Hi everyone, I have a JD 160 and a 165, I would like to know if I can just swap the manual gear drive trans from my 160 and put it into the 165? The 165 has some internal issues with the tranny and needs replaced, but the 160 trans works fine. I am hoping to make 1 nice mower out of the two and the 165 is a much better starting point and in much better condition.
Anyone know if this can be easily done or has anyone else done this and could offer any input? They both visually look identicle and the parts all seem like this would be a simple bolt off bolt on task, but is there something I may be missing or will come upon that won't work? I have all the parts on both, just want to scrap the hydro and put put the manual tranny in.
Thanks in advance
