A lot of the gears in the left side of the engine are different, and are in different places. Same for the right side components.

I could never find any free service manuals on countrycat either. It shows $80 on their site. I used the one from mymowerparts when I took my ‘12 550 apart. For my ‘16 Alterra 550 XT I found a free service manual from a google search.

I have the one from my mower parts and it says 550 and 700. When I put the engine back together I’ll note differences and post back. Thanks

No the one on country cat is the same 550/700 one that is on my mower parts. I couldn’t find the one on country cat. I just wanted to check if it was the one I needed. The “like” was just thanking him for the link.

The one on mymower and the one on countrycat are the same and the only 550 listed for the 2012's.
I have a 2013 and it's listed as a 550/1000 service manual. So far it's been spot on for any issue I've needed it for, See if that one helps.
