Did you change out the fluid in it? If so, what did you put back in it?

The design of the planetary configuration has a larger "differential in transitional speed"than a bevel gear type, basically making them harder to break torque and spin, This is why they work so well in these LGTs. I'm not sure, but I thought Deere John had full open diffs in the 2600 series trannys in their old 400 series gt's.
If you use the planetary diff, make sure the little planet gears are perfectly aligned and the axles are also perfect ,this will help keep it from binding,but that speed differential will always make it hard to turn from a dead stop.

Changed it and filter when I first got it two years ago, and changed it again the other day. I went with Shell Spirax TGH

I've been researching parts diagrams and parts lists and trying find kits for the 2500 series. Looking at the diagrams, I suspect I will need all seals and gaskets, all the bearings, and possibly the thrust washers. I see some of the thrust washers are tabbed, is this critical, or can I source local suppliers.

 

I Know olcowhand has the seal kits, and the price is right. Bearings are a bit of a larger dollar item. I'm usually pretty good at being able to source locally available parts. Does any one know of a list of the standard numbers for the bearings/

Apparently I've made a mistake, let me clarify.

 

Update; Yes you are quite right. It was oldpathsequipment that had them, my apologies.

I had to set it aside for a bit. Being out of work means I need to make some cash, so I've been working on other things.

 

I got the caliper fixed up, and I can move it and use it if I have to.  I still need to rebuild the trans so I'm in the market for a replacement.. I'm also in the market for another fuel tank, since this one held on a low pressure air test and then started leaking after a week.

 

I'm also working on a battery cover and covers for the levers.

 

I've been fighting with EI regarding my status, they figure I'm an occasional claimant, Odd since I've been working pretty steady for 28 years.

Ei has been pretty decent all things considered, the status issue determines whether or not I have to take a 20% cut going in at 6 weeks or at 18 weeks.. Either way I still need a job, A man needs a job to go to, else he be standing in his garage drinking beer all day.

I can relate to that! Since I am retired, can't collect that money any more!
