I was pulling the trailer around today with the D200. You know the one I just got back together after learning how to rebuild the hydro system. All I had on it was a little 5HP chipper,just going around from pile to pile shredding leaves. I was all done and heading back to the shed, I felt a grumble. It stopped moving, no forward or reverse, no grinding of metal on metal nothing. The 3PTh still works. I can push it with ease and I dont hear the normal hydro clakity clak when I do push it. I guess something gave up in the rearend. IDK what it could be at this point, hope its something simple like a snap ring but knowing how this tractor is I will probably have to rebuild the hydro again because stuff got sucked up into it. I had already upgraded the diff to the 3/8 grade 9 bolts so I dont think they snapped.

 

Oh well, guess I get to go into the rearend again.

I'm not familiar with your hydro, but my Allis 620 did the same thing. It sheared the roll pin on the charge pump

 It was an easy fix.

Hope it's something simple.

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your rear-end. I hate it when they just let go like that without any warning. It just stinks! It gives you the feeling of no control. Seems to happen to me all of the time.

 

Now wait a minute, before people starting getting the wrong impression, I'm referring to his transmission. :smilewink:

My buddy's did the same exact thing. Take out the trans and replace the sheared key on the counter shaft.

Hope It's simple too, but if not, you're practiced up on tranny disassembly.

If it was the charge pump pin sheared, his hydraulic lift wouldn't work.  Must be more involved.

Well so far all of the fixes have been realativley simple. The orignal problem was busted pinion gears in the diff, then just resurfacing the valve plates in the pump and motor. The problem has been just being able to find the time to get to it and disassemble the tractor to get to it. Unfortunatley I have gotten pretty good at dropping the transaxle out from under it.

 

It Kinda reminds me of when I was a teenager. My best friend had a 57 chevy long bed PU with 3 on the tree. The first time he tore out the the tranny,it took us all day to pul and replace it. By the last time he did it, we could do it in under 1.5 hours.

 

I have anticipated having more problems with the D200, so I have been stockpiling parts from ebay. I just hope its something I already have in my stock.

Thats a bummer, no bun intended. Troy said it was your rear end being problematic. Then Kenny rubbed it raw! Hope you find the problem soon!

UPDATE: ITS FIXED

 

Turned out not be as painful as a messy rearend, I was bummed to begin with but in the end everything came out OK. A little prying, a little straining, even had to hunch my back a few times to get it worked out, butt I did it.

 

:bigrofl:

 

 

Turns out the lock screws that keep the wheel hub on the axle worked loose and the hub and wheel slid inward toward the transaxle. This took the hub away from the key so the axle was spining but wasnt turning the hub. Got it cleaned up and put back on and everything worked out ok.
