Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
My 15 year old Craftsman model 917.252590 with auto transmission moves extremely slow when advancing the speed lever forward. The tractors forward movement will stall out & stop unless the speed control lever is pulled back to neutral & them moved slightly forward. The drive belt was replaced about 18 months ago & is good condition. The Kohler engine is fine, the tractor just will not pull.
Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.
