3 SPEED #5025 UNI-DRIVE REBUILD

24 posts in this topic

My intent here is to show lots of pictures so if anyone is rebuilding one of these or some of the others...you can do it without fear and I am adding some very helpful information. I had a post that lead up to this that has some information in it also, and while it overlaps, I wanted to do the rebuild separate. This post is meant to be used with the manual...the pictures help explain better then the pictures in the manual.

Now I want to share what I learned as I rebuild this...I realize that some have done this, but this was my first time (transmission virgin) and I know I am not the last one to do this. If I can help or make this easier, then I have given back a little from all the help I have received from this site. :thumbs:

This is a shot showing gear placement in the left side of the case. Notice the bevel of the reverse gear (front right). The left side is the shallow side of the transmission halves.

These are the parts of the differential..the 2 casings on the outside, the 2 axles, the differential bull gear, the 4 posts and the pinions that go on these, and the bolts and nuts that hold it all together.
702transmission011-1.jpg

I can't get enough looks at the gears before I tear it apart...next 2 pictures are for future reference.

I found a good assortment of 3/8 and 1/2 sockets that made fair to good arbors for pounding out and tapping in most of the bearings and seals.
702transmission015.jpg

These are the bearings and seals you need to do the R&R. You can get all the stuff from Toro or the site that Jason gave in the related post. One note...the Toro#1303 seal is discontinued. This is called a cup seal, because it has a cup shape. I replaced it with a kind of match (SKF #7410) same dimensions but more like a regular oil seal...it will work. This place used to be Berry Bearings in Elgin...now it is "Motion Industries"...the web site MotionMRO.com...they can match up any bearing or seal. Excellent info. and prices were very good.
702transmission017.jpg

Shot of the bearings and seals removed, cleaned and sanded. Used Valspar Restoration series...I like the red match with my 702 and I like the hardness of the paint.
702transmission018.jpg

Showing bearings and seals installed...notice (arbors on right).
702transmission020.jpg
702transmission021.jpg

Putting differential back together...show axle in place with bolts in place.
702transmission022.jpg

Added pinion posts and in 2nd picture...added pinions (alternating one up and one down).
702transmission023.jpg
702transmission025.jpg

Added Bull Gear
702transmission026.jpg

Added other axle and case and bolted together. At this point, make sure you can rotate the axles...they should rotate in opposite directions.
702transmission027.jpg

Placing input shaft and gear (one piece) and the reverse idler shaft.
702transmission028.jpg

Installed the 2nd & high shift rail and fork. (one on the left). Also installed both ball bearings, spring and stop pin, and low & reverse shift rail. The 2 sliding gears were then placed...the grooves face each other and the smaller gear goes on the bottom.
I had a pencil magnet that I used to hold the 2nd ball bearing, while I took an Allen wrench through the hole to hold the bearing out of the way while I placed the low and reverse shift rail. the picture also shows the reverse idler and brake shaft in place.

702transmission030.jpg

Another view showing forks and gears.
702transmission031.jpg

Showing reverse idler (bevel up...I hope) in front. Splined shaft installed through the shift fork sliding gears. The cluster gear is then installed( 2 wood-ruff keys here...one on each end). Also, the differential and axles are placed (note the nuts are facing up).
702transmission032.jpg

different angle
702transmission033.jpg

yet one more angle
702transmission035.jpg

Put together..old 5 gal wood create works great as a work bench (all shafts fit through and keep work level). Used a hard rubber hammer to tap halves together.
No leaks when I filled with 90wt gear oil...approx 1 1/2 qts. Checked shifting and started to put the 702 back together today. A final picture or a video tomorrow (hope).

I want to thank Rickv1957 Fan, MikeRJ, Buckrancher,Suburban550,IndyWH Smokin'Joe, the Helmett and Charlie for all their help and advice...a huge thank you guys. :wh::wh::thumbs:

Looks great. How much did you pay for all of the bearings together? You bought the 1533 bearings from toro? They are around $70 now.

