Hey guys I got a new project going some members might remember me others not lol it's been like a year ugh. Anyways I picked up a 83 Montgomery wards which share the same design as the wizards mtd ect.
This one has the factory 5speed peerless witch is the main reason I bought it as I don't care for the variable speeds lol.
Stuff I've done so far
-Peerless Transaxle with bearings and seals. I've pulled and diss assy/cleaned/fozzy locked axle/added air vent with hose/sealed case with sealant/engine honey added as the lube/4" pulley shimed pinion for less up & down movement.
-Built double pulley clutch along with linkage/relocated pedal to left side/rear and clutch pulley retainers.
-Belly cover to protect belt/pulleys/linkages from sticks ect
-Added pillow block bearing to steering column/added shim under gear for less play/upgraded steering linkage/right side spindle hole drilled for pin instead of retainer clip.
- Old b&s 10hp flatty removed and replaced with 1990 b&s vanguard 14hp ohv with full oil pressure lub/4 1/2" front pulley

Lots more to do lol pics soon lol

I'm not sure yet would like to have a set of sport quad rear tires as I want it for road/dirt/lawn/offroad.
And my welder I love best welder I've had. I got it for a steal $50 one day I hope to get the regulator and tank for it other then that it's all set  up for gas.

I don't have a diagram as I built it off the top off my head. Steering shaft and tie rods were from a atv 2x3 box steel axle with bronze bushings and center pivot with 3/4 spindles from a snapper. I had to weld 2 arms on the drop frame to mount a bearing to to hold the bottom of steering shaft.
Then cut and welded up my tie rods to size. It was. Direct steer setup.i might have pics.
