When it comes to locating the proper part for an appliance can be challenging. While you are waiting for a detailed reply from an expert I recommend visiting the Sears parts direct website were you can view a full parts list and diagram of your model as well you may find a direct number to speak with a parts associate in regards to getting the proper part. I have provided the link below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I have looked up the numbers you have submitted. I tried to find the specifications on the transaxles but did not have any luck. Without out the specs I can only give you my opinion. I looked at the parts and from what I can tell, the two are the same. If you are purchasing this from a private party, I recommend taking your old transaxle with you. Then you will be able to compare the two side by side. If you ca buying it on line, I recommend asking them for the mounting measurement and axle information. Then you can see if yours is the same.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
