Seems like I have no power to the wheels some times going up a grade, even low ramps on a trailer? Checked the drive level and it looks good and clean. This does not happen all the time but makes it hard to mow.
I believe these was one of the Auto gear drive tractors, which means it was a 6-speed gear drive, but with foot control. The problem with these is that most operators used them wrong, trying to drive them like a hydro using the foot controls to increase and decrease speed like they were a hydro. This was hard on the clutch and leads to clutch slipping. The way these were supposed to be driven was you selected your gear and then pressed the motion pedal, either forward or reverse, all the way down. When you stop completely removed your foot and hit the brake. I believe you could shim the clutch a little if it was slipping, but I would have to go over to OCC or to IHCC and do a search on how to do this. I would check those sites out or do a search here to see if the procedure can be found.
