Ok so without hurting myself to bad I swapped the front axle need to make a bushing and spacers for it also need to cut the tierod and get heims for the ends to link it all together the front axles are 3/4" so pretty sturdy for what I wanna do though at almost 45 degrees of articulation its gonna need shocks lol



She is flexible lol



Nice wide stance too!

Tire clearance may be an issue as well at full articulation with the sheetmetal installed... may wanna watch the exhaust and tire clearance when ya get to it

Update!:

Ok so I have been busy practicing welding and trying to get back into the groove (it isnt working but w/e gorrilla welds!) I bought some angle and a piece of flatstock burned them together real nice then drilled my holes ground for clearance and got them attached to the frame! I messed around with it last weekend and today the only 2 warm days so far \o.o/



yeah... she sits pretty high lol plenty of clearance for the executioners!



More than likely going to have to make a reese style 2" dropdown hitch so I dont end up flipping her when I go to pull stuff



Pulley hangs pretty low but that shouldnt be a issue I will get around to making a tranny plate sometime to cover everything



I am going to reuse the tie rod but instead of the little ball cup joints they will be replaced with heims



Fits like a glove! a glove that needs some grinding and idlers to run properly lol...



The shifter is bent in a kinda S shape so I will more than likely have to heat it up and straighten it out to get enough clearance to shift it and not end up with a ball buster



My crappy ass welds :p but they hold!


Annnnnnnnnd just as a reminder of what she was and what she is!

Heh I'll get a flex pic in the morning if is nice enough need to get collars for the spindles so I can keep the front tires from falling off. I like the stack idea t dub I'll have to see if I can run the pipes out either side or turn the motor and just make some belt guides! May have to get Doug to get some pics of the work gt's belt setup.

Ive ran a few of those trannys, all with 6 inch motor pulleys and stock tranny pulleys. gives ya a nice speed for working, and still fast enough to not be bored just getting from place to place. also I dont know if you have plans to put another mount up top like the factory uses, but I would highly recommend it, we had problems with ours when we first started riding sears and would be two lazy to put the top bolts back in, other than that it looks good

Update!:

Ok so I get stuff for the steering to bulletproof it just a tad bit more and tinkerd with mocking up a lil something for Tdub!



As she sits right now steering works freaking great!



Fleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeex!

























A special one for tdub decided they looked better both on one side than seperated :p

But yeah she clears sheet metal though I imagine with taller tires may have to get a couple more collars so I dont have clearance issues but well see!
