tranny life expectancy!

Recommended Posts

Hey again guys. My 753 tractor has an hour meter installed on it. (Very neatly done.) It says it now has 1739 hours on it. I would say it might have a little more than that if its not original which I'm guessing its not? The meter does appear old though. How long can a trans last in a 753. (Approximately) I know you can't tell me exactly but it doesn't jump out of gear going up or down hill. Just wondering. Thanks guys, I appreciate it,

Zane

The one I just refurbished for my 310 [Out of a 416] had over 3000 hours on the meter. I changed a bearing and seals and gasket and had an axle worked on. Some of the gears showed wear but it is still working. I think if you keep the oil changed and refrain from grinding gears, they wll go a long long time.

Like Wishin said... they will last a long, long time, AS long as your not grinding gears in it. Your tractor was build in 1963 in the USA , Not like the box store ones today that are stamped steel & plastic. If you do routine maintenance to it,  your good         :handgestures-thumbupright:

My little tractor gets babied I'll tell you that Haha! She grades the gravel drive but I always come to a complete stop before a change gears and its usually always run at idle speed. It will grind into the first gear I put it in upon initial start up but that's it. And its not a bad grind at that. It does have the correct amount of 85-90 wt oil in her as well.

      Hello all - I have a 1990 312-8 that recently started being a pain to shift, and eventually it stopped shifting into 1st and reverse and was hard to get into 2nd and 3rd. After looking at some posts on here I discovered the possibility that a loose shifter could cause this problem. My shifter definitely had a lot of play in it so I proceeded to pull the seat, rear plate and shift plate off the tractor so I could get to the area where the shifter goes into the transmission. I removed the shifter, reseated it and got the dog head screw lined up in the shifter donut and was hoping that would fix the issue, but after getting it all reassembled and trying to shift even into 2nd or 3rd the shifter, while not as sloppy, now just turns side to side - taking it back out and inspecting the shifter I have discovered that the pin which holds the donut in place on the shifter has sheered and the donut is now able to free spin on the shaft. Not too much of a problem as I plan on just pressing the old pin out and replacing, however I am concerned that the ball on the end of the shifter seems to be getting pretty flattened off on the left and right sides of the ball. I tried looking up a replacement on Toro and several other parts websites but I can't find one anywhere - I can get the boot, everyone has those, but no shifter. My question is, does anyone know where I might be able to find a new shifter and more important, is a little flattening on the ball anything to worry about? 
       
      Also, with the shifter out, looking down the hole my transmission looks like it's full of mud! Definitely doesn't look like the gear oil I put in it - anyone know what could be causing the transmission gear oil to be sludging up like that?

      Hello everyone!
      I recently inherited my grandpa's 
      Wheel Horse 753. I remember it running before his health declined about 15 years ago. My intentions are just to get it running and do a mild restoration, it'll stay in the family.
       
      Without further ado, here it is!
      Having a hard time with pictures due to no phone service at my shop. I'll be sure to update soon.
