good afternoon Ken my name is ***** ***** like you have a big issue on your hands but im sure we can work threw this. first off what trans do you have in this tractor?
does the squeal sound like its coming from the engine or the drive train?
so is the engine not running correctly?
the first thing you need to do is determine if the issue is in the drive train or the engine. without being there to hear or see there is no way for me to tell by what you are describing. the white smoke could be from excessive load from the trans or it could be a head gasket. the squealing could be an engine belt, alternator or engine failure. or it could be a bearing going bad in the transmission.
i would check your fluids and see if your engine or hydraulic oil is low to start with and maybe we can narrow it down from there
then i would GUESS that your looking at an issue in the drive train and should have a knowledgeable technician put his eyes and ears on it before more damage happens. there isnt just one clear cut repair on this im afraid and from where i sit if i gave you any suggestions i would be wasting your time. i worked with John Deere for 10 years and saw many different issues with these tractors and the PTO drive train. I'm sorry that i couldnt give you a solid answer. I hope you take my advise and get man out there to do a good diagnosis on this machine
thank you for using JA
again super sorry
please when you have a second rate the service so as i can get credit and stay around another day. good luck and if you want a second opinion on the diagnosis i would be more than happy to help
