SOURCE: toro timecutter spits and sputters when blades are engaged

Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done

SOURCE: toro mower dies when i try to pull out

Disassemble carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Make sure that the small screen is free of debris. Reassemble and start.
If this doesn't work, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace all the appropriate parts.

SOURCE: Problem Engaging / Disengaging the Blades

Two separate issues:

For free wheeling blades, it is time to replace the following items:
Brake Arm Pad Assembly # 131845X900 (Item 53 in picture)
and depending on condition:
Torsion Brake Spring(s) # 140086 (#58 in picture)
Take a look at Idler Pulley # 131494 (#36 in pictur, checking for wear. Sand and other abrasives will eventually wear the pulley down.

For engagement of handle: Lubricate all moving parts associated with the handle. Use only a dry film moly lubricant. Do NOT use WD40 as it is a penetrating oil and offers very little lubricating properties. Do not use oil as it will only attract dirt and eventually clog everything up.

The idler pulley previously described is on an articulating arm that must move freely, otherwise it will be (1) hard to engage and (2) cause slack when disengaged. In addition, this will result in premature belt failure.

FYI, although a Craftsman badge, this is an AYP (American Yard Product) tractor with a Murray Deck. Keep this in mind when ordering parts so you don't pay for "name branding".

Please let me know if I may assist further.

Best regards.

SOURCE: blade engagement lever won't disengage

If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

Toro zero turn starts fine and stalls as soon as I disengage brake


Sounds like the seat switch is not reading you are in the seat. Without a wiring diagram, it is difficult to say exactly.

I jave a toro timecutter z5035 and it starting making a popping noise when running. When blades are engaged the blades turn slow and the engine idles down and then will pick up running for for 30 sec


clean the spark plug or even change it , when you store it you must run it out of gas which means shut the gas off so the gas does not turn into polish that clogs you carb , needle and seat etc ,

I was mowing and the blades stopped turning. I disengaged and re-engaged the blades a few times and they started back. Then a few minutes later the blades stopped again then the motor stopped and will...


I have no idea what type or model of mower you have but if I was to guess I would say it has an electric pto clutch on it, if so remove your pto belt and clutch. I would bet it is burned out and locked up preventing your motor from turning over. Once the clutch is removed I will bet it will start and run fine. This is not a cheap fix but relatively easy one. Hope this helps.
