Got everything put together and lights wired. Switches in the dash. Took it outside for a test run and to check how well the lights work hooked direct off the coil. Seems the tail lights fry at high rpm, must be too much voltage without a regulator? Who knows, but doesn't seem to hurt the head lights. So that's the 1st thing to fix.

As for the actual test ride... I had the front wheels toed in pretty heavy before, I thought this would help with the quick steering and jumpy handling. Turns out it makes it worse. I set toe to about zero (front wheels straight ahead) and it seems to handle a lot better that way. Steering seems a lot less quick. So that's the good news. BAD NEWS is that something chewed itself up inside the peerless 700 glass transmission... I think probably the shift keys. Had some belt drag issues where it would keep spinning with the clutch in, so a couple times I tried to knock it into 1st gear quick. Pretty sure it didn't like that. So the trans has to come back out so I can take it apart. Other than that, I think it's mostly done. Maybe add some belt guides, probably bolts that stick up through the skid plate should do it. I hope nothing serious got ruined too bad, I do have a spare 700, but hate to burn one up so fast. Hardly any use on this one at all.

Thanks stuntman jon and craftsmanquad, the 700 only has 2 keys I'm pretty sure. Haven't felt like tearing it apart yet....big surprise there. But one of these days I'll fix it up.

The GTR is now back at the shop to finally repair the transmission issue. Also I'll add a few belt guides so there is less belt drag in neutral and hence less damage to fragile trans parts when banging it into 1st. At least that's what I think happened.

I started the engine today and warmed it up a bit, still runs perfect...once you can get it started. Not having a good choke setup and having to pull start it means you have to get everything just right for it to stay running. As soon as it's warmed up a bit it's fine. Takes the throttle nice and smooth and you can step on it pretty quick.

Once the transmission is fixed, then I have to decide if I should keep it or sell it. I'm leaning towards selling it before I break anything else.

^that "out the window" shot.....nice right?

I'm having a bit of a belt drag issue with the MTD recently as well. I think belts and clutches are my least favorite thing to mess with. It'd be cool if ya kept this one mr.mod, it would look cool on a trailer behind the Simplicity!

If you sell it you gotta at least get some good footage of it first ! Getting kinda tired of watching that one video over and over, lol

I remember way back when I rarely had access to youtube and had no idea ATLTF existed, I found your video testing the dual carbs. Then I watched all your videos on the Baja Sears. Thought it was pretty cool that you were doing something really different than the Murray Widebody everyone was doing. Your channel was one of the ones that really got me interested in modding tractors

Good to see the GTR back out. Like Rich said, got to get some good footage before you do!

Thanks. I probably should at least get some video of it on dirt at high speed. We'll see what happens. Wish I had a good place to put all this stuff. Maybe I could hang this from the ceiling!

And rich, thanks for checking out my video's. I wish I had time to make them more often. I'd like to edit a good one of the simplicity too, didn't get around to it yet.

Finally fixing the GTR shift key problem.



After removing the seat, you can get the transmission cover off and access the gears without removing the transmission. What a relief that was...


The keys were damaged but not as bad as I expected. Replaced them and now it has four keys instead of two.

Thanks, I will try to get some videos if I can yeah. I didn't completely fix the belt drag issue yet, but that just needs more belt guides. Also I still have a drive chain jumping issue. I'm not sure if the entire trans mount flexes under heavy load allowing the chain more slack or what. But I did try it out on the road and it goes along pretty fast and with plenty of power. It's pretty much a death machine because the lack of rear suspension and quick steering. The back end is extremely light, so when you hit some light bumps at speed on a turn and you bounce up off the seat, you can feel the back end scrubbing even on dry pavement. I think if it broke loose at all you would flip it. Probably would grab right away. I watched the front suspension on the road and it soaks up a lot of smaller imperfections, so that part works good. Brakes are more or less good enough. Maybe not for quick stops from full speed but not bad. I found out if I want to slow down quick I get on the brakes and also flip off the ignition. The engine braking is a huge help.
