I was not able to do the double nut on the tractor.  It would hit the lift lever shaft.  But that part is pretty stiff now.  The front pivot the tie rods connect to is the part that has some play.  I cannot washer that one to tighten.  There is a minor front axle play that I will tackle this weekend sometime.  I don't feel that it will have enough play to roll me now.  :-) Not much to do minus direct steer or new old stock of that part. Not sure if it has a removable bushing in there or not.

pretty lil tractor brother. Direct steer is great for low speeds, but tends to be twitchy at higher speeds on uneven terrain. for road use. use a larger yoke, for off road, smaller. Yoke size and spindle arm connection length determines turning radius and how much you feel irregularities in the terrain. Smaller for off road means less leverage for the tire to spin the steering wheel and break a finger. Less of a hazard for road means you can have a quicker turn radius, though this too can be hazardous if you get too silly with turning at speed.

Figured out the pull to the right when going down the road.  The lift to the front was causing the brake on the right front to grab causing the pull. I put it back to where it was.  Few updated Pix for the weekend.  Wrapping up on the project.  One more thing I would like to do to the build before calling it 100% complete.









Enjoy!

I now have in my possession the last part that I planned to purchase on this build. Once installed, I will call this build a wrap and change that progress in my Signature to 100%. Nothing spectacular on the part, just a light to be installed.

I'll put together a little gallery of pictures. I'll also put together a final video showing all the features and functions of the tractor.

Breaking news: 6 hours to the deadline and competitor Mightyraze has decided to completely rebuild his buidoff tractor due to a flaw in the paint on the underside of the footboard lol!

I love this thing Mighty! I prefer the front end lowered like that, it adds to the gasser look haha cheers

Thanks!  Took some pictures today.  I'll upload them in the next few days.  I have some more I want to take soon when it starts getting a little darker.

While filming some snip-its  I laid this burnout in the driveway.  LOL...

No fire... LOL thanks!  I took some pix last night but they turned out bad.  I was going to redo tonight but that did not work out for obvious reasons.

They caught the dudes, 2 of them about a mile from the house just after 1AM. I'm a bit tired today.


I'll see if I can get those pictures retaken. They are calling for thunderstorms tonight, Yee-haw,

Well, here are some pictures as promised.  I know it is early and if there is something that falls in my lap that "just has to go on" I'll do it and keep y'all updated!





































Hope you enjoyed it!  I am working on a video, but that is going to take a while.

I was going back through my build thread.  I'd say it came out close to my original vision?




personally, I know it is my build, I think it came out better. :-)
