 Kioti pto problem

Junior and Roger thanks for your input.It was the shifting fork,just broke into.Dealer said it had never happened in 5 yrs of selling Kiotis but while mine was there another one came in for same thing.The shifting fork looked cheaply made to me.Cast from what i'd call pot metal.Was big job to get to it.Wheels,fenders,seat all had to come off.Guess thats how dealer justified $195 labor.Total bill was $306 including extra hydraulic filter to be put on in 15 hrs.$23 for that was pretty salty but it works fine now and didn't take too long to get fixed.Any place to buy Kioti filters etc discounted?Thanks again for advice.Dave

 Kioti pto problem

Glad it was so easy! Yep, it was about what Junior and I thought.....something in the selection mechanism. Not a big problem, and cheap and easy to fix. Neither of us would have picked a broken shifting fork as the problem. Shifting forks are good steel - normally cast to rough shape and then hammer forged and machined to finish. I'm thinking that I've seen some that were made of a silicon bronze....but can't remember which transmission for sure. They take a lot of stress, so I doubt that pot metal will fill the bill. If you think that the part is suspect` then bestbe gentle with the lever. In the meanwhile, you might drop a spare one off at a machine shop and ask about having it copied in steel. If it is ascommon a problem as you seem to be seeing, then you might just make a buck or two while providiing a service to other owners... A couple of things to help out here: 1. You got a good deal on the cost of replacing that fork. The labor was about right, maybe on the less-expensive side. 2. Is this a high-pressure hydraulic filter? If so, you aren't going to save much money by going to a different brand. Pressure side filtersare not cheap. Besides,how would you know that another brand of filter has anything like the same operating characteristics? How is the tractor working now? Hope you are enjoying it. You came out pretty good on this deal....
