Have you checked the hydro fluid on the GTX yet? Other then that if you gotta pull the hydro out just make sure everything is out of the way. There should be four bolts holding the pump to the axle housing. Save one of the top ones for last unless you will have more room to remove it from the bottom. They have some weight to them, approx. 40 lbs and not fun to hold on to if something gets in the way. You will need an axle housing gasket. I got mine from partstree. There is a guy on ebay selling Eaton hydros out of Bolens for $79. He has keyed and splined shaft. I have a splined shaft coming for my 1655.
Pull the pump out of the GTX first and pull the pump apart. Depending what is wrong with it I might have good pieces from the hydro out of my 1655. My rotors and races are in great shape. I think the problem with mine is the pintle and the acceleration valves. I figured with mine it was just easier to get another hydro as it is a little bit of a process to get the check valves and acceleration valves out of it, plus parts that probably aren't available to put it back together.
If you look in the Massey section, you can check out my thread on the 1655 hydro problems.

Ford LGT 165s use the Eaton 11 pump also. Good luck and take lots of pics. I may have to do mine. Maybe you could start a new thread on just the pump itself. Then if someone else has problems, they can find info on the pump. Have you checked fluid level? Maybe it has an air lock, the filter looks new.
I will most likely do this(start another thread), fluid is very clean and right at full....as far as air lock goes if it has this I have no idea how to check it....I can tell you the pumps front seal has a leak.....

Hey congratulations on the tractor.

I am far from knowing what I am doing with the hydros. The only reason I know about pulling it apart is because I just pulled mine apart. We have the Eaton 11 service manual in the manuals section. You just have to remove the hydro from the axle. Should be four bolts once you remove the drive shaft, linkages and any hoses that are in the way. Here is a link to the pump I just bought, he says he has a bunch of them both keyed and splined.
