Hey, I'm new here, I recently got a 425 which I have been totally refurbing and going through making her pretty and ready for the season.

Anyways the rear (tranny or transaxle) has a leak at one of the rear cover bolts on the tranny. I removed the bolts but the cover won't give. I am guessing due to RTV? Any tips or tricks?

Also does the PTO solenoid have to come out? Any direction there.


The Tuff Torq service manual is very non descript.


Thank you for all the help!!!! Totally appreciated.
