ah, I'm still a little confused.  Would you post up a pic of the pins and washers?  This machinist sounded like a good craftsman to work with.
in time, i need to wait till next check, then i buy RTV an i can assemble ile. ile need to grind down 2 of my washers to make the fit perfect. i dont want them to rub, but also dont want much play left and right.h

huh, and i was worried i should of deleted thoes clips if i needed to fast forward threw them. i did not want to play music as we all got diffrent taste.
i was taking the fly wheel off to properly swap out the starter, but or my firend never pressed record on the camra or did not let the camra have a proper start up time. i dont think it was me but it could of been, i was quite distracted.

Dang that Front Axle!!!

But Dinky looks like its perofrming great!
I would add a spring to your nut buster shifter, that pulls it back, so it wo'nt flip always into the neutral groove there, that it's easier to start or go in reverse with your nice fender shifter

i just welded in a little square of metal to block off the nutrual position. because of gravity there is no longer any place for it to catch unless the tractors on 2 wheels or upside down, witch should not be to often thats a problem.

id like to add that i plan on straightening out the old axle, cutting it to normal lenth, and using it for locking a rear on the redneck mower. im getting a new axel for dinky, and im getting much thinner angle iron this time around and cut it how i did my second time fixing it, im getting full penetration out of my welder this time. all in all, i dont see what i did before as a loss, i learned from it and its forcing me to ripka lock another trans.

so i started working on dinky agin. i tried using my vice to smash my split rim back together for a weld... bent my vice. so i drained my fluid out my rims, coverd chewed up axel in JB weld, put rim on, put in keystock, then welded the end of the rim nice and good on the axle, took rim off the other side to see i blew it open to, and keystock was in such horrible shape, so did the same thing there to.

played around with it a few days, so far so good, need to hit the trail and see if it fails.

so i asked my dad if he planed on putting the old grill back in service, he told me it was to rusty to be saved

(only thing that looked damged was elament witch could be replaced at walmart, but i was gutting it before i saw that)
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 7 A3Pem9i

i was thinking this would be grate (<pun) to use as a rack, as long as i give it good underneath support like i did my mud cart.
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 7 Oa6fkAo

so i really had to look at my parts and think, how was i going to make this work, then it hit me. i can make a really stout & sturdy bumper, then use the rails on the bumper to connect to the supports i will weld on the rack
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 7 TcetW6Z

only problem is i ran out of tube steel before i was done.

looking at it, i see it coming together now, and i think it will look awesome with wide dinky when i make dinky wide agin. (need new rims and axle)
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 7 LcioCyD

i did not mesure anything and some if mine, and my firends cuts were not perfect, the bumper's bumping part will be cut off (and im going to mesure it) and that cut off part can be used for rack support, and i will probboly use some TSC tube steel for new not crooked or dented bumper.

When you get new rims you should go with hubs this time. If you can find golf cart rims at a junkyard or something there the same size as mower rims and there 4 on 4 and bolt on perfect to go kart hubs. By the way if your looking for a new 3/4×36in live axle the best deal is bmikarts.com thats what I am running in my rally mower with axle supports like yours. My old one was from Amazon and it bent and twisted.

actully the prices of the 4 bolt rims on this website are quite affordable. so i guess i could get 4 bolt hubs. and if i can find 12x12 4 bolt rims dinky's getting some big wheels as thats what i wanted for dinky the whole time. i also want bigger in front.

Oh I thought you were looking for another sef of 8in rims. I wouldn't go to big because I ran 25×8-12s on the rally before I rebuilt it and I twisted to 3/4in live axle in two places. You should probably go 4 bolt because it gives you way more size options. But go with the 4 on 4 and npt the 4 in 5 3/8 or whatever because you can't get 3/4 bore hubs for the larger lug pattern.
