Transaxle is locked. WARNING:IF YOU PLAN ON RUNNING WITH EXTRA SPIDER GEARS MAKE SURE ITS A EVEN NUMBER OF TEETH ON YOUR SPIDER GEARS IF NOT IT WILL NOT WORK AND OR FIT.
Method: I welded the left side axle at the top and bottom and i let the right side axle to float in the case due to vibration and lets stress on the welds by letting the right axle float.
If you have any question at all PLEASE feel free to ask me.
Lawn Mower Welded Differential/Transaxle: How To
For off road mowers, a welded differential is a huge benefit as far as
traction goes and for racing mowers almost necessary. This video shows how
to weld the differential for all time two wheel traction.
Rebuilding a lawn tractor transaxle [Part 1 of 2]
In these two videos Dave and Lynol rebuild a Tecumseh Peerless 5-speed
manual transaxle model 930-054A out of a 1996 AYP built Weed Eater. This
transaxle is very widely used on lawn tractors in 3, 4, 5, & 6 speed
configurations dating back to the early 1980's. You'll find these on brands
from Murray to Craftsman to Husqvarna, just to name a few. It is also very
similar to some transaxles made by Foote and Spicer (Dana). These videos
are a general overview on how to take them apart and a look at what's
inside. Don't let these things intimidate you; there not that complicated.
If you are good at tinkering and are mechanically minded, you can probably
fix your transaxle too!
Here's a link to a exploded diagram and parts list for this particular
transaxle so you can see what exactly is inside:

MTD Transaxle Basic Rebuild (Replacing all Bearings) Part 2 of 2
Part 2 of 2 Rebuilding / replacing bearings in my transaxle transmission
off my older model MTD mower, transaxle model 717-1050 or 717-761 and
several other models are built basically the same, but may have different
part numbers for the bearings. This is the type of transmission that has
forward neutral reverse, no actual gears in it. I show all the part numbers
at the end of of this video of all parts i replaced in this 2 part video.

Unkn0wn - Welding MQ Patrol Front diff.
The process we used to weld the front diff on my 85 mk (mq) Nissan Patrol.
The front diff is an 'open' type diff, so only one wheel will spin under
This is undesirable for off-road driving as you want as much traction as
Welding the diff is one of the cheapest options, the preferred method is
generally the installation of a good LSD diff or locked diif (auto or air
type are most common)
Obviously you may do it differently, but this is what we did :
Remove sway bar - more clearance
Remove drain plug - Drain oil
remove breather hose
Remove front cover
clean diff rigorously
weld spider gears together (both side of diff cage)
clean diff rigorously
Remove any splatter
Clean diff again (dirt and splatter will cause the diff to break)
Put drain plug back in
Attach diff cover with new gasket - this was cleaned and painted in the
refill with oil
reattach diff breather hose
