    Mike...this was suggested to me on another forum...guess it's worth a try to rule out any problem with the rebuilt motor. Thanks...

    Kraig....mine is the manual lift. I really don't think I'm up to getting back into separating the tractor, pulling the transaxle, etc. I had that thing on a jack for literally weeks - wrestled with it getting it out and not much better going back in. I'm really discouraged at this point. I still...

    Can't believe it. Just spent over a year pulling out the old engine (rod broke last summer) from my 129, separated the tractor, pulled the pump and replaced the cork gasket, got a rebuilt engine, put it in and got everything hooked up again (over the course of a few weeks), and finally am at the...

    Kraig...thanks for additional info. I'd been checking out videos but don't believe I came across this one. So far I adjusted the shaft and arm as far ccw as it can go (as per previous suggestions). So now I'll wait till the tachometer arrives and then see where I'm at. Same with carb settings. I...

    Still trying to wrap my head around how this governor mechanism works. When the throttle control is pushed, the governor spring stretches and the speed control bracket moves towards the right (while this happens the governor arm is being pulled to the left). Once the governor arm can no longer...

    Feel like an idiot....after posting (but then had to leave the house for awhile) it dawned on me that ccw=counter clockwise. Senior moment I guess. I have the manual and read about adjusting the governor. I ordered one of those laser tachs and so should be able to take care of this myself...

    David...sorry to appear rather stupid...but what is ccw? I'm still a bit confused on what you're suggesting, having never done anything with the governor since I have the tractor! So no need for the tachometer?

    How necessary is it to check the high rpm before using my rebuilt K-301 engine in my 129? Ready to start using it but the mechanic who put together the engine for me indicated that the high speed limit (3600) really should be checked before using the tractor. He said he'd come out to my...

    I assume the plug you refer to is the single one on top of the trans. On the parts diagram, it shows that below the plug is an o-ring, "pack shim" (?) and a charge pump relief valve spring. So not sure how careful I'd need to be with taking that out. Can't some fluid be added with a funnel?

    Ron....I'll have to look in the manual regarding the neutral adjustment. I did my best to realign the cam bracket exactly where it was when I took it off, using one of the (many!) pictures I took during the whole disassembly process. The manual refers to having both wheels off the...

    Matt...interesting that a reply I got on anther forum indicated that he, too, had changed the gasket and then wanted to add hytran through those ports but then said most of it ran out on the floor (?) Won't the pump get primed if I just fill up through the rear? Just wondering. Hate to take...

    Matt...right now the tractor is separated and there's no engine, so the driveshaft is on my workbench; however, I assume I can accomplish the same thing by rotating the coupling arm. Never did any trans work other than this recent cork gasket job, but I presume you're referring to what the...

    Gerry...thanks. I presume the same for the flare nut on the other end? Had a question too about putting on a new filter. I always forget...my dealer said to fill it part way with fluid, let it sit for awhile and then the elements inside will absorb most of that (?) Then ready to screw it...

    On my 129, how tight should the trans suction tube nut be? Not talking about the flare nut directly below the filter, but the other one - underneath. I took this thing apart months ago as part of a cork gasket replacement, and now don't recall how tight it was. I'm using a pretty...

    Ron, Thanks. The job sounds like more than I want to get into right now. Guess this is why most people just weld while the shaft is attached to the tractor. My repair guy either must be misunderstanding what I referred to or else is confused with some other part.

    Still confused on this trunnion (tron shaft) problem. The guy who is working on putting together a new engine for me said that the tron shaft can be replaced without getting into the hydro and suggests this rather than welding the worn corners. Is he right? I'm thinking, from all I've heard here...

    Kraig, I checked with my brother regarding the rod situation I referred to, and am told that that the guy must be using a used or refurbished crankshaft which has had the rod journal turned down to a smaller diameter to eliminate imperfections. Thus the rod has to be ordered in the correct...

    Kraig...thanks. Certainly an interesting idea. Assuming any sort of non-welded but rather screw or nut/bolt attached plate would hold, I can see where it could be a reasonably permanent fix. I do think I'll work with the JB Weld first and see how it comes out. It'll be awhile (probably several...

    Dennis...I get your point. Certainly worth a try I suppose. The strange thing about all this is that I don't recall having had any erratic speed issues, unresponsiveness, or "jumpy operation" (such as has been described here) while driving. The last 2 years or so it seemed to drive as it always...

    Nate...my brother just suggested the exact same thing. He mentioned perhaps trying to "build" a 'form", so-to-speak, using stiff cardboard pieces to closely match the desired dimensions. Of course, I'd think something has to be placed under the tron shaft so the JB Weld doesn't simply fall right...
