I'm Lou. I have been driving a old Ford 120 for about twenty years. It is a Hydro static last year it died as in stopped moving. I grabbed another one with a four speed and switched decks and I'm mowing with it-- but--I want my old Hydro back. I retired over the winter and now I have the time to work on the Fords I have collected to keep me busy when I retired.
I have a couple or other Hydro's that I could switch out but I want to tackle fixing this one.
1. I did have it fixed once and it only ran about ten hours before its demise. This guy told me it was made by peerless. Where can I find a manual for that transmission? Before I run off half cocked what should I check that may be obvious trouble shooting without tearing into it?
2. The deck that I have been using just all of a sudden started throwing its belt. I got a new one and after it threw it twice I quit. can't afford to replace it again. I suspect that it is an alignment problem but how do I check to see which pulley needs the adjustment?
I guess I'm a average backyard mechanic. Anyways great to be on-board and I look forward to hearing from some of the members. Thanks See ya Lou
