How to replace Hydrostatic fan?

941 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  pylek
Can anyone tell me how to properly loosen the nut on top of a Hydo tranny on a Craftsman LT1000? I need to replace the fan blade on top of the drive pulley. Is it RH or LH thread? The tranny is off of the tractor so no belt tension is present.

Hello TexP51. That is RH thread. Should be 1/2-20 NF. On mine, I used an impact gun to remove the nut, and a strap wrench to hold the pulley to torque the nut. It was a *****, but I got it torqued. I suppose you could use and impact to torque the nut, just be carefull of over torquing.
