Model number? Is the drive belt from engine to the transmission turning when engine is running?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
I suspect belt is broken or off a pulley.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Belt is not broken but isn't turning
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Model no is 28M707
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
That would be the enging number! If belt is not turning, it maybe off the engine drive pulley!

Do the gears grind?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No grinding just feels like it's going to move but doesn't
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Did it quit under use?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Did you have either rear wheel off?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It did and no I did not
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did replace the drive belt though
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
So if belt is turning the top pulley, could the pulley be slipping on the top shaft? If not, the transmission has internal problems.
