Shuttle shift noise.

Recommended Posts

I played with the 3416s today. Got the cast 16 running great after rebuilding the carb. The tractor will move forward with no odd noises, But when I start to bach up the shuttle shift makes a some what loud whine-squule (spelling) sound. Is this normal? the tractor has set for a couple of years. George

Check your belt adjustment closely. Go strickly by the book as there are several key adjustments and each needs to be correct for proper operation. A few things to look for would be worn belts, the forward belt not loosening up enough to allow the split sheave sides to spin opposite of each other when reverse is engaged. Also the neutral brake dragging or the reverse band worn ad metal on metal squeal. Just a few things off the top of my head.

I have the book but I didn't think it would sound like it does. I'm goint to transplant it into a wards squire 9. I was looking at the 16 horse cast iron engine in the 3416s and might transplant it also. Don't know what to call it after that. Wardslicity model 916S?

My 713S does not make the noise that everyone is talking about. Maybe I just got lucky. I will admit that I have never read the book on adjusting these trannys. I just set mine to what I thought is the way it should be. As I said before, I got lucky. Paul's beautiful 416S and my 713S were both working fine when we did the nearly 2 mile ride(parade) at Spring Fling on Saturday. Guess both adjustment setups were working.

I would tend to agree, if all of your adjustments are correct. A customer came in with a T-16S to have the belts replaced and adjusted. Worked great but the planetary really whined in reverse. When I disassembled it, the grease was hard and hollowed out around the gears. Cleaned and repacked it, and it quieted down. Still a slight whine in reverse, but nothing I would consider out of the ordinary. Pat

I'm always leary of pulling things like this apart. I'm always thinking that there might be a big spring inside and 82 parts are going to go flying around the barn of witch I can only find 76 and 2 of the parts are NLA!!!B):D:D:D I will tear it apart when I pull the tractor apart. Thanks for the help. George
