    LT150 Lawn Tractor Pedals Reversed

    I purchased a used LT150. The Kohler 15hp runs great. The problem I have is the forward pedal functions as reverse and the reverse pedal functions as forward. I have looked at the pedal linkage and cannot identify what is causing the issue. Anyone who can provide advice on how to solve the problem is greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to GTT!

    Here's the only thing I can post from JDParts.com that could help.



    Maybe check to see if your engine-to-trans belt is routed correctly too.

    It's a long shot but just in case it's possible that the PO tried to work on the transaxle there is a possibility that something inside was reversed making forward and reverse opposite.

    The Tuff Torq K46 in lots of JD and other brand riding mowers is a favorite of DIY'ers to try and fix and it's common to reverse the location of a small part causing this issue. Not saying your LT150 has the same transaxle, but if it does it's a possibility and if it does not perhaps it still is possible if the trans was opened before you purchased it.

    Maybe this will help some, though not much more than what Jason posted.

    As I did research before rebuilding my K46 transaxle there was one caution that was repeated multiple times from various sources; If during the rebuild you place the wedge shaped block in upside down the transaxle will function in reverse operation when pedals are depressed...forward pedal = reverse tractor movement. Sounds like the previous owner made a common mistake. It's a fairly easy fix if you're mechanically inclined.
