I'm pretty sure you pipe tap the fill plug hole for 1/4-18 NPT

There is no true fill hole, only the neutral safety switch hole. It's already 1/8" NPT so you can screw whatever fitting into it you want, if you trim a bit off the bottom of them to clear the shift fan.

Well didn't end up getting a fitting so made my own by using a tapered air fitting and heating it up and poking it in the middle of the plastic screw in cap and then doused in in water to seal it up . Then ran a line from it to on the side of the console with a pleated fuel filter under a loop that should act as a trap if I ever get any water near it. Had a spring line protector so put that on the part closest to the belt and moving parts .1993 Craftsman LT4000 heavy mud build. - Page 11 20180535

Looks good. I like the spring idea.

Nice job, should work great!
I think it needs some taller, thinner front tires.

Thanks! Yeah these fronts have got to go, but I need to completely rebuild the front end to accommodate suspension. Really liking the mono link setup as it looks sturdier and less linkages and joints to mess with, plus more steering

Maybe just cut the Murray apart and use those parts.

A 1-link setup would be awesome on this rig! Be nice if you could find some nice some coils to use so you could have some good travel.

Yup. Will have to use smaller tires so I don't jack up the front end and whack off my hood whenever I flex it .

I like the filter under the dash.  Is the vent line taped to your shifter?  It's looks awfully close to the belt too but sometimes these pictures distort distance quite a bit.

The tube is loosely zip tied to the shifter, bit it has the protective cage that prevents rubbing through the rubber hose, and the belt is about an inch from the tube that is also covered in protective covering.

Drove it to mow at the neighbors tonight and looked down to see my left rear tire wobbling back and forth like a bobble head . Somehow my lugs were not tightened down and had been loosening up over the drives it has had. Borrowed a ratchet and tightened then back up and good as new. Headlights are quite a nice feature when driving back at night. Front tires are out of balance and have flat spots so it goes up and down when driving fast.

Brought back the Murray from the woods with this beast. Rows a trailer very well but does bog down a bit in 5th at idle lol. Swapped the front tires back to the skinny ones and it really improved the steering and hopefully improves how this thing handles in mud. Also made that stance more equal or better looking anyway.1993 Craftsman LT4000 heavy mud build. - Page 11 20180548

Yeah it definitely looks nicer with those fronts on there. Are they a bit taller than the rear tires?

Ah, I see. Thought it looked like it in the second picture, haha. Still pretty cool looking though!

The plan is to have larger tires on the back eventually . Maybe still itp mudlites but 25" instead of 22"

So I plan on getting some more aggressive tires to put on the new 12 inch rims I have for this mower. 25×8×12 is the size I think I am going to go with. Probably going to use itpud lite xls as they are cheap and have good lugs with that nice trademark tread pattern.

Hehe. Man these are going to look killer on this thing. Also went mudding earlier and got pretty stuck once my tires dug down and bottomed out the tranny on the mud. Went in water up to the bottom slat on the grill, had a blast tho, and these new tires will really improve the performance of it I hope. Should get them in the mail next week and get them mounted up for a test drive.1993 Craftsman LT4000 heavy mud build. - Page 11 Img_1512

Yup, can't wait to get them ! The mud lites on it right now are going on the gt3000 for better traction and a slightly pulley swap so I have another machine for a friend to drive or another one to pull out the other mower when it gets stuck (hopefully the executioners will prevent getting stuck again so easily. )
