Right now I only have sheet metal screws holding the hood on in the front.  I need to go ahead with an actual bolt for strength.  I am kind of on the fence about the fender flares.  I realize that I don't have as deep a fender pan as Doc did so I don't have the material to cut and bend up for attachment. That, and I think my fenders are wider?

Well, it appears that I have punctured my left front tire. It was flat when I got home today.

That sucks. Luckily for me I've removed small tires by hand so many times it's usually a pretty quick and easy process haha. Do you have tubes in your front tires mighty? If so maybe a crack in the tire pinched the tube.

Same here with tearing tires apart. This set does not have tubes. They will.

We've had 4.5 inches of rain in the past week. Went to the mud hole. Seen some mud and water, but nothing hard.

I am installing a new throttle cable on Red.  I have got started.  I was just going to fix it, but realized the cable was all frayed.  That appears to be the issue with my throttle.  I think I get get by with just plugging my front tire.

Did get a little hiking done today.  Not too much, but some.


Yes we have mountains in Oklahoma.  LOL

I also need to run a bolt to hold the old/new hood down a bit better. I have 4 sheet metal screws holding it on.

Got some little things that's been needing done completed today.  First off, if you were interested in how I did my exhaust pipe.  I haven't shown that before.


Got my tire plugged!  Good to go there!


I like to keep good bolts.  These are some saved from an engine in the past.  They will be good to use for this application.  They worked well!


Re-attached and looking good!  Very solid now.


Had to shut the door, Raining Hard! got 1.5in in 30 minutes.

Last thing I would like is to install is a brake disk or drum.  This transaxle brake no matter how I tweak it on this tractor is weak.  Other tractors I have I can get them to LOCK up.

Things I still have in work:

  • Finish foot throttle.  Having both, dash throttle and foot isn't working that well at this time.  COMPLETE!


  • Mount new tires to rims. (can be seen in walk around video below) **COMPLETE


  • Fix an oil leak in transaxle.  Appears COMPLETE!


  • Engine still needs some fine tuning (I think it is starving for fuel a bit *COMPLETE...Didn't have cut off all the way open


  • Build a bumper that I can mount my dad's old wench that I need to fix input post. ALMOST DONE.


  • Build a back basket? storage for tools, etc. Still in work.


  • Exhaust!!! COMPLETE!


Looking over my list.  I need to add


  • Brake Upgrade/fix


I have just started the Wench mount planning.  I have a plate to mount it to my bumper.  I cut up my old one plate for the Sasquatch build.  I fixed the old wench post that was broke off.  I wish it had the ability to unlock for spooling instead of the motor to unravel.

I have my eye on an ATV basket that isn't selling on craigslist.  Seeing if it comes down in price.

I have planned out my brakes, I just need to do it.  I think I will try separate the clutch from the brake and see what happens.  I think I can get this thing to work better.

Had the gas tank out again to do some more seam patching. I am not sure if I needed it, but I did it anyway. I think it may be good to go with a full tank.

Nothing worse than a leaking gas tank. I had that happen to the original tank in the MTD years ago, it was bad enough that I couldnt fix it tho haha.

There isn't any cracks that I know of in the tank. I do know the seam was starting to come apart I think due to dash twisting. I think down the line, I will make a tray that will bolt in on the original gas tank mounts and have a drop in tank. It seems to make the most sense. I'll run what I have till it finally breaks. Bad thing, if it were to leak, it would leak darn near the solenoid. That thing were to spark during a leak! Bye-Bye tractor.

Did some playing today with the welder.  I took off my bumper  and redid some of the welds on it, and finished others.

Here's is the little skid plate I had at first.  Sorriest weld I think I have ever done.



Here is the same joint that I went back over.



I went back over a couple other welds on it as well as added a couple others. Pretty solid now!
