i bought a da sander and im starting to sand down the fenders. i got the transaxle out and fixed the gearshifter. it now easily moves through the gears. i opened up the cover to find no oil and a bunch of rusty, nasty stuff. how do i remove all of this without a complete dissemble? i dont want to take it completely apart i just want to clean it out. the machine is starting to come along. i thought about buying a wet sandblaster to do the inside of the frame where i cannot get with the da. i also now own a HVLP gun so i can start painting the right way and not with a rattle can. has anyone used a wet sandblaster, its a unit that uses a pressure washer to blast the surface with media.

You could do a diesel flush on the rear end. That is what I did with my Bush Hog D4-10. With you having the garden tractor disassembled it will be a little tougher to do but possible. Fill the rear with diesel and use a drill chucked to the input shaft of the tranny and run it for a while and then drain that diesel out. Do it a couple more times until it is pretty clean.
