Question about John Deere Garden

Open Question

I have a sabre 18 HP V twin graden tractor I bought this at a auction as a spare tractor to keep at my hunting camp. It is leaking some kind of oil and it coats the drive pully to the point that the belt burns up cause it wont grab or it comes off. I checkedthe oil before I started it this year this was a week ago. When I pushed down on the reverse pedal it wont move same in forward I checked the linkages and its hooked up and seems to move is there a pump that controls that if so where is it model number m01842h010784

SOURCE: John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move

Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: need instructions for changing a drive belt on a John Deere LT155

I have googled LT155 and came upon john deere LT155 lawn tractor(noncurrent). It took me to John Deere's site. I put in your model number and it had several catagories. I would try the alphabetical list, go to B and look for traction belt.
Good day.

SOURCE: Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

Mts 5500 tractor


I have a Sears MTS 5500 tractor, 24 hp, 48" mower, bought new 2008 but used very little; only 127 hours on it. Soon after starting, tractor emits a heavy white smoke. Tried changing the oil, no help. The engine is B & S Extended Live Series, twin cylinders, total displacement .725 liters. Any ideas of what is causing this?

Hi, I have a Craftsman Garden Tractor 18HP Twin, model mo. 917.255919 that has a transaxle leak. The transaxle takes about 5 quarts of SAE 30 Motor Oil. I took the transaxle apart last summer to fix a gear...


I would drain transaxel out and refill with 80w90 gear oil. I think the 30 w is way to thin. You can try some lucas trasmisson sealer and conditioner and see if that helps.
If you have to remove the transaxel I would use hi-temp silicon sealer to seal all seams and arou
nd axel shafts. I have a six year old craftsman garden tractor 18 h.p. twin mod.number 917.2722751 and I'm nearly sure it uses the same transaxel so if you do have to get into the transaxel the oil seal part number is 788088A.I can not find the suggested quanity of oil but I just fill to top thru oil fill plug on top front of transaxel.Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have an onan 18 hp twin cylinder (early 90's vintage) that replaced the koehler in my JD 318 tractor, it seems to surge at anything but maximum power i.e. revs up and down all by itself even though...


Hunting & surging usually is the carb. main fuel jet is dirty, restricted fuel passage, or the governor. Try running some Seafoam carb cleaner through the gas tank first and see if it helps, and don't use ethanol-blended fuel. It absorbs moisture.

Will not go into gear


a hydro uses a foot pedal on the right side , you push forward to go forward or rock the pedal rearward to go in reverse - a regular transmission has a shifter usually between your legs for reverse 1st 2nd or 3rd gear - you also said the blades wont engage . are they electric ( with a switch ) or do you manually move a lever .
