210 Running Great, But When Try To Engage Deck....
Posted May 29, 2012 - 10:48 AM
got my 'new' 210 running great----cleaned carb, put on fuel filter, new spark plug----cannot believe can. tire had plugs for this, as well as for my 185,
but, always a but, now when i try to put it into 3rd gear it pops out-- when tractor starts moving??
(hopefully just adjustment needed),
Also, when I try to engage deck-it kills motor, feels and sounds like something does not want to turn?-- -of course if I was less impatient, I would take deck off, and check things out first----but it is soooooo... cold, honestly the month of March was better in Manitoba...
As always, any help or suggestions is/are appreciated,

The gear "pop-out" issue is common on the Peerless 2300 transaxle. It is a warning sign pointing to greater potential problems. The shift detent springs are like getting weak from age and/or the shift forks have worn. Either way can lead to a trashed transaxle. Time to replace them as it will only get worse.
The deck issue could be numerous things including:
- bad spindle bearings
- bad idler bearings
I would expect it to be a bad bearing some where or a belt jammed in a spindle under the protective cover on the deck. Remove the main drive belt and give the drive pulley on the deck a spin.

they should hope you a lot
Deere still has the springs (part number M40350) around $286 each and balls (part # M40351) around %1.38 each for the transaxles
