I've been busy doing other things but figured out what I want to do for brakes. Being a bit O/C decided to go with a 6" disc brake instead of the original mechanical brake, just have to make my own hub. Not necessary I guess but seems like something I have to do. On to transaxle. Soaked pully,brake, and hub screws/bolts overnight in penetrating oil, still wont budge. Sandblasted the case today. It was all my little siphon feed sandblaster could do. Going to replace axle housing to case bolts, and the case to cover bolts. The head of one of the axle housing bolts was twisted off when I received it and darned if I didn't twist another one off. Anyway a friend of my pops has a welder with a carbon torch gonna take it to him tomorrow, and hope I can get them loose that way. There Is not going to be a lot of clearance for the new transaxle but measurements say it will fit. I can't wait to finish cleaning up the transaxle so that I can work on mounting it into the chassis.
