Been there learned that. Gaining experience wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so expensive. I swear that three quarters of everything I learned was because I learned what NOT to do. Knowledge is knowledge though, I guess.Had a bent pushrod. Bought a new and tried to adjust the valves and broke the adjuster nut. Still learning.
Wow~! Thanks for the heads up. I haven't done much maintenance here, but certainly due. Thanks for the photos and the heads up on that O-Ring. I'll have that info tucked away now. As I have two 5000's their bushings aren't too far from the 6000, let us know where you find them....When I first changed the oil and filter in the GT6000 transaxle, I mistakenly opened up the bottom cover of the geroto
Well, today I finally replaced it. 5 minute job when you actually have the replacement o-ring
I also took some measurements of the front axle bushings, which are plastic. I may try and replace them with bronze bushings at some point.
Sounds like a wild ride, Good luck on the disc.Went for an exciting ride yesterday down a 30% slope street by my house, no brakes. 917.273090 22 HP garden tractor.
So ordered new brake pads last night, be here in a couple days. So today I tear into it, brake pads are fine. However the disc teeth are gone where it mounts on transmission. OK, order a new disc....well maybe not. Nobody has one, discontinued in 2016 as near as I can tell. So tomorrow I am making a trip to a lawn mower bone yard about 30 miles away and hope I can find a used one.
