Why would pushing the inside hydralic lever( the one closest to the hood, there are 3 levers) forward increase the ground speed significantly on my John Deere 430 lawn tractor?

Hello rfbarrett:

From your Description it Sounds like the Plate that is Attached to the Carburetor (that the Throttle cable Attaches to) Thru Shaft (holds and Moves the Throttle Valve) has Loosened and is Simply Turning on the Thru Shaft and Not Moving the Thru Shaft and Throttle Valve at All.

SOURCE: John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.

SOURCE: Replaced transmission on my John

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This is a generic response to all John Deere Variator linkages but most likely what you must do with a transmission change.

To adjust the "Variator linkage" do the following.
1. Pry off the buttons on the side that cover the access holes located just below the variable speed lever.
2. Put the variable speed lever in notch #5.
3. Loosen cap screw one or two turns. This is located inside the hole.
4. Disconnect and ground the spark plug.
5. Turn ignition key to crank engine until clutch-brake pedal raises as high as it will go.
6. Take up linkage slack by pushing down on cap screw (see step #2). Tighten cap screw.
NOTE: If the tractor won't move with the variator in the first notch after these adjustments then the primary drive belt needs to be replaced.

I am concerned that maybe you did not connect the linkage properly but you have to do the above steps if no matter what you do you only have slow speeds.

How do i set the cruise control on my 1994 mercedes c220 elegance automatic


Cruise Control
Any given speed above approximately 22 mph (35 km/h) can be maintained with the cruise control by operating the lever.
-see photo

  1. Accelerate and set: Lift lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever up to accelerate.
  2. Decelerate and set:
    Depress lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever down to decelerate.
    Normally the vehicle is accelerated to the desired speed with the accelerator. Speed is set by briefly pushing
    the lever to position 1 or 2. The accelerator can be released. The speed can be increased (e.g. for passing)
    by using the accelerator. As soon as the accelerator is released, the previously set speed will be resumed automatically. If a set speed is to be increased or decreased slightly, e.g. to adapt to the traffic flow, hold lever in position 1 or 2 until the desired speed is reached, or briefly tip the control lever in the appropriate direction for increases or decreases in 0.6 mph (1 km/h) increments. When the lever is released, the newly set speed remains.
  3. Canceling
To cancel the cruise control, briefly push lever to position 3.
When you step on the brake or the vehicle speed drops below approx. 22 rnph (35 km/h), for example when driving upgrade, the cruise control will be canceled.
4. Resume
If the lever is briefly pushed to position 4 when driving at a speed exceeding approx. 22 mph (35 km/h), the vehicle resumes the speed which was set prior to the cancellation of the cruise control. The last memorized speed is canceled when the key in the steering lock is turned to position 1 or 0.
Note:
If the engine does not brake the vehicle sufficiently while driving on a downgrade, the speed you set on the cruise control may be exceeded and you may have to step on the brake pedal to slow down.
As soon as the grade eases, the cruise controlled speed will again be maintained as long as the brakes were not previously applied, or the lever may be used to resume the previously set speed if the brakes were applied.

The hood lever is stuck inside the car. Tried pushing hood done etc. stuck in an outback town in NT. Need to change the dead battery!


Push hood back down hard,then pull on
hood release hard again.If not work,trace wire
inside as far as you can and get grips or pliers
and pul from as far up the line as you can.If it
opens as it should,you can easily unattache wire
from pull handle put a knot in wire,this will shorten it
so easier to undo next time.Infact you might try that first.
If none work which I doubt,get push to start and drive
to garage.LUCK

Hood won t close


Check out the cable connection between the latch and your internal latch control. Till you locate the problem I would suggest tying down the hood with some sort of strap so it does not pop open at speed.

    How do i bleed hydralic clutch on a 1992 honda goldwing 1500


    The principal reason behinde bleeding the clutch system is the same on any machine with a hydrallic system, keeping the resovoir full while pulling the lever pushes the fluid through the line to the slave cylinder, which is located on the engine-gearbox. If while bleeding the system you experiance difficulty, you could remove the slave cylinder, clamp the piston so it does not push from the cylinder while bleeding, then lift the cylinder higher than the resovoir and bleed it like. This, with a tube from the bleed nipple into a container, submerge the end of the pip,e in the fluid, then open the nipple and start pulling the lever in and out, this will push the air out allowing the fluid to follow, once all the air has been removed and only fluid is cuming out ofthe pipe, hold the lever at the in position and tighten the nipple before letting go of the lever, replace all parts

    I bought a used kodak 650 carousel slide projector and i can't get the slide tray to load. Is it because it came with a 140 slide tray instead of an 80 slide tray?


    The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
    Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse. If you are not seeing these levers move as described, then the chances of your projector needing a repair are likely. The good news: parts are still available. The bad news: You will have to find a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repairs for you.

    New battery. hooked up correctly. But, scooter will still barely go in reverse super slow. forward speed slow .can throttle cable be problem/ when I push inside of speed lever it moves faster. pushing ends...


    Hi. Did the machine used to operate properly in the past? Sometimes previous owners or technicians have changed the programme for owners for different uses. What you describe sounds like a faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
    Also check battery and motor connectors.
    Do you have another switch on the machine for controlling the speed, such as an indoor/outdoor switch? Good luck. Neil.

    Stuck in 4wd


    Apparently, their is an electrically controlled, vaccuum servo located below the spare donut tire under the hood which is malfunctioning. It is connected to a lever on the side of transmission, by a cable. A temporary fix is to get the lever to move forward by hand. Jack up the car on the passenger side. Between the two transmission cross members, above the exaust pipe behind the catylictic converter, you will see the lever connected to the cable. Push lever forward towards motor to disengage rear wheels. This will allow you to travel on a hard road until you can get to a mechanic.
