Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

I have a 4 year old MTD Yardmachine 13.5 hp,38'' mower deck.Mdl. # 13AC762F516 060-1813-6. Ser. #1B155B40302 000001.Recently it started jumping in and out of gear with a jerking motion.It did not do this all the time so I kept using it, but very quickly it got worse and I parked it.This is not a hydro-static driven machine but rather belt driven. I have tried adjusting the speed control linkage and the F-N-R linkage and it seems to change the operation but I can NOT get it to engage and run smoothly as it should. Is there something wrong with the transmission? Please advise. Len Trach 204-667-7010

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

There are two belts, one for the deck and one for the main drive. The main drive belt can be seen on the upper pulley under the engine. Check to see if it has slipped or broken.

Wont start and lost manual for a mtd yardmachine 8/26


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets...but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor. If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank. When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position. That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out. Please rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this helped

Yes worn belts do stretch. On an MTD mower, like yours, there are blade brakes assemblies on either side of the mower where your feet rest. They stop the blade rotation when they make contact with the top of the deck pulley assembly. Part # 761-0168B Is the part # , you are looking for, you will need two of them.
Good Day.

Can be jumped and started and will mow, but when it is shut off, there isn't any battery to restart. What would be draining the battery or not allowing it to recharge????
