do you have more work to do to mount the transaxle? I can’t tell from the pictures if the axle tubes are bolted to your tractor frame or not.

The axle mounts halfway bolt up, I am going to weld some extra material so I can bolt the front holes up.

that sounds like a pretty easy fix it looks like it fits and they’re great.

Well looks like the engine is going to be pulled so I can flip it over and remove the mowing hardware and figure out the gearbox setup. A belt twist wpuld be easier..............took off the hood and dash, rest is going to get removed probably too for wiring.

What are your thoughts on converting it to a horizontal shaft engine to eliminate the beltwist or RAGB?

You'd have to do something for a dipstick tube as well. Also I'm not sure how you'd bolt it down to the frame in that configuration.

Got one tire home, still haven't found the other one. Has a lot of dry got cracks but only leaks from a small one so slime or tubes will fix it. A lot wider than the previous tire was, so the rack is in the way and is going to be removed.

Hey that looks really good on there! Should look pretty slick with both mounted up. Also that tire appears to have great tread, like it was hardly used almost. Pretty good for free! Haha.

Now locating the other tire is going to be very hard, as I simply stumbled on this one and the other is somewhere around his 6 acre yard that has dozens of machines and dozens of vehicles and with enough parts to build a battleship buried all over with tons of combines half emerged in the ground . Oh and the amazing wild blackberries that have half inch razor sharp thorns cover the edges of the property.

Figuring out belt twist ideas. Still working on it, and will probably end up with something like mighty has on kal-el .
