Question about John Deere Muffler 1010 Diesel Tractors
I have an older 310A
which runs very well. I have an occaisional problem with the reverser. It sometimes won't go into reverse and this problem will continue for a time until I think its done for and then it starts working again just fine. Its currently on the fritz. Forward works well all the time. The Shift lever moves to the reverse position but nothing engages. When selecting forward you can feel the lever engage but reverse feels different. Like its not engaging anything. I don't think the problem is internal because it comes and goes. I suspect a linikage problem. Any advice is appreciated.

Check first to see if the drive belt has jumped off a pulley or the belt is stretched or broken. Next if there is a grinding noise it means the transmission has a broken or chewed up gear.

I would first check to see if there is any binding in the deck belt's or gears and make sure that the deck is not set to low that you are cutting dirt instead of grass also make sure that all of the rods and opins are secure and are not bent ok?
best regards mike

First off, Mowerman's response was incorrect about the age of a JD 317. They were made from 1979 to 1982.
You can only get manuals either through here: http://techpubs.deere.com/deere/Default.aspx or from a dealer. They're expensive. You can find them on ebay and also here: http://www.ssbtractor.com/tractor_manual_display.cgi?m=John%20Deere&o=317%20Hydrostatic but I haven't used that site.
