first I will say sorry for my bad english.
Im Steffen from Germany and we have a JD 455 at our Sports Club.
I've read to this Community now for a while.
This helps me to get better understanding on our JD455
Now i want to fix several issues which i found at the tractor.
First there is a leak on the shaft for switching between the rear and the middle pto ( dont know the right name for it). I ve searching at the JD parts list and found an O Ring which is fitted in the back cover auf the TA.
Now i dont know, if it is possible to change these O Ring whitout removal the Cover of the PTO. When i take a nearer look to the shaft, there is no space to see where i can fit the O Ring in, as you can see at the picture.
The second problem are leaking check valves at the free wheeling lever. Can i easilly replace the upper O Ring at the valves to fix it or is this really hard to do as it was told in other posts.
The next problem are vibrating pedals when i will drive forward or reverse and i push them to hard and fast. Also they seems to be loose. I can easilly shake them. I dont know if this is an issue or normal. Also the latch to fix the speed is really lose an shaking arround to the frame.
So i need to learn what is wrong whith the tractor or what is normal.
I will hope you can help me a little bit to solve my problems and getting the 455 ready for the next years.
