Trouble with John Deere 214-noisy transmission?
I have a JD 214 lawn tractor. Has a 4 speed transmission with the variable speed control lever. On an incline, when you are pulling in 3rd or 4th gear, it mades a loud roaring sound. The sound quits when going downhill or not in a hard pull. Trying to figure if it is a bad pulley bearing or something wrong with variable speed control or in the transaxle?? Have checked the transaxle and it full of gear oil. Has anyone run into this kind of problem before or have any ideas what to check to find the problem??
