Only thing I'm worried about with it is tearing a hole through the sheet metal with a sharp rock or something.

Man..maybe I need to chill with the testing things to the limits by putting them through the harshest conditions possible Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 1098998679 Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 2240318088 lol!

Hahaha, yeah maybe. But that would be rather out of character for you.

Yeah, that would be weird haha. Although the thought of not breaking stuff 24/7 is rather enticing.

Oh yeah, and for the little romp I did, the steering was really nice. No problems whatsoever.

Yeah, I went and bounced it off some tree stumps today and she handled it great.

When I was clutching once today she pulled the belt up under the V idler clutch pulley. Noticed while I was fixing that that the whole clutch arm was tilted so the frontwards idler is low and the rear is high. Think I'll file the holes out in the frame a bit and tilt the whole crossmember back to correct that. Should be an easy fix.

Also gonna clean up all my connections in the starter and battery ground circuits. I cleaned the battery terminals on Onion and she turned right over and started up with the old junk battery, I figure it'd be a good idea to do that on Mutt too.

Lol, I call it Onion because it is one. Piece of junk really.

We had a bad connection on our 720 Deere once. Thought it was the starter switch or the battery, but it turns out the clamps just needed a good cleaning. I should really have known better than to not check and clean the contacts more often.

Ended up not doing a cutout. Originally made this with the 3/4" NPT coupler on the end because the muffler isn't mine, it's dad's(was originally just gonna weld a muffler in when I did a cutout), but I kinda took some inspiration from the exhaust Doc did on Fugazi, except the whole muffler is removable. I can screw in the muffler whenever I wanna be sneaky lol. I might actually adapt a foot or so of 2-3/8" tubing I took from a gate so I can screw it in too, I bet that would really make the oppy sound nice.

All back together with the hood moved back to where it's suppose to be
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 28277210

This limb fell off the dead tree in the back yard in last night's almost-tornado, grabbed a chain and hooked up to it and pulled it in 4th gear all the way up the hill. I'm not saying she liked it, but she did it, and sounded damn good doing it haha
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 28467910

Executioners are not turf friendly. End of the limb was in the pond btw
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 28168010

Hooked up the $10 trailer and fished a bunch of sticks outta the pond, as well as picking up the rest of the ones that fell outta the tree. This stuff burns real nice, tree died a year or two ago and the wood is good and dry.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 28378410

When all the work was done, I took Mutt for a run around the property. She's pretty great, no problems!
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 20 28471710

So fellas, what major change should I do next? lol!

Thanks Mighty

Forgot to say, I did clean all the connections. Charged the battery too. She started up fine twice, and after that the battery was suddenly dead. I'm thinking I accidentally forgot to check that the key switch had returned to the On position and not let the starter run while she was running. Damn cheap switch, no solid detent. Might have to add an interlock to prevent that from happening. I'll check the charging system to make sure that it's functional too. I've had diodes let the smoke out a few times before, under load.

Brought a spare oppy carb to school today to measure off of, gonna make a hose adapter for a snorkel on a CNC lathe(with some manual mill work). Didn't get much done lol, it's a brand new Tormach slant bed, so I was still setting some stuff up.

Now if I ever get an 820 it will go in the LT4000 and the 930 will go in the Murray. Still dreaming though.

820s are really common here. I can tell you 2 places off the top of my head where I've seen them in town. I think there's one on facebook marketplace right now in a Murray GT i could pick up for $50 too. Guess I'm just really lucky lol.

I have no clue how to ship anything. Plus I dont have paypal or a bank account or whatever. I'm an in person kinda guy only, for now.

Found another can of gas today so I decided to not let it go to waste. Took her through a bunch of mud around the pastures and in the barn. Got pretty deep there but didnt get stuck. Front tires never pushed at all, just gotta love the 21s.

God tier parking and picture job lol

Belt has a tendency to jam itself under the V idler once in a while. Might need a new belt, i think this one flops around a good bit because it's stretched a lot, and catches under that pulley. This belt's actually over a year old now so it might be time for a new one anyways lol

Finally got a start on a go pro mount. Have all the pieces cut out, just gotta zap em together. Using a piece of 3/4" EMT for the main arm. Stripped the galvanize about 6" from both ends, hopefully I won't get zinc poisoning lol.
