That's weird that your three countershaft gears are keyed to that shaft, the one in my MTD is a splined shaft. Hmm, must be a slightly different model. Also those shifter gears are supposed to be bevelled like that I think, but the countershaft gears are only bevelled on one side.

Or an earlier model.

Wonder how that destruction unfolded. Shouldn't those shafts be hardened? How do you chowder up a hardened shaft like that?

I think that's actually a common problem with the older style countershaft. I've heard about it happening a couple different times.

Im probably going to end up welding the gears to the shaft. When it blows, I want complete and total destruction.

On another note... here is a crappy picture of the steering box I want to try and procure.
Its about as big around as a soup can.

Gall dang! 1000th post! And, its not even about a tractor!!!

Made up an axle for the scrapyard minibike.



Ran a die over both ends of the axle. Only enough on this side to get the nut flush with the axle, then I welded it.


I also had to make some spacers, one on each side. About .8in wide, I had to pry the frame apart ever so slightly to get them in. Tightened all up its perfect as far as Im concerned.


























Well ok... how about a shot of the "craftsman thing" with the possible tires... Im not really sure how I feel about them...


What do you people think?

I think those tires look pretty cool, with the wide ones in the rear and narrow ones in the front. Do you have two of both?

Sure do! The only problem, the rears are pretty rusted. My brother has a needle scaller I think will clean the flaky crap off nicely. Hopefully, they arnt rusted through anywhere.

Frotn and rear have the same 3 bolt pattern.
