Aloha All I brought the 4000 home after some considerable pasture mowing. I have a noticeable ticking sound when the clutch is engaged either in the bell housing area or in the transmission.When the clutch is disengaged of course no ticking sound. I can hear the sound only when the engine is idling. Sometimes I hear a winding sound in the clutch area. Help Mahalo Mike

Aloha RodInNs The ticking sound only occurs when the clutch is engaged transmitting power. When the clutch pedal is disengaged no ticking sound. Mahalo Mike

When you talk about the clutch being engaged... are you meaning that the pedal is depressed? I would tend to think of clutch engagement in literal terms in that engaged means it's transmitting power...
If the noise occurs when the pedal is depressed... I'd say you have a problem with either the release bearing, clutch fingers or the pilot bearing. If you're splitting it... it might be just as well to replace all of the above depending on how things look. That said.... if the pilot bearing is going bad... you don't want to wait as it could weld itself to the input shaft and that won't be pretty.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
