Well- when you pretty much completely lose 2 months of your life, you're forced to reschedule things. Dang. Time to mothball this project until spring. That's okay- more time to figure a few things out.

So- because I don't have enough indoor storage, I've pulled the engine and tranny out and put everything away for the winter.

You and me both, amigo. But it's okay- winter will give me a chance to plan a bit more, and work on 2 other back-burner projects- General Mayhem, and Reactor.

Looks like this weekend, a guy's gonna give me $200 for the original hydro TX off this thing. I got the tractor free, spent $20 on wheels and tires, $100 to have the 700 shipped up from the states, $10 on a Lovejoy coupler. That leaves me $70 I can still spend on this build before it actually starts costing me money... LOL

The possibility still exists, but nothing's written in stone. I have to run a tight budget, and the additional parts could add up to a pretty gnarly sum. Also- I have firmly decided on suspension, which complicates the tandem thing.

I see. Im interested to see how you were thinking about doing that... even if only chicken scratch doodle.

I dont think I will be doing any tandem axles anytime soon. Less I can find military truck axles... that I could afford. Not going to happen I dont think.
But can you imagine, 40s Dodge powerwagon Cummins powered, tandem rear and willock swivel frame? lol(Im still going to build that swivel frame gokart one of these days)

That's a "To Be Determined" thing. It could be as simple as both axles riding the same swingarm. Not ideal, but then again, better than a single axle. We'll see. Gotta balance between $ and simplicity. Cool and doable, but cheap.

Well if they were in the same swingarm that would cause an uneven wear between tires because the suspension would cause 1 axle to sit on the ground more than the other. Unless you designed in an extra swingarm design into the original swingarm and use a soft coil over to allow it to "float" over the ground

What about the pivot point being between the 2 axles? Or is that what you were thinking Doc?

That sounds like a walking beam design. I'm still up in the air on this. The problem with a walink beam is I've gotta set up the whole thing at once. I cannot just get a single rear axle in there and add the second later, which is something I may want to do.

As a Canadian, I refuse to answer on grounds that I may incriminate myself. For you 'murcans, I'ma plead the 5th amendment. Hahahahah

Actually, who the heck knows, other than I'm up to my butt in it
*More mods planned for MULE
*MULEII started
*Need to finish General Mayhem
*Need to finish Reactor
*Mods/repairs needed for the Green Machine
*Oldest son now wants a tractor (dammit. lol)
*Staring at this rear-steer transaxle hoping it doesn't turn into a completely new project

Oh, frig. Thanks man... I forgot about the DB30 chopper project. And I STILL need to rebuild my KVF400 engine. Smokes like Winston Churhill. I take that sucka for a run, and instantly destroy the mosquito population for a 100 square mile radius.

Getting back to it- Space in my garage is severely limited. I have a 14' long platform set up on 4 sawhorse, with Reactor and General on there. They are the designated winter projects, as I have no room for anything else. That will buy me time to plan for the other stuff.

Atleast you have a garage to work in. If all goes as planned with my shed Ill have a bit of a bench to work on, space that I could pull a truck into(atleast half) and then room to park my toys. Im thinking for gokarts a multilayered beefy shelf would be cool...

Ive got all kinds of ideas for this thing... Rolling Eyes
