Been pricing the live axle set-up. That ain't cheap.
Daniel, I want to know if the wheels have key ways for the live axle. I'm sure the axle stubs won't have them.
Brian, This is just a toy! I would like to do it right, but not a lot of expense if possible. (Doubtful, tho). Might make it good enough to sell and put the money back into the tractors. Just play a bit first.

KennyP : I bot my stuff from Northerntools - it wasnt exactally cheep, but theres an outlet store nearby - the straight axle was like $40 to $50 ( depending on length) - they had a differential type axle setup that ran over $100: http://www.northernt...uct_35768_35768

A cheeper alternative would be look for a RER tractor or small tractor with a live axle setup - i have a 70 toro with one under it .

I bot a bunch of pillow block berings for some of my projects also from there - those are strong and greaseable high speed berings.

Check for go kart parts places for the axle - sometimes they can sell stuff cheeper.

Found several places, depends on a few things. Don't have an engine yet, so not in a rush. But I do appreciate the comments.

Hadn't messed with this thread for a while, but Steve and Jarrod came back from moving more things into the shop today with this:

I think between the two, we can have a running kart. This has a 5 HP Tecumseh OHV engine and all the parts we are missing for the other. The frame is bent on this one. Just a little majic and some TLC should have us goofing off in a hurry.

I've been playing with this a bit. Got the engine running, it sounds real good. It's an OHH-50 Tecumseh. Found a manual here for it.
I also stretched the frame 6". Gave up on the live axle, too expensive. I reworked the rear axle for the single drive wheel, had to move the motor mount up to allow movement for the seat sliders.
Haven't taken pics, maybe today. Have to get a new chain, the old one is way too stiff. I will also have to rework the brake setup. I either need to get tubes or new rear tires. But it's coming along.

Good to know your project is still moving along Kenny. Just let these young ones know that we seniors still enjoy life and having some fun.
