one thing with 4x4 drive is that you haft to have a the tires the same size all the pulleys the same size and when you start make shire that you masher it that the tractor is hire in the front then the rear

The tires match up the pulleys look close I'll have to measure I can also change them no big deal.

So I've been planning this out over the last few days and I think I'm gonna set my drivetrain up like Puppetkickers. I already have a jackshaft from lifting the mower and it wouldn't be hard to put another pulley on the shaft.

u really should have washed it before u put it up you can ruin the paint all your bearings and your belt can dry up but anyways love to see it as a 4x4 dont lock the front axle when u put it in so u r not putting so much stress on it good luck

I washed it. Thats just a old picture of it I was to excited to get working on it.




I got that done a week before school but I haven't been home in a few weeks been helping on a project at school.


We removed the 3rd piston from the ship's main engine



Its only a 6 cylinder diesel that makes 8,000hp Cool

Bajeebus, how did you get into ships? Looks cool. And I'm not sure how well a hydro will work with a hearses axle, maybe a bit of binding

I'm going to college for Power Engineering at a Maritime school so diesel lab is tearing apart the Training Ship State of Maine's main engine and generator engines down for maintenance. I'm gonna try the hyrdo just to see what happens but I have another 800 series to swap the knuckles on to to match my rear transaxle.

How many gallons per mile do you get with that ship's engine?

Not exactly sure if I remember correctly it uses like 80 tons of fuel a day at its cruising speed of 14 knots. I think it works out to like 50 miles per gallon.

With pistons that size, I have to think that is a typo. And you meant 50 gallons per mile. Wink

That's not entirely true. On the surface and in it's simplest form, yes. But- it is very possible (and IS done more frequently than you might think) to have 4x4 with much larger rear tires than front. How is it done? Simple mathematics.

Quickie example- You've chosen some front and rear tires. Measuring the diameters, you have determined that the fronts are 25% smaller than the rears (just a blind example). So whaddya do? Well- those fronts are going to therefore cover 25% less distance per revolution than the rears. So- calculate the rear final drive ratio, and increase that number by 25%. Using careful pulley/sprocket/gear selection, all you have to do is make that frontend turn 25% faster. Done. That easy.

Though 80 tons of fuel a day sounds like a lot the main engine isn't using all of the fuel. A good chunk goes to the ships three turbo diesel generators which definitely aren't small. As for the piston size



There two or two and a half feet in diameter(can't remember off the top of my head). And about three feet in length.

Looks like a cool build. Lots of great ideas.
