 has any one gone through this  if you turn to the left the motor starts moving bad side to side  go to the right and nothing the motor stays still could it be a bad tranny mount or the rubber mount on the front of the motor   its hard to see what it is when your driving it looking out the side   thanks

Bad mount(s) would be my guess.  Good luck
Lots of toys for working in the bush
