Tuff Torq K71 K72 interchangeability?
Looking for information on the Tuff Torq K71B, which is in a GT245 (2003 model year). Are there other transaxle hydro's that will fit into the GT225 GT235 or GT245? Specifically will the K71C, which has differential lock fit? Any other info?
Has anyone measured the bolt patterns on any of these transaxles? Specifically the K71 and K72? Has anyone looked at the K71 series and K72 series Tuff Torq Kanzaki transaxles to see if the mounting bolt patterns are the same? Are there any differences where frame clearances would have to be modified? Does anyone have side by side photo's with mounting bolt dimensions for these two series?
Which transaxles are similar enough to each other to fit into which machine? Has anyone tried to change out the K71B, K71C or K72 with the others? Or, does anyone have some of them they are selling to compare dimensions? I e-mailed tuff torq and never got a definitive answer, seems the JD stuff is sold proprietory to John Deere.
