There are three probable causes for this I would try them in this order.

First disconnect the battery (negative cable) and try to turn the motor by hand, see if it spins relatively freely (there will be some resistance part way around the circle). If you cant get it past a certain spot then there is something jammed.

If it spins freely then next I would check the battery. If you have a multimeter then you can test the voltage of the battery. It should be above 9 or 10 volts, if not then you need to charge it. You can either pick up a battery charger or take it to your local auto parts store and ask them to run a battery test on it. The batter test will both confirm the battery is still good and give it a full charge.

If this doesn't fix the problem the last thing to do is replace the starter motor. It is a small metal cylinder with a gear on one end and should be on the side of the engine. It should just come off with a couple bolts, take it to the parts store or a local lawn and tractor supply and they should be able to sell you a replacement (you might want to call around first to save some driving).

Lawn tractor starts but will not drive. Husqvarna model GT2254

How did the tractor stop driving? It is a geared transmission. First check drive belt and idler pulleys under the tractor. If all the belts are attached and in place, the transmission probably has internal issues.

Mower wont move forward or backwards and makes a ticking noise when pushed.

Just a thought , maybe the key that locks the pulley to the input shaft on top of the transmission has sheared and the pulley is just spinning on the shaft or the key on the axle shaft that locks the wheel to the axle and that would allow the brakes not to work.

Put your meter on the battery and see what voltage it's putting out while running and post the voltage for me. Then I can answer your question.

Remove c/v shaft after you get the axle nut off pry drive shaft out of trans axle . ( I assume this is where the leak is) use a small part bar to pry out old seal. Tap into the transaxle the new seal with a small hammer . go slow be careful not to bend the seal. Lube inner lip of seal with vasaline or grease reinstall CV shaft . check fluid level in transaxle . use a repair Manuel to locate the place you have to fill the transaxle and fluid type

Why won't my mower move forward?

Looks like this is a HydroGear transaxle. If this has happened over time, the axle may be bad. If it was sudden, I suggest checking the belt. If you have recently changed a tire, make sure the drive key was installed on the axle shaft.

Need new clutchplate & pressure plate for manua

  1. Remove the Old Clutch
    • 1Verify that your vehicle's clutch is the source of your problems and not the pedal-arm bushings, activating cables or the slave-master cylinder.
    • 2Unhook the positive battery cable, the clutch cable or hydraulic slave cylinder to get the transaxle ready for easy removal. Eliminate anything that may hinder your efforts, including exhaust pipes and the speedometer.
    • 3
    • Secure your car in a safe position before jacking up the front end.
    • 4Stabilize the engine with a jack below the oil pan. Remove the transaxle by undoing at least one engine mount.
    • 5Separate the engine from the transaxle by removing the bolts that surround the flywheel bell housing.
    • 6Push the transaxle away from the engine until the input shift clears the pressure plate.
    • 7Disengage the bolts surrounding the pressure plate and take it and the clutch disc out. Check to see if the flywheel's friction surface is scored, checked or has hot spots. Remove, machine and reinstall the flywheel, if needed.
    • 8Examine the pilot bearing (bushing) located at the flywheel's center to be sure the needle bearings are lubricated and that there's no galling. Also look for any oil leaking around the rear main engine seal.
    Replace the Clutch
    • 9Follow the instructions for replacing your car's clutch carefully to avoid having to remove the transaxle.
    • 10Check that the transaxle's input shaft isn't leaking; replace if needed.
    • 11Take out the flywheel and the old seal and install a new seal.
    Install a New Clutch
    • 12Clean the crankshaft flange before putting in the flywheel. With the flywheel on top of the flange, secure the bolts in a star formation to the specified torque for your vehicle.
    • 13Install the clutch disc and pressure plate. Prior to putting in the transaxle, attach the new release bearing to the release fork. The fork should move freely.
    • 14Hoist the transaxle into position and move it forward until the input shaft glides into the clutch disc's spindled hole. Do not apply force.
    • 15Reinstall any bolts or mounts that were removed to replace your car's clutch. Grab the transaxle, release the jack and lower your vehicle.
    • 16Consider replacing your car's clutch cable. If you don't replace the cable at least adjust it for the right amount of free-play.
    • 17Confirm that your clutch's self-adjusting action is performing correctly by depressing the slave cylinder's piston into its bore.
    • 18Drive your car to be sure your clutch is working properly.

I am trying to replace the clutch in a 1996 cavalier, I have both axles off, the transaxle bolts out, the motor mount off, the pressure off the motor, I have about a 1 inch gap in the transaxle housing ,...

Remove the speedometer cable and any wiring that is attached to the transaxle.

Reattach the clutch cable and use the pedal to leverage against the clutch pressure plate, which will move the transaxle away from the engine a few inches. From there, you should be able to remove it by hand.

Don't allow the transaxle's input shaft to hang on the new clutch, it will bend it and cause serious problems.

Hi Gene,

The way that we install the box's is to remove the spyder housing....You can lever it out with a large screw driver....Another thing to check...the clutch plate....Have you fitted it onto the input shaft (spigot shaft) and tried it for size, to make sure you've been supplied with the correct replacement? Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, but it can happen!....After you've fitted the box, refit the spyder housing, using a plank of wood and a good clout....It fits and locks in with a spring clip....

Hope that this is a help to you....

Best regards Johngee10
