couple of issues w/ grasshopper 721D

Discussion in 'Mechanic and Repair' started by ga sportsman, Jun 23, 2013.

  1. This just started today.....
    battery light is on and the volt meter shows 11ish volts w/ blades not in gear and 11.5ish w/ them engaged. Is this a bad alternator or battery or what? Still runs and engages tho. It is the 3 cylinder Kubota diesel engine.

    Other problem is a hydro fluid leak from the right pump. It is originating out towards the wheel but I haven't taken the wheel off to see exactly where? Is there a seal out there is this gonna call for a new pump? I REALLY don't need it to need a new pump. If so is there a good place online to get a replacement pump?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    With the low voltage, check the charge (regulator) fuse for corrosion or poor contact. It is the one on the botton right side of the fuse box.

    Check all the wiring starting at the battery.

    You can get seal kit for pumps, on the charging could be relay, connection, or alternator
