Dixon 428 drive cone replacement

flattopfredJune 23, 2009

Anyone ever tackled the job of replacing the cones in a Dixon standard transaxle and the re-adjusting of the whole thing? How bad is it? Or is it bad at all?

Well the really bad news is that with a 428 you have to take the body off and put it back on to try out OR make a test seat. (plus it is old)

Email me at address below, put in proper format, and I will send you some pages on adjustment etc. Thirty years experience.

No, would still love the information. I tried sending 4 different e-mails to your address but they kept coming back saying undeliverable. I did put your address in the correct format. Can you send me the address again so I can check it? I did not re-post because i did not think you would get the mssg. Any help will still be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Sorry about that. I do not post my actual address because of the "Crawlers" that harvest email addresses automatically from such forums for Spam. OK, I see the problem, I left out the 5 again.
