Identifying Tractor Noises (excellent discussion on troubleshooting) (.docx)
Screaming hydraulic pump when cold? = Your hydraulic fluid does not meet OEM specs!
Tractor does not move when cold? = Put it in neutral and let trans fluid warm up
Tractor stalls after running awhile? = see section on fuel lines, the return line could have a small leak
Tractor won't start after changing filters and bleeding everything you can find including yourself? = Open two fuel lines one at a time just ahead of the injector and crank each time until fuel squirts out
Tractor gets flat tires when working in mud? = weld short piece of pipe around snout (with tire and tube off obviously)
Front cross tube cracked? = Weld angle iron stiffener from one arm to the other (see my pic) same for rear boom cracks
Dash lights and gauges don't work? = there is an inline fuse up behind the gauge cluster
