    Is that a variable speed model? The drive gearbox for those is pricey :(

    The spindle housing shouldnt be a problem.

    Any Bobcat dealer should be able to get the parts for you.

    Hey Rob and Pugs,Can that gear box be rebuilt? I rebuilt the hydro motors and drive motors for my dixon so I think I could rebuilt the box if i had the parts. And yes it is a variable speed model. you guys know what the bit** is? I just put new tires,belts,and did a tune up to it three days ago.

    Sure it can be rebuilt, They have a rebuild kit for 125.60 or the whole gear box for 199.00....depending on time to rebuild the complete unit may be better.

    I would watch what you are getting there. May want to ask them if the parts are made by the company that made the trans...or if they are some aftermarket garbage.

    Yea I know.I have another WB but its an old hydro feris and the motor is blown thanks to my EX guys not checking the oil.Its an old castiron block Kohler. I may tear it down to see how much if any damage was done.I do know the rod let go so i will see how bad it really is.
