HydroStatic Transmission Repair
The Sovereign and HB112 Transaxle:
Vicker Hydrostatic Pump:
Vickers - Service Parts Catalog
Vickers - Hydrostatic Vehicle Transmissions
Note: A common problem is the leaky pintle shafts in Vickers T-6 pumps. To fix this you need to rebuild pump by rebushing and install new O-rings. The Vickers kit part number is 1-923428, but it's been said that these kits are no longer available from Vickers. It's been said you can fix these with o-rings from Lowes as long as shafts and case are ok. Some have said that while apart can modify internals for more speed, but I'm not sure how.
