A Couple Of D4-7 Questions
Posted June 23, 2012 - 02:46 PM
I've come to a bit of a grinding halt though due to a few things. When I parked it, it rolled fine. Now it only moves roughly an inch or so F or R. I've noticed the shifting knob will not move up or down, it will wiggle, but it's not changing gears at all. If I raise the rear end, the tires spin freely in opposite directions.
I've looked and from what I see, part #S2279 of the transaxle won't move. That goes to the PTO in/out I believe.
My other question is, the PTO & High/Low gear levers for the D4-7, when I go to reinstall them, they slant at an angle. It doesn't look correct at all. Other than the manual, does anyone have a photo from under the steering column to show what that looks like? The D4-10 has what looks to be a bar that goes from one to the other, mine didn't have that when I took it apart.
Thank you all so very much!

Not having a D4-7 I can't say for sure on the hi/lo, but I would think it's the same as the D4-10, and there is a 5/16" steel rod that goes through holes in the frame & the hi/lo shift levers slide onto this rod.
Some pics of yours would go a long way to help. I'll see if I have any pics of that area.

Here is a picture of my dash......the levers are not hooked up so not sure this will be of any help.

I can see the metal piece that is supposed to go into the hole on the left side which I snapped a photo of, but not one on the right side.
I didn't get a chance to take the lid off to inspect why it's not moving forward or reverse. Will do that tomorrow.

did you pull the top off to see if the cluster gear was moving on the rod?? I was thinking you said you could not get it out of gear. I would start here first......
My memory of the rear pto....it was actually an optional piece.....I had a d4-10 that was capped back there and no rear pto.....
You should be able to loosen up the bolts on the rear pto and it should just slide out the rear. That way you can see if it is impeding any movement. But wait and check the cluster gear and look inside the cover of the gear box to see if something is not working there......

If you did get this functioning without a good cleaning, then the rust & scale will end up in the final drive & you could eat up the ring & pinion, and more.

Any idea where the water was getting in?
