Well I got the MTD operational.
Had to switch out the 10 HP Tecumseh for the 12 HP Tecumseh. for some odd reason i could not get the 10 Hp to run right all it wanted to do is run in high idle or die all together. also
a question are all MTD'S slow? it has the tiny MTD transmission.
My old 88 had a normal shift setup not like this one that has a separate forward and reverse shifter. and a stand alone speed selector .
I am tempted to either put the 5 speed Spicer on it or put in the Peerless from the craftsman on it.

MTD transmissions are actually the variable pulley in the center of the chassis - the 'transmission' in the back just does the forward/reverse/neutral dutys.

Depends- most reasons why MTD's are slow is either belt slippage , brake sticking or the variable pulley is sticking- not allowing for total movement- the variable pulley should rotate and the center part should slide up and down- sort of like a torque converter - not to mention you should be running the wider 1/2" belts- that will also affect its movement.
