Hi there :)

 

   I have an antique craftsman tractor - model 917.255914. I have stripped some of the gears. - part numbers 4201R, 4203R, 4204R, 1153R and these part are now discontinued. Major bummer. This is from a transaxle model number 105401X serial number 61521

 

   Can anyone give me a suggestion on where I might be able to find some replacement gears? eBay is not a big help. 

 

    I'm located in the smoky mountains of north carolina.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

David

:wave: Welcome to the forum! I have antiques I didn't know I had!

 

Those rear ends are nearly a dime a dozen as Sears used them for years! I have 3 tractors with them and a parts rear with 2nd gear out of it. If you were closer, I'd give it to you.

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

 

    Would you be willing to pull the gears I need out of the busted transaxle and ship them for a fee? :) 

    I've come to rely on this tractor and as they say on game of thrones, Winter Is Coming ;)

If I can get it apart. May be a bit before I can get it up to the shop to see if any of those parts are good.

 

This is a hi/lo tranny, right?

This is a Hi/Lo transmission. I can take pictures if you like. I was somewhat pleased at how easy it was for me to open mine up and how easy the gears fit in the case. The only gear I haven't removed yet related to my destruction is the reverse idler gear.

I've never had one of these apart. I'll have to go dig it out and hope I don't disturb any wasps doing it.

I copied the post about the seals and made it into a PDF so that info can be found easier. I have uploaded it here.

The dissection has begun! Only thing I am worried about is identifying the gears once I bust the case open. I have an exploded view printed out. but it will be a challenge to get the right ones.

There was no water in there, but a lot of sludge.

I also have a line of thunderstorms about 60 miles West moving in! Don't really have a spot inside to move it too without some rearranging! And I'd rather keep oily things out of there!

I got it moved inside and busted apart. Need to take the diagram out and figure out what gears are needed. Got a major T-storm coming in. Wind switched to NE at about 30-35 MPH and LOTS of Thunder! Direct TV is out as usual, so have to rely on the internet for weather Alerts.

Area in Blue is where the second gear is out of it.
