Hey'all. I've been lurking at around for a little while now, and thought I owe y'all a hello. Kinda new to atlt's, but what I've seen y'all do with 'em is wild. Got a '96 Murray pan chassis I'm looking to turn into a trail/hunting machine. Biggest holdups are cost of tires and the hydro tranny is wore out. I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how from android.

It was a bit of a challenge, but here are a few pics of my starting point. My goal is to have it at least functioning by October for the beginning of bow season.

Welcome! Looks like a solid starting platform... Those Murray pans are practically indestructible.

FYI most don't care for hydro transaxles because you cant really speed them up without risking burning them up.

Thank you for the welcome. My intent is to swap a manual tranny into it, but I'm having a hard time finding a scrap yard that doesn't shred everything same day.

Craftsman1998,

Nice looking Shepherd you got there! Your picture certainly grabbed my eye. Can't wait to get a GS of my own that can bark and growl at me as I play on my tractors.

Welcome! Are you sure that tractor is a hydro? I'd imagine its a vari-drive setup. Its possible that it's a hydro though, I had a old dynomark "by noma" (noma being made by mtd lol) that had a 5 speed spicer, and the worst clutch you've ever seen.

I've had the tranny out before and there are no extra belts and pulleys on top. Just one belt to the motor. It also has a plastic reservoir full of hydro fluid sticking out the back.
