    Troy Bilt TB30R Transmission drive belt replacement?

    I just over think things when I don’t know the ability of the poster. Many times the extra body is needed by those with limited ability or just extra eyes if a problem comes along. It’s also nice to have someone to celebrate with when everything goes right.

    Troy Bilt TB30R Transmission drive belt replacement?

    You don’t have to remove the nut I think you are talking about needing a torque wrench for. When you loosen the two bolts I mentioned, it will allow the variable speed assembly the tilt to get the belt off.

    Troy Bilt TB30R Transmission drive belt replacement?

    Hardest part of this job will be to get the lower belt off. Clearance between the pulley and frame is to tight to slide belt past. I normally loosen not remove the two bolts (#6 in diagram) to get extra clearance. You will need to remove the deck and an extra pair of hand will help. I also...

    Real pain in the Butt

    If you use non-ethanol fuel don’t put it directly into your can. Put a gallon or two into your car first, then fill the can. If you go directly into the can you may get a half gallon of ethanol fuel, as you don’t know what the person before you used. Your car wont know the difference and you...

    I would check the brake switch. if the brake switch is engaged the engine will start and run regardless of anyone on the seat. Unit thinks the parking brake is on.

    Engine quits after about a minute

    Another thing to check. When it stops don’t shut the key switch off. Get off unit, hand on fuel solenoid, now turn the key switch off. Do you feel solenoid closing? I’m wondering if you are losing power to this solenoid, stoping fuel from entering the airhorn. Starting to think you may have...

    This one has me stumped

    How about posting the engine numbers and the part number for diaphragm and gasket. I’ve got an idea for a solution, but until I know your engine I’m not going to muddy the waters.

    Engine Backfires

    Backfiring through the muffler or carb? Makes a difference as to how to proceed. I’m thinking valves not closing properly or carb running rich. When you post back include the model and spec numbers, I’m think either an HH80 or HM80 engine. Waiting to hear back.

    Do I need a new coil? Does brand matter?

    U-tube, I have no ideas, as I very, very, seldom go there. Average person rebuild, if you’ve worked on carbs 1 1/2 hrs, if you’ve never worked on carb I suggest don’t even try. This will not be cheap, kit $90.00, labor minimum of 1 hour after the carb is off. Cost of carb approximately...
