Had the 317 out today leveling my gravel driveway and suddenly started getting a vibration, mainly felt thru the floorboards of the fender pan. checked the motor and it seemed tight and the motor mounts felt like they were working correctly. Also hydro fluid is at correct level.
Had to finish up, and noticed that vibration was not as bad when tractor was not moving or when i was not raising/lowering the front blade.
My fear is that the drive shaft is going/gone bad, but dont understand why it started so suddenly.
BTW, last week when i had the tractor out last, it did throw the pto belt off for the deck, dont think this is related but wanted to mention it just in case.
thanks for any ideas/suggestions!!
