    Possible to use a 185 SC as a rebuild core for a 215???

    Buddy's 215 SC ate a bearing and made wall contact so its toast but I have an old 185 SC I don't need......Is it possible to get a complete rebuild kit for a 215 (including gear)and rebuild the 185 just reusing the impeller and housing.......just curious if theres some minor differences in housing dimensions or impeller shaft size that would keep the project from being simple

    They're the same except for the gear.185 has a 17 tooth, 215 has a 16 tooth.

    depending on the year, youll have to use the washers in the rebuild kit to space the housing away from the pto cover. its in the directions though

    If the baseplate part number 867 163 then you will need to use the 3 spacer washers.....The number can be found on the back of the back housing...
