    anyone who thinks this mower is too slow is nuts. there is no kit to speed it up. use your imagination and invent something yourself

    Nevermind i found that you can take gears out if a 10552 and put them in the 10323back and it will be quicker.

    Unless part numbers have been superceded, you will also need the output shaft from the EasyStride transmission as well--at least the part numbers are different. If you're going to use new parts, the change over isn't cost effective as the output shaft for the EasyStride is $70 and change.

    A simpler solution would be a smaller pulley on the transmission--how much smaller would require some pencil pushing.

    did this a few yrs ago after reading bout it to a 10323. don't remember the part numbers but recollect it involved switching out 2 gears. worked out good.

    Manager, not only does the output shaft numbers differ but also the input gear. Check out LawnBoy's website. As I indicated before, it's possible that numbers have been superceded and that can be checked out at a LB dealer.
