You COULD, if 3rd is all thats damaged, take the gears, grind all the teeth off both, and slide all the gears down and place it where 5/6th gear would be. So it would go 1-2-4-5-6-3, but 3 being a spacer.

Yeah I thought about doing that, but 3rd gear and 6th gear are the ones I use most. 3rd just makes a nice trail cruising gear, ya know?

AYYY EVERYBODY! I know its been awhile, but I'm back. A couple weeks ago I was down in Kentucky and I picked up a Murray Widebody LT that donated its MST-206 to the CQ, as well as an idler, seat foam, and seat cover. Whats left I'm giving to my buddy TheGreenHornet. I'm in the process of finding a transaxle for it so he can make something of it sooner rather than later. You can check out his build thread for plans and specs.

Anyway, the CQ is back alive and runs decent. Carb needs gone through from sitting and the sump gasket pours oil all over the frame as bad as the old 15 horse briggs on Doc's MULE (anyone remember that??). So i figured if the engine has to come out and get torn down...might as well take it all the way. It'll FINALLY be getting the governor delete, OHV cam, and maybe a little porting. Also, shes getting painted. most of the hood panels are done, still have the fenders, center column, frame, and wheels to go.

Oh also, while I was in Kentucky I welded up an exhaust brace and a couple cracks in the frame. I got pics of everything and will be posting them from a laptop as soon as I can get my hands on one. Videos will be up soon as well. I've been waiting until after paint to do a walk around video of this thing and it will be coming soon.

Glad to back everyone!

Here is a quick pic of the exhaust brace I made down in Kentucky when I picked up the widebody


just made it out of a piece of galvanized garage door track mount (yes I ground off the zinc coating before I started welding). I know I kind of booger welded it, but I'm still working on the settings on my welder lol. Besides, nobody will see it under the hood.

I might clean it up a bit before I heat wrap it. Right now It gets pretty hot under the hood from all the heat that radiates from the exhaust. Some things booger welded bug me, but this hasn't really lol not sure why

True, plus it's the second thing I welded...like ever. First thing I welded was the hood mounts. Then made the exhaust. My welder is only a 90 amp flux core too so really I cant expect a whole lot

Hey fellers. Been dragging my feet on paint but it is coming along. Only the hood is off for painting at the moment so it still drives fine. Took it for a little ride today. Nothing crazy, but a nice relaxing joyride lol

Whole thing is about 70 ish acres. But the little bit of mud that collects isn't very challenging. Everything is too hard packed

Mud comes and goes, at least you have some good riding areas!

Spit a little flames after some yard work with the CQ today. I know it burns oil, an engine rebuild is after paint. Then I'm thinking bumpers and a gopro mount this winter.

Plans are starting to form for a Kentucky romp sometime this winter too, so I'll have her tuned up by then methinks

Ya ought to get some pigs, they make great mud holes and put lots of pot holes in the ground. Believe me, I know. We have absolutely no mud here in Texas, but pigs work miracles towards mud holes.

Hey guys, brought the CQ to the new house and did some neighborhood exploring. Stopped for gas too. Had to run a red light because the light turned yellow right before I was at the line and I was in 6th...no breaks...SENT IT!! hahahahaha

My buddy rode in the green wagon behind, and I ran into a couple other football buddies at the pumps. We all had a good laugh!



And here is a still frame from the "Through the fire and flames" video:
