So I just posted recently concerning a stuck clutch on my D-250.
I pulled the deck, inspected everything, got frustrated, posted on Red Square and got some pretty solid advice.
So under the guidance of Garry and Squonk, I was able to "unstick" the clutch by jolting the thing loose in top gear. It worked perfectly... Except... Now the thing is physically stuck in high range and the lever won't budge.
It definitely worked just fine only moments before the clutch trick.
Did I break something in the gear box?
I did remove and reinstall the deck which I initially thought may have been installed wrong and could have been making physical contact with the linkage, but upon further inspection, doesn't appear to be although I admit I can't see it all.
I was SO happy... Lol... It was working again and now this... Seems to be my kind of luck.
Any tips or tricks for this issue?
Thanks so much for your replies ahead of time.
I have also apparently developed a completely unrelated fuel issue which I'll post separately on the engine forum.
Thanks y'all... I really appreciate it.
I DID manage to get the grass cut... I don't really like mowing in high range 1st gear but it was the only option... I guess some good came out of the situation.
Hey guys and gals...
Had something super weird happen.
I went to start my D-250 (Renault Engine) and the clutch won't work.
So, instead of mowing for my 4th of July cookout, I pulled the 60" deck out and climbed underneath.
The clutch linkages are intact and the throw out lever was a little bit loose on the adjustment rod.
I adjusted the slack out of the throw out lever and prayed...
I fear something is internally wrong with the clutch.
The weird thing is that it worked fine when I last used it. How could something break sitting still?
I'm frustrated and confused.
I have a parts breakdown for the clutch assembly and I am dreading having to pull the whole motor to work on it.
Any advice? Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Happy 4th everyone!
1975 C-120 Automatic, 12hp Kohler. HARD SHIFTING PROBLEM
Starting to shift hard especially going into reverse. Also, shifting is not 'smooth'.
Tried adjusting 'Friction Collar' looser and snugger. Made it a little better but then things locked up - it did not want to go into reverse.
Manually pushed wheel to get tractor to go into reverse.
Could it be the:
Cam on the neutral adjustment,
Lubrication on the neutral adjustment,
The friction collar?
