Thank you for the response

I was going to suggest to drain the oil and check for metallic color

it sounds like you have a bearing failing

ok I will check off and on

The grinding you are experiencing will be nothing to do with electronic controls on this tractor The only thing the controls are ding is replacing the old style linkage or cable controls. The clutches and gears in the transmission still operate on the same principals. Since you hear grinding that is a gear problem and shift problem which is internal. If you are not seeing metal being produced from this grinding it is either because you are not looking at the bottom of the case or in the filter/screen internally for a good sample inspection. or the problem just started and not long enough for metal production.

what is your recommendation tear down the tractor to locate the problem
Customer reply replied 30 days ago
When the drain plug was pulled there was no metal present on the magnetic end of the plug

If there is not metal whatsoever, first i would change the oil to be sure Low viscosity oil is in the tractor.... commonly this can be missed and the standard higuard used which is thicker. In a lot of cases this has helped with the noise and cavitation issues with the pump.
