Diesel cub cadet torque converter doesn't shift


Recommended Posts

Diesel cub cadet torque converter doesn't shift.  torque converter is stuck in "low".  also doesn't disengage properly at idle.

visual inspect reveals no obvious problem.  looking for advice on troubleshooting.

thx to anyone taking the time to offer advice.

Okay, sounds like your clutch(pulley) isn't disengaging.

Torque converters have centrifugal weights inside them, and the faster the crankshaft spins, the weights sling out and push the moveable pulley, which tightens up the belt, it sounds like your weights or spring, isn't fully releasing.

Usually you have to take it apart, and clean it, and lube it. Or buy a new one.
