As some of you know my G10 suffered what I believed was a fatal failure in the transmission.
Broken axle. After consulting with you guys I found out its possible to swap tranny's so that was the route I decided to take. After a trip to Dave's place aka..Old Buzzard...to pick up a donar G10. I started in on the operation. IMG_20141011_080004.jpg IMG_20141011_161759.jpg IMG_20141011_161723.jpg IMG_20141011_161733.jpg
If you ever get a chance to stop by Old Buzzard,s place you have to do so. His collection is VERY extensive. He's got it all! Thanks again for the donar G10. So I got both rear ends off and I was a bit disheartened when I looked inside the donar transmission. 3 of the gears are a bit chewed up. gears.jpg
So here's my dilema. The gears in my G10 are pristine but the axle is shot. The donar G10 has a good axle but chewed up gears. Is it easy to change it these gears? Or do I put the tranny on with dodgy gears and hope it works? Decisions ...decisions!

I can't tell you how to do step by step that would just be to much,get a manual would be your best bet.If it were mine I would take both apart,keep every thing seperate and pick the best parts from both of them and build a good one from there.

And take a lot of pictures when taking them apart so you have something to refer back to.

Buzzards never leave anything but the bones...
Actually, I left most of it :D :D :D

The story behind that G10 is that a fella stopped in one day and asked if I wanted a G10. He said that it lost spark, and he thought it was the ignition, and that he didn't;t want to fool with it.

I asked him what he wanted, and he said nothing, I just want it gone, and don't want to take it to a junk yard if someone else can use it of the parts from it..

So the next day he dropped it off.

I was needing a starter/generator, so I kept that.

When 68 said he needed some G10 parts, I PMed him and told him that he could have it, all he would have to do is come and get it.

He did have to wait until I got back from the last road trip though.

I vote for combining the best parts to make one good transmission. The bonus is that by the time you're done you will be an expert on these transmissions. If you put it together with those bad gears you will always be worrying about when it will jam up on you.

If all that is bad in yours just swap the axles not a hard job and you will not need to remove any gears to do it.

Really Bob? I thought I needed to tear everything out to get to the axle? Anyways.... because time is of the essence( I.e. the leaf season is here) and I have 10acres to keep leaf free via a track vac, I elected to take a chance on the donar transmission and give it ago. I can always swap stuff around in the spring. I got both tranny's swapped and was just about ready to fire the G10 up when a slight? big? Pain in the neck problem prohibited me from testing her out. The pesky drive pin is stuck! Like rusted/welded in place. I've had this problem before and in took days before I could free it up so I guess this one is going to be no different.
