I bought this at the junkyard from a jacobsen. RAGB F-N-R tranny. kinda a secret plan for this thing as a spring project.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 19 15265610

On a side note, i think i found a 633 or something like that axle with 3 bolt hubs on it. cast iron-maybe. Will they work on my 820? they have set scres so it doesnt slide back and fourth. Id need a puller to bring to the junkyard, maybe they will come off.

I think the transaxle I pilfered off a lawnchief at the scrap yard is an 820. A 3 speed...
I got it for a spare incase the one under the craftsman decides to die.

The 633 you found is probably a 1200 like mine, usesthe same spider gears as the 820. Take the wheels off and pound on the back side of the hub and it will some off.. either it will come off or the axle will come with it like one of mine did

820 almost together. Not in a rush but glad not to have parts everywhere.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 19 15662_10

Now plain and simple, im making a winch for my tractor. the foote was a perfect subject for this. Very small and everything checks out in it.
Its going to have its own belt system and run off the engine. Have its own clutch to engage and dis engage. then the chain off it to the axle or jackshaft i made that will hold the spool drum.

This was the speed mowers original axle.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 19 52456510
Cut the end of the axle off and fought the sized axle bushing. Got if off with a bfh.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 19 16256710
Bazinga! everything apart. obviously need to trim the axle when i figure out mounting points.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 19 15136610
Here's moc up. Tranny and jack-shaft will be moved forward a little. Probally moving lights, no biggie. just everything set on there. Original grease zerks works friggin amazing, and i cleaned the axle a little and greased everything and they work flawlessly! I think these will work great concitering the drum will rarely be moving compared to stock.
