Here is the new layout my neighbor and i came up with today, Im going to extend the frame a few inches and weld some angle iron or tube steel down the frame to have a sturdy support to mount the transmission and transfer case to.

Don't count on it. Your neigbour could have low compression. Your starter's bushings could be dry and dragging, bad brushes, whatever. Lotsa possibilities.
It's very likely the valve lash has gone outta spec or the starter is ailing. Hell, could even be a poor electrical connection.

does anybody have any advise for removing the rear axle from the truck?
Yes- bring a torch!

Or a big guy with a breaker bar, and a piece of pipe. Glad you got it out

An angle grinder worked just fine.

I went and tightened the steering up real good on the craftsman for now. I just need to figure out how to mount the transfer case and tranny in there.

Is a 10 horse going to be big enough for such a big tractor?
