Drop the pan and see if the sleeve o-rings are leaking. The dropping out of 3rd could be the end of the shifter ball is worn and not fully getting the gears meshed right. I know some of the other models had that issue. Can be fixed by welding and grinding on the end of the shifter.
Re: Antifreeze in oil and jumping out of thrid gear in reply to Aaron SEIA, 06-02-2013 19:15:22
I took off the oil pan and left the tractor sit for a couple of days. I didn't notice any obvious leaks aroung the cylinders. But it did seem to drip a little on the front side of the engine. I was wondering if there was an frost plug in the front of the engine? The frost plugs on the top of the head looked dry. Any suggestions what to check next?
