    Yes, the tractor has to be split into. Actually it is a very easy job. If you can get hold of a floor jack that you can roll, put it under the transmision facint the rear. Wedge or stablize the front to the axle so it won't tip to one side or the other and support it under the bell housing. A few linkages from the brakes and clutch and maybe some tinwear and hyd lines and it should be separated very easily.
    Good luck.

    Glad you live in KY. I had an L245DT and boy do I miss it, need to pet yours. My wife wishes she had hers back. I went to some higher hp and she isn't comfortable with them like she was with the 245.
