I'm still having a hard time with the carbs lol. These are the two carbs I have and the two kits. The kohler kit is just the seat the other has welch plugs.

The crank seal fell out now I'm working on the petrified pan gasket.

I like spray gasket remover.  Even the most rock hard gaskets come right off after using it, or at least after 2 applications.

I got a new job so I've been busy with life. I finally got out to the shop. Got the oil a pan gasket and seal replaced. Hopefully I can get her running tomorrow. We're getting close to plow time and spring clean up.

She runs. I need to get a air filter. What size are the air filter housing to carb screws? I knocked the air filter housing over and my shop ate the screws.

The carb ids worse now than before the rebuild. I needed to plow so I threw a 10hp carb acc adjusted it. The tractor runs good and im happy with it. This was the first time I really got to work it. This one may be a keeper.uploadfromtaptalk1394917479839.jpg

I'm thinking about getting rid of the carrier bearing and doing a full drive shaft with ujoints.

You just cant seem to win with this one. I know the feeling, have a 1650 been sitting in my shop for 3 years. Stick with it and it will be worth it. One thing I have thought about is contacting eaton to get a replacement input shaft for the hydro. The eaton 11 was used in several different GTs and had several different input shafts. I know mine will go out sometime so I have been thinking of solutions.

David, being you'd like to go to a universal joint hydro shaft, maybe you could remove the hydro input shaft, have it turned down to fit a universal yoke, then have a keyway cut into it.  You'd be fine from then on.

I don't know how I want to go. I would assume I have to pull the pump apart to get that shaft out. Not something I want to do.

The MTD 990 tractor used the same pump, but DID have the woodruff keyed smooth shaft.  Maybe you can locate a used pump.

I'd still have to pull the pump apart. I don't know yet I'm getting tired of this thing.

Obviously that input shaft is toast as is other than milling down and re-surfacing as Daniel said. 

I've heard guys drilling and bolting shaft and coupler together, but that would be last resort for me.
