Maintenance - Service & Repair / 8345 Clutch Issues
« on: March 21, 2019, 11:17:29 AM »
Greetings from a clueless new owner of a 8345. This tractor so far confuses the crap out of me. It was my wife's grandfather's tractor. It sat for years until he gave it to me, notice the word "gave". He had trouble finding parts and obviously manuals. The starter failed and he somehow find a replacement starter with what looks like a reducing gear attached? Anyhow, this last winter I was using it to level out a driveway going uphill with the blade down. I pushed in the clutch to shuttle sift into reverse, then it would do no more. Would not go forward or reverse under its own power. Nothing sounds wrong and you can even hear the RPM's hesitate a little when you release the clutch but it does nothing. I really never figured out the gears on this thing but I really only used a couple of them. I checked the hydraulic fluid and other than it appears to have had some water in the case at some point, little white color, it is full.
Can anyone clue me in as to what I should look at next or walk me through my next move since I cannot find any manuals on this model anywhere, what to try?
