Ok I know it's been a good while. but I hate when people's post leave you hanging with no idea if it was ever resolved. and if it was, what was the solution. Today I picked up the jd 4700 and I can honestly say the transmission is as good as new. it drives like it's brand new !! it's been over 7 months in the process. and multiple mechanics involved. thanks to the assistant service manager ( She has been Awesome!!! the service manager absolutely sucked) it's finally fixed. took her a few phone calls. but she got some old JD techs from another location. and those 2 kicked ass !!!!!! 4 hrs to split it , and disassemble the transmission. another day and a half and it was dialed in ready to go. ultimately the found 2 wear plates out of spec. and also replaced the servo. as the young man who started the project had damaged it. I drove it around today for 2 hrs before a storm came up. and it was pure pleasure driving the 4700. now I gave a new seat and canopy to install. the tractor looks great .
