    Yesterday I was driving my dads JD and something sounded like it went to hell in a hand basket. The thing is it runs fine. I thought a belt broke and hung up and ws whipping the end around slapping everything making a loud noise. It was so loud I lost me hearing for like 15min. :eek: It sounded like a helicopter crashing into a metal pole barn. It was LOUD. No smoke or anything and it seems to run fine. I heard a little noise after that for a few seconds and that was it.

    Its a JD 5500N, it has a 4cyl turbo diesel. Im kinda scared to run it. Anyone know what could have caused this?

    Hi Michaeljp86
    You should check the turbo you may of lost a blade. Don't run until you now what is the problem.

    Never did find out what that noise was. I dont remember exactly when it happened but some time around then one of the cast iron fingers that press on the pressure plate broke off. That may of had something to do with it.
