Kubota T1600 Diesel Garden Tractor

Diane Pastushyn We recently purchased an ol Kubota T1600 Diesel 2 cyl. hydrostatic garden tractor. We cannot find any leever to put it into 'neutral'. Also, as soon as the engine heats up, it starts shaking violently. What would be the cause and 'fix' to this problem? Lastly, what kind of oil is used in the hydrostatic transmission?

Thanks for your help.

jm. Let,s see one thing at a time..There is no nutrual lever. Nutral is achived by placing the foot pedal in the not foward or not reverse position. Otherwise level or in nutural. It is normal for the unit to want to CREEP foward some.
Now for the shaking when warmed up. I suspect you have a cylinder not hiting or the engine is missing on one cylinder . Posible causes, bad injector, low compresion, bad fuel ect. Transmission fluid is KUBOTA udt fluid or streight 30 wt oil if udt is not avl. UDT is prefered.

Kirk Another cause could be valve adjustment.
Kirk Forgot... when the enging warms up the valve
adjustment will change, most will close the gap
and cause the valves to stay open just enough
to cause a miss fire. This would cause a shaking
engine. Will also burn the valves after using for
a while.

Hank Can't find the fuse on 1990 T1600H diesel. I know where the fuse link is, but can' find the fuse under the instrument panel where the manual shows.
Wayne Oglesby If you are attempting to move the tractor while the engine is not running is the reason you are looking for neutral there is a black knob under the seat that when pulled up and towards the front of the mower will allow it to be manually pushed or moved. Otherwise it is locked in gear when not running.
