While mowing it started 'jerking' going forward (John Deere RX75)

While mowing it started 'jerking' and continues to do so. Does not **** while moving in reverse. Shortly before I had tightened the brake a little, but made sure I could still push it fairly easily. It acts as if the belt slips repeatedly OR maybe a gear tooth broke in the transaxle? Previous history: last summer the local authorized dealer replaced the gears assy in the transaxle because the shifter pin broke twice. Been working well since. I'm hoping I just need to adjust a belt or a guide or something like that. Looked in the operator and service manuals, but no t/s for this prob desc.

If this is a MTD rider, (troybilt, yard man, yardmachine,. bolens, cub, etc) the transmission is likely a single gear forward and reverse with a variable speed pulley mechanism with two transmission belts, these trans are prone to failures of the gear clutch which is a dog style clutch with some small teeth that engage the gear plates, these teeth can wear off on one side resulting in the popping or chattering while retaining full functionality for the other direction, this is the gear set inside the transaxle and is usually an indicator of significant wear inside the axle housing itself, usually entire transaxle replacement is the most common and effective repair solution.

If it is the belt driven version you should have a deck belt and a drive belt. The drive belt is under the engine. If you have the hydraulic version check for a broken linkage at the pump.

Lost the bolt/nut to my riding lawn mower!

That is a cap screw you are talking about. The size of it is 7/16" X 1-3/4". The John Deere part # is 19H2563, but I am sure you can just get one at the local hardware store. I could not find out for sure, but on most blades they use a fine-thread bolt/screw. If you can tell the difference, check before you buy, or just buy both and see which one threads in easily. Hope all this helps.
