I'm running the same transaxle on my murray rer. It bolted right up to it so it probilly would bolt right up too your frame to. So far with a 6in engine pulley and a 3.5in transaxle pulley its doing ok but i'm not sure how long its gonna hold up. Depending on your tire size and with that pulley swap it should hold up though. Rigging up a shifter may be kinda hard though if you don't like the idea of having it on the left hand side.

I know spicers break a lot more than other axles because of lower quality, but it probably would only break under more aggressive tires than stock, and turning posi.

cummins- my old transaxle had the shift shaft in the same spot, and I have the original front pulley and a 4 1/2" pulley on the trans, so it isn't quite 1:1, but it is close. Can you get the 5th gear ratio for me? just put the tranny in 5th and see how many turns of the input it takes for the wheels once.

red- I have 18" atv tires on it and I will probily just leave it open for a while until I see what it will do unlocked.

I forgot to post the price! it is $74.95. that is pretty cheap if you ask me, as the new shift keys and 5th gear assembily is well over $120. do any of you know if spicers have bearing slots in them like peerlesses do?

I'll try to figure out the 5th gear ratio today. It may be a little hard though with it still in the mower lol. For price that is pretty cheap but on ebay you can get a brand new mst205 for around 150 shipped. I'd say that would be the better deal because they are stronger.
