    I tied to span the ft/lbs and in/lbs gaps between torque wrenches as best I could. I think I did good. I'm going to have to find a good torque chart for torqueing steel bolts in aluminum castings. I can't find one that has all types of aluminum made. I suppose you have guess.

    I pact the gears on one side in three tubes of $14 a tube syn grease from the place that sold me the new gears.... I put all three tubes of the $14 grease in the left side, 1 1/2 tubes didn't cover them in grease. Then I remembered talking to a guy at a different parts business and he said to use white lithium, it's what the pictures look like was in them from the factory. I tested both transmissions after the mower mowed 3 acres of lawn and both transmissions were around 110 -112 degrees, well under white lithium's top temp, so no more $14 a tube grease for me. The white lithium was like $3 a pound. .... I would worry the oil would melt the grease lowering/changing it's heat range.
