My mf 1o has a very noisy gearbox and upon looking into it find a very wobbly main drive pulley.The allen key was loose allowing the pulley to slide back and forth.See a post were it looks like a project to replace the bearings..Were can i get a drawing of the gear box.It is a 72 variable speed hydrastatic..

I think you mean it's a variable speed gear drive. The hydro's weren't in the 10's (pretty sure) and the rear end should be gear drive. If that's the case, you should have a peerless 2300 tranny. You can double check me with this document: http://gardentractor...nsaxle-id-1912/

If it's the 2300, here's a parts list: http://gardentractor...arts-list-1748/

Hope that helps.
