Troy Bilt 34073 mower - stripped spindle-shaft?

Tried changing blades, but one came loose when engaged and the blades crashed into each other. Now, replacing the damaged blades, one won't tighten.It feels like it's getting tighter, then it releases. Stripped?

Bet on it- you might try adding an additional nut of the right size/thread or several washers to utilize the remaining healthy threads.

I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting


There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

I have a troy bilt 17.5 hp pony riding manual lawnmower and my belt located above the deck keep jumping off track after engaging the blades a couple of times,do i need to tighte my belt,if so how?


Those units are self adjusting. No way to adjust it. It sounds like you have a bad idler pulley or a bad spindle bearings, which would cause the pulleys to be out of alignment.

When I engage the mower blades,It makes a loud noise under the mower deck and the right side cut lower than the left side leaving a pattern in my yard.Please help grass is getting tall


It sounds a lot like the balancer is loose. You can most likely fix this yourself, here's how: pull the spark plug wire off the plug, tilt the lawnmower up to expose the blade, rock the blade to see if it is loose on the shaft, if it is all you have to do is tighten the bolt so the blade and the balancer are flush to the shaft. That should fix your noise and uneven cut problem. If that doesn't fix it, let me know here, ok? Cheers!
