Stick a fork in it...its done....
Buy a new wheelmotor from J Thomas..and get back to work..
It's probably a 14 cc whell motor, but if it's an 18 cc let me know, as I have had one sitting on the shelf for two years I would let go for a good price. Shipping to Texas might be a little hefty though!
That's what it is.......
I think it is a 14 CC
Do I need the parts Restorob listed or a whole new wheel motor?
I know I need a Hub/flang / key but unclear if the shaft and seal will do it or do I need a wheel motor.
Got the parts ordered. Contacted J Thomas for the wheel motor but had to go to Power Mower Sales for the rest of the parts, flange and other miscellaneous things I decided to order. Both companies were great to work with but I have not gotten an e-mail from J Thomas yet.
Noticed the clear 3/8" clear tube is very stiff. Is this normal or a sign to change it. The mower is a 2006 so I am thinking change it while doing the work. Is this something I can get at Granger or auto zone? New clamps as well?

First things I replace is the clamps

Mower is stored indoors.
I am still looking for clues on the best practice method for replacing this wheel motor.
I am planning on changing the oil and filters at this time even though it only has 300 hours on the last change.
I would to
Best to prime the motor turn by hand
Some might do it different Then me
I jack it up turn the bypass valve after motor has been primed Let the pump run fluid into the motor for a few mins Then turn bypass valve back and run the control to help get air out.
But I have done a hand full 1 motor and 1 pump on my mowers since 1985.
Done more for other people. They see my fleet they know I know how to work on them. Some mad money
One tip buy new pinch nuts (lock nuts) After been removed they wont lock next time 50% time they wont
