Snapper Mower Problem

I've got a Snapper Rear Engine riding mower Series 22. Over the past few days it has been making a kind of an "Er" noise when moving. It seems to make it every revolution. It jerks every time it makes the noise. We were thinking it might have something to do with the clutch. Could someone tell me what's wrong, and if so how to fix it? Thanks.

There are a lot of things that could cause the symptom you described. Stand it up and have a look at the drive system. See if the rear wheels feel wobbly. Look at the axle boots. Are they broken or gone? See if the axles move up and down in the fender. Look at the clutch driven disk for bad spots, and look at the drive disk for scrapes. There are a lot of parts under there, and inspection is about the only way to know which one is the problem.

Just an initial guess, but I'll bet the rubber drive disc is well worn and especially in one spot whereas the aluminum retainer of such is making contact with the drive plate.
