Simplicity 5216 Hydrostatic Problem

Recommended Posts

Sounds like internal pump housing is cracked [common problem with that model]if oil and filter change,slipping belt or control adjustment dont fix it?,, when cold its ok when hot too much fluid leaks out the crack[bypasses]One way to check this is to see if it is very noisy when it dont move..also excessive foaming of oil is a bad sign too,,if thats true then thats you're problem.NOT a cheap fix,,a new housing is 250 bucks,, imo of course,,

My Dad has a 5216 that seems to have a hydrostatic transmission problem. When the unit is cold, everything works just fine. After about 1 to 1 1/2 hours of use, the transmission does not respond at all. If you shut it off and let it cool down for a few hours -- it is fine again. Dad said that he has never changed the trans fluid (bad, bad dad!) -- do you think that could be the issue? Also, when we do change it, it there a trans fluid filter (where)? Thank You

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
