Hello, new to the forum, just had a question.  My rear end in my s-16h tractor is leaking oil really bad after getting the tractor stuck, none of the fitting seem to be leaking.  Does anyone know if a rear end (trans and hydro) from a gt20 would work in my tractor? 

Thanks,

Carl

Welcome to GTT. You can go to the Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day) and check the manuals for the two tractors. You could also post pics of each. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the forums!
There are small differences between the two. Good chance a few mounting points won't line up. But overall it should fit in.

might be easier to find and fix the leak. I had to replace all the hoses on my GT19 as I bought it with one blown and shortly after getting it running for the 1st time another popped a pinhole. Its unbelieveable how much fluid will blow out from just a pinhole.....  could be just an axle seal.... might be easier to fix what you have,  chances are you might swap axles and still have a leak.....

Thank everyone for your advice, I will try to get a good look at it tomorrow, it'll be a little warmer and I'm hunting today (last day of muzzle loader season).  The tractor has been my go-to since I bought it 9 years ago...for $900 with a cab, blower, weight box, and deck.  I will get it fixed, nothing they make today can touch it.  If anyone has more suggestions, please let me know.

Carl

Check the hoses running to the hydraulic valve. They can leak onto the rear making it look like the rear is leaking. Been there already.

Checked the hoses, appears to be leaking between the hydro and rear end....pretty dirty in there, I'm going to have to give it a good cleaning before I can pinpoint the leak.  Not the time of year I wanted to be doing this. :wallbanging:

There's a gasket in between there.
