Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
I can help you with this problem. Does your mower have a lever that you use to engage your blades, or do you have a pto switch that you pull up to engage your blades?
If the pulley under your engine is not turning, this could indicate that the key stock in your pulley is worn, allowing your crankshaft to spin inside your pulley, rather than turn your pulley. You and I can continue from here. Thanks again!
Thank you for this information. Does your deck belt tighten at all after you move your engagement lever? I pulled up a diagram of your mower.
Let's try something. Your engagement cable is attached to an idler arm that has an idler pulley. Your idler arm is suppose to move backwards to tighten your belt, as you move your engagement lever forward.
Move your engagement lever forward, then reach down with your hand to see if you can push your idler arm back farther to tighten your belt more. If so, then our problem may be cause by your lever being distorted. If not, then I suspect worn pulleys.
We can continue from here.
You are very welcome!
Thanks for the update.
