Have any of you guys ever lost some of your ground speed after having a new hydro motor installed? In second it max's out at about 5 to 5.5 where it used to go 6.5. Only goes 14.5 down the road used to run 17.5. Tried the cable adjustment trick and gained some. Those are the posted speeds after doing the adjustment. I moved the cablt to the hole closest to the pump and now it just seems like there is a big dead spot on the top end of handle movement.

Tom we only replaced the motor and yes it is a jd re-man. The local dealer did it. Have talked to them and everything should be right. Just wondering if this is normal. We had a stalling issue that prompted the change. Got lucky and replaced the cheaper of the 2 ie the motor. We can now start out in 3rd at idle. It's just annoying sometimes in dryland corn where we could be carrying more speed and can't.

We had the same thing happen this summer. We changed the pump and motor both. We lost 2 miles an hour in 3rd gear. The dealers I talked to could not explain why. Both units where JD re-mans.

Could # 18 have been mounted with the angle headed the wrong way? Just something to check. Could the cable be slipping in another bracket somewhere?

Tom it's running in the inside hole right now. All it seemed to do was make the action of the handle react faster. There a dead spot at the upper end of handle movement that doesn't seem to do anything for speed. Have it adjusted right now that it creeps forward in the neutal postion to gain a little speed.

Does #16 fit on a splined shaft? If it does, move it one spline to speed up going forward. You will lose some reverse speed
