tranny noise

Thu Sep 23, 2004 5:05 pm

I was mowing in 2nd, got about 2/3 done and I started to notice a clicking noise, like something in the wheel was hitting something every revolution. :( I stopped looked for something loose, lug nuts etc and could not find anything obvious. Started moving again, felt the transmission top and I could feel it there. It also appears to get faster when I turn left. Is it in the transmission, or due to the speed is it in the final drive? Also the speed does not appear to change when in 1st.

Did you check the 4 bolts that connect the center disk to the rim :?: 8)

When you turn left, are your right wheel and all of the associated parts on that side of the transaxle turning faster than their left-side counterparts?

If so, I would first suspect something involved with your right-side bearings.

Also check wheel weight bolts.

Also check the brake drum
