B-12 screech out of trans. or diff.

While mowing lawn today the gearbox started to screech. It does this in 1st, 2nd and 3rd, coasting forward or backwards but not in reverse. Anyone know what this could be.

This is normal if you are stopping from a fast speed, and going downhill. This is true when it is in neutraul also, it just the gears keeping the mower from going to fast downhill or when stopping hope this helps -Brad

Check the lube in the rear end. Sounds like the reverse idler is causing the noise. Happened to me a few years ago I took it apart and found out that there was no lube in the rear end. Good luck

I have had this B-12 for 34 years. This is the first time I have heard this noise. The lube is at the proper level. Thanks anyways
