Time to dig into the transmission?

Postby havoc1482 » Tue Feb 03, 2015 12:25 pm

So, my tractor is now making this clacking noise from the transmission. It was always noisy and I figured it was a bearing in the main shaft. I've got a loss of power and some unpleasant noises from the transmission.

With the engine off - Can you try and engage the PTO then press the clutch and rotate the PTO shaft by hand and see if you can hear anything with the tranny open?

Did that when it was open. Almost sounded like two gears almost catching\meshing, but skipping by each other. That noise was at the very front of the transmission. I didn't notice any more gear wear from the last time I opened it up in the early fall to replace the gasket. Maybe my forks bent and pushing gears too close? Idk, I definitely know there is a bearing issue in there from before, its annoyingly loud under load.

What shape is the oil slinger gear in? It is the only one engaged in neutral. One bad tooth or some foreign material stuck in a tooth can make that sort of sound.

Oil slinger looked alright, didn't notice any major damage to the teeth

It doesn't take much to make a lot of noise. Inspect the oil slinger very carefully, An imbedded chip from somewhere can do it.
