When you have a chance, look in the left rear wheel well of your GC2310. The transmission lever (slow/neutral/fast) was badly chafing and cutting into a hydraulic line on my tractor (see picture). Replacing that hydraulic hose would have required disassembly pretty deep into the wheel well.

I'm thinking about wrapping the hydraulic hose with a protective hose, but that will block easy operation of the transmission lever. Or maybe filing 1/8" off the forward "leg" of the metal yoke on the safety interlock mechanism. How have you dealt with this issue?

By George, you're right! (Though I think you meant the right rear wheel...)

Just looked at mine and I can see where it chafes... OTOH, my 2310 now has over 900 hours and the chafing is pretty minimal....

Can't remember now which one, but I did have to replace one of those three lines in that area some years back. As I recall, a bit of a PITA.
