I tore a part my first walker and put back together. This is a 93 with 20HP Kohler. Everything is back together and running fine other than when I pull the lever up to engage blades it does nothing I have to push down on the lever the it works:confused:I've searched the net too no luck so wondering if anyone here can steer me to what I'm missing

Here's a MT linkage pic, You didn't post a model.....

Make sure you didn't reverse a rod or pivot arm, It sounds to me you don't have the engagement idler pulley running on the inside of the belt.....

It's a GHS. I can't seem to make any sense of the diagram where I'm out. I'll snap a pic or two and see if I can figure out how to post them :dizzy: I should have made a few more mental notes but figured I could go off my other units but there different yet again

GHS stands for "Grass Handling System" which is the style deck not the unit model that I know of, Look at the model tag on the unit frame....

I'm not familiar with the older models, so I could be wrong. However, if you're PTO shaft is not turning, its the shear pin located right between your legs where the pto connects to the deck pto

No its turning. It's just when I pull up on the lever it does not engage. I have to push down to engage it. It's working backwards:hammerhead:

Thanks for the replies guys but I got it figured out. Realized I didn't have the belt over the tension pulley:hammerhead: too much fixing and other things going on at once and I missed something simple and got frustrated its nice to take a step back once in a while and then go back to it
