Craftsman GT 18 won't move

garylee123March 18, 2014

Everything runs. Was mowing when it stopped. It felt like the brake came on. Goes into gear but won't move when brake let off. In neutral with engine running can not be pushed.
model 917.255913 older than dirt but runs like a bat out of hell....well. Normally.

IF you don't have an Owners manual, the link below has a near identical tractor.
Identical transmission and electrical schematic.
Engine TYPE# is slightly different, but not sure what the difference is there.

Can't help otherwise-

Here is a link that might be useful: Link

Thanks. Have the manual but nothing about this. Took seat, fenders and other things off to get to transaxle and brake to make sure nothing stuck in brake. Nothing. Going back to play some more. Thanks again.

Found it......Belt had half jumped a side pulley. Just enough to keep belt moving but not enough tension to move tractor. Leave it to me for something weird.

I'd rather have weird but inexpensive!
