I have a model 1430 that I just inherited from my grandfather and I got it runnig yesterday and it runs great. Motor real easy to work on. Everything seemed to be fine until I put it under a load by pulling an ATV plow and it started jumping like it was jumping in and out of drive. I have not taken the transmission apart yet or the final drive but would like to attempt that tonight. Anything to look for or maybe something common with them that is a quick fix where this is a known issue? This happened in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear.

Also, the serial number shows it is a 1671. Can you tell me what year it was anufactured in?

Here is other info on it that I found:

Model 1430
S/N 1671
Spirit of America

I think I got it figured out. I started to take down the rear grive and noticed that the axle nut holding the wheel on next to the rear gears was loose and backe off. So I bleieve this was barely making contact and when under a load, it would not stay meshed with the other gears. I took it all down and the gears look great. I think I will be in good shape. I had some broken bolts on the housing so I will put it all back together tonight. It is a 4 speed ttansmission speed 1,2,3 and rev. Would you happen to know a way to figure out the year it was made?

Sorry, I haven't ever worked on a Speedex. It just sounds like a sheared key in a keyway the way you described it.

Sounds like it could be a coupling slipping. Could also be a key sheared in the driveline.

That would be all in that housing near the rear wheel correct? not the transmission?
