Need the long model numbers. left and right transmissions are separate, and should have a common belt to drive them, so problem would seem to be in the lft transmission.. Does this one have a filter? Could filter be loose and sucking air?

little damp on top of transmission

# ***** and # ***** are the only places that you can try to add oil to the transmission. 15W50 engine oil. I would try to add a cup of oil, to see if it will help.

I FOUND IT. SO TIGHT IT DO TURN COUNTERCLOCKWISE RIGHT. AND WHAT WRONG WHEN ENGINE STOPS WHEN YOU TURN KEY A LOOSE
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 4 months ago.

Plug is standard right hand thread, so you turn it CCW to remove. Engine stops when you release the key? Can be the fuel solenid in the carburetor losing voltage.
