Finished fixing my 1998 Craftsman tiller after I let someone borrow it and the transmission froze up and rusted because they left it outside for a week or so.

Opening up the frozen transmission.

Cleaned all the old grease out, removed rust, and put a new coat of paint inside and out.

Two new bearings and a gasket.

The old bearing disintegrated! I thought it was a bushing until I looked up the parts manual.

Power shaft needed a new bearing too.

Used Red N Tacky for the transmission. Works excellent and sticks to the gears.

Used almost the entire jar! Fun :D
