got to looking a little closer at your transaxle, your putting alot of stress on it with having the tires out so wide, if it was mine I would try to move some of the spacers on the axle so that the tires will slide on farther. would hate to see your tranny bust like doc sprockets. just my 2 cents

So this weekend was a christmas tractor parade that MM and I were shooting to get into, but on the day of this started having big problems, belt, tires and engine. 20 minutes before it started we got it going, i got a a need for speed and put er in 4th, and went round 17 then i wanted to go into 5th. Belt comes off then it wont stay on even in 1st. New retainers and gets half way down my driveway (length of 5 acres) belt pops off, happened two more times. So i missed the parade Sad But i fixed that and the engine didnt want to have all that strain of a 1-1 ratio on a 820 with 26x12x12 ag tires burning out of my shop so why not put the 16 hp magnetron oppy off the ford on er? All she needs it the pulley and the carb to be cleaned!!! So close i can feel it

Well having the original engine flood out and have gas spit out of the carb wont help. MM told me in chat.

Yeah I did so I could fit the oppy, then me being me I've switched the engine like 5 times since I've finally made up my mind on the kohler vtwin. I welded a pulley for it yesterday, now all I need is a belt, the front end, steering, and a starter that I'm getting for free this weekend!

What did you do to ensure both sides were even? Or did you just eyeball it and and call it good?

Im going to have to cut out my craftsman hood to fit the oppy... Id like it to be even as possible.
