Back again. So the grass got tall while I was dealing with the hydraulic pipe repair. The MFWD shaft got completely wound up in grass. Took an hour to clean out. Now iím worried about the front seal as I thought I saw something drip from that location. I canít seem to locate the right diagram for ordering the part. There is a rubber shield covering the shaft at that location so hard to see if the seal is compromised but the grass I pulled out was slightly black. Didnít seem too tightly packed in the front but the back was difficult to clean out.
How would I check the front and back seals? What parts diagram would these be located in. Yes, Iíve looked but no luck finding them so far.
Being a newbie I had no idea this could happen. I noticed an extreme lack of power and the forward pedal seemed stiff. Ran so much better today after the clean out. Ran with the bucket low, low ,low to knock down the grass in advance. Any tricks to avoid this happening again? Just praying the seals are ok. Will look for tell tale puddles tomorrow. Didnít know this could cause seal failure until I got home from cutting. This site is invaluable to us novices but at the same time it scares the crapola out of me every time I see post about another 2320 catastrophe.
Starting to feel a little discouraged since I seem to be spending more time under the tractor than on it.
This is what my tractor looked like last week. Is this what splitting looks like? Not sure about that term but I know I want to avoid it.
