Yep, you're just as close to finishing as me, in theory, mine will be running and driving in 1 week.

New update on mine CC, it started. I jump started it off my neighbors truck, not as loud as your mower but still respectable. Still have to get new sparkplugs, but now I know it works, so I can spend money on it.

Well guys ignore my last post, I was being stupid, I have decided that I'm rebuilding this thing to be a monster! I'm planing on lifting (of course), getting a right angle gear box from my friend, a starter for my 23hp Kohler, a 1" axle and 1" bore pillow block bearings, and probably some 27" Kenda Executioners Twisted Evil

I did a lot of work on this during the 3 hours i got to work on it this weekend, it has the 20 hp single cyl Kohler, 820, 19" Wan Da's on the front and 27x12x12 Firestone ag tires in the back. All i need to do now is weld up the exhaut, weld spindles, put on the pulleys and belt then she'll romp!

Speaking of huge mowers, my lil murray will no longer be little, it will be a big mower just like the lifted used to be, the lifted will be 3 times the size of what it used to be!
