One of the guys had TT do a "K51 charge pump upgrade" to a t40/k46. My LT166 has the K51 and the tranny is much more 'positive' [ for the lack of a better word ] than the k46 derivatives I have.

OK....so...I had the case all back together, went out this morning to start the next step of filling the case and realized I had not put the filter in...not that I put the old one back vs the new one..I didn't put it in at all. I was ****** that I had to take it apart and re-seal it and wait another day.....but it was a good thing it happened because I realized I had put one of the brake pads back in backwards....so I resealed it, and waiting until tomorrow to fill and re-install.

More to come.

Anyone have advice on how to pull the drain plug for this case? I tried channel locks like it stated in another thread, but that only seemed to tear the top of the plug....

Hey guys....I got this thing licked I think! I was able to refill the case...reinstall it, followed the purge procedure on the Tuff Torq site. The wheels did not move for a minute or two (I could feel the rage building) then all of the sudden, the wheels took off in both forward and reverse. Played with it for a few minutes then lowered it to the ground and tested her out. She took off like a bat out of **** in forward and reverse.

Thank you to everyone on this site with all the great information and advice. This saved me a couple hundred bucks and I feel like I got my old Deere back again!

Glad to hear that your rebuild was sucessful!

A tip for future reference:

As far as the fill cap/drain plug removal goes, use a 1.5" putty knife. With a small hammer, gently tap in the putty knife between the cap and the case, making sure you are under the thin rubber seal between the cap and the case. It will only go in app. 1/8". Repeat this all the way around the cap, and it should come off undamaged. It sounds like it all turned out fine, but channel locks are a bit much for a plastic cap.

I used channel locks as that was what was suggested on one of the links in a previous post here....after taking it out, the putty knife would have worked much better. I damaged the rubber at the top of the plug a bit, but I think it willl be fine.
