I was finally able to lift the handle enough after drilling out the screw to get the handle puller under the handle and was able to remove it.

O.K. thanks. I was looking at Lowes. Doesn't appeal to me as much as the Toro. I have had 2. Before this one with the shot transmission I had a push Super Recycler. Nice alloy deck.

The Husqvarna version I see has a Briggs and Stratton. Guess I am more interested in the value of AWD in a lawnmower?

I finally was able to drop the transmission. The top pulley, pinion and conical gear fell right off the top of the transmission. I assume the bearing is somewhere down inside the transmission cavity....

Thanks again, Cheese.

With $50-$70 for the transmission, new V-belt and perhaps new pulleys, rear wheels and gears, $399 for an all new unit sounds like a better investment. Then I could dumb down...

Yup. Just went out and checked it again. The entire pulley with shaft wobbles over an inch off center in each direction. I have looked at a lot of the videos and believe the transmission to be toast....
