LT230 input side thread holes

can someone tell me if the 2 bolt holes for mounting to R380 on the input mating side (the ones that can leak oil) are supposed to be bolts or studs? Mine has bolt and if they are supposed to be studs, I want to install when I do my Tcase swap. bonus points for PNs.

The are normally bolts. They are M8 bolts, nothing special. You just don't want them too long or they will hit the intermediate gear.

Studs vs bolts...

Have seen both studs and bolts there, but not sure if studs were original and then someone working on it used bolts, but both will work fine.

Think they are M10 1.5 if memory is correct.

It sounds more time consuming, but makes a swap much easier, to remove the final drive gear and round cover, install the unit and then slide the gear on the main shaft and bolt up the cover. Then you are not fighting to line everything up in a parallel state and slide it together on the splines which generally is very difficult.

Looking further, some parts books show a stud, FRC5595.

This is so true. Once you do it this way and realize how much easier it is, you will never do it the hard way again! Plus the drive gear is heavy so the case weighs less with it out and with the PTO cover off it means a nice big opening/hand hold. If you are laying on your back to do the job you will appreciate both these facts.

Noted! So exactly which part are we talking about? The input? Front or rear output? Not clear since I haven't done it before.

My biggest issue has always been getting it in without buggering up the input seal even with pulling the input gear. Careful with the seal.
