Since my pulley swapped lt1000 hasn’t had an engine for a month and has been sitting on bricks for that time, I decided to do some work on things other than the motor like replacing some of the bushing in the steering and stuff. I was replacing my brake pads when the bolt holding the pad holder on snapped, so I have removed the wheel to get more room to get it out. There was oil all over the axle that the wheel had been covering. Since I am going to be opening my axle to replace the axle seals, I’m gonna do a bit more while it’s open. So far I’m planning to add some bearings to the axle in the spaces provided, as well as replacing the oil of course. Is there anything else I should do while I have it open or any tips for the process of assembly and disassembly?

Pulley swapped you say? A case vent would be a wise idea then, a 1/8 NPT barbed fitting with a length of hose on the top half of the case where it's clear of interfering with any internals should work great. Adding a grease fitting inbetween the input shaft bearings so you can grease then occasionally will help extended their life. Through bolting the case halves adds alot of strength. Most guys swear by locking the diff but it depends on the usage of the tractor in my opinion, if you're planning on spending alot of time in the mud or on big hills it's a great idea, aside from that an open diff is quite capable once you learn how to shift your body weight around.

I'll look into both of those, thanks! For now I mainly use it to get around on the street. I try to get into mud and offroading some but sadly there isn't much around here. Once I can drive I'll probably swap this tractor's purpose to mainly offroad. Should I make the hose really long or put a filter on it or should it be fine exposed?

If you plan on driving through a lot of mud or water then I would run it up under the seat or dash. I do put a filter on mine but I don’t think it really makes too much difference. Just my personal preference. I did the vent tube and grease fitting to all 3 of my Murrays if you want to take a look.

If you are doing deep water, shoot for the dash, otherwise under the seat is good.  I would put an old fuel filter on the end for protection.

Hope this helps, zerk in the void under the input bearing, and the barbed nipple in the drain plug.  May have to make threads, mine self threaded in there.

Thank you, that helps. I'm assuming just some regular grease works for those bearings. With through bolting does it really make much of a difference? I can understand why it would but is it really worth it?
