725 Transmission Finally Split with PICS

Recommended Posts

So now that I got the transmission split what is the next step? The whole point of opening it up was because it was getting stuck in 3rd gear. I don't see any obvious problems. But then again this is the first time I have seen the inside of a transmission. Any suggestions?

You're off to a good start, keep taking pics as you go along, to help you remember how to get it back together, slowly spin the shaft and move the shift lever shaft to see if there is any slop or binding going on when you shift it, I hope you have the service manual to go thru the testing procedures. Thats a very clean looking unit.

Looking down on the open trans doesn't tell you much the action you'are looking for is the movement of the gears the shift forks move.if you can simulate the gear shift pattern while it's open you may be able to tell what happening or not happening, possibly a broken collar on one of the gears. The collar being the part of the gear the fork fits into also when reassembling be sure the flat washers go back on the shafts they belong on otherwise it will not bolt flush

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
