mini pro 575 question

    Has anyone ever rebuilt a transmission on a mini pro 575? I bought a spreader that has sat around for awhile and the bearings in the transmission were seized. I oiled everything and broke it loose but it doesnt feel right. So, If anyone has any expertise on this I would love to hear it. Thanks

    I just wanted to update my post in case anyone else ever runs into this. The transmission or gear box is rebuildable if you just need new bearings. I removed the spinner shaft and got the old bearings to press out. I went to a local bearing supplier and got new ones for 32 bucks.The gears were fine. I installed the new bearings and it all works great. Sure beats 300 for a new one. Alot of the snow ex tail gate spreaders run the same transmission or a similar style.If anyone wants to attempt this in the future than just shoot me a pm and I will walk you through it.
