Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Will mower roll in freewheel? Is the top pulley turning on top of the transmission when the engine is running, viewed from under the fender? Is the belt tight with engine off?
# ***** are the two bolts holding the mechanical disc brake. I think your brake is locked. That is why it will not roll in freewheel... Loosen the two bolts, # ***** , and with caliper loose ,tap on the brake parts to free it up. Oil the brake with WD40 and re-tighten the bolts, mower should now roll. With new belt I think it will work!
