Yes a green ? jd 300 hydrostat drive is very jerky

Recommended Posts

I am working on my pastor's JD 300 garden tractor. I started out fixing a oil leak from the engine. Is it common for Koehler to have a lot of pressure in the crankcase? When you put your hand over the dip stick tub after removing the dip stick there is enough pressure to cover your hand with oil. After replacing the bushing that goes around the governor rod coming out of the crankcase and removing the deck to sharpen the blades and replacing the deck. He said the hydrostat drive was very jerky and now he said it won't go at all. I drove it after I put it back together and it did seem jerky. Thank you for any ideas that you may have.?

Check the breather to see if it's working, if it isn't that could be causing the high crankcase pressure. Do a search to find more info, I know I've seen recent posts on that. Ask him when the fluid and filter were last changed on the hydro, maybe it's due for both......

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
