About 8" on the lift. I didn't wanna go super high but basically I went high enuff so I could turn the front tires and just went with that.. it was a sketchy ride but hopefully i can get all the bugs and half as things worked out. With those tires on it I've got 9 1/2" clearance from bottom of trans axle to ground. and right about 15" in the front. I have no idea what the rims are from, a ATV but no clue what kind. 27x9.75-12 in the front and 27x12-10 in the rear. Tri-claw (back) and bi-claw (front)by mud machine I believe. Says 5psi inflation...

Well.... Frigged that up I did. Anyone noticed that I won't have no steering clearance..yep.. oh and it needs to go 1/2" to the right to center the grill.. yep.. and it seems to be about 3/8" angled.. yep.. looks sweet tho lol!! Well work to be done. Gonna cut 4" outta center and the mount bracket then move mount bracket over 1/2" and hopefully get that dang angle outta it!!

Yea!?! Well bumper part is done and way gooder results! Very Happy tomorrow I do bracket and make upper supports and prolly gonna add a extra support across it to help the cut/weld areas.. then run to scrap yard and get some tubing for front axle support and maybe even get the steering fixed tomorrow. Still thinking a different kinda hood scoop with a butterfly flapper dapper would be sweet idk. Lots of work yet just mounting the bumper and steering. Let me know what ya think. Definitely seeing gloss black rims,front bumper and frame from floor boards down. Leaving the body as is.. yeah??

Love the look and the bumper.

Well got the brackets all done and fitted it. Still no steering yet, however just moving the wheels it looks like I'll have a good turn and it won't rub. I think I got the steering figure out today but need some parts and 20 degree outside did sound like a good time. Tomorrow spouse to be 40-50 degree so I'll get the parts off one of the other parts mowers around and hopefully finish that. But I kinda jump around when building lol ill be looking for parts and see something that might work in another part of the build and away I go lol Any rate got some tube steel for supports and the original brake mechanism still works so was looking at that a bit. Hopefully will have pics tomorrow.

Well not so bad. Engine mounted. No wires,gas or cables nor no pulley yet. Steering is better but still not 100% satisfied. Perhaps a little more welding. Have front axle supports in. Added some tow hooks, not sure if I like them yet. None the less it's coming along.let me know what ya think!! I

The tow hooks look cool like that, but the only thing is any chain of rope will slip off when they're like that. I had them like that on the MTD a while ago and they didn't work too good haha

Lol yea if chain stays on, why not. Idk still on the fence about them. I think when it's gloss black they will look better, maybe put them on the bottom too. The big rectangle part the winch cable, I plan on covering with a piece of aluminum diamond plate. Should look cool idk.

Well spent most of the day playing with pulleys and what not. Would have been way easier to spend the $20 and get a new belt but heck it's funner to make things work lol no headache at any rate engine in, pulleys on, belt in and yea. Rigged up a make shift gas tank so I could run it and make sure things are good. Well.... Not so lol. The belt popped off, easy fix just need some belt keepers. The engine runs, runs good really. Can't wait to hear a custom exhaust on it. However the original linkage for the stiff wire throttle control did not work in my favor with my foot control. So now gotta move that to the other side and we are gonna use the governor level lol. But the solenoid for the carb seems to be broke. I mean it works with power, but it doesn't stop the fuel and there is definitely a little much fuel getting in there. Perhaps my make shift gas tank is too high and so it's pouring in ther maybe a carb clean etc etc. Idk we will test more tomorrow. However I get it to run and belt on and steering... happy happy happy. Also got the steering fix and the wheels now turn with the steering wheel in the right direction lol. Not 100% if it will all hold up with that huge 20hp on there and all but I'll run it till something gives way. I'll show some pics tomorrow. Also looking for a way to change the air filter set up so any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yea, was gonna clean carb today but woke up sick so not gonna make it to the shop today, I still don't understand how the mower runs if the carb solenoid wasn't open... Idk definitely gonna get familiar with this carb. It's walbro witch is a good thing I believe. Who knows maybe someone already shaved it down so don't work no more. I know it moves, but something is definitely not right. A good cleaning is to come as soon as I can over this cold lol
