Ok paint isn't done, but I made something today. Ive always had a problem with the belt slipping as you see in previous pictures, but I dint do anything. I came up with a idea for it today, and was simple enough. Heres what I did:
Its now a double pully clutch, with two clutch springs, tention much?






And heres my adjuster, its a nut welded to a bolt. tighten from the other side.

Sorry I didn't get anymore clear pics. flash Is crappy.

Here you guys go! I know you have been waiting. Hope you like it! 3 days of work!
All apart!


Rims, bumpers, console, seat, batt box, seat springs, all painted flat black.





Shoot the hood and rear fender white-the base color.


Taped the rear fender and hood off.



Supplys!

Paint it!

-as for the hood, stars and metallic (metal flake) blue paint.



Start peeling everything off!



when I peel the tape off it bleeded thru the line in the tape, common. I went over it with a brush.



As for the hood, it get the same treatment, incorrect painting is fixed, and I brought it out in the sun to show that awesome blue!






lots of work!

Didn't see that edit, I will make a thread for it if youd like, it has a 5hp Tecumseh, roolcage, knobbys, sytrifical clutch, and seatbelts. When I was 10, me and my dad totally rebuilt it. im fixing it up to sell it.

Time for wiring. When I got it ready for a test ride, the wires were just pulled out of the way of any moving parts-zip tied. it was a rats nest when I pulled it apart:

Fixed! Fuse exposed. I don't plan on taking that all apart (having to get at the wires inside).


Back in its home! Underneath has been tucked away also.


I plan on making a forward axle brace too, and working more on new gas/brake petals. getting close to done!

I personally don't like enclosing my wires because I hate tearing stuff open for troubleshooting... that said, that's an awful purty wiring job!

Lol, I said earlier that there isn't much going on in the wires I bunched up, like no connections or fuses. I can totally see where youre coming from tho.

Anyways, heres what I did with the steering. Farley simple, fixes the problem with the ball popping out, but adds a hair more slack in the steering. I plan on doing direct steer soon.


Heres what the front looks like



And heres the hood. almost don't just need a pin to hold it on at the dash.



open ends of the wrench straddle these rods.




More work being done fri night but im busy the whole weekend. Oh well that's life!
