Hello-- I recently uncovered a problem with one of my 10 hp LGT Ford tractors 1980 era close side,. The right  angle gear box between the engine and transaxle is heating up  after running for about an hour then the engine starts losing power. If you have worked on these jacobsen built tractors , the clearance is tight, and it would seem at this time, there may not be enough clearance in the rag joint couplings between engine and gear box. Im going to start by emptying all grease out of gear box. Note that there is no breather on these boxes. The gear box drives a belt between peerless 2300 manual 4 speed transaxel.

Hoping someone that has gone down this road can offer good advice. Rebob

Sounds like you have bad bearings in that right angle box. You may be able to source those bearings locally.

Thanks Ken, that is what I have in mind , but the problem is removing the gear box. That will require heat to remove the coupling from input shaft. Close quarter, miserable work. The last one I removed , was taken down to frame. Then a problem getting  coupling off  input shaft as it appeared to have been a tight shrink fit.  Thanks again Rebob

Gotcha on tight quarters and fitment. Not ever seen one of these critters.
