154 transmission installation question

Postby RonT » Mon Oct 28, 2019 6:30 pm

I removed the transmission from my recently acquired 154 to rebuild it. I gathered up all of the gaskets, seals, bearings and gears that I believe I need.
Following the service manual, I removed the finals from the transmission and then pulled the transmission.
My question is why the service manual has you assemble the finals to the transmission in the frame. After pulling it apart and getting it out, it was apparent that the finals and transmission could be assembled on the bench and slid it as an assembly with proper rigging to the engine hoist.

Has anyone tried this and had problems?

Thanks
Ron

Sort of. I unbolted the transmission/differential from the frame, jacked up the frame, rolled the rear end out of the tractor.

That is the procedure cited in GSS-1408, the Service Manual.
I have an excuse. CRS.

You can’t just assemble the 154 finals in the frame like an fcub. You need to drop the assembly down like on a cub cadet I just did. The finals are held captured by the top frame bolts.

Much easier to remove the whole assembly from the tractor then disassemble it.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Like Eugene said, I never took my finals when I replaced some gears. The whole assembly comes out and rolls around on its wheels, just like it says to handle it in the service manual.
