PostSubject: Project Corbett buggy   Sat Apr 26, 2014 12:07 am

k2500life is building 2 buggies and I decided I'd build one with him. I've started by cutting 2 mowers up to make one long one and have built the deck outline.
I still have to build the uprights and front wheel hubs and make spacers for the back.

whoever's build it actually is, should be the person. we have the 3 of you posting builds for eachother, and its getting hella confusing.

Yes willis923 that is why I started another topic for my buggy.

I got all my main frame done and bolted and got my front tires on. Will put pics up tomorrow when there's light. All I have to do is make wheel spacers for the back and build my clutch and shifter

I just got a brand new 21hp single cylinder briggs platinum engine and was wondering if I should swap out my 14.5 for it. I'm wondering if It will take the water and mud

That's what I was thinking. I got it because my moms mower blew the engine and she had a warranty on it so they gave her a new one and I kept the old one to rebuild.

i gotta ask. whats the purpose of having the platform and everything several feet up, but having the engine so low... you'll swamp the engine before the water even thinks of touching the platform

Everything will be snorkel so that it can run in deep water. And mine is mainly just so I have something to drive at Corbett because nothing I own is big enough and out there it's a lot of deep water. I was thinking about entering this into the build off but I thought of it to late.
