So I took the transmission out of my ‘gifted’ snowblower since it was totally seized after sitting close to 7 years.. got the Briggs motor running like a champ... now before I open up the transmission, can someone give me some tips? I.e. what kind of grease to use, do’s and donts, am I in over my head? Local toro dealers won’t touch this thing with a 10 foot pole..

If they wont touch it I would find another Toro dealer.
I agree. Just kind of depends on if you have the desire, skills, time and tools to tackle it yourself. You might not need a dealer except for parts and even then you might be able to find them as easily and cheaper on line. A lot of us have PowerShifts and can walk you through most adjustments or repairs. Powershift93 has two and he's a great resource.

One of the best machines ever built......the tranny is time consuming but not to bad to rebuild......mostly just wire brushing the gears and shafts to get rust off, then packing new grease in.....

Thanks for the input everyone! I rolled up my sleeves and did it! You’re right, it’s a little time consuming, but really not that difficult at all when you have the YouTube video for guidance and a Sherpa like powershift93! Lol
