SOURCE: windshield wipers / one works and one does not.

Sounds like you need to replace or repair wiper arms as a unit Because one was jamming up it caused the other to stop as they are joined to work in sync with each other.its now a simple case of remove and replace.Is the one that doesnt work stiff or hard to move in any way?Whatever is binding on that arm is the ultimate cause of your problem.

SOURCE: shuts down in reverse

I'm not familiar with that particular mower but I'd bet it is a direct switch. Follow the shifter arm down and you should see a arm or button that arm contacts a switch when you put it in reverse. pull the two wires off that switch, put a wire in between to connect them and it is by-passed.

Please rate if this helps-

SOURCE: Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up

Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!

SOURCE: Belt cam off my Bolens ridding lawn mower 2005

I have the same issue on my neighbors lawnmower.
Good thing is though, the manuals are available online.
Bad thing is the actual service manual, you can buy from their 800 number.
What I did, was merely copied pages from the parts manual, as well as the owners manual. Looks like my Craftsman, whereas you need to take the top off ( seat and back cover ) to get to the two drive belts.
It is not as bad as it looks, especially with the photos helping.
Word of advice, any pulley pley, replace all parts relevant, especially attaching nuts. If not, utilize a threadloocker. Ensure to torque to spec as well with torque wrench, the blades when doing those. Typically, people need to change these at the same time, as maintaining is usually not handled partially, it is usually not at all.

Where is the pcm located

Have you tried resetting the Inertia switch? This switch will cut off power to the fuel pump. It is usually behind one of the kick-panels. It is a safety switch and has a reset button on it. It can trip by mistake when you shut a door or make any impact motion. It is suppose to prevent gas fires in an accident.

Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It

Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt

Engine ticks over but chain doesnt move

make sure the brake isn't on. The piece that is in front of your hand at the top of the saw should be pulled back until it clicks into place to release the brake. This is there so if the saw kicks back at you this piece will hit your hand and go forward and stop the chain before it hits you. Hope this helps...
