Just barely faster than stock, but it's still the fastest off-roader of the group so it doesn't need to go any faster.

I tore down the spare 600 last night just so I could kinda check everything out inside.



Here's the case after I removed almost everything.



The shift cluster, reverse idler, and counter shaft all look good.



Also I found out this one has the newer and more reliable splined countershaft instead of the single keyed one.



Everything looks great! Should be good enough to slap in a tractor if need be.

Fixed that for ya...

You know, the good part about mine being split open, all the slimy oil has already drained out.

She looks good in that there. Lucky they're oil filled, makes it easier to clean up so you can fozzy lock it.

Throw that A&W out unless it's cream soda ugh silent lol!

Arent they all made by the same company?

Cream soda is good too, but root beer is the one they carry at the gas station in town so thats what i drink the most.

I want a 600 like that one with the splined shafts, look nice and beefy

Yes but I new it was gonna happen this time, haha.

Yeah biggas, they are pretty beefy. And the splined countershaft is definitely more reliable that the single keyed one.

That'd be cool to see done. I don't think I've seen a Peerless 600 in a 2000's Murray before haha.

I got my steering arms nice and tucked into my rims today.



Also I think I finally got my Ackerman angles right!!!!! Only took a few tries, hahaha.



Made a new steering arm for my drag link as well to drop the ratio a bit.



Much better now, ratio is nicer and the bump steer is pretty minimal. Basically it's better to drive now. Hopefully this is the last of the steering work for a while! Haha

With that suspensions handling so well now you need to pulley swap it and see how it goes down the highway. I like how your tie rod is up out of the way to clear obstacles. It'd be nice if there were some way to do that with your drag link too but there isn't a lot of room for that on these machines.

Yeah the drag link being so low kinda bothers me, the most I think I could do is re-shape it and put the rod end on the top side of the steering arm. I don't know, maybe I'll come up with something.
