    Default GC 2400 Motor Issue THOUGHTS PLEASE!!

    I own a Massey GC 2400. This morning while snow blowing all the snow we have gotten here in Central Maine this past week, the tractor started to have a whining noise from engine and the tac buried it self all the way past the red line. This was about half hour into snow blowing with the tac at the 540 mark, the tractor never lost any power and the tac returned to normal position after a few minutes. It has never done this before and always stays in a heated garage. Has this happend to anyone else before? Checked all fluids and everything is normal. I thought possible moisture somewhere? Any thoughts would help before I take it to the dealer........

    Are you sure it wasn't loaded up and when you got to some lighter snow it took off. I'v had this when plowing. Going along with the plow in the ground at 1900rpm lift the plow out and the rpm climbs to 2050 rpm because the load was droped. Diesels ussually whine when reved past their rated rpm.

    Magicheater beat me to it- sounds an awfully lot like the tach cable whining (and being pegged) that was talked about in that thread.
