Open Question

Ransome 728 The forward and reverse travel has slowed considerably. We have checked the Bowden cable, oil levels, wear in the pedal. The linkage from the hydrostatic pump moves back and forth but is reasonably stiff. What could he problems be? Many thanks Mark

SOURCE: Hydrostatic mower goes in reverse but not forward. Only 73 hrs on it!

On my hydrostatic there is an adjustment on the forward/back lever which can be made to run all reverse or all forward. Normal setting gives both of course. Look at that adjustment. Maybe something let go.

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: lt1000 hydrostatic drive stuck - will not engauge or disengauge

Does the tractor try to move or **** in any direction, if so you may want to check to see if the disk that controls the brakes is stuck, I've seen this many times.

SOURCE: husquvarna hydrostatic mower won't move

Sounds like the belt going to the hydrostate broke. Or a key on one of the pulleys broke. The belt runs inside of the frame and is hard to see.

SOURCE: The transmission is slipping on

The clutch that graps against the flywheel has worn facings. You can find that part inside the trans axle if wished. A new one will be needed although on the Honda models they can be reversed to operate so yours maybe done that was as well. Some can and some can not be reversed

Model YTH180 tractor. Why does it go fine in forward but reverse is slow?

Linkages to the transaxle may be wore or out of adjustment also check the brakes they could be binding while reversing.
Low ground speed: If the linkage is not synchronized to absolute neutral, or the shift lever is not properly fastened to the tapered control shaft, full forward / reverse travel may not be achieved. This may cause a false reading and be misdiagnosed as a low power condition. This also could be caused by the brake not releasing.
To determine absolute neutral, the hole in the tapered control shaft must face straight up and down, at this point make sure the OEM linkage is in neutral. To properly fasten the control lever to the shaft, torque the nut to 25-35 ft. lbs. (34 - 48.3 Nm) of torque with the shaft and the lever in neutral. When attaching the shifter arm to the shaft you must prevent any rotation during torquing. This can be done
by placing a long 5/16 bolt in the hole of the shaft. Hold the bolt until the tapers are locked and the nut torque is correct. To make sure that the brake is not binding, drive the unit up a slight grade.. Position the speed control lever into neutral. The unit should coast backwards. If the unit does not coast back slowly, the brake is not
released from the brake disk. Adjust the brake linkage to release the brake completely when the foot pedal is released.

The Hydrostatic transmission on my Lt150 mower is making a screeching noise when I push on the forward/reverse pedal. The mower will move very slow then stop. It is not the drive belt!

Check trans. oil for debris and quantity. If level is low try topping up first and if this works it would pay to disassemble in the near future, clean the oil filter and fill with clean oil.

How do i trouble shoot automatic transmission that shifts from park to reverse with the gear shift but the car will not move?

Sounds like the shift cable is off the transmission under the hood. Raise the hood and check to see if the cable is moving the linkage going into the transmission when the shift lever is moved in the car. Be sure to have park brake on.

Clutch slipping adjust

you have a 580 ck backhoe and a red box so I am not as to what the red box is referring to . As far as the case backhoe I believe the 580 ck is a hydromagnit and is a 1985 to 88 vintage there are two linkages on one side to do quick turns you can stop a wheel and turn that direction while turning the steering wheel to the same direction but this is a brake adjustment the two pedals on lets say passenger side for clarity or left side looking from the from has two pedals the one on the far right is the pedal for right side and the one on the left side is for the left brake, on the oppsite side of the machine you have a foot pedal that disengages the transmission by pushing down on the pedal and there are adjustments to that pedal as well you can shorten the Travel of the pedal by loosening the locking nut and then turning the clevis's after you have removed the cotter pin and the clevis pin then you can shorten or lengthen it's travel to change it. From off the top of my head I believe the most common problem with these backhoes was the clevis pin rod would get bent or the clevis pin would wear out and cause slipping from the transmission, but it is not a clutch per Se it is an actuating rod that engages the tork converter There is also a valve on the back of the transmission that is electrically engaged that comes loose that would cause it to slip. so after checking that the clevis pin rod is straight then check that the differential has oil in it and also the transmission has oil in it if either are low in oil it can cause it to slip so check that too. there is the possibility that the forward and reverse handle may be out of adjustment and or worn causing it not to work but you will have to go step by step, check fluid levels also have you changed the transmission oil filter? this can cause it to slip as well. good luck finding out your problem check the top transmission oil level too if you have not done so as this could cause you problems as well. if you need any more information just post to this answer and I will try to help you as much as I can but your better off buying a book on it to figure your problem out if your don't know anything about this tractor.

