popped the cap off the agitator, yanked the sealed lid out the tube, lefty loosey the bolt with 1/2" socket, 8" extension and ratchet. Pulled off agitator, tossed old parts, cleaned surfaces, applied petroleum jelly to cogs, inserted into new drive body, snapped together, and reassembled.

Immediately overloaded the washer to thoroughly & properly test it to real world conditions.
Its quieter now than 15 years ago, or I'm going deaf, or both.
Thanks again
