Well guys I thought it was because of the brackets moving on the frame but I welded them to the frame and now the rear just bolts to them instead of bolting to a bracket that in turn bolts to the frame.

Maybe there is some flex somewhere in the brackets?

Maybe the section you made to hold the rear axle is flexing when you run it around- needs extra bracing ? Chunk mentioned even on his machine that large angle he used still flexed alot.

Move all the sprockets inward as far as you can. It looks like the sprockets on the tranny are a little close to the ends of the axle-shafts. but that just being nit-picky... Looks great otherwise. I like it!

It looks like the tranny axle shaft needs some support.Would it be possible to mount a pillow-block bearing or possibly a cassette type on the bracket? A parts tractor is relatively cheap.Do you have pictures of the old transmission ,I would like to see where it broke at, if possible.Thanks.

What about looking for a RAGB - run the drive belt to it then a sprocket to the rear axle.
