This Craftsman GT5000 Garden Tractor has a hydrostatic transmission with hand control. When the transmission is moved forward, and than put back into neutral it continues to creep forward. Fixing the problem involves adjusting the control arm by loosening a adjusting bolt which is located underneath the right fender and connected to the control arm. To get access to the adjustment bolt, remove the right rear tire. I was able to jack up the rear of the tractor and start it, so I could test the tractor while the rear of the tractor was off the ground. The adjustment requires very small movements until the right position is found. You will know when it is adjusted correctly when the tractor rear wheels do not turn with the transmission is put in neutral from forward and reverse position.
