Ariens 42" 22 hp briggs and stratton right foot control adjustment

The forward reverse foot control has lost tension ,can this adjusted? Symptoms: when pressing control to move foward, accelerates quickly but speed greatly reduced. When letting up on control to brake, continues to move forward. Control does not return to neutral position. Clutch operation is fine.

SOURCE: craftsman 42 in 19.5 unable to control speed forward motion

is this perhaps a hydro trans? if so, try putting the shift lever in neutral, then let off the brake pedal, use the shift lever to go forward and to neutral to stop - same with reverse, don't even use the brake pedal except for emergency stops. if it's a manual shift, it's possible the belt is incorrect, and/or the belt guides are bent or the belt is improperly routed - the belt guides are important as they allow the belt to "blossom" off the engine pulley, reducing the "shock" load when engaged - hope this helps

SOURCE: when i put mower in

yes

there is a adjustment under the r/h rear gaurd just under where the lever goes to hydro unit you should see a slot and a adjustment bolt arrangement

make sure you put the tractor in true nuetral 1st then undo the bolt that clamps lever to shift arm / shaft ( this connects to plate that operates swash plate on the pump ) and move the lever either fwd or back until (without moving transmission from true nuetral ) it fits into the nuetral slot correctly and tighten the adjustment bolt - test and adjust as nescesary

My reverse sewing tension is to tight on my Bernina Activa 220 Sewing machine. Forward is fine. How can I loosen it without affecting the forward tension.


tension is set by the adjustment and is not affected by material direction
it is only the walking foot that changes direction and not the sewing action
discus this problem with a service center as there may be a service issue

Reverse seems faster than forward


Reverse gear is geared more for low end acceleration, but not speed...forward gear will not wind out so quick...this is normal.

Hands on g shock are showing incorrect time


that shouldnt be hard to fix. to fix that, press the forward button then hold it. it should take you to a H.SET setting with the word SUB flashing. use forward to move the small arrow. move the small speed arrow to 50, then press MODE. the arrow should be on 12:00. if its not, use the forward and reverse buttons to adjust it to 12:00. you can hold any one of them to speed up arrow process. when your arrows are on 12, press the adjust button and then arrows should display the correct time

2000 Ford F150 4.6 V8 4 x 2. Center support bearing went. Took truck to driveline shop, they pressed on a new center support & changed the 3 U Joints. 1 day later, truck only "rolled" from...


Stop driving it and check the trans. fluid level. When they pulled the shaft they lost fluid out the tail shaft and forgot to refill it. I hope the trans. is not damaged, good luck.

I think a motor mount is broken the engine seems to move when you accelerate.


The easiest way to check for broken engine mount is to put one foot on the brake and push the throttle to watch the engine move. the mounts are located on the bottom of the engine
about where the transmission and engine are bolted together. Make sure that you test in foward and reverse,because they might both be broken. `Engine oil leaks on the rubber mounts and softens the rubber on the mounts makes the go bad . Also hard acceleration is hard on the mounts

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
