I'm making an MTD six speed mower, but I can't find an 820 anywhere. Any suggestions on where to look sure from eBay?

I don't know if you'll be able to find one on ebay. Might wanna check any local scrap/metal yards, or a mower graveyard if you can find one.

@LJHunter429 look for a murray garden tractor from the mid 90s up, the big heavy duty tractor not the lighter riding mower, they have an 820, the one i had also had 7/8 front spindles and 8in front wheels

Craftsman and Murray (and their other brand cousins) used the 820 in some of their heavier applications if you try scrap yards.  Look for 12 inch tires and 1 inch axles with the 5/6 speed fender/tunnel shifter.

Typically looks like:

Here are what they typically look like.  Unless I am mistaken, Murray has a long/tall shift shaft and craftsman shorter?

Murrays are also typically 5 speeds, with a 5/8 input shaft. If that’s ALL you can find, run with it. The craftsman variant is usually a 6 speed, so it has much better ratios, plus has a 3/4 inch input shaft.

The murray shifter is tall and the craftsman is the standard short shaft shift style, as @mightyraze said

You can also put out a wanted ad on marketplace or Craigslist. You never know who might have a “junk” tractor they want gone for cheap or nothing.

@Rustbucket Garage that's not a bad idea.
