I have a JD X324 with about 900 hours on the unit.

the transaxle, a K58, is making no longer moving the mower. After checking belts, pulleys and idlers, it appears the old girl is dying.

Is it feasible to upgrade to a k-66, or would it be more prudent to try installing a kit to repair the existing unit?

Howdy woundedknees, welcome to the tractor forum.

There are conversion kits for this purpose. See attached. Considering the price, I think I would try a kit in the K58.

Thanks for the response... Proud of the kit, aren't they?

2billt, you were spot on. I should have checked that first!
I was able to accomplish the job without dropping the transaxle or pulling the seat and fender deck.

On a somewhat related note, are there any better quality cooling fans available for the K58, rather than JD OEM?
I replaced the existing fan due to the blades bowing into the path of the drive belt and shearing off.
The OEM direct replacement I obtained did the same thing shortly after I got the 324 reassembled!
