Finally took the Spicer out to weld the spider gears and put a new hub on one side. I'm going to rebuild the drive-shaft and make it how its supposed to

be already have the drive-shaft grinded off so it shouldn't be long until I have that done I just need to order a new pillow block bearing. Also when I get

some rims for my two new tires i just got I'm gonna put my 22s in the front to give it nice look. I will post pics over the next couple days on my progress

Today I decided to weld the drive-shaft together and weld in the 3/4 shaft collar onto my pulley. My uncle told me not to weld the spider gears and

keep it stock because he did it before and broke it and he told me it cost way to much to fix. I also replaced the old long drive-shaft and welded the

other hub to the other side. Now I have to figure out how high my pulley has to go so I can cut the drive-shaft so its short enough to fit. Right now

its too long. then I have to order my pillow block bearing so i can put the drive-shaft together. lastly my new magneto that I just got doesn't fit so I

have to drill some holes into it so it will fit where it needs to go and hopefully that will work.

Dirtbike, snowmobile, motorcycle carbs should give a ton more throttle response/power - youd need to make a flange to hook it to the motor tho - or simply use an old radiator hose with hose clamps - just make sure it doesnt bounce around a lot - needs to be stable.

Did anyone know that parts off some weight benches can be used on racing mowers i found that out today. its sweet it bolts right into the stock place. You just need some spindles for it.

I wouldn't fork out $40k on that thing. You couldn't even drive it on the street(you probably wouldn't want to considering the tires are probably $2,000 a corner).

I wouldn't spend that much either on something like that but it doesn't mean I don't want it.

Its not street legal , mainly for the tire size ( width) - ive seen some lifted trucks around tho. Heck used to see a lifted lincoln ( donk style) around the corner on 26" wheels with low profile tires - thing couldnt get out of its own way tho .


Id say its probably worth the $40K - for all the work the guy put into it - those military axles arent cheep - neither are those tires.

Id prefer to show off a truck on pavement or a dirt road rather then a float trailer or a flatbed, you get more attention that way:P

I have a friend who had 48" military tires on his truck on a 2005 F350, he was asking $30,000 for it last year, It was a sick truck, probably a 4ft drop from the floor of the truck and it was street legal, he used it to tow trailer, he had a custom 2 1/2ft drop hitch made.
I saw some tires like whats on that chevy for sale in a flier today(might not be exact, they were 66"x43" tires) for $4000 for 4 of them and they were used off of a harvester.

ok how come when I put my transaxle back together with the new grease in it the mower is now harder to push around is it just because the grease needs to be worked in

im pretty sure thats the reason, I know Fearless fronts video on locking the transaxle he said that the transaxle will be stiffer after putting it back together(I was expecting that was because it was locked) but it could be from the new grease.

That happened with my kleen kut - the brass bushings have a lil index pin( sometimes) - if those arent set right it can mess with the trans- whenever i pushed it around in neutral it was a pain to push - had it apart 4 times afterwards and still does it .

My tranny was stiff for a little after I took it apart. Once you take it out and use it for a little, It'll loosen up. Nice going on your mower.
