Plan was to use white and red but because of timetable issues I desided to use workplace paint shop. There is only one colour available and it is black. It took only half an hour to paint all parts. So one lunch break job.

I will add Silver to the hood and that´s it.

When I had rear axle at my hands I noticed that one important this has not been done = Brakes. Well I will add some rod to the varidrive rod somehow Very Happy one pedal should be enough.

Until next time ..........

I have worked with brake issues and now tractor should have brakes. After testings some modifications might be needed but now it is bolt on and next issues. Here is photo about the system.

http://aijaa.com/Rg2C0J


I welded short tube to the varidrive lever. Dimension should be so that brake rod is pulled only when pedal is pressed almost to floor. I welded an bolt to end of the rod so that there is some adjustment available. There is also one guide tube welded under the frame. This tube should control so that the rod is not between the belts and pulleys  Very Happy

Seat position adjustments has also started. This new position should give a bit more space to drive.

I found an warranty sticker under the seat and I am not happy about it so I will modify also that some day later Question

Change of plans I decided to aim for higher speeds so I made an rear spoiler

Not really Very Happy seat modification is now ready for painting.

Next issue is to figure out correct belt lenghts. Plan is to use ropes and adjust the lenghts with hose clamps. After I have better guess about the lenghts then I will buy new belts and most likely correct ones at once Very Happy

Small progress. New seat position is almost perfect for me so seat position issue done.

http://aijaa.com/l6XGAQ


http://aijaa.com/iL6D8H


I tryed to figure out the belt lenghts but I need to buy longer belt and after test drive I know is it correct or not. This varidrive system is too complicated to my brains Very Happy

If everything goes as movies I will have true test drive before Christmas. If this works I will make big enough Christmas package and push this under the tree lol!

I will study about the Youtube so maybe some video will be published.

All wiring done ( totally 6 wires and 2 switches but done anyway). Also front light is working with small 12V scooter battery.

Engine bolted and caples attached. Different and hopefully better belt is installed. Engine should be at running condition and tractor should move if I just add some gasoline.

Some work still to do but not so much:
- tow hitch brackets need to weld to the rear skid plate. So rear skid plate is not bolted yet.
- tow hitch has to make from some road car parts that I have
- wheels are not completely bolted. I need to find more car wheel nuts. I use those to cenralize the wheel to the custom made hubs
- some other issues that I do not know or remember Idea

I found suitable box for this Christmas present so now I just need to find big enough three and wait for the Santa Claus santa

Now I had some time to focus on this tractor. After the carburetor was opened two times and pull start repaired also two times I was able to even drive  Smile I am clad that I made groove to the frame at carburetor area.

http://aijaa.com/ggQWqt


First modification need to the custom steering is now needed. When the axle is tilted the steering arm can rotate 360 degrees. I need to add stopper also to the triangle shape frame. Now the stopper at the front axle are not limiting enough.

Luckily pull start was able turn facing back.

This tractor definately needs diff lock. Maybe some day I have learn how to do it.

Hello all. No progress on this tractor area due to the quite cold weather ( from the beginning of this year to last week we had more than -20°C all time) and some other urgent issues. Now weather is lot warmer and maybe I have some hobby time this weekend.

Anyway I have some progress with the Youtube. I think that I have everything ready to post video afro

I have only old computer so I will try to work with phone. If everything goes as plan you might see some video next week of week after that or after x perioid of time Very Happy

This might be the after x period of time but here should be two video links

https://youtu.be/8JDCkrJRBNU

https://youtu.be/BTW39ZhD90A

As you can notice some fine tuning is needed. Belt tensioner spring got loose so tractor stopped. Easy to repair no problem. Gear shifting is hard because of wrong belt lenghts or some other unknown reason. Acceleration should be easier to use. I think that both rear tires should rotate all time.

Anyway it was fun to drive and it is ready for next drive.

New year with new inspiration. It took lot of time before I managed to repair this tractor but now it is running again. The rear axle bracket bended after driving at rock section. So after that rear axle pulley was not at line with other pulleys.

Now it is running and latest modification was a bit better gas lever. Not final but it is working.

Steering is so light that my two year old son can drive this also
