Well my aluminum gearcase on the 1978 924040 (large wheel no diff. 24 bucket) finally let go today. So I ordered the cast iron shooting match for $200, I guess you have to pay to play. :eek: Owned the machine since new, and except for bearings and tires this is the only expense.

So the impeller had to be pressed off by a machine shop. Now I'm ready to put it back together. Any tips? Should I lube the axles or squirt them full after assembly? Must be some tricks to make this whole thing easier.

Glad to hear. That looks great in there. Should be good to go for another 40 years now.

Did you have to put it in something like a shoppress to remove the impeller from the shaft? How did you get it to come off? Thank You.

Either a torch, or quite a bit of PB Blaster and a BFH, or a pipe as a sleeve on the shaft and the same BFH. (Big Freaking Hammer).

Yes repair clinic for 189 was the source of the assembly. I paid 40 top have a shop heat and press off the impeller after the pins were pulled. Went together very easily. I might have been able to pull the impeller with a gear puller but I had time bc I had to wait for the parts.
