    The fluid looked good coming out, but I think they put the filter on with an impact. The strap wrench crushed it before removing it.

    Also found the exacts leak.

    Iíll try welding it.
    If the pipe is thin, try brazing, many muffler shops do it that way.

    I appreciate the tip, but for this if I canít fix it easily Iíll just get a new one. I hope I can weld enough in place to remove it as one piece.

    Man can they fit anything more under the smaller tractors to take off to get to the problem? I have noticed a $20 Grand Tractor with everything on it and there is no room to get to the middle with out taking the outside off! Glad I got lots of room to do stuff to my 4044M. Bad enough I can't see the engine in my Truck from the stuff they put on top of it in the way to work on it!

    Rolled out the 265 today and cut my grass then cut the neighbors.. With all the obstacles and moving stuff it took me 1 1/2 hours for about 3/4+ acre. I drove it back up into the shed and was wondering how hot the transaxle fluid got with all the forward and reverse I was doing. To my surprise it was barely warm.. I could grab the rearend anywhere and it was not hot at all.. I thought for sure it would be warmer than that. Really glad to know it stays cool for the kind of work it's doing...

    I have found that the transaxle temperature varies greatly with the ambient temperature and the load on the transmission - more so than how many times you transition from forward to reverse. On my X500 unless it is a very warm day the transaxle barely gets above ambient after mowing. However, if I am pulling my 900 lb. lawn roller on a warm day the transaxle will get almost too hot to touch. But... pulling that same roller on a 50-degree day the transaxle barely gets warm.

    Thank you, good to know. It was about 78 degrees out while I was cutting. During the summer months when it's in the 90's every day I only cut in the mornings while it's still cool.. The yards are mostly flat as well.. I didn't know what to expect with this being the most work it has done since I got it.. The only thing that will work harder is the engine when I start cutting thick wet grass in another month.. I'll do another oil change before then..

    Still haven't taken the snowblower attachment off yet, but there's 3" of snow on the ground right now so I'll keep waiting.

    Finishing up all my spring dirt work before I swap the wheels, loader and box blade for the 60" deck. Grass cutting is about a week away!
