    I actually dropped both trannys, (oil looked dark green and gloopy) drain and refilled with oem synthetic, and nothing.
    I did the purge..nothing...checked tension and lubed...now off to try a different belt. i had put on a cub belt last season.

    I have a RZT50. Had it for about 7 years now, with 290 hours. After the first year I had it, the left side transmission went out. Had it replaced under warranty. Well, anyways, I got to looking at it a year later, and the hydrostat that they put in was a little different than the other one. The only thing I noticed, was that the replaced one had a vent tube coming out of the top, down the side about 6 inches. The original side hydro has a hose going up under the seat to a fluid resevoir. Well, I retrofitted the fitting, got rid of the vent tube, and ran it up to the resevoir.
    I dont know about your machines, but do most of them have these fluid resevoirs? I see warnings not to power wash them, and was wondering if that only pertained to the ones with vents. Thanks

    I am having the same problem with my cub-cadet that I purchased a little over 2 years ago. Rt clutch makes lots of noise and doesn't work when warm, works for a little while when cold. Tried to find the manuals mentioned but couldn't despite following the links given. Does anyone have an idea where those may be posted now?

    Looks like Hydro-Gear changed the location of the manual. Here's the new link.

    Thank you so much, "OldMachinist"! I've got the manual. Working hard at the out-of-the-house job this week, but hope to be able to get to this next week. Should be "easy" with the manual at hand and friends that can answer questions!
