How in the hell is this thing the most active topic on the forum. It's not even a cool build.

Anyways i cut out a spot in the clutch mount and now there's a lot more travel.

Took her out for a short ride. She still runs fat. I mean, there's still a completely unnecessary amount of power, but it just doesn't run quite right...

Or maybe it is running right? Seems fine, now... Took her for a good romp down a creek bed the other day and she did wonderfully, no issues. Almost ripped the steering wheel off guiding her under a tree once lol.

Rode Mutt over to a friends today after school, put up a few hundred bales, had a relaxing ride home with the sweet gurgle of the oppy and the wind in my hair. She's running great.

i hate long trips on a ratio like that, ok for a mile or less, but when your going like 7mi orso one way even my 9"7" aint enough and i tend to keep my RPM's higher than i shold half the time. i really wish i had a high and low range, be what i got now for trials then something were i can hold 40mph all the time for the road. realistically i have to drive more like 20mph.

I was doing a good 25(the speed limit on that road lol) the whole trip. She goes fast for a 1:1 ratio. Big tires and ungoverned engine helps a lot.

That is pretty fast for a 1:1. Bigger tires and higher RPM makes a lot of difference cuz I get about 15 with around a 1.2:1 with 18" rears and a governed 11hp flatty.

Had some fun today. Stuck her on some wood






Dumped her on top of me and broke the rack in a spot. Tipped her back over and she started right back up lol. Started running kind of funny again. Might just be out of gas though

Haha, nice. Actually seems like it's been a while since you rolled the ol' girl. lol!

Glad everything's all good, she's really taking the abuse in stride!

Where'd yabget that blue Kevlar belt? Online? I've been to all the auto, farm, and parts stores within an hourbor more of me and never seen one. Been on Amazon and found some but never the right length. The rubber belts seem to last pretty long for me, but I have completely snapped new ones in two from clutch bombs uphill with only a 14hp engine. Wonder if the running fat thing is just the engein itself, I had the one that was doing that but swapped the same carb and left the same idle and everything on it and put it on a 20hp and it runs super clean and never sputters or puffs smoke of any kind.

TSC is where I get all my belts.

It won't run rich if I get a carb that I can actually tune lol

Really? Huh all I've found there is rubber or the brown belts for bush hogs, guess I will look harder.

I've had good luck with the untuneable ones, just takes tons of cleaning over and over again.

This thing still runs and drives with no issues, well at least for the few times I've had it out recently- I mostly use Budgie for little around the yard stuff now.

I was just putting Mutt in a different building but got sidetracked and went on a hour long romp lol.




Really like how she looks from above


So I discovered that the intake adapter I made fits snugly in this extra pool hose I have. Snorkel intake take II maybe?
