 BX2230 Hydraulic Control Lever Problems

I bought a BX2230 in 9-04. The hydraulic control lever (HCL) worked perfectly for a while then started to not return to neutral automatically. It actually became quite jerky(difficult). My dealer called Kubota, they OK'd replacing some valve. It still acted up. I kept going to my dealer about it, they said Kubota said I'd "have to live with it". My dealer said I'm hard to please (next closest dealer is over 200 miles). Same day it stopped working all together. I took it in. The manager pointed out the external linkage between the lever and the casing that was jumping when I operated the HCL. I went home, sprayed dry graphite on the linkage, problem SOLVED. Any dealers out there?? It appears the problem has always been with the linkage. My dealer never noticed it. I called Kubota (Texas), they never mentioned it. Is the linkage under the 3yr warranty? My dealer didn't even offer to check into it. Meanwhile my transmission's been opened into, now I have to worry about the gaskets, they're not factory gaskets anymore. The pre-sale "friendliness" is now the post sale "stall". Anybody out there have this problem? Dealers? Mechanics?

 BX2230 Hydraulic Control Lever Problems

There are steps that always should be gone thru with every problem. Lubrication is the first and least expensive fix for many problems that we find. I can't say that it is always the first thing done! Lubrication of all components should have been done at assembly time and after the unit is delivered it is the owners responsibility. Everyone does it differently and timing is more per use and working conditions as to when it might be needed.
