It may just be that the bands need adjusting. Check the archives for this forum (many discussions of this topic there) or a manual for the process.

If the problem is indeed the bands and they are beyond adjusting, things get pricey. So by all means try the adjustment first.

Greetings Mark! By all means, refer him to the archives BUT search under 300U also and he should see the headstands I had to go thru last month and it might help him more than a little. Mine was also bogging down under load. Last week, though, I ran a PTO wood chipper on it for several hours and chipped some box elder with 4-6" diameter trunks. Tractor was leaking pretty good by the end of the day but the PTO never shut down.

Hi, Dave!

Glad to hear things are working out so well.

I just bought a Bush Hog from my neighbor, so pretty soon I'll get to try out the PTO on my 350 Utility for the first time. It has its work cut out for it: just short of 10 acres of mostly autumn olives.

I am glad to hear that the drastic linkage measures worked. Jim

Indeed! I thought I had posted about it but guess not. It powered up the chipper with no problem. Never a hiccup when I put those larger chunks into the machine. I am hoping it will be a rock star on the PHD so my shovel and I can enjoy semi-retirement from planting trees. Your advice was gold as usual. It was all in the linkage and exactly where you suggested it might be. Some good back-door cash work from a local machinist and I was good to go. Have to discuss these leaks another time. Why a guy would pay a lot of money to have engine work done and leave it leaking like that is a mystery. I need to isolate the leak but me thinks and fears it is the rear main. I am not really liking the prospect of splitting it but I'll do what I have to do.

Thanks. Mains and Pain do rhyme do they not. Jim

Yes they do. My only experience was on my Cub Loboy and the fun there is that there are issues with failure after repair. Wish I could remember, but I think the retainer has to be machined to make a good fit. Fortunately we had a great guy in SE Michigan who would take yours and give you a machined one for a small fee. It wasn't the hardest job I ever did (splitting a cub) but doing this 300U with the loaded tires wears me out thinking about it. Yes, mains = pains (my back, my knees, shoulder, etc). I'm just not sure how I am going to separate the halves if they give me grief, but that's borrowing trouble...

That's the same reason my grain truck gets a quart of Rear Main Seal Stop Leak with every change. Oil is pretty cheap when weighed against the trouble of splitting something.
