The bevel gears in the gearbox are completly eat up and a new one is $849.00. This is my wife's grass cutting tractor so I have to fix it. Does anybody know where an old deck might be hiding? Been tring to find out if the larger decks from the B series use the same gearbox. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your able to find your parts. These are excellent tractors and deserve to be kept running. You'll never find one that is easier on fuel.
There used to be a gentleman in Florida that listed used parts for these decks on E-bay. I purchased some from him and was very helpful. You might want to check there.

bit the bullet and went to local dealer and ordered all the parts to rebuild the deck. Even ordered new decals for the hood. there was a G5200 on ebay but I didn't win and it was 500 miles away. Anybody interested in a JD STX38 (no hood or deck) 12.5 Kolher command? Runs good. The bota and 1855 won't let it stay in the same stable!

There comes a time when you cringe and just have to fork over the cash. Sorry you couldn't find something used.
These machines are definitely worth what it take to keep them running. Good luck and don't forget to fill the gearbox before using.

Thanks Chris, What should I use in the gearbox, Kubota oil or spring for Lucas oils best? I was just thinking maybe I should go ahead and replace the universal joints on the drive shaft. Ordered new front tires from Tucker's yesturday and they were on the door step this morning. the tire spoons I ordered won't be here till next week.

If there is no play in the u-joints and they move freely I would use them. If they have grease zirks grease them until grease just appears by the joints.
I'm guessing the gear box uses 80-90 gear lube. If I think of it I will look in the manual tomorrow. I use lubricants from the local CO-
OP.

Rebuild of the deck has begun! found a couple of holes eat through the metal that need welded up.
Since it this far apart and all the new parts I figure it should be painted. I did not have my camera when the outside spindle bearings were installed but will take some when the gearbox goes together.
The book says 90W for the gearbox so that is what I bought.

I have found on these decks that the metal thickness from one place to another can be huge. I have never seen such inconsistency before. It's no wonder the decks rotted out so fast. I have to give credit to Kubota for continuing to support these older machines. I really appreciate their customer support. They built a very good tractor but sure didn't follow through on the deck.

Thanks for everybody's help. I did get a picture of the mouse nest under the battery tray. Deck is nice and quite now. Cuts like a new one. I still need to strip the hood and paint it. Bought new decals and PO had a new grill. Cut all 4 acres last Friday. My wife is very HAPPY!

Dang, I sure hope my gearbox under my G4200 holds up! I checked the lube before mowing started this year, and it still looks like new & full, so good for now. You've done a good job there!

Congratulations on getting your Kubota up and running. Take care of that Grille. When I checked a couple of years ago they were $80.00 for a new one and they sure look bad without something to fill that hole.

Daniel I think as long as you service your gearbox and keep an ear open for unusual sounds you won't have much in the way of problems.
