I have a flywheel! At least I'm pretty sure. However, I'm away from home until Wednesday. I'll let it go for a lot cheaper than a hundred bucks. If you want to hold off unil I can get you a picture ill do that when I get back. Don't know if I have a stator though. I don't remember but can check in a few days.

Well, I decided I would probably use this 317, instead of trying to get the other one back in shape.  I don't need 2 of them, but one will provide a good source of parts for the other.

 

I hauled it to a car wash and cleaned it off as best I could--there was crusted on oily dirt everywhere underneath.  In the process, I managed to break the clear line that shows the transaxle oil level--it was pretty brittle, and needed to be replaced.

 

The body pan was only held on by two bolts, so I decided to remove it so I could more easily work on the transaxle, etc.

 

 

When I got the body off, I discovered this:

 

 

I've never known of a metal fan to break like this unless it's physically damaged.  The broken-off blade was lying in the bottom of the fan shroud--completely buried in crud...

 

Now, a couple questions:

 

How do you remove the fan??? this one had a nylon wire tie through the hole up by the pump, I removed it, but the fan hub seems to be pressed on.

 

How do you drain the transaxle.  There's a big hex nut at the very back, about even with the axles, but it wouldn't drain much from that... do you break a line free?

 

As always, any help would be appreciated.
