  • Chuckle Sound only in Reverse
  • My 8N started making a strange noise in reverse. Hard to describe but something like chucka chucka chucha chucka. It almost sounds like a PTO ORC when the blades have almost stopped. It only does it in reverse and worse when backing up a hill. All forward gears and shifting from forward to reverse are fine, no big clunks or other noises???

    I'm wondering if it's the ring gear coming loose?

  • In reverse with the PTO on? or off. Same noise?

  • Already got in enough trouble hugging the 2N hydro linkage into place, just once, really.

  • Possibly a brake shoe? Is there a chance you can narrow down where the noise is coming from?

  • It is definitely something in the rear housing, but it could be almost anything between the tires. I've not found a way to isolate it since it won't make the noise unless I'm driving in reverse.

  • Let me know what it is as I have 8N that has done that for over 40 years. Just curious as obviously I won't 'fix' it.
