Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
If you are having issues with forward and reverse, the problem is going to be in the drive system and not fuel system. I would check the drive belt forst off. Belts stretch and being as you stated it started on hill, I would say you need a new belt
I will include a diagram of the belt routing and it will also list part numbers next to them for you to see. Belt runs the full length of the machine.
Drive belt part number is###-##-####or 130969.
Belt is the first thing I would change out. I would also inspect pulleys and make sure none are worn, or broken. Make sure drive belt is properly routed as in the picture also.
It is easiest to remove the deck to install. Install in the rear first and then the front. Leave the middle routing for last as that is where the idlers are and belt can be moved easier here for installing.
Let me know if you need anything else as am here for you. Please remember to RATE me as I strive to be the BEST, ***** ***** ratings help me to achieve this.
Not a problem.
