Racing Mower First & Last Ride!
Took her out for a test ride, Yikes! It's pretty fast and scarry! I
couldn't get it up to speed in the yard so I took it out on the street, and
the chain falls off at high speed. Time to start rebuilding it!
How to: Build a better clutch part 1
PART 1....This is a "how to" on building a better/stronger clutch for your
off road tractor or racing lawn mower or whatever. This whole process took
about 2 weeks of working on it in my spare time. I had to custom make
everything out of spare parts I had around the garage. I Think it came out
really well. It gives an incredible amount of belt tension, fully
adjustable, and works like a dream.

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.

How Diff Lock Works and When To Use It (UK Terminology, Land Rover)
This video instructs the viewer on how the standard *CENTRE* "diff lock"
works in a permanent 4 wheel drive (4x4) vehicle, a Land Rover in this
case, and gives an idea for how and when to use it.
A Land Rover Discovery was the vehicle featured in the demonstrations, but
this video applies to any 4x4 vehicle with a center diff lock.
In summary, diff lock (whether it be the centre diff lock fitted as
standard or front/rear aftermarket diff lock) is useful in slippery
situations such as snow, ice and mud.
