I have over 600 hours on my 2210. Bought it new in the spring of '04, never any problem. Lately the hydro pedals seem to stick. At first I blamed the $169.oo "torsional dampener" shock absorber type thing in the linkage. After a talk with the service manager at JD he seemed to think it was in the linkage somewhere. I removed the torsional damper and the pedals were still sticking. THen had my wife move the pedals back and forth while I sprayed WD40 on the bearings along the links from the pedals to the hydrostat. When I sprayed on the last bearing before the hydro the pedals began moving freely.
So what I'm looking for is suggestions on how to lube these bearings? Anyone know if they are sealed bearings? What is a good lube to put down there the won't attract dust? Thanks.
