Nice to see some pics. Seems like Christmas with getting new part for mowers, seance i never get anything new for mine anyways, so its always extra exiting haha. i saw some snow hogs that looked like 18" tall, pretty much the ultimate front tires. maybe i can get my hands on some some time.

Another picture update and stuff.  Redoing my clutch.  My belt really worked me over. Long story short, the original clutch was junk and I built a double pulley one for it.  Pics are a thousand words..

Ordering front tires soon.  Also was playing with bumper placement.

=`w`= 
Well I got both my bumpers mounted today and yesterday. My tires will be here this coming Friday.  I also made some belt gates (mowron style, sorta).  After that I will just need to finish the wiring when i wired up the oppy it didn't charge. I just need to make a short wire that connects to the stub of one that comes out from the shroud, to the battery side of the solenoid.

Pics of the work will follow in the next post!

Ahh I like pictures. Bumpers are great, and the black is nice. Stock exhaust I see, any plans for that?

I have some GoPro footage.  I will put it up after I finish the tractor itself.

I'm getting the tires today! I also painted the bumpers back to the flat black (I had to go to Wal*Mart LOL).  I also am going to finish the rear belt gate. I also can't forget to hook up my charging wire.

Will I get it done today? Cliffhanger...

If you look carefully you may see that I don't have my brake rod hooked up.  That is because i bent it and had to straighten it out. LOL

Red- I am currently thinking about switching in the V-Twin out of my old off roader.  I am looking at the wiring and such now.  If I think I can get it in before the build off ends then I will.  So far the wiring looks like a mess so I am in thought about it.

WAIT I LIED! Well actually I got bored today and DID switch in the V-Twin.  All I need to do Is check my wiring and make sure the fuel pump is still good. THEN I will be done! LOL

Pics will be up tonight or tomorrow.

Well, long story short.  That project will be going on later when I have adequate room to work.  Right now I have too much space in the shop taken up with my "junk" (that is what everyone BUT me calls it).  So maybe I can move my "junk" up into my barn.  Hopefully that will be coming on in about a year and maybe a half.



On a Different Note


I got the V-Twin in like I said.  Here is a picture of the progress.

" />

Just need to finish the wiring. Also found out that you should put allen head bolts in your exhaust on these motors. Long story short, you can't get your wrench in there to put the rear bolts in. LOL  So I think I might have some of those. Didn't want to go home today because I was starting to get nervous about the end of the build off creeping up on me. Hopefully tomorrow is another successful day in the shop.  

Stuff to finish with the motor swap:
-Finish the wiring
-Other two motor mounts
-Exhaust bolts
-Flywheel Shroud (had to take it off due to clearances on other tractor)
-Pulley (needs bolted back on)

Everything that I mentioned above is done.  I had it running today, and it runs like crap. My friend who is a motor whizz said that I need to adjust the air fuel mix because it DOES sound like it is flooding itself a little bit when you mash the throttle. So that is on the agenda for tomorrow. THEN! I will be one. Hopefully. I will also need to put some video up sometime soon. Got lots of POV footage, which includes a road trip and some mud. This took place when I still had the oppy so it is a little old. But it still is footage.

Also I named it.  It is now officially dubbed... The Screamin' Demon.  That is because the tranny whines louder than the motor's exhaust! LOL

Dang thing got a flat.  I pushed it into my storage shed (16' van trailer LOL) along with my other mower.  I think I might get ags when these tires wear out.  I think ags will do better than these will anyways.  Also gotta cut the hubs off my axle in the back and put bearings in the tranny case.  I took it apart a few days ago and added some grease and found out that the case is getting eaten away severely from the axle is rubbing it.

If anyone has some bearings that would fit in the case and they would like to send to me (for cheap) just shoot me a PM.

Well my Ag tire dream came true.  Yesterday my buddy drove to work with these brand new ags in the back of his pick-up.  He asked if he could trade me some small ags (tiller size) for his 20x10-8 ags.  I was like heck yeah!!!  So I mounted them up and I even lowered the fenders a little bit more.  Took about an inch out (from stock height).  Also revamped ye olde trailer to do some stuff with my cousin today. the update on that is in it's thread. (check my sig for the trailer thread)  Here is some stuff to look at.
