I would love to get a hold of an OH180, really like my 16's so I probably would love the torque of the 18.

 

You may want to measure the rearend mounting pads before you get in too deep. While they used the same rear axle, the mounting tabs on the newer models where wider so it may not fit. I don't know what years it changed, but I remember seeing a swap done on recently on another forum and guy had to make spacers, I think he used and older tranny in a newer tractor.

thanks Tahoe, they both go in with spacers, it looks to me that sears just used wider spacers on the newer one. I will be able to fabricate it to fit I'm sure of it. I can make spacers and brackets if I have too. The guy said the tranny was grinding when you try to put it in gear , but alot of them do that anyways until it stops spinning all the gears work. Maybe it's just a bent shift fork. I never had one of those kind apart so I can't really guess without ripping into it

Uhm that's weird, my suburban didn't have any spacers when I pulled tranny, it would be the same as your 78.

 

Mine grinds quite often, I think my clutch needs adjusted cause input pulley spins for quite a bit before it finally stops. I think my belt isn't disengaging completely.

Tahoe, they are real thin like washers on the 78, the early 80s parts gt I have the spacers are about an inch and a half. The mounting bolt patterns are the same. The newer one even still has a drum type brake. I'm Sur it is going to go right in. If not I will make adapters to make it work
