So my 2720's tach/hour meter stopped working.
I tear it apart and it seems that the tach mechanism turns very hard. The gear on the back of the tach has a been stripped of the teeth in one spot.
I can attach a drill and run the tach over and it works altho it does not drop to zero all the time.
You can turn the gear on the back by hand but it is very hard.
I can attach the cable and put the drill on the engine side of the cable and when I try the drill it just spins the cable into a pretzel.
For some reason the tach is very hard to turn.
Now All I need is a new tach, I can take the instrument cluster apart and get it out.
BUT NO. JD only sells the instrument cluster as an assembly, and guess what the price of the cluster is, $775.
I can afford the new cluster but getting raped does not sit well with me.
Gotta decide if I'm even gonna bother fixing it.
Only need the tach when running the mower on the 3 pt.
I wish I could find a used one, I'd go for that.
