You really should. They would have good names.

I'm thinking of doing shocks on the tractor maybe to give it alittle more stability and it will be say to add a lift when I feel like doing that

I got her painted. As far as the seat I will probably leave it orange cause it's different and that's also the original color of it. I will go buy some orange paint at some point I just don't know when.

Names- when I do pick a name it will be painted on either side of the hood but as for now she is name less until I decide on one.

Name choices are
-devil dog(partly because I want to be a marine)
-black widow
-midnight

So I locked my axle today using fearlesses method. Now when I turn the pully in 1st 2nd and sorta in 3rd I can spin in by hand using the pully but not at all by the axles. It is almost impossible to turn the pully by hand in the rest of the gears. Why would this be? The axles only move when you turn the pully not at all turning the tires or putting plyers on the axle. Could someone explain why this is?

It is because of the gear ratios inside your transaxle. You can turn the input by hand but can't turn the axles by hand. Usually most transaxles are like that.

So that's normal and I shouldn't worry about it tearing up the transaxle. It's not a problem that it does that? So I shouldn't worry about it at all?

What I'm worried about is I can't turn the axles at all even in neutral? It is impossible to turn the axles even with tires on them I can't budge them.

I got my axle fixed and everything. Something in there was just binding up. Can anyone tell me what kind of axle I have. I know it's a 6speed oil filled pearless. Craftsman lt1000 - Page 2 Image10

I did but since I have no clue about transaxles I had no clue of how to read it. I'll go take a picture of it and maybe someone can make some sense of it for me.
