm having trouble replaceing the motion drive belt on my LT1000 lawn tractor. The mowing deck is off, the old drive belt is off. I can't get the belt around the transaxle pully. Any suggestions?


Often there is a keeper on the back of the pulley, and the belt must go inside the keeper. Get an inspection mirror up in there to look if necessary. Start by putting the belt on the transaxle pulley, then on the PTO pulley, then on the idler, last have someone sit on the mower and depress the clutch pedal while you put the belt over that pulley.

My craftsman 17hp lawn tractor shutters bad when releasing the clutch pedal. is it the clutch and where is it located?


Its not really a clutch, clutch/brake pedal when pressed will release belt pressure which stops pulley from turn axle. When predded all the way down it mechanically applies brakes. The vibration is from a bad pully that the drive belt rides on or a bad belt. Look for chucks of belt missing.With engine off put on parking brake and manually wiggle each pulley that drive belt rides on to see if there is any play. No play should be present. Good luck.

Drop mower deck and have a look.
Both rods run to the rear on the right side.
Possibly something interfering.
