Spent time on the drive shaft. The ends of the shaft were worn and tapered so it was loose on each u-joint. Bought a 3/4" cold rolled rod and drilled a non-precision hole in each end. Worked on it until the spring pins would fit with some degree of tightness. Installed the shaft and it should be good to go.
Replaced the transaxle seal and that was an easy fix. Spent a lot of time getting the other hub off of the axle, which was rusted on. It would have slipped off if that seal was a leaker too.
Started it up and the hydro works good.
