I have a 1992 Lowes brand MTD 12.5hp 42in cut model number 132-669G062 riding mower I just purchased for cheap.I have a couple questions to ask first is what is the little lever that is on the piece where you adjust the deck height like you have the big handle you use to adjust height and all the way up disengages blades then there is a little lever on bottom you can move up and down the piece with slots in it for height selection.My second question is what would cause the blades to keep turning when you pull handle all the way up it is suppose to disengage them when its all the way up.Thanks

Welcome to GTT. I am not familiar with that tractor but you may find the Manual for it in our Manuals Section. You can download 3 for free per day. Good Luck, Rick

Hello,

 

The answer to the second part of your question is when you pull the lever all the way up and lock it in place the blades should disenegage. This is the screwiest setup ever. Normally the deck height and the PTO lever are separate levers. But on this model they decided to combine both.

The first part of your question you pretty much answered yourself. The little lever is for the deck height stop so you remember were you have the deck set at. Now as for the deck not stopping it could be two different causes. First is the incorrect belt on the deck. The other thing could be a broken linkage. Remove the belt from the drive pulley and see if the deck will swing to the front of the tractor when you raise the lift arm to the disengage area. If it does then a new belt that is correct should fix the problem. If it does not look and see if a broken spring or linkage has happened.

 

If you find you need something for it or just have some more questions feel free to send me a pm or give us a call as we stock most of the parts for the tractor.

You are correct I forgot the brake and that would be the first place to start.

My 1994 had the blade brake on it. But I think the deck height was separate.

I think I am correct in  saying that lever is a height adjustment stop. It is supposed to keep you from dropping the blades lower than you want to. I have yet to see one that works as it should.
