Question and Answers

Q:

when I release the clutch/brake a grinding action begins. It does the same when the blades are engaged and disengaged so that does not make a difference.

A:

When you let the clutch out the idler bracket moves to tighten the belt to the transaxle pulley. The idler pulley start turning and so does the transaxle pulley.

I suspect you have a belt guide bent too close and touching the edge of one of the pulleys.

Turn the idler pulleys and the transaxle pulley by hand and listen and feel for something dragging. I think you will find the problem in this area.
