Welcome to GTtalk. I can't help you on your question, but I would change your username to something else besides your email address. Spammers are always looking for things like this to flood with spam. Good Luck..

Most of those low priced tractors the axles couldn't be fixed and when went bad, were throw-aways or replace the axles with new, quite costly.  Hard to tell whether a used one would be any better unless you had seen it run, then if it did that, probly not being parted??  Not sure if others are just bolt-ups or not. I have a little bigger version, and have ran for over 10 yrs so far and nothing happening to mine, crossing my fingers. I figure if breaks, will just replace the tractor, and not fix it.

Have you check what the cost of the conversion is vs. buying the better model tractor?

Thanks for the input . I already have a k57 that's in a blown up tractor. The reason I want to swap them out is as you know the k40 have no drain to change the oil in the case and I like to keep proper oil levels in all my equipment. I can't afford to go out and buy a new mower. So I'm doing th he best out of two in hopes to make one good tractor. Anyway like I seid thanks for the input. One other thing whare the settings for my profile on this sight

Okay! It sounds like you have a plan. Someone on here must be familiar w/ the L111.

What's the blown up tractor model.

If you can do any fabbing , you should be able to swap it in. May require new mounts and maybe re-routing of a pulley or belts.

The "normal" upgrade is to the K66, but they upgrade kits are crazy money, cheaper to buy a new tractor...or 4

I've been searching for photos of Tuff Torq transmissions on the internet. The T40 has a 6 bolt pattern on the mounting pad. The K57 seems to have this same pattern. Can you check this on your spare trans? Also check the pulley sizes. Is your spare trans from another JD?
