    Well my grass is way tall and I just don't have the time to do this rebuild and the wife is saying to just take the mower to JD and let them change out the tranny. I would really like to see the rebuild on You Tube....and I don't mind the language because I will be right there with you! Thanks to everyone on that has posted up.

    GixxersRevolt-mine is a 2002 X300 with about 200 hours on it and has been a great mower as well. I just have to fix the tranny and get back to mowing. What did you pay for the parts?

    I paid a total of $181 and change with shipping.
    Parts will be here on Monday according to UPS tracking number. I am going to do the tear down and cleaning this weekend. I'll try to post video before Monday.

    My mower is a 17.542HS Sabre. Not sure if it is the same setup as yours but if it is the removal and install is pretty straight forward. Could save you some considerable labor $ if you go the route of installing yourself.

    I'll try to find some time to throw a video up for the removal and install too.

    Hi Yellow. Like you, I didn't have the time to do the rebuild myself. I considered replacing the tranny with a new unit as your wife is suggesting, but I found out about the rebuild options and then about Duane Deardorff at Tuff Torq doing the rebuild on the side for customers.

    Essentially he installs the T46 rebuild kit you can buy from Tuff Torq ($374) and if you desire, adds a T57 upgrade kit. The basic rebuild was $475.00. The T57 upgrade added $89.00. They can send you a pre-configured shipping box for an additional $13, which I used. That comes to $577. That does not include the cost of shipping the unit down to them, but it does include UPS ground return shipping. These were prices Duane quoted me in December, so I don't know if the fuel increases have changed his prices since then. A generic new K57 on the Tuff Torq site lists between $800 and $900 (not sure how it is configured), and a Simplicity spec'd K57 is $1018. If you read the Tuff Torq literature, the K57 is the same basic unit as the T46 just enhanced for additional durability and rated for a larger set of tires. You get an oil drain port and a charge pump for starters - not found in the T46.

    I figured the additional upgrade cost and $100 for letting someone else do the work of installing the rebuild kit were worth it especially when compared to the price of a new build K57. A new K46 goes for over $600 and it is still a K46. I figured letting someone do the work to upgrade me to a K57 for about the same amount as a new K46 was worth the investment. Of course, if you have the time, you save a bunch doing it yourself.

    Here's a link to show the work Duane did for me. The one item not normally included is the bottom case which he apparently cracked while taking my unit apart.

    Good luck!

    Desert,
    I just went through the ordering process last week and documented the process with parts list. I ordered the suggested parts list plus a few extra. (vent cap and sealing cap).
    You should go to turf torq and look up your actual tranny model for ordering parts. If you don't want to order via the web you need to call them. The number is in the earlier posts provided by LotsofGreenGrass

    Here is a link to the post detailing my order. My drive is a K46V.

    I have recorded my k46 removal. I will post the video of the rebuild/repair and re-install in two additional parts after I do the work. I received the parts today but can't get to it today.
