I know in the past someone posted up the sizes/numbers for the o-rings that fit between the hydro pump and the steel lines' manifold blocks on the D-series - I'd imagine the ones at the pump end and rear axle are the same ....?
Will be changing my pump soon due to the hydro to engine coupler blew out it's splines and took out the shaft along with it . Evidently a trailer weighing around 2.5 tons was too much....
I'll try to write up a post on how to build a new coupler from a later model C series pump pulley's center ring and a worn D coupler as well - trying to finish up the Ross steering box right now .
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!
