Tractor will not move under it's power.

Make sure you routed the drive belt correctly there might be an idler pulley you missed, make sure the belt is firmly on the trans axle, if so, put the rear end up on blocks and see if the wheels turn then, if they do put pressure against both rear wheels and see if you can stop them. If these wheels are on keyed axles and one key shears it wont drive because the drive wheel is the one that turns the easiest. so pull the wheel and check for a missing or sheared key. Replace key for an easy fix.

The right rear wheel is not driving. Can you help

You probably shears something. There's probably a keyway with a broken shear key in it or perhaps a spring pin or clevis/hitch pin that's been broken. Try to look in the hub where the shaft goes through it coming from the transmission, if you see holes you need some sort of pin. If you take the wheel completely off and see a keyway in the shaft, you probably sheared the key and need a new one.

Hit a stump with lawnmower, now wont start

You may have sheared the flywheel key. This throws the timing off. If the shaft isn't bent replace the key.

My craftsman lawn mower started fine I pushed it about 100 feet it died won't start has gas and oil got it last summer

Here is one suggestion,that may help. When mowing,did you hit something hard,like a root or maybe a small stump. There is a key to a key way under the fly wheel. The key has to line up with the key way for the motor,to run. This is a way that the motor is timed. This key is made to shear off if the mower hits something solid,this is to protect the motor crank shaft from damage. To get to the key,to check to see if has sheared,you must remove the fly wheel. If the key is sheared you will have to purchase a new key,any lawn mower parts store has them. If you don't have a part number,that okay,just give the model # of the motor and the horse power. The parts department can look up the key. If this is a problem,for you,than take the sheared key to the parts department,and they can match up the key,by actual seeing the key. Remember this,you must have some mechanical knowledge,when doing this repair work. The flywheel usually comes off with little effort,then again,on some fly wheels has to removed with a puller tool. I hope this helps. Sincerely,Brad Locke

30 in. craftsman snow thrower,model no. 247.883960,pulls to the right

If your blower uses the two wheels to drive which I think it does I would suggest that you have a shear pin on the right side that is broken. If that is the case you will have to pull the wheel off and replace the shear pin. You can tell if it's broken by lifting the right side and trying to turn the wheel by hand.If it turns easily its broken.
This is an idea only. You might want to check both wheels as I'm not sure as far as the steering is concerned.

John deere 185 transmission

The easiest to check would be to remove the wheel and check to make sure the key is in the shaft on the axle. The rear wheels are keyed to the axles from the transmission and they are possible to shear. Also when the wheels are removed there will be an e-clip holding the wheels on. If one has broke that could be a reason your wheel seems to be coming off. If all there checks ok, the transmission will have to be replaced as John Deere does not make replacement parts for most and if they are available it is cheaper to replace the transmission. Let me know how you come out and if you need any more assistance, Daniel.
