Thank you for your question. I am glad you added the images and more details. If the unit was not driving, the problem could have been low on oil or the filter was plugged. I recommend putting the unit back together and refill it with 5W-50 synthetic motor oil. The image below shows how to check the oil level. Then purge the unit and check the operation. If it still does not work, I recommend clicking here to be taken to the manufacturer website. Then follow the trouble-shooting chart. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

ok Mark still having trouble put it back together filled it with 5 w 50 then worked it to get the air out just the way I was told to and just can't get the power it should have trying to blow snow with it and only have around 10% to 20% of the power it used to have and for some reason reverse is even less I ve checked all the linkages and leavers and the belt drive it all seems ok oil level is where it should be pretty much ready to give up it has to be something with the pump maybe the thrust washers don't know how to tell what is bad and what is good if I take the pump apart I can get any parts I need at tuff torq web site just need to know what to order.

Murray, I am sorry you are still having problems. First, have a helper sit on the tractor and push down on the forward pedal while you watch the shift lever on the transaxle. If it is moving as much as the pedal the linkage should be fine. Next, start the tractor and push the forward pedal down. If it does not have the power as it used too, hook your foot under the brake pedal and pull it back. If the power comes back when you do this the problem is in the clutch. Either the clutch is binding or the return spring is missing. To check the spring you need to look under the tractor for the idler arm. The arm should have a spring connected to it that goes to the frame. If the spring is intact look for debris build up causing the clutch to bind. If all of those check out ok, the problem is likely in the transaxle. Do to the fact that we do not have a cream environment to take transaxles apart we do not repair them. Based on the symptoms you are having the problem could be the pump or the motor. I wish I could tell you how to tell which is causing the problem. You might be able to seek advice directly from the Tuf Torq site I posted above. Please let me know what you find. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I looked up the model number you submitted. I do not see a bottom cover on the transaxle in this tractor. If you could please reply below with and picture of the bottom cover and more details I will be happy to assist you.  I will try to give you all information needed to fix the tractor. The first question is have you removed the rear wheels. The rear wheels have a square axle key that drive them. I have provided you with an image below showing the placement of the axle key.   If the axle key is in position, the next check to make is if the drive belt is still on. With the tractor on a level surfaced and the engine off look under the tractor at the drive belt. The belt should be free of slack and go around all of the pulleys. If the belt is fine put the tractor in neutral and try to push it. If you can push the mower, you know the brake is not the problem. If you can not push the tractor the problem is likely a stuck brake. You will need to mover the break lever on the transaxle to see if it is sticking. If it is stuck you should be able to free it up by spraying a little WD-40 on the brake lever. Then work it back and forth.  If your tractor has a hydrostatic transaxle, I recommend you try to purge the air out of the system. The purging instructions can be found in your owner's manual and I have posed them below.  Next check the brake lever on the transaxle. If it has been sitting for a long period of time it might be stuck on. The lever is located on the right side of the tractor inside of the frame. I recommend working the lever back and forth to make sure it is moving freely.  When you are looking under the tractor, have someone move the shifter. When the shifter is moved, you should see the shifter on the transaxle move. If the shifter is properly attached, have someone start the tractor and let out on the brake. Now carefully look under the tractor at the Trans axle drive pulley. The drive pulley should be spinning.  If the pulley is spinning, the problem is most likely a defective transaxle.  I hope this helps get the tractor going. If you need further assistance, please reply with the details of what you have found and a model number.   I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Mark
