hello,
I have a older walker 16hp ghs mower. The mower is a back up and is not

used regularly, more of a side project. It has a new 16hp engine along with

new cutting deck gearboxes. The problem is when I engage the electric

clutch the mower loses power and moves very slow. after it warms up it runs

fine. There is asquealing when the clutch and foward lever are engaged. I

think it is either a bearing in the t gearbox or a belt slipping. any

suggestions? the blower is also new. thanks :cool2:

I would loosen all the belts and ckeck the blade spindles and idler pulleys there may be one trying to lock up on you,And also check your T-Box.

The T-box take 90W gear oil. Check all your belts. Use ONLY Walker belts or you will have problems. I do not have my books here at home but the belts for that model are Gates belts and you may still be able to read the Gates numbers. And by the way you should only engage and dis-engage the PTO at half throttle. Doing so at full throttle causes extra ware on belts and gear boxes. Also check your deck gear boxes and check the blades to made sure there is not a garden hose wrapped around them like the one that came in last week.

check your blower too see if it is plugged, or something jammed in it. This will cause sqealing big time when you engage it.
