Troy Bilt Horse slips out of forward
I have an old Troy Bilt Horse with the 7 HP Kohler engine. I just put a new set of belts ($44 ouch!) on it and it still doesn't want to stay in forward motion unless I hold down the lever. I tried putting a stiffer spring on the mechanism and even replaced the worn out rivets in the assembly. The block is adjusted all the way down for the little wheel to lock into but it just works it's way up after a few feet. What am I missing here to fix this thing?
It seems like the block detent isn't deep enough or maybe the angle of the detent needs to be ground a little steeper.
What do you all think?
