Okay, right to the point. But first, why isn't a listing for the 30 series compact utility tractors? Ie: 1030,1630, 1830, 2130?
Problem: transmission difficult to shift into gears. I must time my engaging of the range with the engaging of ANY gear (126.96.36.199)
Symptoms and oddities.: When the Hi/lo is in Low, I can smoothly shift into any gear like its a new tractor. BUT, I loose hydraulic supply to all functions like steering and 3PH. I switch back into Hi and all hydraulic functions return to normal but it is again incredibly hard to place any of the gear levers back into neutral. Once in Neutral, very hard to put back in gear.
Hi Lo is working, I can feel the shift down and up.
Oh crap, here's a really bad symptom. Put the ol'e girl on the dyno and in Hi range I get 30 HP, Put her in Lo, HP immediately goes to 43HP.
I have split her and can confirm that All steel lines and free of cracks. Also all sealing rings are in-tacked, none broken or worn down. All castings where rings ride are smooth without any grooving from the sealing rings. Clutch discs, pistons and rings are excellent.
And lastly, when I drive in hi range just a few feet and I step on the clutch pedal, the tractor comes to a dead stop.
Almost feels like Hi and Lo are both pressurized when Im in Hi range. Perhaps that explains the HP loss?
Looking forward to hearing suggestions. I've been doing this line of work for quite a while but this one has me stumped.
Also main clutch/pressure plate have been replaced.
