 Grease on cruise control electromagnet?

I was having trouble with the hydrostatic drive on my TC29D and the dealer came out and replaced the electromagnet that holds the hydro pedal in position when the cruise control is on. The mechanic admitted he doesn't have much experience with the cruise control. He put some grease between the magnet and the plate that it contacts with so it would "be less likely to stick". That didn't seem right to me. It seems like the grease will just attract dirt and cause it to stick when it shouldn't, plus it doesn't need lubricant since it's not supposed to move when it's engaged. Now I'm afraid the grease is going to cause it not to hold the pedal in position when the cruise is activated. You have to remove the lower part of the dash to see it. It's on the left side. If the tractor is not running, but the key is turned on, you can see it activate and hear it click when the cruise is turned on and off. I don't think there was any grease on there to start with (I wasn't there when the mechanic put the new one on), so I'm considering cleaning it off. What do some of you folks think?

Danny, I checked my TC25D and there is no grease. Dry as a bone. I would think, as you pointed out, it would have to be that way in order for the magnet to contact the plate properly with out slipping. By the way, what kind of trouble were you having with the hydro?

 Grease on cruise control electromagnet?

When I let up on the hydro pedal, the tractor took a long time to stop, even going uphill. Hitting the brakes would not stop it either, it would just squeal the brakes. The only way to stop it was to push on the back of the pedal with my heel to get it to go into neutral. When it went in for it's 50 hour service, they told me it just wasn't broken it yet. The tractor has over 100 hours on it now and it was getting worse every week. I was reading some posts about brake steering and everyone was saying that hitting the brakes would deactivate the cruise control, but mine didn't, the tractor would just keep going until I pushed the hydro pedal back with my heel. I called the dealer and he came out and replaced the electromagnet that holds the hydro pedal in position when the cruise control is on. He said it was staying on part way sometimes. Now when I have it on cruise control and touch the brakes, the cruise control turns off and the tractor rolls to a stop without having to touch the hydro pedal. I haven't had a chance to test it thoroughly yet, but so far it seems much better. It still wants to stick a little when the tractor is not warmed up, but once it's warmed up it's much better. At least now when I'm going uphill and let off the hydro pedal, it rolls to stop within a couple of seconds, rather than taking 5 seconds to finally stop.

Danny,

It seems to me someone else was having a similar problem with their Cruise and Hydro. I believe for some reason the electro magnet was not fully turning off due to a bad switch or something. Do a search and see if it give you anything.

you should clean the grease off. These tractors do not come with grease and should not have it on there. you are right it will attract dirt and cause this to operate poorly.
