I'd check Craigslist. Go one there, set the max pice on $100 and search lawn tractor. But for a perfect engine it may cost a bit.

Lol you have a welder? And I'm trying to make my double clutch. Get a 12.5 iron sleeve like what I got. Awesome motor runs forever. Lots of torque.

no welder. everything i do to it is bolt on. and since the montgomery frame and the mtd frame are pretty much identicle despite there being 15 years of age between the two. so most mtd parts fit in the ward.im going to swap out the double pulley and mount because the one on the montgomery is rusted and doesnt work right.





i hate vari drive lol

Hey, you got any spare parts for it? I just got an 87 ward too. I need a deck wheel, an air filter, muffler, shifter plate, and seat (foam part). I would trade ya some parts.
