I've seen that rear axle but have no clue what it is. Do you?

Also getting a gas pedal, and governor disconnected. Deck is getting sold, and all deck hardware removed. Adding a recoil to it.

Got it to run!  Puttered around the yard some, probably could fix couple little things, and mow with it!  Steering is the best stock steering I've seen, it's tight, smooth, and turns sharp.

Pics of a size comparison to the silver bullet.  It's decently smaller, not quite a mini, but still small.

Great score! Looks very solidly build, and one heck of a transaxle!

This was wheelhorse's heavy duty vertical shaft lawn tractor.  Later one's had a 600 peerless.  I think this is the smallest mower you can get with 1in axles.  It's a 5066/5077 wheelhorse transaxle. Diff is a worm drive, but not like a standard worm.  Picked up an extra transaxle for 30, it's locked up at the moment.  The are all gear, cast iron, bearings, oil filled.  3 speed with reverse.  Has a nice band brake on the pinion shaft, on top, should be out of the way of dirt and mud.

If these tranaxles don't work out, I'll swap an 820 in at some point.

Originally it had a 7hp tecumseh. 11hp runs nice, need to upgrade the coil to get rid of the points.  Thinking a rear exhaust, chrome tip.

Paint on hood is redone, rest of it may have been painted at one time.  I want to put a stock paint job on it, and make it pretty....

worm gear final drive? like a bolens? that was the only downside to a bolens, if the motor didnt run you couldnt push them without popping that dam axle disconnect that was usually rusted solid  Mad  is that the same setup in that transaxle? Ive been looking for a commando v8 to build a rally mower out of but I didnt know the rearend was worm drive, if you cant push it in neutral than I need to change my search

Yep, worm drive, but not a normal one. You can push it, but it's a little stubborn.

Commando's also have the same transaxle. Both are vertical shaft engines.

If you want a vertical engine wheelhorse, with a normal transaxle, the later ones had 600 peerless trannys. b-100's.

I guess my real question, is if you go up a hill, dont make it, can you push in the clutch and roll backwards or do you think there is to much built in resistance? Thats one reason we quit riding bolens, you go up a hill on a sears or wheelhorse, dont make it just push in the clutch and roll back a couple feet and get the frontend back down. bolens not so much

i dont know what your bolens was, but on my 1055 (G-10) i climb my hills in 1st, if i get into trouble, i can slam it into reverse faster than i can get the clutch to the floor

It is a vertical shaft wheelhorse, they aren't worth much.

It will roll, depends on steepness of hill I guess.