What is Jason's site? I am interested because my bearing distributers prices have gone through the roof. I'm getting tired paying $12 for a bearing I can slip over my little finger!

Charlie and everyone else...this is Jason's site...

http://www.rcpw.com/search?quest=1533&search=Search

The old berry bearings in Elgin is now Motion Industries

e-mail....MotionMRO.com They can match any bearing(I am told) or seal if you give them the O.D. I.D. and height of the bearing or seal. The guy behind the counter is a guy I have known since the late 60's and the service station days. He is still excellent and very helpful. If you end up calling him, you can mention my name, will not lower the price though. He is the kind of guy that...if you are an a-hole...but if you are serious, he will bend over backwards. When I told him that only Toro made the #1533 bearing and had to get it from them...he looked at me and rolled his eyes. I did not have the I.D. O.D. and height at the time to check it out. If someone has those measurements, I will go back and see if he can match it up. Well worth the time. :omg:

Sorry Charlie...(remember that from a tuna commercial), I don't know how you can do the trans rebuild for $150 with core deposit. I spent a little more then that.

House prices may have come down, wages are lower, but machined parts are not cheap. :omg:

Way to go Steve,

just a quick ? about the orange coloration. Is this just surface rust on the gears, shafts, etc, or is it residue from old water / oil contanimation ?

I'm assuming if you could have just wiped it off, it would have been.

Great Job :omg:

The transmission is working fantastic...after witnessing the water damage in a trans...I would tear down every trans suspected of having water or sledge in it. Way to easy and the cost of a $5.00 gasket and piece of mind, versus the cost of bearings...up to $300.00 and going up. I have 3 more horses that were stored with this one...guess what I will be doing in the next few months?

:D

Anyway...a couple of shots of the horse recipient of the rebuild...

After doing all that cleaning and painting.....you can't see it...but I know it is there and feel good about it. :D

Here is a very short video...because how many times can you go back and forth :D

but notice how easy this starts after sitting since the end of December. Without a doubt...the easiest starting engine I have ever seen. :D:omg:

I've been riding this around the block for the last couple of days...working it in so to speak...needs a cup holder. :D

I had one of the older 3-part transaxles. It had water damage and I bought a new one on eBay for $51.00 and $46.00 to ship. I had to switch the side cover because the brake band opened when the clutch/brake pedal was pressed. :omg: I tried it yesterday and it works great. :D

It looks like I am going to have to do the same thing, and do a complete rebuild on my 6 speed trans in my Raider 12. it has ran great for 38 years and i think i have an axel clip falling apart. as long as i have it apart i am going to relace all the bearing & seals.

Does anyone have the crossover numbers to listed parts with a good suppier?

The repair manual shows my trans. is a 5073 1972 model

never been inside a trans before, looks like it can be done.

they are not hard to take apart. Outting it back together is another story. Just remember to take out the shifter before lifting off the top half :thumbs:

    • 416H Transmission Oil Question
      By toadmiller
      Good Afternoon... I need to change the transmission oil in my 1994 416H. Hoping to find some direction on two questions:
       
      1. Where can I obtain a filter for the transmission oil? Are there NAPA match ups or do I need to order from another location?
      2. The manual specifies 10W-40 to be used in the transmission. Do you reccommedn somnething differemnt?
       
