Any thoughts on this idea?
I am not sure on how hard I can hit it without cracking the casting.

While doing my research I have learned I have a Tuff Torq 46 tranaxle.
But I am unable to find an exploded parts drawing of this tranaxle.
I would like to see what it is I am trying to do.
But Tran Torq is pretty close to the vest with info.
The Youtubes I watched were no help.
Does anyone have an idea where I can get a drawing?

It seem pretty extreme to remove and open it for such a simple problem.
Just take any hammer that will shock it where you hit it use a long 3/4" metal or aluminum rod if the reach is a problem...

just don't hit it so hard you punch a hole in it but it will take a good hard blow

And yes it is complicated more so than the drawings so if you have never been into one it is not suggested to even try, especially if you never been in one... you will end up scrapping it or buying a new one but new mower would be cheaper

Default addditional info

First, thanks for the drawing.
It should help my confidence.
What part number am I trying to move?

Second. I don't know if I made this clear, but this problem is as of first puling it out of over the winter storage.
In other words, it has been free wheeling since the winter.
Could the cold affected it somehow?

Default Tractor is MIA

An overdue update.

I went out on Sat AM to pound on the trans.
The tractor was not in its parking spot.

It turns out SWMBO got tired of me and my boy arguing over what to do next and called the local small engine shop to come get and fix it !

10 days and $300.00 later (That includes a $100 pick up and deliver charge)
I have it back. With sharpened blades and a new battery.

The problem was low to no oil in the trans.

Ouch. That'll leave a mark.
