I don't know if anybody actually said they don't work... Let's face it- if it didn't, it wouldn't be an option! However- a hydrostatic drive arrangement isn't really conducive to regearing. You pretty much have what you have, and you're stuck with it.

Looks like you had fun though, which is great. Be sure to get under there with the hose or pressure washer and get that transmission clean. Mud=heat, and heat=cooked tranny...

I put my posi locker back into the case, cleaned all the grease out and put new grease in, cleaned all the bushings inside of it, put rtv on it and put it all back together and threw it back under the tractor. I also primed my grinding spots on the fenders and took it mudding to "test" the locker. Works awesome.

Hes saying that because of cooling. You may not be hurning it but that's what the shroud if for, and also safty.
