JD l120 moaning noise
I have a JD l120 about 10yrs old with 1065hrs on it. I use it for mowing as well as dragging a home-made chainlink drag on 4 acres of horse pasture. It has seen pretty hard use. A while back, only while pulling the drag, it began loosing pulling power and a "moaning" (the only way I can describe it) sound comes from the transmission (maybe?) and the machine slows to a crawl. After a rest it will do ok again for about 20/30 min. then repeats.
Also I just today replaced the blade spindles and can't seem to get the deck hooked to the lift mechanisim again. I unhooked it by removing the 4 pins from the lift. (2 on each side) one from the lifting part & one from a horizontal bar. If I get the lifting pins in I cant get the horizontal ones lined up for the bar to go on the pins.
Any ideas anyone with more mechanical expertise than me?? That would inclued everyone. :)
