I test drove the 8630 on Saturday morning. She went up and down through the gears o.k. Throttle was a tad heavy but nothing too bad. She jumped a little between 9th and 10th..... no leaks or unwanted oil visible anywhere. there were a few thing that I was not sure about though.
When the tractor was idling and the pto engaged, there was a slight rattle in the back end - what would cause this?
Secondly there was a slight problem with the electrics, the a/c, wipers, front lights and the digital dash and the hour meter were all not working, - I suspect that this may be due to a blown fuse etc?
How do you change the pto from 1000 (narrow spline) to 540 ( wide spline) rpm - the chap that was selling the tractor said that he was only using it for pulling a low loader and dump trailer so he didn't use the pto and I didn't notice a shift leaver. Is it that the pto has to be turned around?
Any info that anyone has on this would greatly appreciated,
