To keep a Sears tranny together you need a solid axle , machined from a single bar. Then it will stay together the best .

Yes 8 pinion 1 1/8 axles. 

  If I remember right Joe had the Sears weighted to the extreme pulling a dead sled. 

I know I have pulled a tractor trailer weighing 77,000 lbs with one of mine but that was rolling weight. Easy for almost any garden tractor to do, as long as the tractor operator is fool enough to try.  LOL  If I remember right alcahol and Metallica were involved

Well I got it home yesterday, was dark by the time i got it home so didnt do much. Today i got to play with it a little, bought a new battery for it as it didnt come with one, bought new front tires for it cause the old ones were dry rotted, so i took the wheels off and sand blasted them, gonna primer and paint them tomorrow,gotta get tubes tomorrow as well. The carb rebuild kit and spark plugs are coming in tomorrow so ill tune her up and hopefully get her purring.

Are you allowed to run AG tires? If so id definitely look into it. Might also want to lighten up those rear willy bars and get a taller set of front tires. other than that it doesn't look too bad :thumbs:

Ag tires are allowed but not pro tires, gonna run it as a class six this weekend but thats the end of the pulls for the year. By next year my plan is to have it fully built as a super stock so i will be running pro tires. Why the upsizing on the front tires? Unfortunately those wheely bars are right on spec if im not mistaken.

You'd be saving weight by putting smaller wheels on and lightening up the huge angled steel. I think its 6 inches off the ground from the ground level to the tire. Also those front little wheels wouldn't be helping you steer very well. Id upgrade to a tri rib with aluminum wheels.
