Yeah it is possible, the only reason that I stopped working on the 35 speed beast is because that the trans mounts on the five speed peerless were wider than the ones on the vari-drive so I had to make new mounts but I didn't have the materials to do that.  So I put it aside and worked on the rally, but it should work.

honestly what i would do is try to find another tractor. the mtd frames are crappy and flex a lot. i would never trust a nice 5 or 6 speed tranny under that
