    RJ gas tank help

    There is a tank off a suburban on ebay which I believe is the same as an RJ. Ive seen them come up on ebay once in a while. Good Luck

    RJ-58 Transmission gears and side cover

    I'm looking for an RJ-58 transmission mushroom gear and bull gear matching set OR either an 11 tooth mushroom gear or and old style bull gear. I have an 8 tooth and a newer style bullgear now. also a left side tranny cover for an RJ-58. Let me know what you have and price. Thanks
  9. Here are the pics. These are all 4 of my RJs. 2 with Kohler, 1 Clinton and the most recent one with no motor until I find the correct one for it. The first pic is the lawn ornament I picked up last month which has the plow on it in the pics

    RJ-58 Side cover

    I have the bull gear like the 1st pic and the incorrect 8 tooth mushroom gear. My older style bull gear looks worse than yours in the 2nd pic.

    RJ-58 Side cover

    @stevasaurus Thats it exactly. Thanks again. Now I can start the search for the correct gears

    RJ-58 Side cover

    That has to be it! My mushroom gear has 8 teeth and it didn't really seem like it was meshing correctly with the bull gear but I figured it had to be right because they came from an RJ. That makes perfect sense now because if the gears meshed correctly, that's the 1/16 I need for the brake shaft to slide into the bearing. I didn't know there are 2 different gears. I guess early RJs had one gear and later ones had the other? Also I have a needle bearing for the brake shaft in this side cover. I have another spare side cover that has ball bearings for the brake shaft. Which one of those is early and later? Thank you for all this information. I appreciate it. I took a few pics but they're not uploading for some reason, Ill keep trying.

    RJ-58 Side cover

    @stevasaurus @ACmanThank you for the idea. My problem is that I cant even get the brake shaft started in the bearing hole. Its not just the last 1/4". Ive tried moving both shafts every which way and the brake shaft seems to be too far towards the front of the transmission by about 1/16th of an inch and it will not go into the bearing. Ill try to get a few good pics so you can see what going on.
  15. Hi, I'm rebuilding an RJ-58 tranny and its all together except the left side cover will not go on because the brake shaft is not lining up with the bearing. Its off by about 1/16th of an inch. The bearing on the other side cover is not cocked. The only parts that are not original in the tranny is the big differential gear and a couple bearings but they are the correct size bearings. It is the correct gear, its just out of another unit. Same part number and everything-3502. Did those big gears vary slightly in size during production? because it seems like if the big gear was about 1/16 smaller, I would be able to push the gears together and the cover would slight right on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
