    Default How to adjust L3800 HST neutral?

    Anyone know how to adjust where neutral is on the L3800 HST pedal? The tractor shuts down when I get off the seat and I've isolated it down to the safety switch thinking the tractor is not in neutral.

    Any help appreciated!

    Try putting the parking brake on.

    What does that do for the HST pedal?

    Thanks!

    Still looking for an answer to this... Is there a way to adjust the HST neutral point so the safety switch will allow the tractor to start and then not shut down when you get off the seat?

    I put a piece of tape on the moving part that contacts the safety switch and that did the trick. However I'm looking for the proper solution rather than jury-rigging it.

    Thanks.

    I take it you don't have a shop manual. The next best thing is download a parts manual and look it over real good. With one you see how it works if you look at it long enough. I don't have a parts manual for your tractor otherwise I would send it to you. Try kubotabooks.com

    No I don't have the shop manual but I know I need it. I found one at Messicks and will need to order...
