Stuck!!

Hi

I have Mitsubishi 1800D tractor that I bought on Craigslist. I only needed a little tractor because I have 6 acres, and don't really do anything heavy duty. What I didn't know was that this tractor is almost unheard of, and nobody has any parts for it.

My problem is that as I was using it, it started binding up, and eventually stalled out. Now it is stuck in gear, but won't move. I can't get the gear stick out of gear, with or without the engine running. If I start it with the clutch depressed, as soon as I let the clutch out the engine stalls. Also, I can't move the high/Low selector either. I have tried rocking it backwards and forwards, but can't free anything up.
Does anyone have any ideas where to start looking? I really don't know much about tractors!

Thanks in advance
David

Re: Stuck!!

Sounds like shes definitely stuck in two gears. On the shifting levers suspecting they are down in front of the seat. Do they feel tight or loose ? When shifting while engine is off can you hear or feel them going between the gears on your shifting pattern ? Its possible that the collar that slides on transmission shaft has locked in 1,2 or 3,4.

Moved this to the Chinese Tractors section. You will get more exposure there.

When you said small tractor, I took it to be a CUT tractor, someone correct me if I am wrong, thanks.

Hi, and thanks for responding. The gear shifter is stuck absolutely solid and won't move at all, either with or without the engine running.

Re: Stuck!!

That tractor is not unheard of but it is grey market. They can be good tractors but you can't walk into a tractor dealer and get parts. You may find a manual or parts list pfd online if you search for a bit.
Sounds like your shift forks have slipped out of position and you are jammed between gears. You may be able to access the linkage below the shifter boot if it has an access cover. I have not worked on your model so I don't know what you can access without splitting the tractor. Unfortunately you have to split most tractors to do much transmission work. If you have to do this, you will need a garage to work in with either some hoists, cranes, or at least a couple of floor Jack's, and a few jack stands. It is not a small job even on a small tractor, so plan on it taking a space in the garage for a week to month depending on what parts you order. I may be a good idea to replace the clutch and rebuild the transmission so you don't have to do it again soon.

Is there a cover that the levers go thru ? Any pics you can add ?

Were you in the middle of shifting gears, or just driving along when this happened?

If it came about slowly while you were simply driving, I would suspect it is not a case of grabbing two gears at the same time. That would have resulted in an abrupt halt with drive wheels skidding.

2WD or 4WD ? Has it got the correct tire sizes so both front and rear are turning in sync at the correct speed? Have you tried jacking it up so the wheels can turn freely / independently, relieving any driveline preload?

Did you check the oil level in the trans? Did you then drop the trans oil plug and check for "gray matter"? Grindings, bits of bearings or teeth?

As suggested, if you can, remove the shifter boot and see if you can lift the shifter out. You may be able to move the forks about with a big screw driver?

Would you be lucky enough to have a row of bolts around the top of the trans.... as in removeable top?

Just a heads-up... Mitsubishi is Japanese, not Chinese.

Agree jacking it off the ground and see if that relieves the bind.

Re: Stuck!!

That's a 4WD tractor correct? And you had it in 4WD, correct?

It's bound up. Get all 4 wheels up in the air and let it unwind and take the pressure off the driveline, and hope that you didn't break something. They're not like your AWD passenger vehicle-the 4WD isn't meant to operate on any hard surface, even dry ground.

suggested this a few days ago and have not heard back.

"2WD or 4WD ? Has it got the correct tire sizes so both front and rear are turning in sync at the correct speed? Have you tried jacking it up so the wheels can turn freely / independently, relieving any driveline preload?"

Hopefully it relieved the driveline preload and resolved the issue.

Re: Stuck!!

Hi

No, this is a 2WD.

At the moment the tractor is stuck on a soft surface and I'm having trouble jacking it up. I'm hoping I can get a friend to help me tow (drag it, since the rear wheels are locked) to some hard ground!

Thanks
David
