Hello Everyone,
My father inlaw called me todat regarding his j.d. 425 tractor with 54" deck. He said that his mower deck gear box seal was leaking and he didn't notice, sooo while mowing the gears got HOT and locked up the mower and stalled the tractor. He said he kinda flushed the gearbox out and filled it with new oil, but now its noisey. So he is in the market for hopefully a new gearbox, but if a new gearbox is too costly he will have to settle with a used gearbox. If anyone has any parts or info on where to get a good deal on a gearbox please chime in. Thanks!!

I checked the JD site and it doesn't look like they sell separate parts for the gearbox, which seems odd to me. I wonder if it's only the bearings that need replacing. It looks like you could disassemble it but I've never done one myself. It looks like it has tapered bearings.
