In normal service, you can get something like 20 years (!) of life out of
transaxle without even changing the oil. However, I have changed the oil
another brand of garden tractor, and it used about 4 pts. of 90W to get to
fill level plug. There were no filings in the oil at all.

Subject: (ET) Transaxle Service
Thanks for the help with locating belts for the tractors! I am going to
order them from Technical Services. I like to support them, and their
prices seem to be at least as good as anyone else.
Does anyone know what "regular" service should be performed on the
large-frame tractors transaxles? I have 4 tractors, and, as far as I
know, none of the transaxles have ever been serviced.
Strangely enough, I found a Tecumseh/Peerless Mechanic's Handbook (c
1977) at a yardsale. It seems to cover the transaxle used on the
tractors (2300 series -- does that sound right?), but only seems to have
information on rebuilding the transaxle, not on maintenance. It says to
fill the transaxle though the shift lever opening with 4 pints of SAE
E.P. 90 oil. Does that sound right? Any suggestions?
If there is any interest in this manual, I might be able to scan the
relavent pages and e-mail them.
