109 Hydrostatic Drive Adjustment

Mon Oct 27, 2003 8:27 pm

I recently aquired a Cadet 109 with Hydrostatic drive. Everything seems to work Ok with this tractor except the hydrostatic drive lever will not stay put. It slowly slows down from the set position, and I have to keep pushing the lever back up. Isn't there some way to adjust the friction on this lever? Thanks.

I'm not sure just where it is on your tractor, but if you follow the hydrostat lever to it's pivot point you should find a friction adjustment.

This may help.

A owners and sevice manual may help too. They can be had from Binder books.
