PostSubject: general lee tractor   Fri Mar 01, 2013 6:57 pm

ok, i have been working on my tractor recently and i would like to mix 3 variables together: fast, atv-like, and for show. first thing that came to mind, a general lee themed tractor. so, i am going to paint it orange and put the same decals on it as the car did. also, make it go about 25 pinned in 6th gear. for tires, im thinkin 20-23" back knobbys, and turf-saver fronts. I want to build a sports style muffler to make the 19hp opposed twin sound sorta like the 440 in the car (any suggestions?). the bumper is going to be the exact same too, and i want to put a real charger steering wheel on it. For finishing touches, a dixie horn! so, i need to ask you guys your opinion on it and i need all the help possible, and if i do this (i have to wait for money to do it), pictures and vids will come!

Sounds like a plan. If you intend on jumping it see about some front suspension maybe?

Cant wait to see some pics.

You can jump about anything.... you just need to be able to clean up the mess Wink

Me too, Very Happy seems to me I remember an incident ivolving a 70's vintage ten speed bicycle and a picnic table.

The spokes on both rims looked like sphagetti after the impact, Apparently, I survived, but it hurt

Awesome, do it! I have no idea how to get a hemi sound out of a twin, maybe just go wit a simple straightpipe or side pipe. My tractor has no exhaust what so ever (sorry rules) and it sounds like a race car. Smile

i was planning a pipe with a small pancake muffler that ran to under the running boards to try not to get the cops called on me, trust me, ive got the cops called on me before even though its stock, the worst part is i live in a very small town where people dont care about things!!!!!!!!!

Oooh ya you'll want to run quiet if you live in a neighborhood.

Is this from converting or from the camera, looks like a codec error.
