    Default clicking sound

    i have a B7200 kubota 4 wheel drive. i bought it recently, and thus far love it. when i go from forward to reverse, or reverse to forward, i hear a clicking sound. appears to be coming from the rear axel/wheel area. do the rear wheel attachment thingies periodictly loosen up and need tightening? any imput would be appreciated...oakwood

    Always a good idea to tighten up your rear wheel attachment thingies or lug nuts(wheel nuts) periodically.
    They have been known to loosen up.

    All thingies get loose with age. Best to check them frequently and tighten when necessary. It is commonly known as maintenance....

    Oakwood,
    There is a bolt on the back of the hub that tightens a shim to keep the hub tight on the axle. On my B7500, it has to be re-torqued about every 50 hours.

    WELCOME TO THE FORUM: i would suggest u tighten all lug nuts on the wheels and anything else that may have come loose, u may want to take the wieght off the wheels before u tighten them. also ask your bride if she would rather u check out porno sites instead [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Oakwood,
    My manual says 91 to 108 ft/lbs. I always give it at least 105. I also periodically remove the wheel and hub from the axle and clean it thoroughly. Sometimes it gets dirty enough that it won't snug down properly. This is a common thing and I have included it in my regular maintenance. If you don't keep it clean and tight, it can actually wear both the hub and the axle.

    Hope this helps,
    Greg

    I recently was doing some dirt work with a friend's kubota 2960(?) that has 2 piece rear rims. A slight popping noise began and steadily got worse. The sound seemed to increase/decrease in frequency as speed increased/decreased. I checked the rear lugs and the 4 bolts holding the outer rim to the center section and found them loose. Tightening them stopped the noise. The other rear wheel had been welded where the 4 bolts had been.

    i torqued the bolts to the designated foot pounds and it did quiet the clicking noise. the weather here in pa. over the weekend was so nice, i took advantage of it. useing my fel i moved about 10 tons of dirt/sand. its my first real experience in useing it and im like a kid in a candy store. like you stated greg i might have to pull and clean them also. this might prove to be fun, since the ties are foam filled.

    Oakwood,
    My tires are filled also. It really isn't as bad as you might think. If you carefully jack the rear axle just high enough to take the load off the tire, you can "tip" them off the studs, without having to lift the tire.

    Did you find any of your lug nuts or bolts loose? Just want to make sure we aren't misdiagnosing something. A "clicking sound" could mean a lot of different things. The technical term for the sound the loose hub bolts make has also been described on TBN as "eernt, eernt, eernt"......
