After reading a but I find out you can install them with the wheels slung to the rear, this is better but it make it so you can not lift the implement, correct?
Has anybody installed the reduction wheels so they ride vertical from the position of the factory wheel location?
I don't mind pulling apart the machine just to find out because I want to find out what worm gear it has, I think from the fact I have to walk at a brisk pace it must be the 8 tooth unit.
Any info would be great!

Before you turn axle housings to change height relationships or tire relationships with accessories remember: DRAIN OIL AND DO NOT REMOVE THE SHIMS OR SWITCH THE SHIMS AROUND. BEST PRACTICE IS TO REMOVE THE 6 BOLTS AND TURN THE HOUSINGS WITHOUT PULLING OUT THE AXLES.
I hope this is of some help...wobbly

I was not sure what all is in the axle area, but looking is not a bad thing just put it all back again.
As for the axle cut outs i think i only have the half moon in one location? I will have to double check that.
As for the reposition of the wheels, you discribed just what i was thinking but i thought somebody must have been like me before and done this once or twice so i had to ask!
I will let you know what i come up with for the gears in this one, im sure its an "L" unit as i have to darn near run when its in high with the standard 8" wheels on! ( and im not that short i dont think)

Now that I have had a turn or two with the reduction wheels off I think they will be going back on.... maybe forever!
I plan on using one machine as a brush basher on the property we have, and the reduction wheels are the only way to control the unts as its all a north slope with trails running around the area.
just have to get a duel set up or get the wide track axles on that I have.
