I have a 1992 Simplicity GTH 20 . The rear PTO bearing was making a noise so upon dissasembly i noticed a piece of the transmission where the the bolts go through the rear PTO carrier bracket and into the transmission a piece on the trans just fell right off. My question is - Is there pressure in the rear Transmission? I don't want to spend alot of money on this so can i just fill the hole with RTV gasket maker type material or should i use JB Weld to fill the hole? i just want to keep the fluid from coming out for now.

I'd clean the area with brake kleen, let it dry thoroughly, then smear a liberal amount of JB weld on the part and the case and press it back together. Just don't let it blob into the case. Let it cure good.

I don't think you will want to rely upon that threaded part to hold much force. It looks like one of three attachment points and if those are under much stress, the JB Weld may not have enough grip to stand up to it. That could lead to the other two failing the same way.

I do not believe that the trans case contains pressurized oil, it being mostly a reservoir of oil, so the JB Weld will likely plug the hole OK.

Others may have different or additional thoughts.
Thanks for your response! What i think happened is the bolts that go through the carrier bracket might have got loose from the Tiller jumping up and down thus causing the break in the trans. Those holes in the bracket have an oblong shape allowing for PTO shaft adjustment. I think it's a poor design. I wonder if i could just get shorter bolts and not have any bolts going into the trans housing? Maybe tack weld the bolts going through the carrier cross member braket so they don't come loose.

I spoke with the guys that sell weling equipment and they did't think i could weld that type of material. I have heard of this type of metal referred to as " White Metal". I think it's to close to the other half of the Trans and gasket to mess with. Not sure...

Thanks for the Welcome. Sorry if my post displayed large pics instead of thumbnails. I tried to use the "Insert Image" button then i attatched and uploaded . Then it looked like i had the option to display thumbnail or full pic. I pressed the button for "Thumbnail all" but it didn't post the way i wanted it to. Then i couldn't find the "Preview" button so i gave up after fighting it for a half hour and just clicked post.
