Yeah it does, you need some big heavy tires to counter weight it!

p.s. Is that your j-body in your pic? I know my way in and out of those things! Looks like your shaving everything?

WOW! I like that Cub! What model is it? Looks like an early model.

If this wasnt so top heavy this would be asesome off road. The dulies on the back would help a good bit! Looks mean.

What colour paint is that blue? I really like it. Looks like pretty tough paint too.

Keep the updates coming
cheers

How stable is that thing? Since its for parades it should be allright- for offroad or mudding , i definitly wouldnt trust it....

Its a cool idea tho. Im the opposite- i want to lower most my tractors n make em fast- LOL!

I coulda bot one similar to it at a thrift store for like under $5- with the hub n everything - i probably shouldve. At the same store ive found spark plug wires and brand new brake pads super cheep there (i bot those tho).

Quick tip of the week: check out flea markets n thrift stores- y can find alot of good stuff there sometimes- i bot my golf kart wheels all 4 with tires for $40- bot a 'true' rc car there for $5 - with controller n everything.

If it starts when y jump it, then the solenoid is probably bad - double check the battery wire to the ign switch first tho .

Sounds like a bad solenoid. Alwyas worth checking the solenoid has a good ground though. My Rally seems to get through a new solenoid every reason. Its going soon though.

Mean more money to dump into my project Cool

before you junk the solenoid, try to hit the small termanial with 12v. It should click, also, check if the back of it is grounded to the frame well.

I have more problems with the key switch then the solenoid. Just a thought...

I'll have to look at it. I acuatlly still have the old solenoid from it too. There's a good chance it is the key switch though. Its on the fender, not a great place for somethign sensitive to water!

I just had the 28 year old ign switch go on my 82 dynamark while i was working on it the other day - it popped the barrel fuse and kept heating up the wires- it looked like it needed to be replaced anyway ( key part was all worn wide open) so i happened to have a switch lying around - swapped em and it fired right up . I had to make a new holder for a new type auto fuse tho - had to 'upgrade' it a bit.....

Thats one thing Ive never done when wiring a tractor, is put fuses in. Im not sure where they are needed for a start. Think maybe dangerous toys, you could make a basic, but fused, wiring diagram in one of the Tech sections?

i use a basic wiring diagram for a murray actually - usually its either 5 or 6 pin ign switches. The fuse did its job actually , to keep the wiring from damage ( it got hot when i bypassed it) - on the 97 mastercut i goofed up the wiring as well- why it kept blowing fuses ( hooked a pos and neg together- d'oh! ). The fuse goes in a separate wire to feed the ign switch direct from the battery .

Ill post the pic of the wiring ( have no way to scan or make a pic on the puter).
