Its absolutely freezing here in Indiana and I've been plowing some snow with the C165. I've noticed some grinding when driving it and when I shut it off in neutral and go to push it it grinds even worse and the tires are fighting each other. The input shaft doesn't turn when I push or pull the tractor in "neutral" which is good.. Is it possible the shifter screw is loose?
Proud new owner of 1996 416. Was running but then I messed it up. The lever to the right (forward /reverse) was loose. So in a rush I turned the still connected battery over to get to the set screw instead of disconnecting the battery and it arced on the chassis. Leaving a small weld. I set the lever in position and then tried to start it but it wouldn't fire. So here are the symptoms. Starter spins but won't disengage. If I move a lever the starter will disengage. The tractor is really hard to push and therefore I think it's not in gear..
Brand new battery. Checked fuses. Haven't checked spark but feel like it's some safety switch possibly to do with the fact that it is not in neutral
Please help. Want to get her running and have fun.
Thanks in advance
