On the end of the spring, is there a hook of some sort? If so, then the ball (on the end of the cable) will pull up into the spring and the hook of the spring will hook onto the transmission.

I have attached a photo of one type of drive system used on these mowers. If the spring does have a hook (or a type of Z) on the end of it, then it will hook into the transmission as shown in my photo. If yours does not look like this then there may be a lever on top of the transmission that the spring will connect to.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

Why is mower only running for 15 minutes and only works on right side?

A:

Lawn mowers sometimes seem to develop multiple problems and that can be frustrating. While you wait for the expert review, I did locate two similar questions that may provide some ideas. I attached the links below. I hope these offer some help.

A:

Based on your symptom there is likely a carburetor issue. The carburetor will likely need to be removed, inspected and repaired. You could try one simple procedure that may work. Underneath the carburetor bowl is a nut. The nut is used to hold the carburetor bowl in place as well as fuel metering device. Remove the nut and look to see if the little holes in the side of the upper portion are stopped up. Clean the small metering holes and then reinstall the carburetor nut and then see if will remain running. NOTE: Fuel will pour out from the opening once the fuel bowl is removed. Drain the gas tank before removing the nut. In regards to the dry system only working on one side, I suspect the problem is a dirty pinion assembly or sheared gear in the wheel. First, check the wheel. To do that, remove the wheel. It's secured to the axle with one nut. Once the nut is removed, slide the wheel off the axle. Then look at the teeth inside of the wheel. If they are worn off, the wheel has to be replaced. If the wheel looks okay, I recommend cleaning the pinion assembly. First, remove the clip securing the pinion. Then take the pinion apart and clean the parts with brake cleaner. After the parts are clean, use the image below to aid in reassembling the pinion. Once it is reassembled check the operation. If it still gives you problems, I recommend replacing the pinion assembly part number 403849. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct team. I hope this information helps.

Thank you for your question on the transmission on the walk behind motor.

Are you referring to the pulley onto the transmission or how to attach the drive cable to the transmission?

You should a coiled return spring that holds the transmission in the neutral position.

The cable should attach to the transmission arm with the end of the cable S hook into the arm.

Is the pulley not fitting onto the transmission shaft?

Is the transmission not driving the wheels?

Is the cable not pulling the transmission to tighten the belt?

Please give me a little more detail as to the problem you are having.
