    Default Arien Tractor .. will not move ..?

    Hello,
    I collect Ariens .. I have five .. yes I am a bit daft ..
    I am slowly restoring them .. most have Kohler engines .. so that is no problem ..
    The problem is the wheel drive .. I have no drive at all on my GT16, even though the oil pump is working ..
    I have drive, but it is not constant on my GT18 .. I have to push the gear lever in and out of gear to make it move ..
    Hopefully there is some-one reading this who can help ..
    Thanks
    Rgds

    Flip up the Seat pan and make sure the releif valve is not set for pushing or towing the unit.

    Hi! First look for the relief valve. The best for you look for a good Shop Manual at MTD dealer. May be air in the system. May be bad oil or bad oil filter. I know better Cub Cadet. I have some friend in Bretagne near Gourin Good luck Oldmech

    There is a bolt on the drive shaft , I think behind the transmission fan. Not the coupler at the engine. I have sheared this bolt a couple of times, simple repair.
