OK so I made a HUGE mistake and loaned my 2305 out. Well it came back and would swear it fell off a trailer.
Front tire with air bubble the size of a baseball, cup holder missing, drive shaft vibrating or bent, trans fan gone, trans fluid looks like motor oil, no power at all, forward pedal hard to push in, dents scratches and was left outside uncovered for over a month. They were supposed to just be cleaning some under brush. LOL
Now my problem.
I ordered a new fan, cup holder and universal joints on Tue were to be here on sat, drove an hour and the fan disappeared, yes before I left I called asked them to check because of the drive and they said all was there. Well they can't reorder the fan until Monday won't be there until Tues some time. Unfortunately in WNC J-D dealers are falling like flies, just none around any more.
My plan is to change out all the parts, drain the hydro fluid, change filter and clean the screen.
My 2305 has never ever missed a maintenance call, fluids and filters always changed more than probably necessary. Trans fluid was changed about 16 months ago or about 120 hrs. It was recent.
My main concern is that right now There is no power, The tractor will barely make it up a 15% incline by itself in low range if I start the rear mower it will just bog down. Reverse is good, all the attachment seem to work OK just a hard forward pedal and no power. But without the fan I don't want to run it for more than a few minutes.
Thanks all in advance!
