    Hi Peter,

    This link should get you to a list of parts catalogues for the two versions of the TX: ftp://ftp.rapid.ch/Iseki/Traktoren%2...0parts%20list/

    If it doesn't work, let me know and I'll email it to you.

    Thanks Dan that worked fine

    Hope things are progressing with getting your 1500 back up and running. Interesting you seem to have found some parts suppliers in the UK - maybe you could post details if you get a chance

    Dan,
    Hope you guys are doing well across the pond! Dan, that great that you found a replacement transaxle! There does seem to be a lot more of these tractors in the U.K./Scotland. I often look at ebay in the UK for parts. The US has pretty strict import laws regarding these tractors because of lawsuits filled by large tractor companies attempting to stop the import of grey market tractors due to a fear that they have regarding injury related lawsuits for the branded tractors that were intended for the asian markets. Iseki's seem to be an exception however because Iseki currently does not sell Iseki branded tractor in the US new. They do manufacture some of the tractors and equiptment for New Holland, and Cat Challenger tractors. I am having a heck of a time trying to find the tow hitch that mounts below the PTO shaft. I keep cheking both the American and UK eBay sites. Anyways, I hope that the project comes out well! Let me know if you need any of the service manual pages, and I will post them, or send them to you.

    Peter,

    I have the service manual, and the older parts catalogue can be found online, however finding the parts from it can be tricky sometimes. ftp://ftp.rapid.ch/Iseki/Traktoren%2...20tractors/TX/
    There is a parts dealer in Israel on eBay that I recently ordered parts from, and they took a few weeks, but he seems to have quite a few parts, and you can reference the part numbers with him. This is his site on eBay, and he said that he has other parts not listed: esof | eBay

    Hope all else is well with you guys!

    Hi Mitch

    many thanks as ever for all your help snow is finally melting and we are hoping the ground will dry out so we can rotavate/till and get some planting done
    I've ended up importing various bits and pieces from the USA because i simply can't find them here which is really frustrating Ironically even having to pay the VAT
    on imports some things are cheaper to get from the States because the base price is cheaper; I despair sometimes that we just don't seem to make anything here anymore

    Anyway sermon over..... Mitch is it the hitch part thats attached to/part of the tractor that you're after? I spend a good deal of time 'researching' stuff on the Internet so if I come across
    anything I'll let you know

    Maybe you can help with the post looking for the PTO output shaft for the TS1610?

    Hi,

    Sorry for the late response! I have been very busy this week, and I hope that springs going great for you! That would be great if you would be able to let me know if you come across this part some day! I have been looking for quite some time, and I have not had any luck. I am looking for the hitch that attaches just below the PTO shaft where you attach a trailer. Below are the photos of the hitch that I need. When I bought the tractor, it had a very roughly constructed hitch, that I would not trust towing a trailer with. I have been using the 3point lift arms with a draw bar attached, however this makes me concerned because It really extends beyond my center of gravity, and makes the front end of the tractor lift if I have too heavy of a trailer attached. Anyways, that would be great if wouldn't mind keeping an eye out! The hitch is item #1 on the list, and the diagram.Thanks again!

    Hi All, been real busy lately so unable to post, but I finally got the replacement transaxle on Friday and spent Saturday night and Sunday morning doing the swap. Will try to tell the story in pictures.

    Above is the old transaxle almost ready for removal, all hardware removed including the PTO case. I meant to take a picture of the removal of the PTO case - attached to the through gearbox shaft are two press fit bearings, you need to take these off with a bearing puller - otherwise the transaxle won't pull out over the shaft.

    Just thought I'd show my method of removing the transaxle with a trolley - just rope it on and go. Worked quite well - good for keeping a level exit, which you need to ease the transaxle over the PTO input shaft.

    Just wheel away the transaxle with a little help from a mallet, here you can clearly see the PTO input shaft - hence the need for a horizontal pull.

    Clearer picture here of the removal method - could have used a chain block, but this was faster and doubled as a method of moving the transaxle around once removed.
