Takes an experience like that with a bad shop to show you how good you have it at the right shop when you find it.  If only my boss would understand this concept.

well i just made a wanted ad on craigslist so well see what happens.

i might go and ask about the murray gt in town, i really could use that 820!!!!!!!!!!!!! i bet i could buy the whole mower body with tranny for under 200 so it would be a better deal than ebay.

For an 820? i think it would be well worth 200. they are so rare around here.

Ooh, that one has a big block opposed on it too! Haha. Could probably fix up and sell both decks that come with it and make most if not all of your money back.

Wait, did you just say you were gonna doc lock and put axle supports on the transaxle that doesnt necessarily need it? Why didn't you do that to the transaxles you had before that could actually use them? If you would have, you wouldn't be in this situation.

It's plenty ok to change your mind. That 820 would be a nice install for that rig!

Id probably put the mud lights back on it and ding some lighter tread tires for the snapper. That's the cheaper option.
