RJ Hamner posted a topic in Transmissions and transaxlesJust started a ground up restore on a 1968 Raider 12. Step ! was going to be the transmission. Made a cradle/work table and armed myself with all the required manuals. I just split the case this afternoon and was amazed at what I found. I had rebuilt the transmission on my 60 Suburban and had sludge chipped teeth and a broken casting. I found none of that. The guy I bought it from told me that 3 of them had used the Raider to mow a small cemetery until they got too old and or hired a contractor to do it. They either took extremely good care of it or this is a replacement or was rebuilt a while back. The pictures are "as opened". the only thing I have done was wipe the excess oil out of the one case half. Cast you well trained eyes (I don't consider myself anywhere near an expert on transmissions) ((wife says I am barely housebroke)) I would appreciate your opinions on wither or not I need to do a complete rebuild. As a side note: All the ball and needle bearings are clean and rotate freely; Thanks Bob
I finally got a chance to rebuild a transmission with a hi/low mechanism. This is a 6 speed #5060 transmission with the 10 pinion limited slip differential. Notice the brake shaft comes out the hole closest to the axle housing. The 8 speeds brake shaft comes out of the cluster shaft hole. I did a series of videos for this thread along with some pictures. The videos are split up between different phases of rebuilding...ie...the differential, the hi/low shift mechanism, the rest of the gears 1 & 2 (my batteries died in the camera). Most of the information will be in the videos...be advised that I did some struggling while doing these videos and I left them as is because it is not always easy. Hope this helps you guys. correction... According to the manual the bolts that hold the differential together are in backwards in the video. The nuts should be on the input shaft side (right side) of the transmission. Sorry, I missed that. Just got the trans split. I use a 1" old wood chisel to start and then work the case apart with a pry bar. A couple shots after getting the case half off...trans is in neutral. The trans case works as a work bench for the differential...very cool Here is the reason the trans needed to be opened. An axle gear lost it's teeth and the pieces were lodged in the pinions. Finished and back together. The rest are the videos...1st on is the differential... Next 2 are dealing with the hi/low mechanism...1st one taking apart and the 2nd on putting together...be nice...it was my first time. Now, 2 videos putting the rest of the trans together...batteries died just before I finished the first video. Thanks for looking
Got my transmission fixed last year in time for winter and have been mowing all spring/summer no problem until tonight. I got a Raider 12 with a 5060 transmission and when I was mowing the lawn today I went to shift the tractor from 1st to 2nd gear and nothing happened. I didn't hear a grind or anything, but put the tractor back in neutral, shut off the mowing deck and tried going into to gear. The tractor wouldn't move at all. I can still roll the tractor in neutral but shifting the transmission in gear with the tractor off does not have the tractor brake. I already think I know what the answer is, but is there anyway I did not strip a gear in the transmission and not have to drop the transmission to find and replace the gear that probably stripped? Thanks for help.
