I'm just about ready to give my A608 an overhaul, I have most of my parts that I'm going to need all except for one. I'm trying to find the 211484 Lug washer for the transmission. If anyone has a spare kicking around I'd be more than happy to purchase it.

Haven't torn it apart yet but I was under the impression that it was a maintenance part if you are tearing into the transmission for a overhaul. If I don't have to replace that even better.

I have never seen a bad one, the only things you usually need to replace is the oil, lower oil-seal O ring, cover gasket and we often replaced the entire top transmission cover with the agitator shaft & bearings.


Often water gets into the agitator shaft bearings and ruins them as well as problems with corrosion of the plating on the agitator shaft itself.

Thanks John, I'll be tearing into this next week. I don't think there's much wrong with the trans other than needing a good oil change. The o-ring I probably already have, if not I can source locally.
