Frozen WD Transmission?

Report to Moderator

I went to start my WD yesterday and it kills the engine when the foot clutch is let out. It does this when the hand clutch is in either position. I am assuming that there was water, that is now ice, in the transmission and/or differential. I now have it in the shop with the Knipco heater warming everything up. I plan on draining the transmission, differential and PTO and then adding new 80-90 W gear lube. Am I headed in the right direction??? Would appreciate any advice.

Ted, unless your fluids are old and need changing you do not need to change them at all. You mentioned putting it into the shop, I hope you lifted it in if you had major resistance. If the gears have not moved for a week or so mother nature will seperate the oil from the water, just crack the plug, do not remove it. After the water drips turn into oil drips --tighten the plug. I would not just assume it is a water leak problem, rather it is a good chance being condensation. This method of removing water is what Grandpa refers to as should do regular type jobs. It will not work if you mix it first by driving the tractor. Dave NE Iowa

Sounds reasonable. Hows the transmission shift lever boot? Might be a good time to replace the hydraulic fluid too.

Thanks for the advice. The boot on the shift lever is shot...I am sure that is how the water got in there in the first place. I did get it going today...Only took about 10 gallons of kerosene in the Knipco heater. I will check the final drives tommorrow...good advice.

WD XMSN; If you don't need the tractor during the cold weather try doing nothing until spring and warmer weather. Then change all your fluids and check all your normal tractor features. I just "had" to start and run my tractor in late November and tore up about $1400 worth of parts.
Same deal I had layers of ice in engine casing and finals, mother nature won that day. It all
was repaired but never had to break in the first

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
