247.88255 Transmission Replace?
I may need to put a new transmission in my Craftsman 247.88255. It's got new belts and the cable tension looks OK. Anything else it might be?

Its fairly easy to replace, the hard part is coughing up the $$$ for the part....I have replaced a few of them and best price I can find is on EBay for $130 W/free shipping. I pasted the link to it...Good luck.

If it doesn't move and the belt is tight, it's the transmission. You can turn the pulley and if the axle does not turn, it's the transmission. Real easy job to replace, about 30 minutes.
