MTD Mod. # 190-063 riding mower

Hi and help. Put on new belts back in May. Have used all summer no problems Till now. I have to hold the break in some to get the mower to move. I did the break adjustment and the speed control adjustment set up from MTD book that came with mower. I readjusted a 2nd time and still have the same problem. If anyone knows anything that would cause this please let me know.
Thank you

The number you gave is too vague, we need the complete model number along with the serial number please. You should find these either under the seat or on the main chassis between the rear wheels. Initially, though, I'd say you have brake linkage that is either worn and binding or still not adjusted properly or the brake arm on the tranny is rusted/corroded and hanging up.

I had to do some research to get the right mod and ser #'s. Had the wrong tag with mod # on it. Right Mod # 13bh670f062
Ser # 1e250b80060.
I went through the set up for speed control again. I think I'm doing it righ but still have the same problem. Feels like the break is on and I have to push it about 1/2 way in to get moving up any type of hill. I have form # 770-10115a 10/99
help needed
Thank you
Mike

Check the bearings in the pulleys and make sure the center sheave of the varidrive pulley is able to move up and down.
