 Gator 6x4 Diff lock Slipping

Hey does anyone know if the Diff Lock can be adjusted cause it used to only slip and click in reverse but lately its doing it in forward as well and sometimes that diff is all you need to get off the ice or trough the snow.

thanks in advance

 Gator 6x4 Diff lock Slipping

The differential lock is easy to adjust, but first make sure it is not internally stripped.

Make sure it is fully engaging, and if it is and still ratcheting, then the clutch locking dogs are shot. To inspect them the left axle housing has to be removed and the sliding clutch and left axle shaft has to be slid out of the housing. On the axle is the sliding engagement lock, and then the corresponding dogs are on the differential carrier itself. Generally, the sliding clutch assembly strips.

You can go to John Deere's website and pop up a diagram of the parts involved, and get an idea of what is involved.

The Kawasaki website also has parts diagrams, but under the Mule designation. The transaxle is built by Kawasaki.

Thanks OregonPharmer, Is there a way to tell if its adjusted correctly without pulling the unit apart?
