That's a pretty quick rally machine set up there.  Snow donuts are so much fun.

Are you thinking about slowing it down a little bit or do you like it right where it is?

@Crazy_Carl ya I think I'm good with this setup for now just tweak it so its safer and make it last. I want to hit 33mph just to say I did, but I'm sitting to high.

murray - The MDT  (Murray Death Trap) - Page 2 20180820


so I took the axle apart it was so sloppy those plastic bushing are junk. I should have replaced them with brass ones but I dont have time for that lol, so I reamed out body washers to just fit over and welded them to the axle, so much better. I did loose steering to the right will have to fix that sometime.
biggest thing now is a better clutch setup and pull the transaxle and check on how its holding up with the abuse and change it over to oil. ( I need to find the bearing size for it)

I'm not liking the washers.  I would have ordered some bushings.  Those washers have no lubrication and not a lot of surface area to wear on and they are not going to last long. 

Maybe they just need to last long enough for the transaxle to blow. lol!

@Crazy_Carl maybe as little of both, I want to make a axle out of tubing so its stronger and I can lower it

That was Evening worth of work so I dont end up launching myself off at high speeds. something is better then it was it was so bad

took the transaxle apart again, to see how its holding up and why it kicks out of 5th but couldn't find anything wrong, good wear, no heat scores. gave it the good stuff Lucas will quite that thing down, I see if the shift linkinges are out

I had that issue with my Weed Eater when I pulley swapped it.  Belt was rubbing just enough in 5th to push it into the spot between gears where the tranny acts like its in neutral.

Here's the set up I figured out to fix it.

Moved the belt out of the way enough that it won't rub.

well the Murray is done, pulled the transaxle again because it wouldn't go into gear, well I thought it wasn't but the input pulley keyway was gone and just spinning on the shaft. I fixed it and checked the gears again took and out for a Rip and then lost 2, 3, and 5th. so now its donating its engine and parts to the huskee

Do an autopsy.  Would like to see what went wrong in that 920.  I would not tear it down, I'd try to get an 820, or putting another 920 in with a lower ratio.
