Dana Spicer Transaxle

This year’s mower maintenance took an unexpected turn. The brake cam on the transaxle was loose in its bore. The obvious solution was to bore and bush the hole. Luckily, the bore was worn evenly enough that it could be indicated without moving the centerline significantly. The bore measured .505 and the shaft .498. The bushing measured .501 after being pressed in. After machining, proper fit was restored.
