My transaxle in my Fourteen Hundred has a problem with Worn out Brake pads and a worn out Shifter de-tent ball and/or spring.It pops out of 1st gear when I can find it.I have to run in granny or 2nd or 3rd gear.I really need 1st gear for mowing and blowing.It's to fast in 2nd for the blower and Way to slow in granny.
I just got a Parts John Deere 112 with a good Peerless 2300 transaxle.It Looks the same other than the Band brake on the JD vs the disk on my MTD.
My question is Will it bolt up to my to my MTD tractor without having to Modify anything other than the brakes and possibly change the drive pulley over?
I looked up the numbers on the JD transaxle and I got a manual for it but it says it has a Posi Diff? Is it a true posi or just a limited slip?The transaxle in my MTD is limited slip or it has a very worn Diff in it because it spins both wheels in the mud and it will bury it's self up to the running boards in no time.
Here's a pic of my MTD in it's winter clothes.
