Troy Bilt LTX 1842 drive problem
Machine: Troy Bilt LTX 1842
THe lower drive belt on this mower was obviously shot, so I changed it. It is OEM quality bought from Lowes, the part number was verified, part number 754-0467. What a job!
When I finished getting everything put back together and fired the mower up--no go. It wouldn't move. The accelerator pedal feels tight and I'm unable to depress it more than a couple of inches. I could smell smell rubber burning, so I shut it off. I have double and triple checked the routing of the belt and unless I have gone completely batty, it is on the machine correctly. I went to a lot of trouble to get the belt threaded through (by) the keeper pins.
Could any of the good folks here offer a suggestion as to what to try next?
