Pulled the tranny down, It'* kinda fun to look in there. When I first bought this tractor, which was before I ever owned a car... 5yrs ago I think, It had a stuck brake. While fixing that i busted out a bolt, Which meant I had to open the tranny case as my first big mechanical project, Looking at it now, I sucked at it... I found a twig in the grease. I need to find a source here locally for shim washers and new bearings, I'm suprised this thing rolls.
I also found out through searching that this is really a rebadged MTD tractor. I'm a closet MTD lover. I have to call MTD Tech support Monday for the MTD model number, Then I can get a few new parts.
Found out the tranny is a Peerless by Tecuseh.
I got so annoyed running a cord out to my shed everyday I went ahead and put in the subpanel I've been getting around to doing.. 100A, Just enough to run my welder and compressor. Hooked up those 8' flouresent lights I've had hanging on the ceiling for months. Added a few plugs... Got nothing really done on the project.
