That's what i was thinking of doing.but this case split in the front last night. i haven't looked real good yet but from what i did see it looks as if it stripped the threads on the bolts and just lifted the top part of the case. i just don't have the best of luck with the transaxles lol

The bolts in the transaxles use a triangular shaped thread, instead of round. Rethreading the case and using regular full thread bolts will greatly help. If it has already come apart, drill and tap the bottom case to the next larger size, usally 5/16-18 thread, and go to 5/16 18 bolts.
