I know its not a very good idea to use an mtd off the grass but ive decided to turn my white into a mud mower, it is a 7 speed shift on the go, does anyone have any tips on pulley swaps steering etc. its survived so far so i want to see how far i can go!

You could try to do a 1.1 gear ratio.
Like a 4 on front and 4 on back.

I actually did that but i havn't had a chance to try it because i put a deck pulley on the front and tested it and when i did i had the 9 in i believe on the back and the old back belt shreded, i also am having a hard time getting it to shift, ive taken it apart 6 times since i went to lock the diff and i cant seem to get the shifter in the right position

Well throw some chains on there and take it out! If something breaks or doesn't preform the way you want it to, fix it from there.
My dad had a MTD, used it as a pulling tractor to pull large loads of wood up steep hills. It was a great tractor, I still have it. They are cheaper, but they're still useful!
