I doubt a dipstick tube is that expensive, its only a piece of plastic and metal. How is the doc locker gonna work like that? Gonna weld in the pins to the carrier with a slot cut out for em in the hub?
i know it shoudnt be expensive but i cant find where to get one. and ill just weld the pin to the hub and cut the excess, this way i cant still remove my axle if i need to.

i locked the differential with my new axle today.

i just welded parts of the pin to the hub. i could have just welded the pin to the axle but then there would have been more leverage on the welds and i only have a small 80A welder, this way the welds are in alot less stress because the pins are really short.

na i not going to put the wheels too far from the trans. i was fine with the stock width.
i might reinforce the frame tho because its thin, ill probably endup doing some bracing around the trans someday.

today i got a a belt and went for a little spin.its a little faster but everything worked, except maybe that my front tires are super crappy so i took the front tires to an tire shop to get the 15 inch knobbies on the rims.

i also mostly finished the rear bumper, i really like it the way it is right now, the only things left to do on it are the hitch and the mounts to bolt to the tractor.

the bumper i just hanging there, i wanted to see how it looked.

i dont want to stress the trans too much, i pretty sure that if i jump it with the wheels that far appart te trans will snap in two. and i cant take the credit for the lock collar idea, dock mentionned it in his doc locker video.


got the knobbies on the front ! they steer pretty well, but its a world of dirrecenre compared to my old worn out ones i have on there before.

this is the mounts that attach the bumper to the frame of the tractor, i made them out of 1/4in flat stock, nice and beefy. should help with frame flex too. i also want to make a small carry box out of sheetmetal in between the mounts, thats why it so empty.

tommorow im building the hitch painting the bumper and installing it on.
next thing will probably be messing with the pulleys, or maybe making a better front bumper.

i also jumped this thing, the 4 tires left the ground lol, that was fun, ill try to post a video of that soon.

yes the brakes and the clutch are on the right. thats just how it came on this machine. you get used to the clutch being on the wrong side fast but at first its dangerous lol.

My 94 LT4000 Craftman All-Wheel steer, the brake is on the right and there is a pedal on the left that is a deck lift. Thankfully I have missed the car, the house, and a few trees. LOL

i went for a big romp this weekend everything was going well until the tractor stopped going forward. at first i thought that the belt was slipping on the pulleys but it wasnt. my brakes have no effet on the axle, i think my welds broke, they key could have sheared but i really doubt that, even if i kinda want it to be that i dont think im that lucky lol. ill open the trans tommorow after work. if my welds boke idk what ill do, i dont really want to just reweld it to have it break again.

going back to the shop for the repairs, again...

My guess would be that you broke the key. It's happened to people before, usually people with 22" tires that like wheelies. If you broke the welds, then you should add in some plates and some morewelds and make it pretty much indestructable

i REALLY hope its the key lol. But i do weight quite a bit, and i dont baby this thing. hopefully its the key.

thinking about that it might verywell be the key, because when im of of the tractor and i put it in gear it kinda goes forward a little. oh well ill see tommorow. thanks for making me think about this a little more about this, lets hope it the key lol.

That rear bumper is pretty neat. I don't think I've ever seen one of these tractors before, at least not this particular year. Interesting. Good luck with the repairs, keep us posted.

i also found out that my input gear was broken. it was missing a couple of teeths. so i took one from one of my other tractors. i also wondered why the gear got that bad and i discovered that my input shaft bearings were shot, thankfully i had another peerless 800 case so i took the tophalf and the bearings in the new case are like new.

filled it up with new oil and sealed it back up ! that took 1 liter of oil if anyone is wondering.

i also installed some leds in the original headlight housings and they are quite good but i still want to order some nilights to put on the future new front bumper.

Looks good, gonna do some axle sppuorts?

i might just have to now... after i went for a test ride i realised that i bent the axle. but before i do the supports i have to brace up the frame. so its not going to happen for now.
