Q:

Husqvarna Mower... I replaced the pinion gear assemblies

A:

After replacing a part on a mower I know how important it is to add the right type of lubricant to make sure the mower runs smoothly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did manage to find a link that will provide you with some good information to help you with your question. I hope my link is useful.

You can use multi-purpose lithium grease for the pinion assemblies.

If you've had to replace the pinion assembly several times you may want to consider having a technician check it out. There's not a lot to it and replacing them is rather cut/dry so I can't see anything that would cause major concern other than it having been replaced and still with the problem.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks for your response. I did end up using lithium grease after trying all options. The pinions constantly try to engage so you cannot easily back up. I replaced everything in the entire drive train and still had the same problem. Even when the drive belt is loose it still tries moving forward which engages the pauls in the pinions. It seemed there needs to be more friction to keep the pulley/belt from moving so I am experimenting with a piece of rubber vacuum hose over the belt guides on the gearbox pulley. When the belt is loose it tends to rub on the hose and minimizes any motion. It seems to better but not perfect. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

That's awesome that you're trying to come up with a solution to this. I'm (my team) working on trying to get one these mowers up here so we can tinker around with it and see what we come up with.
