I thought maybe its a good time to put the deck on the GT14. So I pulled off the plow....put the deck on....Started her up and the deck wasnt moving. So I thought about it for a moment and realized the deck had been sitting in a back yard for God knows how long uncovered. So it oiled and greased everything up and started moving it by hand. Once everything was free...I started the tractor back up and turned on the PTO. Well it was good for about 2 second and BOOM! Smoke rolled out of the gear box on the deck. That was all she wrote. So now I am looking for a deck or a gear box for my deck.

Sounds like you had water/ice in the gear box and it won.

just thought of something, hard to see from 140 or so miles away.... could you have had a frozen idler or had a spring break and idler bound up???? could the smoke have been the belt from getting bound up?  Might not be the gearbox.... gearbox would be "worst case" deal.

I'm thinking belt too. I don't know why the gear box would be smoking.
