I was selecting a ring gear to send Charles.....and noticed something that may be of help to us. One of the ring gears is not the typical Arrow ring gear......
It is a DANA ring gear. This is what is stamped on the ring gear: 2 4 63 DANA 17649 S1R38 31-6
Looks to be the same at the arrow gears.....not sure where I got this but think I picked it up on my trip to MO and KS back in February........maybe this gear will work with our GT's......and maybe we can find something else it was used in and therefore find another source for a ring gear.?????
Anybody know how to pursue this potential lead???

Has anyone compared this ring gear to that of the Cub Cadet? You know how many manufacturers utilize what's already out there, so maybe another GT uses the same thing.....Powerking maybe?

I just pulled my T63 transaxle apart and it too has the Dana ring gear. Marked 3-7-63 (manufacture date march 7th 1963) 17649 S1R50 31-6. 31 means 31 tooth ring gear, 6 means 6 tooth pinion. This comes out to a 5.17 ratio. Not sure what the S1R50 means. This part number comes up as being used on a Harley-Davidson golf cart from the 60's. Found a picture of a set online for the golf cart and the pinion is different than the Bush Hog pinion. I know you are supposed to use a matched set, but if nothing else is available one of these may get you back in operation.
