Re: The Myths of the TA

The TA is one mystery I've been content to let remain mysterious up to this point, and would just as soon have it remain that way in the future. As long as it keeps working. About the only thing I know about it is how to adjust the clutch (following the directions in the user manual).

After reading these recent posts, I'm still left clueless as to what is being recommended to avoid unnecessary damage to the TA:

Are we recommending turning off the engine with the TA in the "low" side?

Is this potential damage from the engine kicking back when the TA is in the "high" side avoided if the transmission is in neutral when you turn the engine off? Or if the clutch pedal is depressed when turning off the engine? Or if you do both?

Are there other things to avoid, or have we decided they are "myths"?

Somehow, I'm missing the punch line(s) here - could someone who thinks they know how this thing works come up with a coherent, simple set of things to do, or avoid doing, without too much additional verbage? Surely would be useful, and appreciated by those of us who would like to use the TA properly, and hopefully avoid the more detailed knowledge to be gained by fixing it after having used it improperly. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to perform this service.

The best way to avoid damage is to shut the engine down in the low side or the main clutch disengaged. Even with the transmission in neural , the TA will lock up when turned backwards in the high side. I agree that over time that you would develop flat spot from normal wear, but these ramps and rollers are very hard. I took the it to a machine shop to see if they could reface the ramps in it, but because of the heat treatment of the ramps they didnít have anything to touch it. A new overrunning clutch assembly from IH is $427. I did find a remanufactured one for $117. Donít take a genesis to figure this one out.

OK, so I'll start stepping on the clutch pedal before turning the tractor off.

How about the other "rules" such as don't switch into low range when going downhill or in fifth gear? Are these "myths"?

These are Myths. Like I said in the early post when you begin to coast, the planetary gear set starts to turn in the normal direction as if its in the high side. Would it doesnít engage when the tractor slows down, this is the first symptoms that something it starting to be amiss.

Hope this clears things up.
