I was out mowing with G10 today when all of the sudden...it wouldn't move anymore! Smelled like burned transmission. Checked the level it was at the correct level. Pulled it apart and here is what I foundfatal.jpg Sheared in half.Man I really loved that tractor. Weighing my options on what to do next.

Ouch. Looks like it's time to swap in a 1050 trans.

Dont Panic!

Plenty of 3 speed transmissions and parts tractors out there, grab another 3 speed tranny and keep this one for parts. Can be up and running in a few hours :thumbs:

If you loved that tractor then get a line on a good used tranny and bring it back to life. Another G10 would never be the same!

Not to worry. These trans are very common and replacement should not be that hard, If you are looking for a cheap fix, watch craiglist. If you need it fixed asap I am sure a member has what you need.

If you don't want to replace the whole trans, you can buy a used axle, but that will cost almost the same as a whole trans.

What transmission did Bolens use?

 

I might be even able to get that piece new.

Shucks, that ain't fatal. Like others have said, that's fixable, and you have a number of options.

 

Get the parts to fix it, find another 3-speed transmission, or even replace the whole rear end with one of the 6-speed rear ends.

 

If you replace the whole rear end with one from say a 1050, you will get the controlled differential that the G9, 10, and 11 lacked, and the added 'advantage' of having 12-speeds so you can do this :D :D :D

Which transmission swap would be easier a 1050 or 850? This is virgin territory for me.

Or would you like a used G10 trans?

We see you were able to open and identify the problem so you have the skills to swap a trans-axle unit out. I wanna say I saw on CL a trans for a 1050 with wheels for $125.00, possibly around Pittsburgh, PA.

 

Good luck.

That would be pretty hard to do,Bolens built their own Transmissions.

 

 

G10's are a dime a dozen and you should have no problem finding one to keep it original.

Part number your looking for is 1722140

Sorry to hear about that but like the guys say you certainly get it back up and running for not a lot of money.
