I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Cruise control not working


Check cruise control cable under hood is tight enough to pull throttle arm.
Check brake pedal . see if wires to cruise control are still attached to switch on brake pedal.
Check magnets are still on drive shaft if rear wheel drive.
Check hall effect transducer is still in place to dedect magnets spinning on drive shaft.
Check Vacuum tubing is ok on cruise control it pulls the cable in and out .
Check if ignition sensing that wire is connected that senses ignition pulses ( front wheel Drive)
Check if a speed sender device is used on speedo cable to create pulse (front wheel drive ) sometimes used to sense speed on some cruise controls.
Check wiring around plugs and sockets under bonnet.

Why does the Secondary Chain keep comming of?


Any time a chain comes off it means there's slack in it or something's not tight enough. Not looking at your bike, I would have to guess that you need to loosen the bolts on the back wheels and then pull the wheel assemblies back until the chain is tight. This is probably a two person job, one to unbolt and bolt and one to apply tension. That being said, many years ago I remember bikes my friends used had a problem where if they were riding at a good speed and then stopped peddling to coast, then slightly reversed peddling, then started fast peddling again, that they would throw a chain. I think what was happening was they were creating slack in the chain by coasting, slightly reversing their peddling, then starting again. The chains were also slightly gummed up, allowing slack at this time.

How do you adjust chain


Flip bicycle up-side-down so it sits on the seat and handlebars. Loosen the 2 nuts that hold the rear wheel on. Sitting behind the bike on the ground, so that you can align the wheel to a straight position, pull the wheel back so that the chain is snug. You don't need to pull hard, just hold the wheel in place and straight. Using the other hand, slowly tighten the axle nuts back down until the wheel is held in place. Once the nuts are tight enough to securely hold the wheel, tighten the nuts. Sometimes this method will make the chain too tight. If this happens, repeat the process as above, only this time when you go to tighten the nuts back down, squeeze the chain slightly to create a bit of slack. Ideally, the chain will be tight enough not to skip or slip, and at the same time, loose enough not to make noise, bind up, or do any damage.

There are "chain tensioners" available that hook around the rear dropouts of the frame and also around the axle, allowing you to tighten the chain to exact specs. simply by tightening or loosening adjuster screws. They will also help to keep things from loosening up over time. These make things much easier and I highly suggest looking into them.

Use any of a variety of oils and lubes available, but try to avoid WD-40 for chain lube. It will stop a squeak for now and make things seem to move smoother, but in the long run, WD-40 will attract dirt and debris to the constantly moving parts of your chain and can shorten the life of a chain considerably. Hope this helps.

I have a Craftsman, front wheel drive mower. I have replaced the front (drive) wheels every 6 months for the last two years. The plastic gears on the wheels just get chewed up. What is the problem?


Must be a bad mower that got thru the assembly line somehow. I have owned a front wheel drive Craftsman mower for 7 yrs and have never had one single problem with anything on it.

Poulan pro front wheel drive 22 inch mower. With height adjuster set to highest level, right front wheel keeps slipping out of the adjuster notch. Is there an adjustment screw somewhere?


Is the height adjuster tight on both sides? if loose the bolt holes may be elongated, both sides set the same? any wheel wobble indicating worn out wheels?.if it checks out as good put the machine an a known hard level surface such as a garage floor and check the clearance by turning the wheels by hand without putting pressure on them, If the wheel still slips the mowing deck may be warped or bent. if all wheels are original there shouldn`t be a question of mismatched wheels ie:different sizes.

I want to replace my old chain with a new one how do i do that


To replace the main drive chain,you need to remove the chain cover on the engine case which should have a couple of bolts or screws securing it. Loosen the back wheel by untightening the rear axle bolts and then loosen the rear adjusters either side. Make a note of their positions they need to be be the same position either side, although the new chain may need a different setting but as long as they are both the same tightness each side is what matters.Loosen the wheel and move it forward when the axle is loose and the pin holding the axle nut is removed.Unscrew the two 6mm bolts holding the front sprocket a the engine side of the chain.Turn the part on the front sprocket where the two bolts have just been removed so that it lines with the gearbox splines and pull it forward along with the front sprocket at the same time as you push the loosened rear wheel the chain should pull away from the teeth on both sprockets.
To put on the new chain just reverse the proceedure.the ajusters need to be tight but not too tight just enough play to move it up and down slightly remember both adjustes need to be the same position each side and check that the wheel is in line with the bike and straight as uneven adjustments will cause the wheel to be turned slightly off the required vertical position.

Mower starts, but won't move forward. I found torn belt underneath. I'm assuming this is a drive belt (are there two--one for each wheel). How do I change it out. (Best way to lift a zero turn?).


First, wedge something in front of the front wheels (when you lift the back, there's no brake action). Get the jack from your car and position it to lift the rear of the mower chassis. Jack it up then put blocks under the rear wheels - you may be able to do both at once, or you may have to alternate - then lower onto the blocks. Get enough space. You'll have to take off the mower belt and remove the PTO clutch anchor (two bolts) and may have to take off the wires connected to the PTO clutch (connector may be above the chassis). Then pull off the spring that tightens the idler arm, remove the old belt (if it's still there) and install the new one. Refasten the spring to tighten the idler, replace the anchor and mower belt, and mow away. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Cable to engage the self propelled pully came loose. How do i reattach it?


Hi,
Instructions
Step 1 Locate the spark plug wire, and disconnect it from the spark plug.
Step 2 Remove the screw that is used to secure the belt cover to the mower with a screwdriver. Take the belt cover off of the mower.
Step 3 Loosen the belt tension bolt with the socket wrench. The belt tension bolt is located next to the wheel adjustment lever on the left front of the mower.
Step 4 Pull the front part of the drive belt off of the transmission pulley that is located on top of the motor.
Step 5 Tilt the mower on its side, and pull the rear part of the drive belt over the mower blade.
Step 6 Insert the rear of the new drive belt over the mower blade, and place the front of the belt over the transmission pulley.
Step 7 Tighten the belt tension bolt with the socket wrench.
Step 8 Locate the adjuster nut located on the underside of the mower near the belt tension bolt.
Step 9 Tighten the nut with the wrench until it touches the spacer, and slightly loosen the nut so that the spacer can turn.
Step 10 Set the belt cover back onto the mower, and secure it with the screw.
Step 11 Re-connect the spark plug wire to the spark plug.
Good Luck!

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.
