:help:

Sure did John...takes 1 qt of 90W. That is the reason for giving it a test run...to get the oil circulating and into the bearings...and to check for leaks. I do not have an RJ to bolt it back into to check it out...and did not want to store it without running it for some time in all gears. I have a 5025 that I need to do the same thing to. :dunno:

Steve,

Attach a couple of pulleys and belts from the axles to the front wheels and have all-wheel-drive. :dunno:

Nice idea on the carrage bolt tool, that was the most time consuming part of my rebuild. A zip lock bag of crushed ice on it for a while helps get them out, as well. I couldn't get the last video to come up, but nice job. Your carrage bolt worked a hole lot better than the flat screwdriver that I heated and bent and attempted to temper, long story and process. :dunno:

Thanks Terry. As far as the last video...it seems that the Forumer thingy takes a little while to load sometimes. Try again and give it some time...it is just me running it through the gears and basically giving the transmission a chance to lube up properly and make sure it was running OK before I store it. Nice to be able to run it before you put it back into a horse though... I have taken them back apart a couple of times because something just did not seem right...saves a ton of time and headache. :dunno: Thanks

Not sure what happened to that last video link of running the transmission. It was about the time the old RS went down. Here it is again...thanks

I could watch the video, this time. Neat little set up you have there. You have done a good job on this post, good information for future rebuilds. I jumped right in on mine, with only a few people for support, had this been on here, at the time, it would have been a blessing. You've done good Steve. :dunno:

Really neat But if you dont mind I have something I do on everyone of these

I rebuild I take the axle shafts and put a new roll pin hole in the other end and

turn the axles end for end this gives your outer bearings and seals a fairly new

surface to run on. If this makes any sence to you. If I still had a milling machine

I would just cut new woodruff key slots and make new shafts but this works just

about as well. My old shafts have not been the very best on the outer end.

Here is a short video concerning the replacement differential that Wheel Horse sent out. It has the bolted on bull gear to the differential housing...you may not have one, but they are out there...I know of 2 now and it makes a difference how you put the pinions in...click on the picture.

Thanks for the video Steve, that's good to know.... I like the bearing and seal chart too, think I'll print a copy of that and put in in my notes. Well done!

this is going to be a useful thread for me and Ewan.

 

his RJ has been full of water for 25 years and all 6 bearings are seized. It's in a rough shape...

      This is a 1997 or newer transmission according to the casting number for the side case - I'm thinking its a 1997. Never used - never had oil in it. It had some rust in a few spots so I sandblasted it and painted it with some red paint I had. I didn't do the hubs.
      I decided to replace the seals and gasket since its been sitting for all these years.
       
      Local pickup only.

      Asking $800.00.

      I'm new to this site, and have a basic question.  I have a 1986 312A, with 865 hours on it on which the hydrostatic transmission fluid has never been changed.  Is it necessary/recommended to change the fluid at this point, or not?  What replacement fluid should I use?  Is the NAPA 1410 the best filter to use?  Thanks, Barry

      Hey everybody, I just picked up a 314-8 with around 800 hours on it. When trying to put it into low range from high, the lever wont budge. It almost feels stuck, I cant figure it out... Thanks In Advance

      I am currently towards the end of a 1276 restoration project, I just got everything back together and sent power to the transmission for the first time. Without the pump on and the gear in neutral, I can spin the axels by hand, one goes one way, the other, the other way, giving me indication that I don't have a differential problem. When I put power to it, everything appears to work as advertised, except when in gear I can stop the Axel from spinning with my hand, little to no resistance. I do have a bit of a rigging problem from worn linkage, but I can move the cam by hand to get it fully in gear. The tow gear in completely closed. Just flushed and filled with fluid. I have not changed the filter. 
       
      Any idea on why there seems to be no power in the axels??

      Will a c series transaxle fit in a b series? The dip stick tube looks to tall to fit under the fender. What modifications does it take to make this work?
