i have a Montgomery Ward with an 11hp Briggs flathead. my goal by next spring is to make it a reiable, running machine. By summer, i want to do the mods that i have found.
By spring,
Replace the wiring
Direct steering
New battery
Start cleaning up rust  
patch the rust holes
paint the frame, seat, hood and body
check seals and bearing on everything
New fuel line and filter
By summer,
Pulley swap
new tires
possibly handlebars
headlights
new brake setup
The point is to make it like an atv. A multipurpose machine for me to get around on and enjoy myself. I wish i could put some pictures up, but i cant right now, but i will update as i go.

Sounds a worthy jop Have been doing my Westwood Gazelle W11 up and converting it to run with PTO . Its been fun I fitted a car battery instead of the crappy tractor battery which is 99% better. I changed my wheels to run adapters to make the wheels easier to fix with punctures. I look forward to seeing your progress. Regards Martin

Sure! Let us see what you have going!

I would add a gas pedal to the plans for your atv... unless you are planning to use a hand throttle.

UPDATE 1: More rust than i thought. Hopefully gonna get an angle grinder to speed up the removal process. Im going to look the transaxle by doing "The Doc Locker" http://www.atltf.com/t2789-locking-a-peerless-transaxle-the-doc-locker the link. I want to get the rust cleaned up, have the motor running good, and start working on the steering by Christmas. With turkey, pheasant, and deer season starting up, progress will slow down. After that, i cant think of any delays so thats good.

UPDATE 2:I bought some rust converter for the major rust spots. It turns the rust into a black primer that you paint over. Now i have to wait 24 hours for it to be ready to be painted. I did most of the hood bout 20 minutes ago and im going to do the seat in a little bit. By monday the seat will be painted and finished. Hopefully the hood will be done monday also.

UPDATE 3: I got the seat, back cover, and most of the front taken off or apart. I primered and almost got done painting the seat and pieces tht it is held on by. I also started priming the back cover, but i ran out of primer halfway through. When i finish all that, ill finish taking apart the tractor and paint it. ill get the motor all set after that. Finally, ill clean up the rims and repaint them also. Hopefully i can get the steering fixed after all that is done.
