Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question

What else turns with the belt? Did you turn each accessory like the alternator? Water pump?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no, nothing. it only turns with the motor and hydraulic pump.

No drop in hydraulic performance? How long has the noise been present? Hydraulic pump drive can make noise.

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question

This is Kubota engine. No pulleys damaged or the belt itself? Anything can cause a clicking when running, but the idler bearing is the most likely, but you have already checked it.?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
we've taken the idler off the tractor and inspected it. no cracks or damage. the bearing spins smoothly
with no sound
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the sound is louder when the hydraulics are being used or under load. example, driving up a small incline, putting the rear box up etc

Hydraulic pump drive might be the noise.
