Peerless Transaxle 930-057

Original Equipment on my Craftsman 19HP Model 917.256660.
(a) If required, where is the grease plug located on the transaxle for adding grease?
(b) Used 3 days ago without problem, now when I put in any of the 6 forward and 1 reverse gears it is as if in nuetral regardless of engine on or off. Any suggestions?

It's a sealed unit and there's no grease plug.

It sounds to me like the tranny belt came off.

Thank you, cheese.
Is putting the tranny belt back on something a person with modest mechanical skills can do? If so, any reference instructions you can lead me to?

Did you have one of the wheels off?

Nope, the wheels haven't off for a long time.

Fixing the belt (if that's the problem, did you check?) isn't hard. Look under there and see. If the belt came off, it's probably in need of replacement, and there is likely another problem that contributed to it coming off. There may be a bad idler pulley as well. The belt should be fairly simple to install. Generally the v part of the belt goes in the v groove pullies, while the flat backside of the belt goes against the flat pulley(s). Make sure the belt is not touching the belt guides anywhere when the belt is tightened/engaged.
