What are my options for fixing this bad transaxle

Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago

Hello A.J. Have you ever rebuilt a transaxle before. Tuff Torq does not publish a Repair or Service manual for their transaxles. If you decide to rebuild your transaxle, you will will to make notes, and take pictures as you go. This will help you a lot, with re-assembly.

Tuff Torq does have a parts list online for you to order parts. The parts you will need to rebuild your transaxle, are sort of expensive. We can continue from here.
