Recommended Posts

JCS
On the plow tractor AC 914H I had the steering gear box apart when i bought it because it wouldnt steer and wirebrushed and neverseized everything. it is all stiff again and i sprayed it a couple of times before it would steer, why does this get stiff? #2 on the blower tractor Simplicity 7119 the throttle cable "rusts" or get sticky and when i force it the cable sheating slides and causes problems with the tighting screw located under the throttle handle. #3 the plow tractor seems to start easier when i push the clutch (which i never use) in but the blower tractor it doesnt seem to matter.. Please answeer any of the above questions

JCS #1. It could be the kind of lube you used on the steering gear and the bearings. Some greases will harden up with time. #2. Try putting a dimple in the clamp that holds the cable sheath. Use a center punch. In fact I would probably put one on each side. I think this is what Al Eden said that he did when replacing the throttle cable. #3. You should always push in the clutch. Even on a hydro, there can be residual pressure in the pump that will load the engine when starting. One that starts easily without the clutch is usually a unit that has leaked most of the fluid back into the reservoir. One that turns hard without the clutch pushed in is usually a unit that has very good seals and keeps the whole system full of fluid so that it is pumping full pressure even while starting. My 716H leaks down if I let it sit for awhile. It takes a few seconds for the system to prime itself the first time I move the stick out of neutral.
