Me and my grandaughter restored a 2003 Lt 150 last fall. I added a seat so she could ride up front with me. We had a great time going to the "tractor store " and working on it and finaly using it to cut grass, vacume up leaves, and plow all the retired nieghbors driveways. well this past week we were cutting grass and all of a sudden we heard a bang in the rear end. The dealer says the transaxle is 650 new. So i have been exaustingly looking for a used axle. if any one knows of a jd salvage yard or anyone who is parting one out. please let us know. Also is there is any way to upgrade this axle so this doesent happen again.
