Question and Answers

Q:

Can I change the fluid in the Dana 4450-1 transaxle on my old Craftsman model 502255020 mower?

A:

The transaxle in your mower does not have oil or fluid in it. The gears, shafts, and any bearing surfaces were packed in grease from the factory.

To replace the grease, you would need to remove the transaxle from the mower, and separate the upper and lower halves.

You can see a parts breakdown of the transaxle at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. Enter 4450-1 for the model number. This will show you what is inside the transaxle. You would need to remove the gears and shafts to wash the old grease from them and out of the lower half of the transaxle.

Use a high quality axle grease and coat everything good before assembling.
