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?

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:
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 6 30068710
Fixed! Fuse exposed. I don't plan on taking that all apart (having to get at the wires inside).
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 6 94543110
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 6 24810410
Back in its home! Underneath has been tucked away also.
MTD off-road romper build. - Page 6 94319010

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.
