Good job on the pedal. You have the two elements that make a meh-pedal into a good one. A return spring, and a stop. Much better!

"Meh" means "so-so" Or average. Nuttin to write home about.

So he means you turned what can in some cases be just a so-so pedal, into a pretty good pedal just by adding the positive stop! And I agree with him.

rear suspension for sure. i think i honestly have a way do do rear suspension on my tractor, considering i have a horizontal input shaft, so ill think about it.

Ight boys. Got an update an some pix. And some stuff fixed an whatever. Fixed a bad ideler on the clutch setup. Took a pix of it while i had skid plate off. And pix of exaust and brake componets  enjoyand the exaust has a flang in middel so it can all be removed easly. 


And this is my break setup and its a hand brake made from the threaded end of a craftsman brake linkeg cut down to fit 



And my bumper got spme stuff welded a tow eye and some light mounts onit. 
And thats about it right now. Let. Me know if airs anything else youd like ta see.

I really like it. Works great. Most of the time your hand is on the shifter so it just seamed right to put it there.

Weel its a long sad story. But thankfully its got a good ending. I use to hold my mowers up to work on them with a lil ratchet strap. Well one day my girls ( Aunna 5 an Ayaina 2) was playin out side. And i was workin on my ATLT An it was up by the bumper with strap it was when i was doing another clutch spring. Well i had turned to get something to work on it with an CRASH. I Turned around to see my mower upside down ontop of my baby girl. (At the time about 18 months. The steering wheel was on top of her. And she was hurt bad. 
Broke her femer just below the hip. 
You talk. About wonting to die i did.  It almost killed my wonting to mess with mowers. But 8 weeks latter the cast is off and she is walking the next bay. My baby (now 33 months old is fine an loves to ride daddys mower. Sow now when mower is up its with a chain and locked on where it cant fall. And the girls aint allowed around my shed when im working.

I wouldn't mind seeing more on that gas pedal.... ive been thinking on mine, I want it more realistic, and I think im going to do the same as yours, just upside down. I really like that idea!

Well, everything I do Iis bolted because I dont have a welder... but I am going to get one...
I just want to see some more pics, closer up, pinned for the pedal, and not the entire tractor... I really like the way this build is turning out! Its really interesting how one person welds their front axle solid, and another person tearsit apart and puts suspension on it! Im in way for suspension, but, im not going to tear the entire front end apart when I do it... I think im going to try to raise the front end a little, to leave room for suspension travel, then for the most part keep it stock from there. Shock towers will be quite hard with the opposed twin under that hood... and the twin is stock!
