Q:

My Sears Craftsman lawn tractor, model 917.272.084, wont move. I changed the motion belt, the brake disc is not stuck to the brake puck.

A:

You might have one of several problems. Thanks for the information of what you have done. The more information we have the better answers we can give you.

Check the linkage from the motion drive lever to the transaxle. Get someone to shift the lever while you watch the linkage on the transaxle and be sure it is moving. Remove the bolt in the link that attaches to the transaxle and move the shaft with an adjustable wrench as far as it will move easily both directions.

The bypass lever might not be closing the bypass valve. Sometimes the valve inside the transaxle will get rust on it. Spray the area on the transaxle where the bypass lever attaches to the transaxle. Use a good rust buster and spray it liberally. Pull the bypass lever out and release it, let the spring snap it closed as fast as it will. Do this 10-12 times and see if it makes a difference.

Purge the transaxle to remove any air inside it. To do this, put the parking brake on and with the clutch in start the tractor. Set the throttle to half speed and shift the motion drive lever all the way forward slowly. Leave it for 5 seconds, then slowly move the the lever to neutral for 5 seconds. Slowly move the lever to reverse for 5 seconds. Go through this procedure 5 times and it will remove any air inside the transaxle.
