First time poster, longtime visitor. I have a John Deere 955 with a 72 inch deck. Unfortunately, my gear box on the deck just failed. My guess is that it had a leak and I didn't notice, neither did the dealer who serviced it 2 weeks ago. I tried to find a replacement gear box but my part number AM106078 for my model 575247 deck is unavailable. Mine is a Peerless with two straight shafts while the available gearbox has one that's straight and the other is tapered. I could not find a rebuild kit either. I did find a a used 72 inch deck about 1.5 hrs from where I live but its from an 870 tractor and deck model # 100997. I called my local JD dealer to see if the deck off the 870 would work on my 955 but they could not answer. Just wonder if anyone knew if I could use a deck from an 870 on my 955? Any advice would be appreciated.
