    I need to do mine, leaking some oil out the top.I'm guessing an O ring on a shaft is the problem.

    Did it stop moving? I have an x320 that is starting to "whine" when I point it up something steep. It is getting slower and slower on climbs.

    My JD 345 (1999 year) still running fine with the factory unit. I thought I was smart back in 2002 when I bought a new Tuff Torg K70A in a wooden crate for $560.00. I still have it for replacement in case the original one goes. I have 970 hours on the JD 345 and transmission, so, I may never have to use the one in the crate. If I ever sell the 345 the new one will go with the tractor and mower

    This one ran fine. Just leaking from seam and axle seals. I suspect it may have got hot at one time or another. So just a reseal. The rest of the machine was in great shape.
