I've got one of those MTD 1844s (: real solid machines, front axles are a bit crappy though.
Awesome work though man (:

hey thanks and what i found was the hardest was the back because of the belt that's why i jacked up the red one because the belt is on the side but the green one has a five speed gear box and has a live axle so it has a chain

Yeah I've been thinking hard about many different designs, I have a few ideas on making a 4x4 machine as well but I need some part first. I got 1 old 2wd ATV with some CV joints, but I need some more mower parts as well. It makes things alot harder when you go up high. That's why I kept my Rally only lifted about 2" in the rear, original belt works fine even tho the pulleys are not lined up.

With a slow ration (stock front pulley, 4" rear) I have no trouble, I dropped the clutch and idler just a bit like 1/4" max. But with fast ratios like my racer they must be within 1/8" or the belt flies off. You can always drop your engine pulley and clutch/idler to match the lift if you have to. There's plenty of ways to do it tho I'm sure.

Ford Boi: Yeah thats the issue im having with the 'mild' mod MTD - kept eating belts, and come to find out the trans pulley sits higher then the variable pulley.

Ill fix that soon enough, cause its going to be alot faster.....

ragb chain drive, make sure every thing is lined up, reinforce stuff overkill is better than not enough, you end up with front axles ripping off and rear axles snapping, make the chain as short as possible if not use chain tensioners they will keep the chain from popping as easy, also make the rear axle adjustible

dropping tranny, use a shaft running off the input shaft and use a bearing up top right under the pulley to keep everything from moving and stable.

so far his green one is an axle eater it snaps axles in half all the time. spend the extra and get 1inch axles my big black one is a chain popper it would pop riding straght down the road. now i put a tensioner on it and beat it back in the mud and didnt pop once
hope this helps any more questions ask either of us
