If this is a new problem to the tractor then it may indicate that the clutch needs to be adjusted or replaced.

 4200 clutch

I have a 1999 4200 collar shift also and it has had the same problem since I first bought it. The gears are not sychronized and do have the tendacy to grind, especially if the tractor is moving. Having a wet clutch keeps the shaft turning longer and I have to wait longer befor changing gears. It does not grind as bad after getting hot, I guess the fluid has less viscosity then. I have had this tractor for 4 years and have had good service from it other than having to clean hyd screens and chang fluid and filters.

 4200 clutch

I had the same problem with my 4200 and the same model year. We also got the same line from the dealer about the collar shift grinding because it has no syncro rings. After getting a different dealer to do a computer search for issues on the 4200 we found it was a problem that John Deere was aware of. The fix was an upgraded/improved set of clutch discís, part number YZ80966 and about $150. I did the installation; it does require a special tool which may keep many people from doing it themselves. You still will need to come to a complete stop to change gears but what a huge improvement! I was about ready to sell the tractor prior to the new clutch. Iím now completely pleased with the 4200.
This is not to say that you make have adjustment or other problems.

 4200 clutch

I know you posted this back in May but was wondering what kind of special tool you needed to do the clutch job.

Thanks

 4200 clutch

The post you replied to is actually over 10 years old. Not sure he is still an active member. The special tools needed would be a special JD tool JDG1259. It is a special jig that bolts on the transmission housings used to measure clutch and housings to determine shim pack for proper clutch operation. You use it in conjunction with a depth micrometer. Other special tools would be jacks, stands, blocks, etc, to split the tractor.
