446 speed control issues
Posted August 22, 2011 - 05:02 PM
however, either going forward or reverse is a little (mostly alot) jerky. weather your trying to speed up or slow down, every increment you move the lever it jerks to that speed sharply.
also, when your going down a hill in low, it wants to "freewheel", so you have to use the parking brake to slow down or stop. haven't tried it in high to see if it also does it in that as of yet, nor reverse.
what do i need to look for? i don't have alot of experience with these cases, or their speed controls. anybody?:blush2:

Check the linkage for slop. Easy to see with the access plate removed. Also the ball joint going into the valve is something to check

i think it may just be that i'm not exactly in tune with this tractor, don't know the quirks so to speak. good thing it taint mine. i like it, just don't seem to feel comfy using a tiller speed control i guess. considering this particular tractor is going to have a loader added to it in the fall. too many hands not on the steering wheel:puke2:
i'm going to look at the valve and see if there is any problems just in case (). i don't really think there is but.....

If it doesn't have a holding valve I would definitely get one before putting a loader on it.
WHAAAA? and take away all the fun?
oh yeah, i'll be looking for one before that happens, if it doesn't already have one thats just either dirty, stuck or broken:smile1:

in high, it will hold everytime, but struggles to get up a 2' high hill. the pump starts whining like a 3 year old kid:blush2: so i guess i have a little more work on this tractor before i see it go.
so what do i need to look at now? where is the 'holding valve' located?
for some reason i can't load a manual for this tractor from anywhere:confuse:
i have top men on the job of figuring that issue out. top men.
and the tractor still wants to run a little warm.....
OOOOOH WHY DO I PICK THESE EASY JOBS?

Something ain't right. According to service bulletins I have seen on this model the pump should whine like a teenager when you take away their iPhone.
