Hydro Problems 5216

Recommended Posts

Imacarguytoo
It was too late to start the mower to move it. So for the 1st time i moved the lever for neutral. Now when i start it and go to move the hydro shifter it clicks real fast in forward gear and wont move. I cant find any linkage or anything on the rearend for that lever so i have no clue whats going on. All the times ive mowed its moved fine. Anyone have any ideas??

So is it still in the free wheeling position and you cannot get it to engage? Have you tried to rock the tractor back and forth a little while you move the lever back into place? Do this without the engine running. I can feel it jump into place on my Vickers, but your Sunstrand may not "feel" the same, however the wheels will resist rolling once it engages.

Mark has the right idea. Here's a link to another with the same problem. I think he finally pulled the "plunger" out with a claw hammer. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=70771

I couldnt wait. I sprayed it. Let it soak for a few minutes. It pulled right out with pliers. Now the tranny is ingaged. Thanks guys for the help, as always this board is a saver.

gregc, Thanks for posting that thread. :D (It's nice to have these manuals too) I now own that tractor wminmi had trouble with the lever. I have no idea what he finally did to it to fix, but it works great. On Edit: I e-mailed wminmi and asked what he did that finally fixed the problem. He said that he sprayed the plunger with PB Blaster very liberally on and off for 3 days until it finally popped out on its own.

What totally bites though, as once i wrestled the rearend out , i grabbed a claw hammer, grabbed the plunger deal with the claw and it popped right out B) Spun the drive pulley by hand and moved the hydro engagement lever back and forth, and all seems well :D [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/5a.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/6a.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/7a.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/8a.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/9a.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/wminmi/10a.jpg[/img]

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
