I know a guy that has one, I am not needing one right now and he wanted more than I was willing to pay. If someone needs one to get one back up and going may be worth the price. Send me a private message if you are interested.

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.

This ring gear is the same ring gear found in Jaques Mighty Mite tractors and in some Page garden tractors. These ring gears are found in Dana model 11 rear ends that were used in Crosley cars in the late 30's and early 40's. The ring gear in my 1976 Power king is a larger diameter and will not fit in the Dana model 11 rear. I believe these later Power King rears are a Dana model 23. I did notice a couple of different bolt patterns on the rear end covers on power king tractors, so other model Dana rears could have been used in them.

Would make sense, I believe Shaw used a Crosley transmission in the Shaw mowers so they had a connection to the factory.

The Crosley drive train was the ideal size for these garden tractors. The Borg Warner T92 transmission has been used in many garden tractors, even mounted sideways with chain and belt drive. I've seen these transmissions in Speedex, Power King, Red-E/Page, Lambert and a few other tractors that I can't remember. The T96 was also popular and is a much stronger transmission with helical gears and synchros for 2nd and 3rd gear, but they came from Jeeps and other vehicles bigger than the Crosley. It would have been interesting to have been around in the 40's and 50's when these old garden tractors were being dreamed up and pieced together. This is one of my favorite pics of a Gard'n Mast'r Jr. Being worked on. 1930's mopar rear end, transmission, and 16" smoothie rear rims, along with a Crosley steering column and steering wheel.
