Any obvious things on the outside? It could just be the pulley spinning on the shaft. Check simple stuff like that before you tear into it.

Eh I doubt it but I’ll have to check since the belt was clearly slipping and the pulley wasn’t moving at all

Alright I went and looked and the tires spun separately so the welds on the diff must’ve broke

Alright so I’m finally sick of this trans so I’m gonna end up taking the plunge and putting my money into a doc locker on this so hopefully I don’t have to go through this again

I personally like the DOC style as it seems pretty sturdy.

the only complaints i've heard about the doc locker is shearing the key where the axle goes through the hub, or stripping the keyway on the axle itself, but i've only heard one person say they've had that issue

Common solution to that is welding the hub to the axle.

Well a little update here, I got the old spicer put back in Temporarily till I get the mst fixed, this week I’m hoping to wire up some lights i have laying around and I’m also hoping I’ll be able to get a new hood and some 18” tires on 8” rims for the front to hopefully give me more float and traction. And I’m thinking about putting the old rack on there but I may end up redesigning it first so it looks better

So recently I’ve been working on this more and finally have it to a point where I’m almost done with it (for now of course) I got some 20” atv tires from another member and used them to replace the ones on the rear and I put the old ones on the front with 8” rims from the mtd I sold. I also put a 6” pulley on the front so now my ratio is 6-4 and it gives me a top speed of about 30 but still gives me torque In the mud. Also got a new grill for the front of it that’s in much better shape and put the rack back on98 craftsman lt1000 rally mower/speed build - Page 6 614ca710

Here’s a couple romp pictures, the top one is when I was on a creek forge to get to a field and the second one is from today when I tried to cross a creek and I got stuck for the first time in a while. Mud was a foot deep and the rest was water up to my fenders98 craftsman lt1000 rally mower/speed build - Page 6 A5c09910

Alright I need some major advice about what to do with this thing, the current spicer is on its way out and the steering is terrible. I’m gonna be getting a gravely 1138 soon and I was thinking about swapping everything off this mower onto the gravely. I would also swap the mst into the back of the gravely. Should I do this or am I better off trying to redo the steering. I was also hoping the gravely would be stronger
