I have a 724 with small wheels and 3 bolt axle hubs. I have a drive unit from an 832 with the larger 4 bolt wheel and axle hubs. Is it possible to swap the four boat axles and hubs onto the 724 with the three bolt axles and hubs? I would like the larger tire and wheels on the 724. Any suggestions would be great!

Swapping wheels

If the axels are the same size, the bolts that go through the axel are the same size and the tires don't hit something on the chassis then it should work I would expect. I've changed some out from hard rubber to pneumatics before on other brands but it was a tight fit on those machines.

I figured it out.... very simple actually. I had to drive a pin out of the end of the axle shaft on the differential side allowing for the axle to separate at the large gear inside. Just a matter of slipping the new axle in and bolting on the larger tires. She looks a little like an old car with big tires and a jacked up rear end...LOL but I am hoping to keep traction in heavy snow and the large tires with chains should be the ticket.
Thanks for your response...and it looks like the weather man is calling for 1-3 inches of snow for my area on Wednesday :) Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
