  1. Fuel cutoff issues with 955.

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    It appears now that my fuel cutoff solenoid is not getting energized sometimes when I crank the engine, thus it will not start. Possibly the ignition is not getting power to the solenoid; I notice that when I manually open/Shut the solenoid it will then start and somehow enough power gets to the...
  2. Haying with my 955 Revisited, hydraulic questions

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    Ok I have installed the Enorossi mower on my 955, but it has challenged me with the hydraulic lift: the lift piston is a single hose and breather set up. The 955's rear ports for the backhoe might be fine with a valve kit, but I would think that I would have to modify the lift piston into a...
  3. John Deere 955 motor mounts

    Utility Tractors
    Looking for advice on replacing the four motor mounts for a John Deere 955 tractor 1. The bolt the centers the mount holding it to the frame and fits into a bolt underneath is there a need for a 90 degree wrench to hold the nut while loosening the bolt? 2. On the rear left side of the engine...
  4. 955 Gauges INOP and Only starts full throttle...then stalls

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    My 955 Sub Compact was running fine until a couple of weeks ago. Now it has a few things wrong, that all seem to be connected. 1. Will only start with throttle on full, but does not stay running long, as if it's just running itself out of fuel. 2. When I it turn off and remove the key, it...
  5. Front Drive Train issues: 955

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    I'll try to post some pix tomorrow, but I finally was able to extract the front axle from my 955(without breaking off the power steering hoses!). Opening up the right front final drive housing I discovered that the short bearing hub had sheared right off the housing, so the large bevel final...

  7. Sticky hydraulic valve on 955 Rockshaft

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    A while ago I posted that my rockshaft arms had lowered themselves and would not raise up. I rebuilt the Rockshaft control valve assembly...everything worked for about 4-5 months until I ran the log splitter off the rear hydraulics worked briefly right after I disconnected the...
  8. 955 hydraulic filter replacement question

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    Dear 955 owners, I have always intended to replace my hydraulic oil filter*, but keep wondering if I need to drain all the hydraulic oil first. Obviously there will be the filter's hydraulic oil contents spilling around, but what about the rest? Maybe the answer to my question is that I...
  9. Water in diesel?

    Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    Of course I was out snowblowing in the middle of this snowstorm. Tractor ran fine, then suddenly stopped. Let it sit a few moments then cranked and it started again, ran rough for a moment, then ran ok for about 2 more minutes, then same routine. Same again after that. Made it to the barn...
