Looks like you had a blast! that craftsman made it pretty far before it died... lol! What did it have for a trans? And do you know what broke in it? CARNAGE! CARNAGE! CARNAGE! Twisted Evil

If it was the stock trans- was probably due to break- mine did after doing speed runs down the street .

I missed my chance to go mudding earlier this year - ah well, maybe once my murrays done can find somewhere to go.

Awesome pics!

Wow 12 trannys, it's funny that i've try'd so hard to break my posi tranny thats now in my street murry and never could break it.
I've never broke any tranny, i've broke the wooddrift keys before but never any internals.

Wow looks like you guys had fun lol. As for trannys, I used to go thru them like they were disposable, until I finally realized well maintained oil level (80W90) is a must. I used to strip the teeth off the input gears all the time, but now I never have that problem anymore, I am running trannys that have been working perfect for 3-4 years. Also when you're mudding that hardcore, there's a good chance you're taking in water / silt into the case. Good idea to tear them down regularly and check / clean.

The funny bit about the agway is the one axle seal is worn out, i ran that thru water n mud up to the foot rests for years , when i did the inital pulley change i realized there actually was no oil in the trans when i went to change it- i think its been that way since i bot it from my buddy way back in the 90's. I put oil in it- ill see if itll stay in there- i still have to change that seal sometime when i eventually finish it.

Only trans i ever wrecked was in the craftsman LT12- had that thing up to 20 plus mph and eventually locked it up and broke teeth off the pinons. That was a 'failure to take it apart n regrease it' issue .

nahh sorry we dont stripp teeth or anything, i have a problem with all my rearends shifting, i put oil, grease, seal them but never wants to shift, exept the tranny thats in it now it wont stay in gear now my buddy he definately doesnt strip teeth or anything like that

he busts them in half

live axle busted on monster mower( custom rear steer problems)

custom independent suspension


thats just some of the breaks weve had, ive had one the shifing locked up on me in a lake a mile away from my camp. also ive had one blow a hole in the back of the case from the reverse chain and ran it for half a year like that. i ripped my gearbox out of my monstermower hitting it hard through some deep mud

id say either go with a 1 1/4" straight axle or heavy duty trans from a Cub cadet - shaft drive. Go extreme and use a rear axle from a toyota truck ( shortened) .
