Raider12 transaxle oil change
Mikey j, in Transmissions and transaxles
my 1067 stopped moving; limited slip had worn out long ago; now input pully is turning , but tractor doesnt move --- very slight motion forward or backward if on level ground with no resistance. Enough to tell me shift lever is actually changing gears.
I suspect input shaft woodruff keys but might be something worse ... i am interested in perhaps buying a new, used,or rebuilt transaxle if someone has one they would part with. And any advice on opening up the transaxle and looking inside . Or where i can find parts to rebuild it myself...

I have a 12hp kohler that when its running it pops threw the exaust and you can see a small amount of flame in the muffler. What does this mean and how do I get it to stop? Thanks Paul
I have not had to do this before and want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.
Picture of bearing and seal is attached.
Is the bearing supposed to fit in the groove of the oil seal or is the seal supposed to flush against the bearing? I think the latter is correct?
My cheap-o walmart U1 battery is starting to bite the dust again (barely able to crank it over fully charged, and ozzing everywhere) after 3 years on my 68' Raider and I am looking into a new battery for winter as I now have a plow setup. I was thinking of either getting the original 22NF battery that came with it or running a mazda mita battery which is a U1 size. Is the AGM worth the extra money over the 22nF even in the smaller size? I think the vibrations keep killing the cheapo batteries and I am trying to make sure I can leave it out in the cold and not have a problem starting in the winter. It does get down to 0F or below zero every once in a while. I don't think I want to go all the way to a 22nF AGM as it is $200.

Rolled the latest one out to the drive fired it up and cant put it in gear without grinding the gears.
Readjusted the clutch pulley got LOTS of slack in the belt but the trans pulley still turning at a pretty good clip
Not sure what should be my next move?????
