I've been wanting to do a low oil pressure light or pressure gauge for a while now. Maybe an oil temp gauge too. It's always cool to have your dash full of gauges The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 8 1098998679 makes it look cool

FINNALLLY got a proper non slap-butt seat !

The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 8 20171210

i also installed some snow chains on the tires.. the traction is completely ridiculous.. i can go trought 2-3ft snowbanks easily..
the ''new'' MST transaxle is also showing signs of abuse.. i will probably have to pop it open soon to see whats going on...

also looking at 20x7-8 trail wolfs for the rear and 16inch snowhogs on the front


to do:

-front bumper W front towhooks
-headlights, nilights dual flood..
-buy and mount new rear tires
-rear mud flaps (got them just have to bolt them in)
-belly pan, keep the sticks out of my belt..
-building a small alternator out of a small electric motor !?
-steering stops
-axle supports
-change the batteries

I was going to suggest just welding it in when you posted that it broke the last time. I hear a lot of racers, off-roaders, and pullers end up welding their axle shafts directly to their gears thus eliminating keys and snaprings. Off road tractor guys should do it that way too.

yea the doc locker eliminates gars and snaprings but the weak link is the keystock that keep snapping.. its probably the 3rd time now. i tried with different keystock and same result, maybe too many clutch dumps lol! but hey its fun ! so yea welding it next time..

Yikes, really chewed up the axle. You've had bad luck with axle shafts and transaxles it seems. 18hp pressure lube opposed probably don't help that, hahaha.

I did the same thing on my doc locker 2.0 . So I switched to the first version and the locker held fine. Wish I could say the same about the tranny after drifting in snow too much.
