jdlt150, I dont know if this will help, I am not familiar with your tractor, but I just had a small issue with my foward travel pedal. When I put everything back together, I screwed the pedal on too far preventing it from engaging the trans completely, the bottom of the pedal would hit the floor without pushing the linkage far enough. The tractor was slow. When I backed off the pedal a 1/2 " or so, it allowed the linkage to be depressed further when the pedal was pushed down to the floor. I hope this helps and your repair is as easy.
