The front of the axle has to be supported. Theres screw hole on the side up front. you risk cracking the case or the axle driving underneath it.

You definitely need to add some cross-bracing. Lateral forces will bend those plates like a taco. You got rid of the wood? Good man!

As for the pics, remove them from your post (use EDIT button), flip them over, and upload them again.

I need to get some more steel for the cross bracing, and yes lol I got rid of the wood (only because I needed an extra 2inches lol) jk the wood would eventually get soft from the water logging it takes but a good temp trial testing block if you ask me. I also need to make a new shifter on this thing

I was able to flip my lab top uside down and look at them lol. It looks really sweet with that size lift. I should do one that side on my RER lol. As for the clutch what if you used on from the murray the 6 speed came off of? I've never had a problem with a murray clutch. What are go doing about the tires?

You could get some 4 wheeler tires from some where that size. They make some with some pretty thick lugs on them.

not really an update but two pictures of the lift right now... still have to add the cross bracing. can i do one horizontal peice or should it be an X? and have to to the front mount and im pretty sure a fender shifter will be best for this tractor, i tried a couple imaginary hand positions anad fender felt the best. so ill have to do that to but heres the two pics

I think you would get a LOT of strength by framing in an X that spans from side-to-side between the "towers".

You definitely want some forward support too, to take any possible twist out of it.

Yea I think I'm going to go back to where the old Murray sits and rip out the shift mechanism and the old front mount bracket so I don't have to fab it all, get some more steel for the cross bracing and weld that in and hook up the front mount. After that's all done maybe weds day or so I can start the shifting linkage.

Started on the shifter and put the horizontal brace in, couldn't do a X because the pulley would hit it and I though this is strong enough, here's some update pics! Also redid the steering the other day and made a wire harness, fixed the charging problem stole the old diode off a junk mower and now it charges!

Hopefully these are right side up lol

So are you using the stuff for shifting off the murray? I'd like to do that with my spicer. Get more pictures of the clutch when you get done to if you will.

Yea I used the Murray shifting lever I'm having to extend the actually shift linkage to the tranny tho. And I used one of the Murray like brackets. I didn't need the other one cuz it's the frame right now I might reinforce it with it but I don't see why I would have to

I like it, but two things I would like to say.
 
1.maybe you should brace those front mounts for the trans-axle.
 
2.For the shift linkage I used a chopped up piece on a tie-rod with a bolt welded on the end and a heim-joint on the end.

Hope it helps.
