Easiest way - remove the deck, then physically lift the front of the tractor up so it sits on it's tail end. Most Craftsman models will sit like this unsupported. In this position, the engine will not leak oil, and you can see what you're doing.

Disconnect brake at transaxle. Apply parking brake (now disconnected, but it will also release belt tension).

Disconnect shift lever at trans.

Remove wheels.

Remove 6 bolts (4 through half shaft bearing supports, 2 through brackets at front of trans)

Remove trans & fix.

Trans bad?


Jack up the rear end using the frame. Put a person or cinder block on the seat, and put it in drive. Look for the shafts turning inside the wheels indicating broken keyways.

Can I replace the trans-axle through an access on the outside of the transmission? Or is it necessary to remove the transmission in order to change the trans-axle on a 1998 Camry?


the trans axle is the tranny...but if you meen the c.v axles you can take off the axle nut ..then remove the tie rod and lower ball joint and change the axle shaft with out tranny removal.. the tranny is called a transaxle on a front wheel drive car cause the differential and the tranny is one unit where as on rear drive car you have the tranny and then a rear diff connected bt a drive shaft where there is 3 seprate units

are the wheel / axle keys in the shafts ? make sure they are in the shafts with the wheels

provided you have correct tension on drive belt and belt is good and pulleys are all good , and spline on top of gear box input shaft is good not stipped ( as well as the pulley spline )check splines on shaft and pulley carefully

you should have movement of the variable displacement pump in the trans if all is good here ?

sounds like you may have a stuck bypass actuator in the box or the oil level has got low
and needs refilling and bleeding of air

make sure the lever is actually moving the swash plate for the transmission

if trans has a stuck or broken bypass - trans will ned opening up
let your local dealer take a look gearbox job on hydro units are not exactly easy
to fix unless you know what you are doing night pay to let local dealer repair it for you !!!!!!

cheers

No power to rear wheels on a 98 Forester w/ auto trans.It runs and drives fine without any noise, shifts through all gears smoothly but will not distribute any power to the rear wheels. Anyone know?


just looked up the 1998 Legacy, and the all wheel drive is a constant drive system, so if you don't have any drive to the rear, there is no electrical switches or solenoids to turn the rear drive on or off the system is all mechanical, so you need to take a good look at the drive shaft going to the rear wheels, Jack the car up all 4 wheels and install jack stands under all four lower a-frames then have some one start the car and put the trans. in gear and watch the rear drive shaft to see if it is turning, if it is not you will have to have the trans-axle checked out for a bad rear drive gear, if the drive shaft is turning but the rear wheels are not you will have to have the rear differential checked for a broken ring or pinion gear, but what you may find is that the drive shaft may have a broken u-joint and that you can fix yourself, pay very close attention to were the drive shaft attaches to the trans-axle and the differential.......i hope this helps let me know if there is any thing i can help you further with.

Troy-built 21" mower - self propel problem. From my research it seems like a manufacturer problem that was availiable thru a claim but I am the 2nd owner so I must fix myself. Its a model 834. I have...


do you have the complete model number from the data tag on the mower frame? there are two typical systems for these machines, both require the belt to be tight and not slipping at the crank shaft, and the pulley on the trans-axle to not be slipping on its shaft, the older style trans axle uses a belt tensioner system to tighten the belt and turn the pulley, i.e. if the pulley turns then the axle should too. this can be checked by hand with the axle and belt removed. the second system is a clutch style axle that has a constantly tight belt and uses a small cable controlled lever on the transmission housing to engage a drive clutch inside the transaxle, if moving the lever forward doesn't cause the axle to turn as the pulley and shaft are turning the clutch mechanism is usually toast. with both of these systems one should also note whether the axle is turning inside the wheels when they are on the ground, the over running clutch sprags inside the drive gears could be stuck causing the wheels to turn without resistance applied, but stall when in contact with the ground.

while inspecting the trans axle note any wobble or free play in the axles or input shaft, this will indicate a worn case or bearing, resulting in a slipping gear in the trans axle.

Our john deere sabre 17.542 hs ride on mower will not go forwards or backwards.We're looking for a diagram of the hydraulic gearbox/diff


If traction drive belt is turning you should check the input drive shaft on top of trans to see if it is turning as well,Traction drive belt is suspect but could be a stripped out input shaft pulley.Make sure the machine tow lever is not pulled out,rear of machine by tow hitch.Also pull rubber caps off of both axle ends to see if one the axles is turning free inside of rim,if so remove wheel and replace axle key.

Repair or replace trans axle pulley on a sears 917.276013. Pulley just spins on mandrel.


since the parts illustration doesn't show a woodruff key, i would guess that the input shaft of the transaxle has a flat area that matches up to a flat on the pulley - if it's just spinning, that would mean either the flat has been worn out, the center of the pulley has broken the weld, or the transaxle has something broken internally - the pulley is held on with a snap ring and thrust washer, remove those and the pulley should slide off the shaft - pulley part no. is 184787
