Awesome! I was doing some research and the ATV/UTV trail over here about 15 miles from the house was converted to Equestrian only 5 years ago. UGH!

Yeah it was fun for sure! I wanna go back during the day sometime though and bring my brother on the ol' Ford along with us. That'd be quite a show hahaha.

The video did look fun! MTD running a little rough? It is fun to go fast!

No she's still running great, backfires if you throttle down real fast with the short pipe obviously but it's not too bad. I could probably fix it by playing with the mixture but I'll probably leave it haha.

I totally blanked out the new pipe. That's what I am hearing is just the poppy in the engine through the mic. I wish I was playing in mud!

Oh hahaha, yeah that's probably what it was. Yesterday before the romp I did a bit of tinkering with my steering linkages and got it to turn a bit sharper than it did without being so stiff, which is nice.

Also I tried a different clutch spring and it seemed to help the slipping in higher gears but it still slips when I take off in 2nd or reverse. Might have to mess with it a little more to see what I can figure out.

You're running a stock engine pulley right? That's gonna slip no matter what you do. It's just so small

No, it's a slightly larger one welded to the original one. The clutch can be released pretty effortlessly from underneath the tractor so I think it's just a spring tension issue.

You should switch your pulleys to like 9" to 1". No belt slip, and good crawling speed. Truuuuuuuuust me.

I would imagine you're right, might have to try that.

NOT!!

Hahaha, actually the next thing I'm gonna do is make a bearing to support my steering shaft just under the dash. I'm just gonna use a pillow block most likely, shoud be a major upgrade from the crappy plastic bushing thing on the dash. Hopefully I'll start fabbing that up tomorrow!

Actually I took my fuel tank out and had a look, only to find out there's virtually no room to mount a pillow block in there. Gonna have to try and think about doing it a different way maybe haha. But I did use some "strategically placed" pieces of rebar to strenghten up my steering box mounting. I noticed it was torquing side to side when under a lot of stress, but there's virtually no movement at all now! Which is good. So I can say I got something done hahaha.
