My tractor sprinkler was running fine and then suddenly stopped. What should I look for as the problem?

My sprinkler did (something like) this a couple of times (very infrequently) - the arms seemed "seized" (cannot rotate clockwise or counter clockwise) but, I was able to get them moving again by picking up the sprinkler (a couple of inches) by the sprinkler arm T-pipe. Picking it up this way, vertically, seemed to "un-stick" the arms.

Of course, if your sprinkler is very old (12 years?) the gear box may be worn, it would cost about a quarter to a third as much as a brand new sprinkler to replace. You can find the parts you need by reading the question about where to get parts at FixYa.

Where can I get parts for tractor

Part suppliers are very limited for this item. And it was the only place I found other than the LR Nelson manufacturer.

T fitting on top of tractor that the sprinkler arms attach to

To remove: Hold the plastic nut under the "T" arm assembly and use your other hand to unscrew the "T".
To replace do just the opposite. Do not over tighten, you can crack the retaining nut.

Nelson traveling sprinkler broken plastic part

I just took mine apart about a week ago. If, I recall correctly, you broke the T piece. That black plastic or nylon nut that is still connected to the transmission should thread off fairly easily.

I expect you can buy the part from Nelson.

If, solution #1 is correct and you find you cannot get the part, I've done some truly amazing repairs with that epoxy product called PC7. Depending how much of the part is broken and or missing, you might find a combination of what you have plus a brass T fitting plus the PC 7 will get it working.

You have nothing to loose.
