    Keep in mind that the "early" Gearbox he is referring to is a reverse rotaion from the one crrently in use in Walker mowers. Previously the engine was facing the other direction and the pto was not driven off the flywheel end. Blt in a new one and the bades and blower spin backwards!:hammerhead:

    The gearbox shell is sold by walker. Check your dealer/distributor. I have one left over after a trade-in unit was scrapped.

    I'll have the # in an hour when I get in the office.

    hello, explanation of pto box
    3 shaft box ,input shaft
    output shaft 1 end drives deck other end drives blower belt.

    2 shaft box is 4 the non ghs units [delete shaft tip 4 blower pulley]

    variation to this is the reverse rotation box [this is 4 the diesel ]
    available in 2 or 3 shaft

    In approx 2000 the input shaft changed design to accomodate the larger bearings. Configuration of shafts is the same as above but only the output shaft is common with the older design.

    Hair line cracks are in my housing mainly around bolt lugs. The lugs r very thin walled . Never happened b4 [ over hauled 5 years ago ok spline was shot] Currently minor leak at input shaft seal surface
    Yes it was tension to spec
