A fair sized list of repairs…

For Ernie….

Looks like I’ll need to pull the transaxle out of him…  Advice I’ve gotten from the folks at MTF is that there is a seal right against the case of the transaxle that has probably failed…  I THINK it would be the one in this illustration:

4 speed transaxle seal and retainer

Whats likely happened is the seals on both sides have let go, and gear oil has run down the axle supports (not pictured here) and out the ends of the axles…

So it means that I’ll have to pull out the transaxle and replace those seals… Likely I should do some other bearings while I’m in there, and do a general cleanup.  Other things I can do while I’ve got it apart are:

  • Check/replace the brake that doesn’t seem to work
  • Put the neutral start switch in and get IT hooked up.
  • Check out the variator to make sure its functional…

So, lots of fun, when I find the time…
