I don't know if this will help, but I found a repair manual for the model 6 & 7 Eatons.

Hope this will help. I have the service manual for the Bolens GTX20. I believe these have the Eaton 11 hydro in them.

Ok, I looked thru that manual a bit, same one I just got in the mail about 2 days ago/ but thanks for posting a copy here for anyone else to see that may be needing one down the road.
Very short troubleshooting section, all 3 possible symptoms result in "Replace Transmission". great. I wonder if that means they didn't offer separate parts for them?

well, the Email to Eaton eons ago was never returned, grass is growing and this is the next machine to be brought back from storage and revived, I am gonna bump this to the top in hopes that somebody new might be lurking that may at least have some suggestions, or maybe even parts laying on the shelf collecting dust-- either parts that would get me going on a rebuild of this one or maybe even a complete used working hydro, that I can plop on there and get this unit working...

My Brother and his partner run a hydraulic repair shop up here in Green Bay, Wi. I had helped them a bit from time to time and we did have an Eaton 11 in the shop with a "no operation" complaint. We torn it down to find that the Rotor bushing had worn to the point most of the oil was bypassing through the worn bushing. A replacement rotor "item 16" was in the $700.00 range.

This was not an option for the owner so we look a bit and found a wrist pin bushing from a Minny Moline tractor fit the O.D. of the rotor and had enough wall and length that we could cut to length and bore the I.D. to the proper size.
The trick was to bore the bushing for the holes in the rotor where the balls fit. In a lathe I built a tool with a 3/4" shank and the size of the holes in the rotor. This I could put in the mill and position the rotor vertically and horizontally to where I needed to bore the hole though the bushing for the 3 hole.
Worked like a champ when installed back into the mower. If you need any information or would like us to look at it for you PM me.

well at the moment too many projects and no reasonably priced replacement hydros are showing up, so I have answered 2 "wanted" ads for guys wanting ZTR needing work, each a couple hours away from me in different directions... one south and the other west... lets see what happens.... if I can find a good used hydro 1st or one of these guys "bites" on my reply, might be time to "pirate" that engine for another machine that I recently acquired....
