How to: Make A Riding Lawn Mower FAST!
Here's a video covering the pulley swaps, and custom tensioner pulleys I've
built and installed on our off road and mudding tractors. Pulley swaps make
you lawn mower faster. You want to
increase the size of the front, and/or make the back pulley smaller to
increase the speed of your lawn mower or tractor.

Craftsman crawler has stock size pulleys
Murray has 4" in the front, and 5" in the rear
Craftsman Deck removal How to
A how to video is for Craftsman's made after 2000. The removal of decks on
older machines is very similar. This is also needed to be done before the
install of a snow blower.
Small Engine Repair: Adjusting the Hydrostatic Transmission Control Arm on a Craftsman Tractor
**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or
maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the
This Craftsman GT5000 Garden Tractor has a hydrostatic transmission with
hand control. When the transmission is moved forward, and than put back
into neutral it continues to creep forward. Fixing the problem involves
adjusting the control arm by loosening a adjusting bolt which is located
underneath the right fender and connected to the control arm. To get access
to the adjustment bolt, remove the right rear tire. I was able to jack up
the rear of the tractor and start it, so I could test the tractor while the
rear of the tractor was off the ground. The adjustment requires very small
movements until the right position is found. You will know when it is
adjusted correctly when the tractor rear wheels do not turn with the
transmission is put in neutral from forward and reverse position.
Replacing a 6-speed transaxle with a Hydrostatic in a Craftsman tractor
I like everything about that Craftsman LT4000 twin, except it's 6-speed
manual-shift Peerless transaxle, so I decided to swap it with a Hydro-Gear
hydrostatic trans I had on a Craftsman LT1000. It went pretty well except
for one little oversight. (I talk about that at the end.) This tractor was
built by a company then called AYP, formerly called Roper. Now called
Husqvarna. This swap will work on many brands. Poulan, Rally, Weed Eater
and lots of other store brands.

How to Adjust and Level the Deck Height of a Riding Lawn Mower Video from Sears PartsDirect
If the blades on your tractor are in good condition or have been replaced,
deck leveling may be necessary in order to achieve a good quality of cut.
Complete the following step-by-step instructions from Sears PartsDirect to
adjust and level the deck height of your riding lawn mower. For more riding
lawn mower repair guides and support, go to:
(1:01) Step 1: Depress foot pedal fully and raise and hold the parking
(1:08) Step 2: Once the knob is locked, now you may release the foot pedal.
(1:14) Step 3: Place the mower engagement lever to the disengaged position.
(1:18) Step 4: Turn the ignition to the off or stop position. Remove the
ignition key and place it somewhere where it cannot be put back into the
ignition switch during this procedure.
(1:29) Step 5: Make sure the blades and all moving parts have completely
(1:33) Step 6: Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and place
the wire where it cannot come into contact with the spark plug in the
engine after completing the safety procedures.
(1:40) Step 7: After completing the safety procedures, prepare the tractor
for the mower deck adjustments. First make sure that the tractor is on a
level, paved, smooth surface.
(1:52) Step 8: Raise the attachment lift lever to the highest position.
(1:58) Step 9: Adjust tire pressure to the maximum pressure on each tire.
(2:12) Step 10: On both sides of the tractor, position the blades at the
side as shown so that the measurement can be made from the edge of the
blade to the pavement.
(2:25) Step 11: Subtract the two measurements to get the difference between
the left and the right sides.
(2:41) Step 12: Make the adjustment at the left side of the tractor in
front of the rear wheel on the lift link lock nut. Turn the adjusting lock
nut clockwise to raise the mower and counterclockwise to lower it.
(3:06) Step 13: Measure the blade tip at both sides again and adjust until
the difference between the blade tip heights are about 1/8”.
(3:23) Step 14: Rotate the blades so that the direction of the blades are
forward and backward.
(3:39) Step 15: Using the bottom edge of the blade closest to the deck as a
reference, measure the distance from the ground to the blade at the front
and rear blade tips.
(4:19) Step 16: To make the adjustment, use the wrench to loosen the jam
nut several turns.
(4:28) Step 17: Turn the adjustment nut counter clockwise to loosen or drop
the front of the mower or clockwise to tighten or raise the front of the
(4:37) Step 18: Measure the front and rear blade tips to make sure the
difference is within the acceptable range. Tighten the jam nut against the
adjustment nut without changing the position at the adjustment nut. Check
that all pulley guards and deflectors are in good condition and properly
secured in place on the tractor or the mower deck.
(5:00) Step 19: Replace the spark plug wire on the spark plug. Replace the
ignition key in the ignition switch so you can test the mower.
