Okay folks, Have a couple of issues with my rear end on the tractor. I am not concerned about the first issue but if anyone has any ideas about the 2nd/3rd that would be great. I will be away a few days from posting this but will respond back to any posts on Wednesday.
#1: My rear end - wheels specifically are very loose - I can wobble them back and forth and there is a bunch of play there. This developed today after about 2hrs of use which included 4-6 uses of the controlled differential being wound up. It was unwound when not required. Surface was loose soil. There was no play prior to use today. Any ideas as to why it became loose so quickly? Or just reset the rear end adjustment and be done with it. I will do that but I wouldn't mind working out as to why it came so loose in the first place.
#2- It can be quite hard to shift between gears. This is a fairly new issue, started after I pulled all the covers off the gearbox, removed shift lever etc. It is not specific to any one gear and whilst it will always slip easily into one, sometimes selecting another requires quite a sharp tug to get it in. This was existing well before issue #1 so I don't think they are related.
#3- Have a bit of a oil leak developing, it drips off the RH rear engine bolt. Is not the governor seal or breaker box/ breather plate. Will degrease and take a closer look. Anyone seen a similar leak before though?
