My neighbors Toro PP starting acting up, grinding, I knew the ft. tranny went out, he has had the mower since 06. Tranny was replaced last year in March. He asked me if I could fix it, of course I said yes, just get the part. Took about an hour and it was back to its great self. 3rd tranny!!! Anyway what is the deal with this part, its made in Mexico, is this why they don't last? He paided me $10.00 for the install/////////// guy just turned 83!!!
