I have a gt242 lately it seems to be moving slower
and not have the pulling power it once had.
is this a clutch adjustment issue and is that something i can adjust myself?
|Dave||Ron - Some things to check. Level of lube is low. Parking brake is hung up or partially engaged. Splines are worn on the axle shafts. Filter is plugged. Drive belt is worn or loose. Linkage is worn.
I'd check the fluid level and would even consider draining it, putting on a new filter, and refilling. Then I'd take a look at the parking brake, and make sure it's fully disengaging.
After that, I would get under the tractor and check the drive belt running from the engine to the transmission. See if it's worn or loose anywhere. Just don't take it off until you make a sketch or take a photo. If you replace the belt, knowing where the belt goes is a big help.
Next, take a look at the hydro linkage for any visible signs of wear - elongated holes, bent arms, stripped threads. If you find any, replacement parts may be needed.
If all else fails, it's time to pull the axles and check the splines for wear. I doubt this is the problem, unless the transmission box is dry. - Dave
thanks for the help, I will check things out this weekend.
