Disconnect the spark plug wire from the plug, and secure it away from the spark plug. you will need some help next. if you can elevate the mower to get access to the blade, try to manually rotate the engine. If it will not move, then your engine has seized up.

    I'm sorry, I posted to the wrong place.

    This mower has a belt driven mower deck.

    Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug.

    Disconnect the mower deck drive belt from the engine pulley.

    then try to turn the engine manually. If it does not turn either direction, then it sounds like the engine is seized.



    For engine pricing I would check with Toro.



    I'm not finding anything with that model # of the riding mower.

    can you double check that info please?


  • Daniel Morgan May 27, 2011

    I am presuming that you have double checked all of your electrical connections.
    Ok, finally found the unit on the Toro site.


    The engine is this manufacturer and part number. ENGINE-KOHLER, PS-SV830-0016 You will need to check with a local Toro dealer for engine pricing.

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

It sounds to me that you have something in your gas tank that is intermittently plugging your gas feed hole. Inspect in your tank for something floating around in there and pull it out.

My mower will die everytime i engage the blades to mow


Check to see if one of your deck spindles isn't seized. Disengage the blades and turn each blade to see if its free. Sounds like either a spindle is seized or your electric clutch on the motor has a problem.

Push mower is sluggish


Sounds like bad gasoline. Try some fuel stabilizer added to the fuel tank. You might want to dump the old gas out first. You can find the fuel stabilizer at any auto parts store.

My helper was mowing with my Honda push mower.. The handle started shaking.. a lot.. It will start up at first pull but is not cutting well. The blade is turning but the mower is vibrating so much it...


it sounds like the blade may have hit some thing hard .
You say the blade is turning is it turning level or is it sort of swaying as you may have ofset the drive pin.
Worst case.. new mower as it can cost a lot of money to repair drive
I know as i have done the same thing a few years ago
