Your shift linkage will be awfully low....Are you going to build skid plates? What happened to the Teccy?

I do plan on doing some sort of protection for the shift linkage. With this machine I just have to wing it and figure it out 1 step at a time.

The Tecumseh is up for sale, it would not have enough power to move this tracta-cooler. This thing is pretty heavy and my top speed is only going to be 20MPH on flat terrain. I doubt I will ever try to get it to go that fast. The top of the cooler sits at 47".

Right now it has a oil leak I have to find. It's a small slow leak so I'm not the concerned with it yet. My goal is to get thing rolling under its own power and all the mechanics worked out with it. If I have the time and $ I might do some "light modifications" to it. I'm definitely ditching the stock carb and intake and exhaust. Not sure how much $ I really want to sink into a 12.5HP Briggs. If I have to crack open the engine to fix the leak I will take the governor out of it.

I am not sure yet. I haven't thought that far.

little update on the Tracta-Cooler. I haven't gotten much work done lately, but I did get some new toys in for her.

Maybe I should change the name to MEGA Tracta-Cooler?

I stole this one from Doc Sprocket and added to it a little bit

Coolness ain't free..... Cash, Ass, or Beer.

Ok guys wanted to give you a little update on the build. I have only been able to work on it a little here and their. My wife and I are expecting our second child in a few weeks. So I might have to take a break from the build for a bit until we get things to settle down with the new addition to the family. I just don't want to get disqualified from not updating the thread. A couple things I have been working on is making a clutch pedal, brake pedal, clutch assembly, running the connections for pedals, and new power plant for the tracta-cooler. Once I have all that completed I will make a video and do a write up.

Thank you for your patience with this build. I feel like I'm not as far as I should be, but we are only a few months into the build. At this point it is a rolling chassis and I started from complete scratch.
