Hi I have a yardman ride on lawn tractor with no motor, I was wondering why when I lift up the rear end both tires spin opposite ways, and when I put it on the ground the same thing happens, I have try ed pressing the clutch brake but nothing works not even the rod on the transmission can someone please tell me how I can get it so both rear wheels spin the same way
Rear wheels spin opposite ways

Welcome to GTT. You have to disengage the bypass circuit(shown in the first pic). The wheels spinning opposite is the way that a normal diferential works. If you jack up the rear end of a rear wheel drive car(or truck) they will do the same thing. The mechanism in the rear allows you to turn corners(one wheel turning faster than the other). The way it works allows the the wheels to turn opposite when they are of the ground. If you get stuck, one wheel will turn but the other won't. A limited slip differential will spin both wheels. My Allis Chalmers GTs and my Bolens GTs have the limited slip. You can investigate some of the Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day). Good Luck, Rick
