This tractor i got for free, when i got it the engine was seized,clutch didnt work, gas tank had no cover and had at least an inch of mud gas and whatever else, the fuel pump didn't work, the recoil wasn't working, both front tires were flat, the steering was seized, and the gas line was shot. but after a week of working on it i got everything working and running great and to this day i haven't put a penny into it... other than gas and oil.

Cool. So you are just lifting it with tires then, and not like big pieces of angle and literally lifting it and keeping the tires the same.

That transaxle looks like one I left at the scrap yard... went back for it today... it might have still been there but they had pushed the stuff all up in a pile... Wah...

Nah, we didnt scrap it... we was offloading a couple engine blocks and there were a few transaxles and a gearbox.
I did snag the gearbox though, a Foote 3 speed. There was a big beefy transaxle there, 4 or 5 bolt pattern, but I dont know if those kind are any good or not? I dont see many people using them...
