Had a few issues lately

Last week while putting the deck on I noticed a bar hanging off the left side of my bx under the PTO controls. After some investigating I figured out it was the arm that goes from the diff lock pedal to the diff. It was just dangling from the pedal. I pulled it off and figured I would fix it later. Next, while putting the deck on I discovered that the deck PTO shaft had seize up and I had to beat the hell out of it and then grease it up once I got it apart. Today I went to take the loader off and noticed that the kickstand had the loader sitting crooked. At first I assumed I was on unlevel ground but after moving it still wasn't right. I finally got it off then realized I needed the loader so I could put the deck on and pulled back over to the loader. I had one hell of a time getting it back on. The right side just wouldn't lay into the cradle right. It was at this point I discovered that the left bar on the kickstand was missing the c clip that kept it attached to the pin (why they used c clips instead of a cotter pin I have no idea) was missing and this is why things were crooked. After some wrestling I got the loader back on. I didn't have any c clips on hand so a piece of copper wire twisted tight served to hold it temporarily.
The diff lock bar doesn't seem to be a big deal. I did stop by the dealer and they said if I couldn't get it back in place they would come out and do it. I will probably order the c clip eventually. I might pick up one at the hardware store for a temp fix... I know the copper won't hold forever.
All pretty minor stuff but just a little annoying.

Re: Had a few issues lately

Glad you were able t get it all figured out, Chris. I've never heard of the deck PTO shaft seizing up, but I guess it happens. I guess I should check things under the tractor more often but if parts haven't fallen off by now, they probably won't...I hope.

Re: Had a few issues lately

Chris, sorry to hear about your troubles, normally people down have problems with them. I put some hours on mine this weekend doing yard work. Mine has cotter pins on the loader stand and most other things, never had a anything come off, 9 years old. The PTO ceasing up is odd, where are you storing? Someplace where moisture can get to it? if so, probably should grease stuff more., I grease the shaft splines and u-joints regularly.

Next time you have loader mount issues, shim the back tires to make the tractor tilt the same as the loader, itíll go right on. I use pieces of scrap wood or anything you can run over, sometimes I use my wifeís shoes.

Undoubtedly your not saying when feet get that long they call them yards?
