welcome to the fourm but your posting in the wrong section and your mower is a 7speed so it must be a vari drive system
1:bumpers
2:gas pedal
3:locked transaxle
4:beer holder (a must LOL)

You should dump the vari drive transmission and get a decent geared one... Its not consensus or anything, but one of the favorite transmissions around here is the peerless 820.
