Auger gearbox swap

OK guys.....I know someone here must have tried this and can save me some work. Has anyone ever tried to swap a 10000 series gearbox for a 924 series?....or mount an older bucket assembly on the newer tractor? I want to try.....

10000 series Does Not Fit. IIRC, an early 924 with cast iron gearbox will bolt to ST Series.

Hey Cranman, I modified one for a friend. Just had to move the 4 mounting tabs up exactly 1", in my pixx i had a 10HP chassis from a ST 1032 i was rebuilding. What you need to be sure of is which model / style gearbox your swapping, older ones have splines for the clutch dog to slide on and newer ones like Jackmels suggested as it will have just a plain shaft for the pulley to mount to. Also had to remove the lower belt guard that was mounted to the chassis.

PS.... Can anybody explain why the forum rotates my uploaded pixx. Thankxx

Cranman, as Shaw pointed out, anything can be done, IF you have: the tools, knowledge, experience, money, desire and ambition. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should. It can be fun, exciting and you will have a tremendous sense of accomplishment. But you can never get the money OR time you invest in that back. Very frustrating..... I know, I've tried. I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks, with a Phd and Busted Knuckles. GLuck, Jay

Thanks Shaw and Jay...I haven't got to the point of trying the older bucket on the 8-24, but they seem to be very similar. Not a big deal to put a pulley over the splines on the older bucket.....I've got other projects ahead of me right now, but it doesn't look that hard...nice job on that welding Shaw....My motto as I've aged is " if something is difficult......it's just not worth doing" Homer Simpson.

Here's a ST with Early 924 Auger. This one is a Frankenstein, ST724, 8hp engine, and 924 auger with cast iron gearbox. Upon first inspection, PO had carb linkage set up wrong.
