Well, the weights and fluid in the rear tires exposed a "weak link". :(
Sheared the key in the rear axle. Oh well, a trip to TSC has me all fixed up. :yelclap:

Changed "real axle" to "rear axle"

Got to love these old GTs. They keep us out of the house and the wife's hair.

Well, Fred seems to have ridden his 430 of ALL the bugs! That thing pulls like a monster now! Just got back from helping him get his plow adjusted. Last plow day we went to, his 430 would NOT plow in high range. Bogged down bad & not even any smoke. His fuel is turned to at least where it should have been, andf he just took off with the plow in high range with NO problem......full speed ahead! And puts out the smoke when under the high range load. She's a beast now for sure!
