71" 728 is ready to mow again

Recommended Posts

after much trial and tribulation my 728 is back together again. I had to reweld the ears onto my shifter ball into the tranny, but first I had to remove it from the tranny which destoyed the half bearings that are press fit into the case. I destroyed two sets of new split bearings trying to reinstall. Then my father had a brainstorm and told me to sand the edges of the bearings where they meet until all the slop was out of the bearing and shifter ball. It worked like a charm it slid right into the case and I used loctite to hold it into the case so it won't pull out during use. Thanks for the suggestions it will be nice to mow with my 31 year old beauty again.
