I just got a GT-14, and its clear it needs a bit of maintence and repair. I am thinking the first thing I should do is get the engine running smoothly. It bogs down and stalls if I open the throttle too far. So, I want to drain the tank, change the air filter, change the fuel filter and clean the carb this weekend.
However, I am concerned about the availability of replacement parts and gaskets.
I read the K321 manual about servicing the carbs and the only items it mentioned replacing were float nut gasket, the bowl ring gasket, the needles and seats, and the bowl baffle gasket.
I was curious why there were no o-rings mentioned for the adjustment needles. Are there none? And where do you guys get replacement gaskets? I remember someone said that the float nut gasket can be gotten from a hardware store, but what about the bowl ring and baffle gaskets?
My intention was to disassemble and soak the whole carb in aqua seal, but I don't want to dissolve any important rubber parts.
I just purchased my first wheel horse tractor. It is a 1995 520H serial #5901574 and I have a few questions to ask. When I received the tractor the idler pulley on the main drive belt was shot so I replaced it. I notice that the drive belt is still doing a lot of jumping and may be stretched. The parts diagram shows the belt but the diagram doesn't seem to be the same as my model. It lists the drive belt as 5/8" x 83". Can anyone tell me if this is correct? Also the hydro transmission seems to be slightly engaged when in neutral and it will move forward when parked. If I put the brake on it sounds like the transmission is trying to move. Any adjustment for this? I am using this to mow about 3 acres of grass that has a lot of obstacles and I am wonder if the hydro tranny will take a lot of forward and reverse motion? I did tighten the bolt a little on the tranny shift linkage to stop the shift lever from dropping down when it was in motion.
Hi guys! Still new here and not too good at navigsting through the site so i apologize if this has been covered before. I got this '75 c100 last winter for plowing the drive and have found a use for it in clearing my woods the last two months, which after its last use of pulling one tree around and haulin my little cart with tools out there, it seems to be leakin purdy good on the pulley on the left side of the transmission. Always a drip or two here n there, enough to say "yup, its a '75". But i come out today and find an area about a foot in size with oil under her. The case doesnt seem to be craked anywhere where i can see. Seems as though its seeping through the shaft this pulley is on. Is this a common thing? If its fixable, what parts do i need n where do i get them from? Any and all help is much appreciated!
Would someone be able to measure the length of or even take a picture of the last couple inches of 416-8 uni-drive transmission dipstick? I jacked and drained tranny, just a little more than 3 qts, flushed with diesel, and serviced with 2 qts of Lucas 80W-90. Nothing on the stick. The stick ends right after the PN 106447, may be broken off perfectly smooth, and has always been that way since I bought 5-6 years ago. I noticed it but didn't think much about it due to an inch of fluid being on the stick when you checked the level, the extra 1+ qt of oil. Assumed the top of PN on stick must be full line. The oil I drained looked fine, just a little fine metal flake from the oops's over the years from accidental grind and go's (or remains of the missing dipstick?). No appearance of water contamination. I changed the fluid due to a low whine I can't say I noticed over the years or at least it sounds a little louder if was present before. No change in whine after oil change either. Just over 450hrs on it so maybe just "broken-in" whine? Bought with 225 hrs on it from a local old timer Cub Cadet restorer who had changed all the fluids before selling it for a friend. Just to note, the whine has a bit of a hydro tranny noise to it. The higher the range, gear, and speed the louder it is, no whine in neutral. Not too concerned about the whine, just have nothing to compare to. The other 416 is an H to push around the two-stage blower, which I bought together this March. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the hydro compared to the -8 though. Love the -8, hydro is a bit sketchy to operate and drinks gas. May need to buy the pedal control kit I see posted here. Thanks up front for any help guys. Maybe my first post but you all have already helped me quite a bit with your experience and knowledge reading the old posts over the years. Great site.
Got my transmission fixed last year in time for winter and have been mowing all spring/summer no problem until tonight. I got a Raider 12 with a 5060 transmission and when I was mowing the lawn today I went to shift the tractor from 1st to 2nd gear and nothing happened. I didn't hear a grind or anything, but put the tractor back in neutral, shut off the mowing deck and tried going into to gear. The tractor wouldn't move at all. I can still roll the tractor in neutral but shifting the transmission in gear with the tractor off does not have the tractor brake.
I already think I know what the answer is, but is there anyway I did not strip a gear in the transmission and not have to drop the transmission to find and replace the gear that probably stripped?
Thanks for help.
