So are you planning on putting that locked FNR into the Murray. I've thought of building up a basic tractor with a locked FNR with a pulley swap before because it would be easy to drive and would be nice for a young driver. A  potential downside of a pulley swapped FNR is the lack of torque for pulling in forward as there's no gears to change down to, but as a runabout it wouldn't be a bad drivetrain.

Wouldn't wanna gear it too high either, or taking off would be brutal since you only have one gear.

Yeah I forgot to mention that Allis. Only having one gear limits how fast you can gear it to. But it would probably be ok at around 10mph.

I’m guessing you hit something with the bottom of that transaxle jus right and it cracked it all the way around the perimeter and it fell off.

Make a skidplate for your next transaxle.

Oooohhhh, that is painful. Perhaps there was a weakness around the perimeter of the base of that trans, and a knock on the bottom cracked it and it fell out. Some JB Weld or other epoxy may fix it though.

Well the internals are mst, and the case is 930, not sure if that had something to do with it.lol and It was doc locked and I was drifting around......

Well I posted an ad on Craigslist and already have two craftsman mowers lined up to pick up in wichita, one is a 1978 model with a bad engine and the other is a 1990's model with a broken steering assembly. Perfect for parts!!!

Nice score on the Craftsman mowers. I'd be interested to see the older one, I love older mowers. Be sure to post some pics of it if you get it!

Yup. If the Murray is a gt and I can get it for under 80 bucks it's way better than the eBay 820.

I'm kinda lost in the thread, but the 78 Craftsman could be either Roper or Murray built. If Roper I may have the 633a with Hi/Lo if Murray then a 2300.  Then again is may be a suburban.  

Murray GT with an 820?  $80 sounds good.

Well for now it's staying. I am ditching the steering collum and fenders, and using the fnr with turf tires for now. It is locked. I just fabbed up a smaller pulley for it and swapped a shorter belt on. The one in the pic isnt the one thats going on it.

It's off the lawn boy, but it's for 3/8" belts not 1/2". Got it running and driving. Goes slower than I thought it would so that's good. It's about 9 mph which is good for single speed. It's a blast to drift with, but the tire is shot so I will be replacing it. It needs some front tranny supports and a shifter but it's really quite fun to drive.

Wow that transaxle reeeeally exploded. COOL! Almost cool enough that it's worth it when that stuff happens.

yeah i think it was the diff that exploded like that , the diffs on peerless 930s is the weak link for me. the clusters were fine and input gears were fine. Since i got the 2300 i am thinking about putting it in this one so i stop breaking trannys, does anyone know if you can shift on the fly with a 2300 without grinding gears?