      Thanks in advance for the help!
    • unidrive newbie
      By DownHome
      So be nice to me but I am working on my 1st WH. 855 I got everything running and I'm trying to figure out the transmission. I feel like I'm constantly grinding gears. I'm new to these tractors so I have no experience but I'm expecting this to not be very challenging. Maybe it's just getting used to the shifting?  Or is this an indication that I have a bigger problem? Seems like sometimes it's not an issue but others it's grinding back at me. Any advice?
    • Stuck Head stud problems
      By BenTheWheelHorseMan
      I have a Kohler k241 that I recently acquired. When I bought it I was told that it was rebuilt and bored .030 over. It came without head bolt and a head gasket, but there were 2 head studs in it. One came out relatively easily, but the other is pretty well stuck. I have tried penetrating oil and I do not want to heat it because it is right next to the exhaust valve. Would it be a big deal to just put a spacer on top of the place where the bolt head would go and just put a nut on it? Thanks
    • 314-8 Tranny problem
      By PtJudeRI
      Hi all, my first post here. I bought a 314-8 this past fall, with a mower deck and snowblower. All was fine, other than a sticky first gear. I replaced oil, new fuel filter and gas line on the tractor, and also new belt on the snowblower. First snowfall it worked well, but ran a little rough. This past week, I got one swipe of the driveway done, and when shifting from reverse to 2 ( couldn't get it to shift into 1 and stay) the Tranny wouldn't engage, leaving me stuck.  No reverse, no forward. Engine still running fine, drive belt seems in good order. 
       
      I pulled the shifter today, which is intact and looks fine. Trans fluid looks a bit low, and milky, so I think some water got in there. The gears seem to shift smooth, but the tractor just won't engage.  I called the guy I bought it from, who assured me all was in good order, as I can't seem to find someone to work on the unit here in RI.  Any thoughts???  I'm OK mechanically, but not a whiz, and not set up to pull and rebuild a transmission. 
    • Complete Pedal Kits for Hydrostatic Wheelhorse / Toro Tractors
      By mattd860
      I have developed a kit that allows a Wheel Horse / Toro hydrostatic tractor to be operated by a pedal on the right side of the tractor. The original forward/reverse lever can be retained or removed. The kit includes everything needed to install the pedal kit and installation is simple with the help of a downloadable installation manual. Additionally, only one (1) 1/4" hole will need to be drilled which can be done by a hand drill. No other drilling or cutting will be necessary. Any tractor with this kit can be converted back to stock without any visible evidence that kit was installed. However, you'll never want to do that

      The kit operates very simply and similar to modern tractors. When the pedal is pushed forwards the tractor will move forwards. When the reverse pedal is pressed downwards, the tractor will moved in reverse. If the operator takes his foot of the pedal at any time, the pedal will automatically center itself and the hydrostatic transmission will return to neutral (stop). This enables the operator to use both hands on the steering wheel or one hand on the wheel and the other operating an attachment like a snow blower, plow, etc.

      The foot pedal is custom cast in Aluminum, uses brass bushings to minimize wear, and it closely matches the OEM Wheel Horse BRAKE pedal commonly found on 8-speed manual transmission tractors. Modifications were done to the pedal to add the reverse pedal and adapt the pedal to the rest of the kit. For the most part, the pedal looks like it was designed and manufactured by Wheel Horse / Toro. Additionally, a grease fitting has been adapted to the pedal to further minimize wear and tear and if the brass bushings ever wear out they are fully replaceable without having to buy a whole new pedal. 

      The pedal kit fits the following series tractors with Eaton hydrostatic transmissions: C-1X5, 300, 400, 500. 
       
      My kit can be adapted to older hydrostatic tractors with the Sundstrand transmission, however, you will need to find an updated hydro cam commonly found on ebay. Message me for more information. 
       
      Here is a link where you can download the installation manual: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/99750546/Wheel%20Horse%20Hydro%20Foot%20Pedal%20Instructions%20V3.pdf
       
      I am selling these kits for $250 shipped to anywhere in the United States. I offer multi order discounts as well. I will also sell to other countries for additional shipping charges to be determined.
       
      If anyone has any questions please feel free to PM me or post your question here and I will be glad to help. Or you can email me at mattdarling02@hotmail.com.

      Thanks!
       
       
      Below are pictures of the complete kit and the pedal installed on the tractor. Some modifications have been made since these pictures were taken. For example, the reverse pedal is now cast in aluminum instead of the steel pedal shown below.
