So here's a little story to go along with a build.....I moved into this new house like 7-8 months ago and found a lawn mower up in the barn and i asked the person who we are renting from who's it was and he said i could have it so i figured i would mow with it until we got another mower and then on its first run the motor seized up so it sat for about 3 weeks and then my buddy gave us a parts mower and said we could have the motor off it and its 12.5 hp Tecumseh and after mounting it up and starting it i found out i smokes and it burns a lot of oil so were not going to mow with it and i think im going to turn it into a mudder. but i need help and ideas to make it better and stronger so could u guys help me out....here are some pics..
