What can I do to stop the shift rods on my three tractors from leaking out the ends ? I looked at the transmission breakdown Pg. 34 In my parts book, But it dose not show an oring. I have a few ideas how to fix it,But any suggestions would handy.This must be a common problem.Thanks

Drain the oil down to the correct level. Most likly it is over full. There should be 3 plugs on the transmission. 1) Drain plug - At the bottom. 2) Check plug - About half way. 3) Fill plug - At the top.

Not sure that's his problem Maynard. my 725, Landlard and B-112 all leak enough to collect dust from the top down. I know the 725 and Landlord aren't over filled because I gotta keep them topped off as they both need new axle seals. This winter.

Without a seal of any kind/type on the shift rod all my tractors (B-1, 700, & 725) seep/leak a little oil around the rod. But as UCD says, an overfilled transaxle will leak more. A modification to install an oil seal or o-ring on each end of the shaft should work but is a lot of work for such small leaks.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
