Well since I only got the bottom bearing ordered I thought I would look at the ball bearing and found that it was just a bit rusty and games up from sitting still. So I soaked it in gas and cleaned it with a brussh and soaked it in oil then cleaned it again . Good as new! (Almost) packed it with grease and cleaned up the seals . Should get the other bearing in the mail today.

Looks pretty good. Remember that the input shaft is turning at the highest rpm back there.

yeah, well this mower doesnt go too fast, about 19 mph ungoverned . the bottom bearing just fell apart when i took it out, so thats more of what i was worried about.

found a drill bit set from 9/16 to 1 inch. has 7/8 and 13/16 . its 24 bucks on amazon, so i dont think they are super quality but for two holes really cant beat that.

Good find. I find that bigger drills are easier to sharpen by hand when they go dull anyway.

Anyway I’d say the axle ison the long side. Are you going for a wider track width. I thought you were talking about adding axle supports.

Yeah I'd cut it off a little longer than stock, get a nice wide stance.  Maybe you won't roll this one this time! lol!

got over 2 inches of rain last night, and it filled up all the good mud holes and creeks. nothing sadder than all this mud and nothing to drive through it. might get the murrays rear tires replaced( burnout chooched them and now there both flat) and take it out there and try to drown it. something about deep water mudding is just so much more fun than just plain mudding.

That sux.  You're also lucky, down here we're in a drought.  Even the rock bottom/side creeks are evaporating about 3" a day and haven't flowed since last spring.

Haha, hey, when the zombie apocalypse comes, us Texans will be the only people that survive!  The heat just makes us tougher, I was out clearing land today and it was 90*, and I once build a fence in 107* weather.
