Does moving the transmission selector lever to NEUTRAL also lock the linkage from the foot pedal to the trans?

 

If it wasn't so danged cold out, I'd go check, but thought I'd ask here first.

Yes.

 

If you have the 1886 in drive and the foot pedal is in neutral, will the tractor roll down a hill? Also how stiff/loose should the movement of the pedal feel?

I don't believe so the only thing that i would think is a Brake interlock like on the tube-frames and yes it Very cold had to do work on a onan carb my fingers are Frozen !!!

This Q is about the 1886 FL.  It's in NEUTRAL, and the foot pedal doesn't move except if just a wee bit, maybe an 1/8" and it stops.

 

 At first I thought it was disconnecter/bound up somehow, but once I got it home I could see that it's connected to the trans, so I'm hoping the it is indeed just locked by being in neutral.

 

It was on a tilt trailer and rolled off of it with no problem, but then again, the lever is in neutral, not drive or park.

It's the drive/neutral/park lever that's in neutral.  The foot pedal is in the center position as well, but won;t move more than a 1/8" or so.  I can see that it is connected to the trans and that the linkage there also moves just that wee bit.

 

It was on a tilt trailer, and rolled off of it just fine with the above configuration.

 

I'm hoping that being in NEUTRAL does lock it, and that I don't have to pull the seat/fender pan to get it working properly.

Thanks...that means that it will have a good chance of moving under it's own power once I get the engine running :D :D :D

Have you tried putting it in Drive and seeing if the pedal will move without the engine running?  I'm assuming that the engine doesn't have to be running for the hydro pedal to move?

The way it works is

 

Lever in park locks the parking pawl into the gear in the rearend and nothing moves including the pedal

Lever in the neutral removes the parking pawl from the gear and allows freewheeling. Hydro pedal still will not move.

Lever in drive releases pump bypass valve and puts hydro pedal linkage in the slot so you can operate pedal for forward and reverse.
