Haven't updated in a long time. But I've done some stuff and some stuff has broke. I locked the tranny and it does good, the pulley alignment went out and cut two belts I've been working on that, and then the welded pulleys on the tranny finly broke so I will be doing a coupler and extensions shaft with bearing like I should have down from the start. Stay tuned

If you saw my update on this couple days ago you know the plan, but if not I'm kinda looking for a 820 and am going to make this something you can hop on and ride and not have to worry about it breaking. Lol here's some year down pics and makin the parts look new[i]



The last pic is the custom paint I did on my tailgate, I have a video of it and you can see it better

Heres some suggestions for you if you want it bullet proof

Weld the hole frame sections solid
search for a cast iron (90's) axle off a craftsman
all new steering, drag link, gears, rod ends, tierod
spindle bracing
skid plates because you ride in the seaweed
tranny skid plate
beef front and rear bumpers
brace center console

Would it be easier and better to have the craftsman or will the 820 do? Not going with bigger tires than 24in. And if my damn video didn't quit playing I mentioned full skid plate with nice slanted one on the front to slide of stuff, heavy duty one on tranny, and I was going with direct steer setup with heir joints. And beef the hell outa the frame along with making a new custom dash/console to fit the hood I was wanting.

Yes, and to your previous post, sounds good, i dont see any problem with direct steer other then it will be a little hard to turn the wheels

True.... Maybe I could use the old blown spicer gears to make a geared steering that is tight, smooth, and easy but not able to skip teeth and such

Going to finish up getting the engine painted and the main components back on then start on the frame again. Goin for three link cool overs on front, and I have the wheels and tires picked out. But I need that 820 first before I order anything like that

I have a 20hp Briggs vtwin, runs great so my option is to put it on redo my exhaust, both engine runs great the only different it will have is it's a twin with about 6 more hp and however much more torque. Putting the twin and the tires I want will have me searching for super belt tension ideas. What should I do? Keep rolling with the single 14hp or start over with the 20hp

Here's more teardown and supplies I got to beef frame. And the donor mower with a hydro that just died. It's a 2006 20hp intek vtwin. 2 barrel carb and pressure lubricated. Should be pretty dependable.
