Awesome, thank you. Fun part is now I know I don't have original motor or trans. This'll be fun. Motor so far seems strong. Only issue this far is it won't move. Like I stated before I have no clue about hydrostatic trannys. I'll get a pic of its factory stamp.

That's an Eaton 7 hydro. What it came out of could be anyone's guess. They were commonly used on just about every brand you can think of. Bolens used the Eaton 7 on their later model lawn tractors such as the H11LT (1011H) and the ST series such as the ST140 (3014H).

 

Sorry, I didn't see your last post with the transaxle numbers. I was looking at the orientation of your other trans pictures wrong and didn't realize the picture was sideways which lead me to think it was the Eaton 7, which is incorrect.

 

The Eaton 750 - 751 was a light duty hydrostatic transaxle. They were used in a variety of small lawn tractors, including some later Bolens ST series. These were considered a "non tilling" type trans and were not recommended for any real heavy pushing or pulling.

You beat me to it, ClassicBolens. I found the info in the 1987 Equipment Seminar book on pp 28, 29 (pdf pp 30, 31). It looks as though the LT11 was first offered in 1979 (1113-01), as you stated, but it was in production for 4 years ending in 1982. In 1980 the model designation became 1113-02. The correct 11hp B&S engine was Model No. 252707-018901 for the entire run.

Not a clue. With it being customized to fit the hydro trans I doubt they used the original belt for the 3 speed trans. If you're lucky, there may be a number on the belt. If not, you'll likely have to take it with you to get it matched up.

Sounds good. Hopefully I can get it sorted quickly. The current belt will rotate the fins on the hydro but it won't move. So not sure what exactly the issue is.

It looks like most of the fins on your cooling fan are broken off, but maybe it is just the picture. If that is the case you will want to replace or repair it. I haven't got much experience with hydro transaxles either, but I do know some of them have a lever that allows them to free-wheel. If the  lever is in that position it won't move.

If hose has been leaking, fix that and maybe just needs refill???  ON pressure release, may just be a button that will pop back out when running, or some even had bolt heads to turn or loosen, like on Wheelhorse brands.  Think you'll need a manual for whatever axle you have in it also to make sure all the items are correct enough to run it.  Check for weather the axles might be turning IN the wheels centers. Sometimes there are keys or such that shear off and can't drive the wheel anymore.

Hose replaced and refilled. Still no luck. Really hope it's not shot. That would give me two shot gt's.

How do I go about finding the original transmission number. I'm thinking that may be my best option.

I lifted the rear of the gt and wheels will move, albeit slowly. So I'm leaning toward the belt being too lose or it's a pulley causing it to jump off track. Any thoughts?

I've been tinkering with this a bit more. Unfortunately, no progress has been made. Any help would be appreciated.
