/ pt1430 wont go forward or backward basically stuck in front yard #11
Exactly. It is the lack of load change on the engine that makes me think it is a drive pump, or drive pump control issue.When my pin brakes accidentally come on, even just one wheel, the machine won't move and you can hear the engine load change if you try.
From the tram pump pictures, we now know it's a hydraulically operated treadle.thanks everyone, the oil level is good. the parking brake is off. i called terry today and he had me jack up the rear end and use the lift arms and the bucket to lift the front end. he had me then shut it off and turn each wheel to see if one had was harder to turn. the rear left did not move as easy seemed to clutch and then move. i had a spare wheel motor and replaced it and still wont move. called terry back and he seems to think its the tram motor. he said it was the motor closest to the engine. i believe this is it. i have to get caps for all the hoses. i havent taken the plates off to look at the treadle mechanism. its pouring rain out. also with it stuck down in the front yard i dont have cell phone reception to call him. also not sure where the tow ports are in order to get it towed out of the front yard. will have to get caps for all the hoses and a hose with fittings it says to jumper between the tow ports. does anyone who have a 1430 know for sure where they are? i'll check the tredle connector by removing the plates surrounding it hopefully tommorrow. if you have had to take the tram motor out how hard was it? did you have to take the pto/steering motor off first? thanks for your help and suggestions
