Thank u

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven’t tried much of anything yet I don’t want to mess it up any more

Kind of feels a hair looser
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

Do you have a lot of free play in the clutch pedal travel? Needs to be about 3/4 inch of freeplay.?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I’m not really sure what u mean by freeplay
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

How far the clutch pedal is pushed before you have resistance from the throwout collar.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Feels like a few inches
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

The rod from the pedal to the lever on the clutch housing is the adjustment, you may try to give clutch pedal less free play, which lets clutch release earlier.

It feels like when I put it in gear the transmission is moving
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

The gear shift can be jammed in the transmission and the shift cover would have to be removed to get the transmission into neutral, so it can be shifted.??

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
it just won’t move
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

Do you have neutral, does the shifter move back and forth in neutral or is it jammed?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Back and forth even when off
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

Feel any difference or has it always been like this?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

I have a Kioti 7320 with cab and loader. I purchased this tractor from a family estate . the first owner was 85 years old retired farmer and bought this sole to drive to town for groceries as he could not get a drivers licence renewed . long story short , no feed work on this tractor , I purchased it like new condition with 125 hrs back in march 2020 , I used it on the snow blower a few times and to drive around the farm . it has always had a terrible vibration while moving either in or out of*****. I am an experienced farmer with many tractors over 50 years but this has me stumped . the dealership is 3.r hrs away and yet has come up with a verbal solution . it has a warranty until July 2021 and I think this is a uncommon issue however I am looking for some expert opinion.
