Symptoms of a linkage that is out of adjustment rear of the tractor frame . See Figure 24.1 . include : â¢ Low ground speed in either direction with no unusual noises from the transaxle . One possible Relief valve rod cause for low ground speed is a linkage that does not transfer all of the pedal travel to the input arm on the transaxle . â¢ â Creeping â when the transaxle is in neutral position . â¢ Whining or growling when the tractor is in Neu - tral with the brake applied . â¢ The creeping and whining symptoms usually accompany one - another , indicating that the link - age is not properly centered around Neutral . â¢ Low ground speed in one direction only ( For - ward or Reverse ) may accompany whining , Figure 24.1 growling or creeping in Neutral if the linkage is out of adjustment . 24.2 .

Begin linkage adjustment by inspecting the link - age . Linkages on equipment that has been in the field are usually out of adjustment because the linkage is binding , worn , bent , or tampered with . 24.6 . Replace any worn or damaged parts before adjusting the linkage . 39 Page: 2
Series 1000 and 1500 24.7 . Turn - off the engine and allow it to cool before 24.15 . Set the parking brake , and remove the drive starting to work on the tractor . To gain access to pedal using a T - 40 driver . See Figure 24.15 . the control linkage , perform the following three steps : T - 40 Screws 24.8 . Remove the cutting deck . 24.9 . Lift and safely support the rear of the tractor . 24.10 . Remove the rear wheels using a 3 / 4 â wrench . 24.11 . Move the control pedal through itâs range of travel ( with the parking brake released ) and look for the following conditions that will cause loss of linkage motion : â¢ Pedal loose on the pedal shaft . â¢ Loose arm that connects the pedal shaft to the control rod . â¢ Worn bushings supporting the pedal shaft . â¢ Worn ferrule or an elongated hole where ferrule Figure 24.15 connects to pedal shaft . 24.16 . Remove and discard the cotter pins that hold the 24.12 . Disconnect the control rod from the pedal shaft inboard bushing in place on both the speed con - by removing the cotter pin that secures the trol assembly and the brake control assembly . adjustable ferrule on the rod to the shaft . See Figure 24.16 . See Figure 24.12 . Cotter pins Adjustable ferrule Figure 24.16 Figure 24.12 24.13 . Confirm that the pedal shaft moves freely in the bushings , and does not bind . 24.14 . Worn pedal shaft bushings are easily replaced using the following 5 steps . NOTE : It is recommended to replace all four bushings at the same time . 40 Page: 3
Series 1000 and 1500 24.17 . Remove the washers and inboard bushings from 24.21 . Install the drive pedal , tightening the screw that both shafts . secures it to a torque of 250 in - lbs . See Figure 24.17 . 24.22 . Move the pedal through itâs range of travel to check for bind . If binding is encountered : â¢ Bind in a portion of the travel may be caused by a bent pedal shaft . â¢ Constant bind is likely to be caused by a bent bracket . â¢ Also check for interference between the park brake and cruise control interlocks . 24.23 . Correct any source of binding . The pedal shaft is easily removed at this point . The bracket may be straightened if damage is minor . 24.24 . Confirm that no unsafe conditions will arise from starting the engine . Figure 24.17 24.25 . Start the engine , and operate it at top - no - load 24.18 . Slide both shafts outboard far enough to create speed .

If the transaxle does not return properly to neu - tral , adjust the input arm to correct the issue , then proceed with the following step . Review the next section for procedures . 24.27 .
