Gave my 416 Onan a good workout yesterday. My next door neighbor has been in poor health and unable to do anything for the past 4-5 weeks so his field and lot behind and beside me was very tall and thick. I went over and cut them yesterday-had to go fairly slow in some spots, but really no problem. Later, our neighbor behind me came over and said he couldn't believe I was able to cut that so easily-he cut a section of the field that is next to his place with his new Dixie Chopper and apparently it didn't like it at all. He said he wished he still had his Wheel Horse (he traded it 15-20 years ago and hasn't been happy with anything else since)

Working on a 1959 Wheel Horse RJ transmission that sat in the mud for several years!  Shifts in all gears but  opening the case tomorrow to see the real story!

 

A $20 dollar gamble but I am game for it!

I'm no expert, but I think you may need a new axle there!    :ychain:       Looking forward to more :text-coolphotos:.

Big_Red_Fred:   I don't want you worrying about my knees!   I have some good transmission level seats.

 

 

It's my gears and axles that may need some assistance!

Summary of today's Wheel Horse  work:

 

Well hard to believe this but  no real fluid in the 59 RJ transmission (January 5, 1959 on case)  but lots of rust debris and no major gear issues (one chipped tooth on two spider gears -all  with 11 teeth) and two of the lower/center  hoobie doobies on the side of the case broken off  (where the side plates bolt on the case).     Of course both axles were shot to pieces as the hub ends where completely rusted through.   Amazing but other than tha most gears were ok, but as Stevesaurus always says you don't know u ntil you open it up what you have.   This appears to be the older style  brake shaft gear (eight teeth) and the older style differential. 

 

Side panels were pretty good shape although we broke the two  brake pad bolts off on the side tab.   And although most bearings and oil seals will need repalced  it is amazing that the two brass bushings in the axle tubes and in the differential have little  wear exhibited .

 

All in all  more than worth the $20 investment for the transmission.  

 

I do have other parts can cases to work with and plan on getting two good RJ transmissions  rebuilt out of the gear stocks I have now.  And maybe one Suburban rebuild too!

I worked on the Work Horse. Major electrical melt down. The owner put a wire jumper in place of the fuse.
