Do you have any photos or measurements that would help with knowing how much needs to be removed from the bull gear and from which side?            :thanks:

Shaved one side of the bull gear down to fit it in the 1054 case.

No photos or measurements, sorry. From what I can remember it was about a 1/4 inch off the side of the bull gear where the drive gear for it splines stopped. I did it with a 90 degree die grinder and a sanding disk. It didn’t take very long just grind a little and try to fit it. You have to make sure that it won’t bind at all so just take your time and some trial fits. If my memory is right there was a post on here a few years ago that had pictures of doing this.

We are talking about where the bull gear would hit the bottom of the 11 teeth part of the mushroom gear.  I think you can see in this picture where the bull gear might be hitting.  Grinding off some of the bottom edge of the bull gear would solve the issue.  The bull gear is wide enough to do this without sacrificing strength.  You can see the bull gear in the center left of this picture...it is at least 2" wide.  :occasion-xmas:

Yes. That is what you have to make sure clears. It isn’t much you have to take off. Just make sure after your done it doesn’t bind anywhere in a full turn. Other than that you will have to grind slots in the axles for snap rings. I know the 953 axle are different lengths and the 8 pinion axle are the same length. All I did was put the in so they were close to the same and put one of the hubs in a little to make up the difference.

Brandon, I hate to say this, but you and I have some things in common...we do not need chains or wheel weights.  :orcs-cheers:   Probably not much weight in the front end, you put a blower or a blade on there and I bet you would be OK.   No such thing as tight pinions...:banana-linedance::banana-linedance:

The horse looks fantastic Mate.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Brandon, my Honey's 657 does the same thing...

She also has those small Tri rib tires in the front.

Those steer great on dry ground but any moisture such as mud or snow and you have to really fight for control.

I would highly recommend trying to get some kind of front weight on that machine.

As Steve said, that machine looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

It has been a pleasure helping you get this horse up and running.  The fact that it now shifts and runs fantastic is music to my ears.  Enjoy your ride Mate.  :occasion-xmas:

You know...we have a bunch of threads talking about tri-ribs and snow...really need weight in the front for those.  Definitely better plowing dirt.

yeah eric i never had ribbed tires before so i figuired when i got them they would work good in the snow but guess not

 

There are two things you could do that would help you out quite a bit

 

 

One is to make the front end heavier.

Whether you put fluid on the inside of the tires or Steel on the outside of the tires, or preferably both.... or, you could also get some weight on the front of the frame if you have the space to do so.

 

 

The other thing would be a little more difficult with a tri rib tire but I think you could pull it off.

Get some number 40 roller chain. Like motorcycle chain. Get that wrapped around the tire to form a second outside bead of tread and the steel of the chain will bite in substantially better than the single rib of rubber.
