That my friend, is a good ol' Peerless 2300! Definitely one of the better garden tractor transaxles as far as being heavy duty goes, and yours has the sweet disk brake setup as well!

What an awesome free find!  Great start to a project.  All of AllisKidD21's rigs started out as free finds and so did my John Deere.  I passed a free sabre on the side of the road last week.  Spicer rear end and a wet noodle pan frame so I just kept driving lol.

@Crazy_Carl that's too funny, might scrap the blue Murray and build this instead.

Is has belt twist and a pan frame of some sorts, but it's a neat old looking Huskee with an oppy and a 2300! How's the steering in it?

@Crazy_Carl yes it's a belt twist, ya I think it's a pan frame I can unbolt the steering panel and seat and fenders from it and it would be a flat frame. as for the steering it's good, its tighter then my old sears.

I'm trying to figure out who makes Huskees, some places say MTD and others Murray.

Wow, great that you got it for free. I'd say it was made by Dynamark, yours looks like a Dynamark 16/42. That 2300 is really heavy duty, the disk brakes are really cool.

Gotcha covered, again. LOL.

Pretty cool that you got 'er for free, definitely a good score. Got any plans as far as mods or is that all still up in the air?

Nice tractor there, little rusty, but I like that.  Being a pan frame, do you plan to reinforce it any?

@AllisKidD21 thanks.  Still up in the air until I know for sure the transaxle is good to go but

probably
ATV tires on rear
bigger up front
foot throttle
hand brake
bumpers, winch
lights front and rear
reinforce the frame is a must


this one will be for friends when there over

and all that rust is just surface more like sun baked

or get it driving and use it. then wait until the next build off before I start building it

Yes!  Do all the gears work?  How does the oppy run?

So how about the name "MudSkee"?

@Crazy_Carl I have to figure out the governor and throttle set up on this 16 its a little different then the 18, I just bypassed the governor and hook the throttle straight to it, ran great. as for the transaxle the gear oil was mint and every gear work great. not a fan of the clutch on the right with the brake there too, the damn brake lock engaged when I was shifting into high gear and then it let go and I popped the front straight up the only thing that stop me from going over was the hitch lol.

I like that name let's change it

Glad you like the name.

Sounds like building a clutch pedal on the left should be one of your first mods.

@Crazy_Carl ya maybe but due to being a belt twist the belt is more to the right side of the tractor then the center, I'll have to look at it more

@CraftsmanQuad19 oh ya, I'm going to leave it. that park brake has to go.
fuel tank spout was busted off so I made a new one out of 1" pipe

so now it's all back together, both throttles work and choke is unseized. don't minded the bungie cord it's for testing purposes only lol. next I have to pull the transaxle the pulley is no good I hope it's a keyway.
