Ok, so yesterday i made a 300 mile round trip for a very mint 1886 with plow, snowblower and mower deck. drove 150 miles there to find that the driveshaft had a nasty wobble to it, figured it was the driveshaft or the trans input shaft, turned out to be the input shaft. Luckily I love to buy junkers for oddball parts, so i do have a bolens 1455 with a good transmission. I have decided im going to replace either just the input shaft in my 1886 or would I be better off swapping the whole pump from a 1455 into the 1886? This whole thing is killing me because i have been waiting 3 years to find a good large frame to put my nos johnson loader on and now this one is turning into a headache.

Well the donor rear end leaks bad out of the axle seals. Good news is I got the pump out of the donor rear and it looks to be in fine shape, I figure it was parked for 30 years so I'd imagine it has limited hours. Tomorrow on my lunch break at work I'll start getting parts off my 1886 rear and get ready to swap either pumps or shafts. Pics will come tomorrow or Tuesday most likely.

 I'd have gone with an entire rear end swap like Rick suggested especially where it has few hours on it. Do a seal replacement while it's apart. Good luck with the swap I hope all goes well for you.

well i finally found time to get back to this project. I have a pump from a 1455 pulled on a shelf, would there be any issues with putting a pump from a 1455 on it?

Simple as dropping the linkage, unbolt the old , couple new o-rings (check with site sponsors if a need) slide the replacement in, reconnect, new filter ? Fluid ? Go.
