Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float

1 Answer

I just changed the rear tires and now, coincidently, I have no drive from the engine to the tractor. It looks as if the clutch is not engaging. Also, the foot brake has just slopped around for some time and doesn't really work. But the clutch problem is brand new.

I am assuming that you are working on a lawn tractor.If so then one of you rear wheels is now missing the wood-ruff key(square key-stock that goes between the wheel and the axle),and now the easiest wheel to turn is the one with no load so your axle on that side is just spinning inside the wheel.The brake rod needs to come off and the end turned in a couple of turns to fix your other problem.

The clutch works on centrifugal force, so when the engine ticks over the drive is not engaged. As the engine speeds up the drive engages.

I have a craftsman lt 1000 riding lawn mower and it runs, but it won't go into gear it goes into gear, but clutch won' engage the gear.


Look under the mower to see if the drive belt has come off or broke. It is the belt that runs from the bottom of the engine to the rear axle.

I have a Craftsman mower 917.280810.It barely moves when clutch is released,even on flat ground.I changed the belt-no help.The transaxle pulley is engaged,and when I put my hand on the tire,the tire stops...


I don't quite get you, if the belt is running but the rear axle is not turning then your transmission is shot. If the belt is running and the rear axle is spinning with no forward or backward motion, then someone took the back wheels off and put them back on without installing the keyways.

Early Ford Farm Tracker- Clutch not engaging


Is it a 8N ford tractor or close to that?
Does the transmission grind or hard to put in gear if the clutch is left engaged while placing in a gear.......does it feel like the clutch is driving the transmission?
If so....there is a short drive shaft behind the transmission in the tractor which may have broken.
There's not much else that breaks in there.

Concerning Husqvarna LR120 lawn tractor. Gears will not engae.


Recheck your installation. It sounds like you perhaps got the belt on the wrong side of one or more belt guides. If you need an owners manual, post your full model and serial number and I will see if I can locate one for you

Tractor wont drive or engage electric clutch.


It thinks you aren't sitting on the seat.
There are 2 wires and a switch under the seat. The plug may have come off, the connections might be bad, or the switch might be bad.

Clutch issues: release clutch and mower doesnt move.


"....I just took off the right rear tire to replace."

Make sure the key hasnt fallen out of the right rear tire. It has to have the key to work. Its a peice of metal about 3 inches long and flat on all sides. It should slip into the grove on the tires shaft. Hope that helps.
