Hey y'all. I'm not a mudder, but I've got a lawn tractor that I'm building somewhat and this looks like a great place to get some info. 1985ish Craftsman GT18, engine currently in pieces and block is at the machine shop. Waiting on my rebuild kit. Thanks for having me!

Also I love the gt18s, such great looking tractors. When I have more money and can drive I'd like to get one.

Yeah I've heard people call them bullnose mowers, after the 80-86 ford trucks (one of which I have.)

Nice, I'm a little jealous because I love they way they look and how they are built! That's built by AYP, in the same era 3 other manufacturers made Craftsmans too, MTD, Murray and Roper. Just goes to show how popular the Craftsman name is

Definitely rugged.  Transaxles are pretty tough!

@Ifitaintbroke they're Definitely built like a tanks. Trying to get mine out of the back of my mom's lifted Ford was a booger it was so stove up my buddy I bought it from had to load it with a tractor with a front end loader (we however do not have one of those) So we basically had to kick it out of the truck downhill LOL, As  @MightyRaze mentioned the 633a transaxles are pretty Hefty, Some smart people told me "you have one of best transaxles for our purposes that you can get!" Very Happy

I agree the 633 seems very robust. I'd love to find a gt18 in a year or so with a 633 I would make a very tough offroad build if I had one.

@muddybasilisk I'm trying to get other projects finished so I can start working on mine and hopefully have it done sometime this summer, Maybe hit some off road parks as well

Wow, didn't even know what I had! I'm going to be using it as a small tractor. I currently have a sleeve hitch and disc harrow on it. Grass duty is done by a Husqvarna 24v48yth that I acquired for FREE.
