Put new belt on ground drive, but gear shifter only goes to 2nd gear as it is pushing against the new belt. Should the gear shifter be against the belt? Does the clutch tension pulley need to be adjusted? It is a weedeater 42 inch 13hp model hdt1338a.

Loosen the two planetary nuts, should be a thin nut and an acorn nut. With these loose make sure the large nut on top of the transmission is tight. Push the planetary all the way up on the shaft and turn the thin nut up until snug. Back the thin nut off 1/4 turn. Hold the thin nut in position and lock the acorn nut against it. The planetary must have a very small amount of up and down play.

Buy yourself a new serpentine belt - its slipping on the alternator and the battery isn't getting enough charge.

If yours is an automatic the damage to the shifter may be preventing the car from starting - If the car thinks that it is in any gear other than P, it may not start.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

Goes in 1st and Reverse but not 2nd


Something you may want to check is to see if there is a "governor" for the 2nd gear. My 4 year old has a 4x4 similiar to this and the only two gears that worked were 1st & reverse until my husband had to unscrew a piece from the 2nd gear setting..check the manual or if you don't have one, look online through the manufacturers website. I hope this helps!

My dryer needs a new belt. I opened the front panel and removed the broken belt but I am not sure how to put on the new one. I know it goes around the drum but does it go in the middle or near the back...


Cheryl the belt goes in line with the pulleys. 1st Put the belt around the drum. 2nd put the belt around the pulley on the motor. 3rd pull down on the idler pulley and set it so that is pushes on the back side of the belt. Remember the ribs on the belt go against the drum. When done the pulley will take up the tension on the belt. Hope this helps.
