The axle half-shaft? I think it would break, if not bend. There a hardened Metal and when you weld it it isn't as strong

It works. Trust me. Back before my ATLTF.com days, I fixed a statesman that did that. it ended up snapping the case when a rock busted the bottom of it off..

But that's a grass cutter, I wouldn't want a axle snap at 21mph.

It's not fun if you don't break some stuff I guess, just not every 5 seconds of course...

Strech, This time dont tell him to do wheelies! I Will switch to an 820 in time, since i got a job now, start on jan 1st so i will have money coing in and then it going into the Bolens. So eventually get ready to prep my 820 and drop that 25 v or my 18 oppy in!

Looks fun lol, btw anyone try to NOT weld lock a diff, but to fill it with rubber bands or some similar junk you may have laying around.
Like leftover stuff, and make an Unlimited slip-differential:?: Question Question Question Exclamation  Razz

Watch out tho. He always finds a way to break everything. He was probably the iceberg that sank the Titanic..

The Bolens lives again. Cut the old axle out the diff, and welded in a new one. He was out doing snow donuts just fine. Played on ours some, but TRB's starter/battery was giving us fits.

Well it didnt last long being unbroken.. I let Chris ride it and BOOM! flips it. Breaks off the exhaust. Thank God the engine is fine. So I just threw on some stock pipe from another engine since it fit and didnt interfere with anything. I will build a new one, probably tomorrow.

Here is after the wreck..
Pipe I threw on just so we could ride, we were pulling around a sled..
Then started on the front bumper. Had some bumper my grandpa made a while back for his quad i think and cut the ends down..
Welded two pipes on it so i can weld them to my mower but ran out of weldeing wire before i could finish. So more pics tomorrow!!

Throw a bumper on the rear, for push starting, and getting pushed out of a hole...

Hate to say I told ya so on that exhaust... anything that sticks out like that should be braced. Lucky the block is OK.

Got a picture of the bumper installed and one of the new exhaust as well!


This is a staged pipe I got in a trade a while back that was just laying around. Cut it and welded the flange where i needed it. Clears the tire by just a hair at the full turn but i rarely go that far so its all good.
