Hello. I have a massey 1650, bought it used, and sight unseen (normally dont do this, but was willing to wager on it).
It works great, EXCEPT the forward/reverse foot pedal is very loose, and it does not stop very well.
there is no central / neutral stop - i kinda have to find the sweet spot, then pop it in and out of gear (sometimes with grinding gears)
should the pedal normally return to the centre / neutral position (not forward or reverse). is there a relatively easy way to diagnose / fix this? i dont want to damage it.
Unfortunately, this is my first hydrostatic tractor, and im not sure what it is supposed to do.
I bought it because it has a front end loader (homemade) and i had a lot of landscaping to do. that was last year. i did my landscaping, and am done with working the tractor, but i would now like to restore it, maybe..
thanks for any help
