Well this weekend I'm hoping to install a brake setup on the ol' MTD. I took the caliper off when I was mocking up the transaxle and I never put it back on, haha. But I think I should probably reinstall the caliper and fabricate a brake control of some sort. I'm thinking maybe a spring loaded handle that you push forward to engage and then release. I would also like it to lock so I have a parking brake. I have a few ideas of what I want it to look like, but we'll see what actually happens hahaha. Stay tuned!

The honda handbrake Doc had is an awesome idea. You have a mower junkyard near you right? Maybe try to find one of those...

I think a foot brake would be pretty cool if you could find somewhere good to mount it.

Yeah maybe. I'll probably try and fab one up myself first though.

Yeah true. But I always sorta prefered a hand brake on my tractors. Like the one on the rat rod.

Weellllll... I didn't end up doing brakes yet like I said I would. Hahaha, I have the pieces I want to build it, but I got a wee bit distracted with something else;


Decided to build a double pulley clutch, plans change I guess hahaha! Hopefully more tomorrow!

Thanks mighty!

Well I got my clutch all mounted up and working good, but my belt kept falling off of the rear pulley whenever I went over a dip in the ground. I figured the frame was flexing real bad at the rear causing the belt to pop off.
So...

















I can drive over anything and there's virtually no flex like there used to be. My belt also doesn't pop off or anything anymore, so I'm very happy! I probably shouldve re-enforced the back end sooner... but whatever hahaha! Let me know what you think!
