I have heard of choking a chicken , but a goat!The goat is home!
I tossed two batteries in it and hit it with a little starting fluid. It started up, and promptly ran to redline. The engine stop cable is broken. But thankfully I thought ahead and had the air filter assembly removed. I plopped my palm on it and choked it. I thought maybe it was the linkage for the throttle and tried to make sure it was all free. I fired it up again, and it did the same thing. I could keep it idled down a little bit by restricting the air flow, but it seems the throttle is stuck inside the engine?
Oh yeah, I see the fuel filter o-ring is leaking, some sensor thing that fuel runs through, and the oil filter housing as well. Driptroit is right huh?
Redline = oh crap that ain't rightDo you have any manuals?? I'd sure like to know what the redline is that you speak of...
Take the top off of the gov. housing and make sure the likkage is free where it goes into the head...
If that doesn't work remove the valve cover and check the movement there.
With the pinion joint already loose and the shaft loose (broken) from the tractor, I would have thought it would have overcame the "slip" in the driveshaft? Can that bearing lock up enough to cause what's happening?It can be a real B---- getting that shaft to "slide" forward through that bearing. For now just get it loose on both ends. Remove the u joint at the rear and see if the wheels turn.
Then work on the carrier bearing. The bearing is housed in a rubber holder and that is bolted in a metal housing. Be real careful of the rubber, it does not exist as a replacement.
You can removr the bearing housing bolts (2), disconnect the u-joint between the carrier and tractor, and get a little movement to work on it but not much.
I've done several and the answer is time, soak wait soak etc.etc.
Then a hammer and punch to break it loose from the rust and slid it off the shaft.
When you are ready to reasemble I'll give you the number of the replacement bearing.
The original is a double sealed bearing that is not available. The replacement is only a single seal. (No swiming)
Give it a try, as long as it fits in the housing. It's not a high speed bearing and has little load, so maybe it will work. Got to get it out first..
Wish I could help ya. Georgia is just to far to go.The first segment identifys the bearing dimentions. The second segment has the "options" of the bearing. I think that link I found will work.
If time allows tomorrow AM, I'll try to drop the driveshaft. I've got a lot going on this weekend though. Monday is wide open though!
By chance, do you recall the bolt size for the carrier bearing housing? So I only have to crawl under it once LOL.
