Thanks for telling me aboutOutdoor distributors. Axle pivot was $49.63, left axle was $20.94, right axle was $22.05.
These are genuine MTD replacement parts.

You will have to take some more pictures, tractor and bucket. I would like to see the bucket. Are you going to keep the bucket or sell it? Is the tractor a 848 or what? What size motor?Here's one I'm picking up next month. Comes with a front bucket too! This is the only photo I have
my tractor looks exactly like that, have you found useful videos on repairs? I am trying to replace belts, and want to work smarter, not harder,drive belt is slippingHere's my LOWES '93 - MTD # 144Q848H052, Brigss # 422707, 18 hp trin II I/C. The carb has the idle mixture screw, but not the main jet mixture screw.
I have replaced the fuel filter, throttle control, fender mounted 1-7 drive detent plate, and chassis to deck drive belt (with an MTD one !). Also relubed the starter bearings, they were dry.
It has a three bag debris catcher and front wheel weights. PO bought it new, left it with the property last year. Note the compression pressure it develops, COLD. It came with zerks on the front axle spindle bearings.
I'm planning on checking the valve lash, since I have a bit of clicking that goes away totally once warmed up. Would have liked to have known it from new, but no basis. First experience with the flat twin. I think it has around 1000 hours.
Why did you rebuild yours, and what did you replace? Did you have to adjust the valve lash (grinding off the top of a new valve stem or lapping the existing valves into their seats a little ) ?
