Question Huskee 18.5 hp 42" deck burning smell

When I put my mower in drive, and engage it in high speed, it kicks back to a lower speed. If I try to manually keep it in high speed there is a burning smell like the clutch. It also runs rough. The belts are fine. Does the mower take oil in the rear axel? I found a resovoir in the rear axel, but i cannot find any way to access/fill it. It looks like it has an allen wrench cap, but I cannot open it. Is it supposed to be removed? What is this for?

Without knowing what exact machine you have, I'd guess a bearing is going bad somewhere. How old is the machine? What is the model number of the machine? Do you get smoke? Does the burning smell smell like rubber?

Echoing Legal's request, if you give us the model number of your unit, we can find all the particulars about it and will be better able to help you.
