I have a S-16H with a rear transaxle leak.  I am wondering what all i am going to encounter with this while i tear it apart.  While im taking the axle out and fixing the leak, do i have to worry about marking timing or any linkages since the hydrostat oil goes through the axle?   If you have done this before any help tips or insight would be appreciated

Welcome to the site 1964Deere! Are you talking about the axle seal that is leaking or is it elsewhere? If it is just the shaft that you are

pulling out it is a splined shaft. I don't think there is a marked spline to line up.

I think you have a Sunstrand hydro and a Dana rear. I found a breakdown in a manual.

I hope this will help.

Well i got it all back together. It wasn't as bad as i thought.  I did run into a major snag though.  I cant get the sunstrand pump to prime.  I can get it to move just a little bit forward(really slow) before the pump starts to get warm.  I read through the manual and followed the instructions to prime the pump with no luck.  does anyone have a trick with this?  About to bite the $ bullet and take it to a proffesional :(

Did you check the oil level after starting to prime it? Some one around here had been talking about, that you will have to add oil- drive a bit -add oil again. I don't have to much experiance with the hydro section. Some one should be around with experiance shortly.

I had to prime my gt17 twice. Are you using the lift to help it prime? I had to cycle my lift up and down several times

Did you get her going? I changed out the oil & filter in the hydro with it up on jackstands and wheels off. Was standing on one side of it cycling the lift, putting it in gear, etc. Lifts came back quick but only had slow motion going on the rear axle. Was starting to get frustrated when I had that "DUH" moment. Went to the other side of the tractor and put it in gear, the drum was spinning like crazy. :wallbanging:

i finally got irritated enough that i took it to the small engine shop.  Turns out the free wheeling pushrods were stuck in the bypass position.  luckily they didnt charge me much, and it is moving really good again.  and the leak is not bad once i got it fixed
