Ive seen dynamarks and MTD's with the huskee name on them - its either a different model name from AYP or stores that sell them - like yardman, mastercut , white, ect.

Stamped steel, bolt together frames are pretty weak angle iron reinforcement is usually a good thing. Some (like me) go to a full tube steel frame.

Anything you can do to stiffen the chassis helps in holding thind together.

Even if your weld are perfect, I really would plan on adding some supports for the front axle, It's never fun to hit a rock and slam your work into the ground...I do a little sword work and a while back I had the sord breakoff directly after the weld, SO I hope it wouldnt happen on a bigger scale like this.

Are they bolt or clip?

Either way, the way I got my tires off my MTD FNR axle was to take the bolt off the end, and using a grooved piece of metal (like angle iron, I used a metal green fence post) and nestle it over the inner shaft of the rim from the backside and tapped on it till my tire popped off.

Can be hard though. Might want to wait and see if anybody has anything better to say.



Be sure that when you put your rim back on the axxle to use never-seize or some grease to help with it not sticking.

Sounds like the end of the axle might be mushroomed a bit. It could be just a ridge caused by the wheel moving a bit on the axle.

Slide the wheel back and file the ends of the axles to make sure there is no ridge or something holding them back.

Had the same problem on a PTO shaft the while back. Had to get inside the U joint with a die grinder and grind the end of the axle down a bit

I had the same problem trying to fit an 18hp oppy twin under the hood of my racer (which originally had an 11hp single. I made a large cutout along each side of the hood, and filled it in with a flared out section. If you want, you can just make the cutouts and leave it at that.
