I have looked all over but still no luck. I did find one on EBay for $750 which is totally out of the Question! I wonder if any other trans axle could be retrofitted in its place.Ahh haa another one
This is the same thing that has happened with mine. I beleive what has happened here, and with mine is that the Hi / Lo was not fully engage on one side or the other. it seems that the the forks inside get looses or worn.
My housings are also cracked pretty good, and they are not available. I also had several geras with broken teeth, have you had any luck finding a transaxle.
I understand that the 717-1161 is an old number and that th e new number is 753-0598. Other than that they appear rarer than hens teeth.
Sorry to bogart your thread, but does anyone have one of these?
yeah I'm not sure about the retro fit, I have somewhat ried, I had a guy tell me that a 618 series would work. I ended up buying one, and it fits under the tractor however nothing lines up after that, the mounts don;t work, the brake is on the oppoite side of the pedal and so on, I just didn;t feel very confident even after it was underneath that it would move ever agin thus I haulted and went back to lookingI have looked all over but still no luck.
