PostSubject: Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit )   Tue Mar 19, 2013 11:38 am

I have been working with tractor since i can remember. Ive been tractor pulling for a few years and i kept on asking how fast does it go! it only went like 5 mph. So now i decided to make a racing tractor.

[img][/img]
I started with a pos it didnt move didnt crank over didnt stear. IT DIDNT DO NOTHING!!! $30 you cant go wrong

[img][/img]
Started taking it apart and getting rid of all the wires.

[img][/img]
The oil was solid BLACK and slidgy. the whole combustion chamber was full of oil, gas and water.

[img][/img]
Rear push bar.

[img][/img]
Footrails and dual exhaust.

[img][/img]
Brush guard.



[img][/img]
Got a hood mounted.

[img][/img]
Got a 6 speed spicer.





[img][/img]
Got a set of fender mounted and want muddin!



[img][/img]
Filled in holes in fenders and made a belt plate.

[img][/img]
Remade the shifter.

[img][/img]
Filled in the holes and made the dash fit the hood nicely and got all new wires, switches and indicator lights.

[img][/img]
Mad wheelie bar and i just need to mount the wheels.

[img][/img]
Took the muffler out and mad it a straight pipe dual exhaust.



[img][/img]
got a bunch of parts powder coated.

[img][/img]
putting it back together.

Very cool! That montgomery ward hood and grille looks really good on that frame, especially with the cube Craftsman fenders.

I actually have that tractor, but it had an 18.5hp Intek twin (which is now in a different tractor).

Take it on a speed run yet?

thanks guys i put ALOT!!! of work in it.

[img][/img]
the hood and grill is off a WHITE tractor


the footrails are off of a cow pusher off my friends pickup

[img][/img]
[img][/img]
( that shifter in this pic i tryed and it worked but it was very sloppy and i couldnt get into 6th gear. )
i have a 5 1/2 inch engine drive pulley and a 3 inch rear end pulley
the drive pully is nicley centered but it isnt completly flat so it has a slight wobble
and i think im gonna try to put a bigger drive pulley like a 8 or 9. but then ill need to move the clutch because it almost hits the drive pulley

Looks to me to be the second cleanest build on this entire site...(Behind a lifted craftsman, that was already in condition.

I like the height it sits too, most of the guys on here have racers that would be to top heavy to have and speed behind them.
