hydrostatic transmission husqvarna 1542
Hi, I bought this unit with 500hrs on clock, I mow 2.5 acres, the first time didn't miss a beat, yesterday however after I got it back home I noticed what I can only describe like a " grinding of gears sound " and I had no forward or reverse. After a little play around I took the back plate off to gain access to the trannie, there seemed to be a lot of grass and debris that I didn't clean away when I bought it. I sprayed a bit of wd40 and manually manipulated what looks like a strut or shock absorber. It seemed to run after that. Is there something more sinister lurking or is this the best approach to fixing it..
