Dixon ZTR 428 Transaxle Repair Help Needed

am 12.07.2006 20:38:53 von RD

I have the above mentioned and the left pivot bolt (PN 2166) broke in half
causing an almost complete loss of power on the left drive side. It looks
fairly simple to replace, and I have ordered a new bolt and locknut, but I
wanted to get an expert opinion on the repair if possible. My questions are:

1) How do you know when the pivot bolt is inserted far enough into the
discup cradle pivot bushing?
2) Should I also replace the pivot bushing? If so, how to you get the old
bushing out of the cradle housing?
3) Are there any alignment procedures that should follow this type of
repair? If so, would anyone have a manual handy that could be emailed?

Please advise. Thanks!
RD

is the 'right pivot bolt' working OK? judge by that one. alternately,
post images online for -better- advice...

if it's worn...

is the bushing plastic? oillite? sometimes they'll just 'fall out', or
can be driven out easily with a punch...there ARE other methods.

probably not, unless you suspect a bent frame, OR bent steering
member...OR unless the steering 'is binding' after you reassemble it
If so, would anyone have a manual handy that could be emailed?
not me. have you tried looking on dixon's site?
