The check valves not down .

BGB running no problem .

I don't think it is the belt .

Iam now leaning more to the right side gear box on the wheel, what do u guys think ?

I have a complete tranny out of a 7117 , but I hate to do all that work and it could be something simple .

Well, just look and see, when running, if the drive belt is turning the pump. When not running, make sure the belt is tight by physical inspection.

Front to back, cause and effect :D

Before you start it. Make sure the neutral valves are both all the way up (they do stick down), make sure clutch pedal is all the way up (from lack of use on a hydro they stick too), belt is tight, look underneath to make sure the driveshaft is connected at both ends.

Put something in front of the tractor so it can't hurt you or run away if it moves. (another tractor, workbench, car, truck, wheel chocks)

Start it, look behind engine to make sure driveshaft is turning,

put it gently into gear, preferably toward whatever it is blocked with.

next is gearbox, look under right side to see if pulley is turning,

make sure belt is moving,

look behind or thru belt guard to see if fan or pulley is turning on the pump

If the hydro lift works, ignore to this point.

Look inside right rear wheel, is the axle tube turning, it turns the differential houseing, which turns the smaller axle shaft to the opposite wheel.

When you get past all the "yes it is" to the "no it's not", you know where to look.

Excuse me, I just felt like typing LOL

      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!😁
