Need Help With Jacobsen Trans
Posted September 01, 2012 - 06:04 PM
My four speed UT 34001 is tough to get into gear while running. Can a bad bearing on that rear idler be what's causing this? The belt stops with the foot clutch in.

If a belt has drag how is it repaired? Do I have to replace the belt then?
The belt may be stopped, but still have drag on it. If it does still have drag, it will be hard to shift.

Is it grinding or just hard to move the lever into hear with no grinding? If it grinds belt is not stopping fully,if it is hard to shift with out any grinding,then it may have a bent shift fork shaft of bad forks . The latter means removal of the trans axle to repair.
Well, when the tractor is not running, the 4 speed shifts real good and firm with no hangups. So , the problem with getting it in gear is when its running. Seems like the belt has a hard time stopping with the clutch all the way in. Can a bad belt do this?
All the best

Can this bad belt also make a loud noise while the tractor is in motion?
I am very excited about raising this tractor from the dead. I also have the 2 stage 42" snowblower to go with it.
Sure appreciate your help.

So, when you replace the belt check all you belt keepers and the idler pulley bearing, also check the drive and driven pulleys for rust and wear.

After looking at the parts list, doesn't look like it would take much to make this a hydro. Or at least a shaft driven gear drive!
