Hey everyone. Long time reader, first time poster. I've been building an old Craftsman LT4000 all wheel steer for fun and found this awesome forum. I'm glad to be here and I hope to find help and give help when i can.

My tractor is an LT4000 AWS. The AWS was removed before I got it. The trans was replaced with a peerless 930 or 920. I am putting an 11 horse Briggs flathead on it. 4 inch pulley on the back, stock front for now. As we all know, no mower is ever really "finished", so this setup will definitely change.

Above all, I'm glad you all are having me as a member of the forum.
Thanks,
Cooper

Welcome to the forum! The all wheel steers have come with a peerless 930? Not entirely sure but they do come with the same type of trans

Don't the AWS 930s have some sort of CVT joint in the axle shaft that lets the tires get power while steering? I think the axle shafts can be swapped between the normal and AWS, but the case is a little different on the outside isn't it? I may be wrong as I haven't really looked into it much, but I think Doc had an old AWS transaxle that had a hole behind (relative to the tractor) for a pivot of some kind for the steering linkage. Again, I may be wrong so feel free to set me straight Laughing

Yes there is a hole for steering and there are also other casting differences including extra support for the knuckles ect

Hey guys, newbie here Aws11

Here is the differences, red is casting for knuckles (can be removed CAREFULLY, likes to break in my experience) and black is steering

OK cool, thank you. from working on it, I dont have a big hole through the ends of the case where the steering pivot went through. I got the mower from a friend, and he said the transaxle in it has been under a couple other tractors. Thank you for your help!

Welcome! I didn't realize those aws knuckles were that big compared to the trans. Guess I've only seen pics of them removed.
