PostSubject: lifted craftsman   Tue Feb 26, 2013 8:58 pm

so because its been raining for most of the past three weeks, i had no school today Very Happy so i was out workin in the yard and got to thinkin bout my plans to build a lifted mower, been wanting to for a long time, so i went through the scrap pile and got what i needed and started on it, i got most of the front lift done,all i have to do is put in the supports and find a better front axle than the one i have, but i wont be able to work on it again till next week, cause i have to work till next week, im taking the 18 hp off the racing mower project and donating it to this build, im lookin for the foot boards to be about 24-30" inches off the ground, i have a set of 25x11.5x9s for the back and a set of 20x10x8s for the front. im still trying to figure out the steering tho and im planning on runnig two batteries in series like on our old diesel truck for more power cause im wanting head lights tail lights and i have a old cop spotlight for it and im trying to figure out how to mount a alternator on it and i have a plan for the electric clutch that was on it lets just say it will be a lil insurance for "when" i get stuck, not "if" Twisted Evil also have a hand crank winch for it. im going to run a six in. pulley on the transaxle and the stock three in. on the front, i got to order a new starter for the motor this weekend after i get paid, then all i need is a coupler,and a 3/4 in. pillow block, and please all the advice from yall will help, i actually plan on tryin to finish this one, not like the other builds of mine in the past that i havent, the racer i decided to wait on because i dont really have anywhere to ride it. and the cub is just sitting there, everything ready to be bolted in place, but im scared to hook it up cause if the rearend is messed up that will cost an arm and a leg lol

It looks like it leans to the right? Might just be because the pics arent the greatest.

I never did figure out how to do my shifter setup because my axle wasnt designed for my lawnmower but you should be able to figure it out