Just had clutch, flywheel, Throwout bearing, ect. replaced-now will not shift into reverse after moving forward without raking gears and having to force into reverse. The clutch pedal now has very little...

is the clutch cable operated or hydraulic if cable operated ,the cable is too tight and needs to be let off a couple of turns, if hydraulic make sure there are no leaks present ,also check the gear linkages that nothing got snagged when refitting the gearbox

50hp force that jumps in an out of gear

I need year model to be precise? But here are the basic tools and troubleshooting steps. TOOL (1) a black marker.(2) a tape measure (3) a second person. TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS(1) the force need water so put it in the lake or install water hose.(2) do not start engine yet. remove engine cover and find shift cable by shifting remote control. once you find were the shift cable connects to the shift linkage. learn which way is forward and reverse. is it push or pull by the cable. remove the cable.(3) now the shift mechanism is removed from the boat controls. this test will require you shifting the shift linkage by hand so stay clear of the flywheel and all moving parts. (4) start engine. at idle speed and you in a safe location near the shift linkage shift engine into forward gear by the shift linkage. be aware how far you need to move the linkage before it shifts into forward. Mark that location with the maker somewhere you can see.(5) shift the linkage back to neutral. mark location were neutral begins. you will fill it click out of the forward gear.(6)now shift into reverse gear marking that location.(7) shift it to neutral making that location as you fill it leave the gear(8) shut off engine turn off water or take it out of lake (9) look at you marks and measure the distance between neutral and forward. the measure the distance between neutral and reverse(9) the second person needs to be in the boat to work the remote control. you need to be at the engine with the tape measure. person #2 needs to make sure remote control is in neutral. you need to measure the remote control cable end so you get a measurment with it in neutral. make a note of the neutral lenght.(10) person #2 shift remote control into forward gear. you measure cable end for distance traveled to go to forward.(11) make the measurement for reverse same way.(12) this is how you find out if you clutch dog is to wore out to stay in gear by the travel of the shift linkage compared to the travel of the shift cable. There are adjustments but they only go so far. that means you will have to sacrifice one gear for the other to make up for the distance of travel.

SECTION 412-01: Air Distribution and Filtering 2001 Focus Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Air Distribution and Filtering The new heating and ventilation system ensures even air distribution.
The temperature control and air distribution flaps are controlled by two operating cables. All vehicles have a recirculated air function, with the flap controlled by a servo motor.
Air is supplied to the windscreen and side windows regardless of the air distribution setting.
The clean air filter is fitted as standard in most countries. This cleans the incoming fresh air of pollen and dirt particles. It must be renewed after every 40,000 km under normal operation conditions, or after 20,000 km under difficult conditions. If no clean air filter is installed, a plastic grille is fitted over the air intake. This can easily be replaced with a clean air filter.
Air distribution operating switch
Face level The main flow of air enters the passenger compartment at face level.
Face level/floor level The main flow of air enters the passenger compartment in equal parts at face level and floor level, and a small amount flows to the demister nozzles of the side windows.
Floor level The main flow of air enters the passenger compartment at floor level, and a smaller amount flows to the demister nozzles of the side windows.
Demist/floor level The main flow of air enters the passenger compartment in equal parts at the windscreen and at floor level, and a smaller amount flows to the demister nozzles of the side windows.
Demist The main flow of air enters the passenger compartment at the windscreen and a smaller amount flows to the demister nozzles of the side windows.
Air distribution operating switch Air distribution operating cables
NOTE: The Bowden cables for LHD and RHD vehicles are identical. However, they are fastened to the air flap operating mechanism with the respective reverse side of their connectors.
The air distribution switch operates with two Bowden cables. The cables operate the air distribution valves in the heater housing.
To remove and install the cables, the rotary switch must be turned as far as it will go to the left. The air flap mechanism engages easily in this position, making the installation of the cables easier.
