The o-ring goes between the charge pump housing and the center section housing on the hydrostatic transmission. It is item #43, part #IH-23707-R1 on page #15 of the parts manual. I ordered the part on October 5th and got the call it was in on October 12th, went over to pick it up and it had mysteriously disappeared. Reordered it that day and today got the call to pick it up, went back over and looked at the part and it was incorrectly crossed-over to a Case part.
Same size but it was a round o-ring and the part I pulled out was square as is the groove it sets in. Spent an hour between the parts guy, the parts manager and the lady that actually orders the parts. The order lady called at CC and tried to find out why they crossed it to the round part. I asked her to call CC parts and have someone actually get off their rump, pull the part and take a look at it. Nope she has no way of contacting the parts warehouse and it is actually in a different state than the tech gurus. Ordered the CC part but don't know if the CC parts department will cross it again.
Bottom line can someone tell me if the part is actually round or square? Perhaps someone along the way changed the charge pump housing over the almost four decades since the 169 was built.
