Fred Zeller Hello,
I bought a 332 John Deere Diesel. Everything works well except the hydrostat. I changed the filter and the hydro. oil, but I still have the problem.
When cutting the grass and I come to a small hill the tractor stops. I push the hydro. way up and climb the hill but than it takes off like a rabbit, and I have to pull the hydro. way back. Any help will be very much appreciated. Fred

Dale G. Basgall Fred :

You may have a pulley on the top of the transmission that has splines inside that are bad and the pulley needs replaced. Take off the fan and pulley and inspect them, I have had the same problem and found that to be the cause.


Dave Fred - There's no pulley on the 332 transmission. It's drive shaft driven. Chances are you have some worn components in the linkage to the transmission. You'll need to get the tech manual if you don't have it already. There were several linkage versions that Deere used on the 300 series tractors of that vintage. So you'll first need to identify the setup yours has, and go from there. - Dave
