It's hard to tell from a picture, but if you can feel the groove with your nail it's a sign of wear, now the real question is, it is out of spec?
That is something I can not tell.
What pics? Do they include install instructions when you ordered the parts or did you have a repair manual / book you purchased separately?... So I ordered the recommended parts which included a new filter, cylinder block motor, cylinder block pump, and a tube of sealant at a cost of $152.57 + tax and shipping. Also purchased 2 quarts of Castrol Syntec 5W50 oil for $14.40.
My buddy and I dropped the transmission again, cracked open the case and replaced the parts indicated in the pics, put her back together and installed, did the purging procedure and I swear this tractor now runs better than it did up the steepest of my back yard inclines like they were not even there .
If you go to the Tuff Torq site, they have diagrams of the transmission breakdown and parts so I printed it out and went by that. There were no instructions with the parts. Actually it was stladrill who advised me what particular parts I needed to replace using the diagram .What pics? Do they include install instructions when you ordered the parts or did you have a repair manual / book you purchased separately?
Yes they are.Do you know if they are interchangeable on a X300 if you wanted to upgrade?
