That may be the problem with the power director on the D14 I picked up yesterday. When I tried it out last week it went into low and high fine and didn"t try to move in neutral. Today it tried to move in neutral when I loaded and unloaded the tractor.
We had had a huge amount of rainfall and the breather cap is not on the tractor. Where it sat outside I knew the oil bath would be full of water and oil, which it was. So before moving it I emptied out the oil bath and filled it with some 30 weight. I wanted to clean out the carb before running it much, in case it inhaled some of the oil/water sludge; so I didn"t run it very long at all.
The oil looks pretty dirty, so I have an oil filter on order from Advance, ordered it today and it should be at the store in the morning.
