3112H Hydrostatic Adjustment

Recommended Posts

I'm finding that my 3112H is having a lot of strain when trying to start the engine. I believe the hydrostatic pump is still engaged when trying to start the engine and that is loading the starter. Does anyone know if the pump will be free running when the tractor is in neutral or better if all the load should be removed when a starting the engine of a normally adjusted 3112H?

Push in on the clutch when starting to see if there is a difference. Check the pulleys on the clutch are turning free and not freezing up. If the clutch is ingaged the hydro pump is ingaged. The control handle only directs flow of fluid.

The hydro should'nt put much drag on the engine unless it's stroked and the mowr tries to move when you crank it. if somethings loading I'd check things over good before much more use to see if you have other problems.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
