yep it was pretty nasty in there.

the cool thing is i have a complete spare trans so i have alot of spare parts.

today i got all the nasty betonite grease out and cleaned up everything.
i also drilled and tapped a drain and a fill plug for the oil.

i cleaned the diff real well because im trying to figure out how im going to lock it. im not sure about fozzy yet.











i cleaned up the bearings and regreased them.

ill lock it tommorow i just have to figure out how.

If I were you I'd replace that reverse chain. After seeing what was in there, I wouldn't think it would have much life left.

Its a good idea haha but thats pretty much just a temporary trans. I have another one that im going to rebuild properly. Do you know what size chain that is? Im going to order some.

i had quite a bit of fun with this thing lately. but i broke it !!  

the axle snapped. the axle was the type with the flat spots and i also ground a keyway in it. add the bolt hole to that and you realise that theres not much left of axle.




since in at my grandparents house till next week i had to come up with a temporary fix. i cut the sheared off bit of he shaft off and i welded a bolt to the end of that, so right now thats whats holding my wheel on.


im geting a sraight axle from princess auto next week to doc lock my trans

yep its a good reason but i do have to drive 2 and a half hours to go get the axle. the closest princess auto is 240km away. itll take a day to go get the axle but its worth it.

so this tractor is getting an 18hp opposed twin !! finally found one for cheap enought (30$), it wil be ungoverned, ill have to relocate the fuel tank and maybe find a bigger one. With that engine i might endup breaking the 801 again but i have spares lol.

i was thinking of putting an 8inch on the new engine, the trans has a 6 inch. i want some more speed and now with the new engine ill have more than enought power.

also i have brand new knobbies , i got them with a small 70cc chinese quad, im gonna put them on the front, they will probably be way better than the crappy smooth tires i have right now. they look to be 16 inch im not sure tho.

does anyone know how many amps the stock charging system produces on a twin ?

Don't quote me on this, I'm not 100% sure but its at least 3 amp and at the most 6 amp(?) But like I said, I'm not 100 percent.

Some put out AC volts, so be cautious. Does it have a "Diode" on the charging system wire? If so you should be good with DC AMPS.

i know some have the ac lighting circuit, i just want to know how much the dc side can put out. my old twin would put out 6 amps, im just not sure about this one. i may put an alternator on this machine too. i just dont know where to mount because i dont want it too low.

finally got some time to work on the yard man. i got all the parts for the doc locker togheter, i got a bullgear from my spare trans and assembled most of the parts.

here it is.





i also mounted a carb to the new opposed twin. it from a 16hp briggs intek. this carb is just to see if it runs, if the carb performs good ill keep it but if not ill have to find another one.



l]

oh i also realized that the new twin has pressure lube. i just dont have the dipstick tube ill have to find something to take its place.

Hm, I wonder where you got the idea for using that carb from?

I doubt a dipstick tube is that expensive, its only a piece of plastic and metal. How is the doc locker gonna work like that? Gonna weld in the pins to the carrier with a slot cut out for em in the hub?

i know it shoudnt be expensive but i cant find where to get one. and ill just weld the pin to the hub and cut the excess, this way i cant still remove my axle if i need to.
