Its not as loud as my first stack just because it directs it down to the ground and not up to my face. Idles pretty quiet and is a deep growl when you WOT it. I Like it this way. Might put an angle on it to direct it out more or maybe go under the running boards and out. but its fine the way it is. Last time I went to start it It just went ZZZZZZZZ.. The piece that sit ontop of the gear before the washer was gone. Swapped in a different starter and it starts better than ever now.

Well guys here is somewhat of an update. Bolens has been going great ever since we swapped in that trans. But recently make a snow plow the cheap way, wood. Its just a couple 2x4s nailed together and then 2 2x4s that hook onto the deck lift holes. drilled a hole in it and used a length of paracord tu use as my lift. just pull it and it lifts. works good. need some weight to put o nthe plow and on the rear axle. Probably gonna make a detachable weight post on the rear and some simple ones on the plow to put the concrete weights that you benchpress. I have a bunch of them.


Plow up..


Down.

Hey guys! Took her in some mud!
Couple days later was mudding again and broke the stock weld on the spindle and steering arm so the wheel could move wherever it wanted.



I added a piece to my exhaust just so it all ran down.


Switched my back tires to pulling tractor tires and we got it stuck in this rut. Doesn't look deep but it is. Also you can see my rear bumper.



And sadly, for the second time, is where my axle snapped. It is still sitting there. All sad. Covered in mud and snow..

The picture where the front wheel is turned a lot is where the steering arm broke. But the rear axle snapped too.
Gonna try to get the 820 today Stretch.

Not fun fixing broken stuff when you feel like riding around, but at least you can say you broke a whole bunch of stuff. It's boring if nothing ever breaks. Nifty pictures.

Hey guys been a while since an update. Broke the axle a day before new years and just got it out of the ice yesterday. In the process of getting it out I may have bent my rim and definitely bent my "good" axle. So I need to get a new trans or cut the old axles out and weld new in. Also took the 11 horse flatty out and am swapping in an 18 horse oppy. Also I am going to rewire the hot wire for the headlights to the ac wire like they are supposed to so it doesn't drain my battery if I drive at night. Im not sure how I want to do the exhaust on this one yet, thinking about doing short stacks one on each side with flappers on each one. Or maybe making a 2 into 1 header and one stack or a side pipe. I don't have much room between the wheel and where it would have to go to do sidepipes so dual stacks is probably what im going to do.
