Re: LA130 with Dead Trans
I got the Trans back in yesterday and I can't tell any difference. I only ran it about 5 minutes to be sure it was purged of air. When I was putting it back in I did notice that the drive belt was not very tight. I took the plate of that holds the idlers and cleaned and lubed the pivot point. The belt seems to be a little tighter now but from other post I've read that there is a stronger spring that can be put on it. I'm going to sharpen the blades this morning and take it back to him, if the trans last long enough for him to mow his yard I'll take the deck back off and weld up the broken places. Seems like I've been working on friends and family stuff for a month now.
