And another....just picked up 36" Stander with 105 hours wanted to get info...Serial # 24740...

This unit when you let go of controls sometimes it sticks and turns to the left. my shop said its an internal hydro problem not the linkage or controls. Said it would be a $4-500 job to fix. Also said to just get used to it.

Any info would be great!

Ok I just did the serial number lookup. it says this mower was built in april 2004, invoiced in april 2012? Could that be wrong? The guy I bought it from says it was a 2010 or 2011 model year. The engine s/n on the lookup is FH451VA95683 but on the machine it is FH451VA95679. Wonder whats going on. I guess I got hosed on the deal.

Mark,

The decals can be purchased thru a dealer the ones you listed have MSRP's between $6 - $10. Serial 24740 was built in April of 2004 but did not sell till 2012 he may have been told it was a 2011 or 2012 when he bought it but that was not correct. It's considered the second version of the small Stander because it has the Hydro Gear pumps that have a return to neutral system on the pump, prior to that he had hoops and springs that returned the system. Unhook the control rods from the control levers to make sure that the levers move freely if they do then it is likely in the pumps, if not the levers need to be lubed. Usually the pumps will only stick when the mower is running and will move freely when the mower is shut off, try adding some Amsoil Slip Lock to the hydro system (usually one bottle is enough), it is a limited slip differential additive. It was a very random issue with some 10cc pumps years ago but the Amsoil took care of most of the units. Not sure why the engine would not still be the original with only 100 hours on the mower it's unusual that the serials are so close, thought maybe two mowers had their build info swapped but I don't find the 95679 on any mower we built.

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

Thanks for getting back to me. How would I go about adding the amsoil to hydro? Is there a step by step somewhere? I've never worked on hydro pumps before.

The engine thing is weird. But the machine as a whole is like new mechanically and visually other then the hydro sticking.

Thanks

Mark,

On the dash you should see a 3" black plug in the center of the panel, pop out the plug and you will see the hydro cap on the top of the hydro tank. This is the fill and the vent on the old style tanks, just remove the cap and add the Amsoil. The fill level normally is 6.25" from the bottom of the tank, no worry if the level is higher with the addition of the Amsoil.

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

OK so I added the amsoil and ran the machine for about 10 minutes going forwards and backwards etc and really didn't notice any improvement. Should I add another 4oz? or does the slip lock need more time to work its magic?

Thanks

Mark
