Hi all,

The reverse and forward speeds 1-5 suddenly quit working on my RX-95, but speed 6 and 7 still functioned. I replaced both the primary and secondary belts with new John Deere belts. I followed the service manual to the "t", triple checked my belt routings, and went thru the procedure for adjusting the speed control linkage. Now I have reverse and speeds 2-7, but all the forward speeds are the same (very slow). Speed setting 1 does nothing. All this leads me to the variator (I think). The problem is that I can move the center up and down with my fingers, so it's not siezed. It's not easy to move, but it does move. How free should the center of the variator be; should this be lubed, and it so, how and with what? I'm stumped.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

Welcome to GTTalk Edward. I don't have any knowledge ofthe Variator in question. If you give it some time someone may respond who has more specific knowledge.
