SOURCE: how do you tighten the control cable on a Troy Bilt mower?

Usually near the end of the cable there is a squeeze clamp on the side of the cable. Losen the mounting screw (DO NOT remove it) and slide the cable in the direction that will expose more cable. Tighten the mounting screw and test the control. It is really pretty simple.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230


It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

Troy bilt self propelled problem


My only guess is you've put the cable actuator in upside down. Sorry, that's the only thing that makes any sense.

I need to replace the transmission drive belt and need instructions


There's actually a Troy-Bilt Pony riding lawn mower as well.  If yours is like ours, a model 13AN77TG766 [URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf], it doesn't actually have gears but rather a variable-speed pulley.  The lever on the dashboard actually controls how high the brake pedal will go, while the brake pedal controls the position of the variable-speed pulley, which controls the effective gearing ratio.  That's how it can go at any speed with the engine still going at the same rate and without having to disengage a clutch.

So perhaps your mower is engaging the parking brake too early (page 17 of our manual).  The other thing I can think of is grass in the variable-speed pulley.  To check that, remove the spark plug and the battery (7/16-inch socket).  Then move the shift lever through its full range and check the shaft of the variable-speed pulley (part 63 on page 34) for debris, both above and below the loose plate thingy.  (You should be able to turn it quite easily if you put the forward/reverse lever in neutral.)

Hope that helps!
