Okay, warmed up a bit today, got the throttle hooked up and finished the wiring. Everything works great!!! Super happy, gonna take it somewhere today, gonna try to film it. Carb does leak, IDK why, need to tear into it to find out, but...that's not gonna stop me! Need to speed test it, top speed is like 25-27ish. Crazy fast for something that high up, feels like I'm going to roll it, so I usually go about 12-15, and I'm happy with that!

Nice man! Where's the carb leaking from? The bowl?

Yeah. Been leaking since I took the solenoid off and cut the tip off. The bowl didn't come off so the gasket is fine. The solenoid is tightened all the way.

There should have been a little O-ring or something on the solenoid where it threads in. Did it by chance get misplaced or anything?

That O ring is supposed to be a flat ring, not a round profile one, but a round one might do for a while. Definitely get some video!

Keep an eye on that if you used a round o-ring, it may back back out.  But we all LOVE video!!!!

Okay. So I found out at last minute the dog ate the GoPro Knockoff Micro SD Card...buying a new one today. Didn't matter, I was only going like half a mile up the road to the neighbor's house. In that time, I had a fun issue. In the past, I took the set screw out of the trans pulley and put a regular bolt in instead because I can't stand Allen wrenches. Anyway, it kept coming loose, and I had to stop about every 100 feet to tighten it. Managed to get it worked out before I left.

I also had a few other issues, fixed them too. Should be completely ready for a romp, and I will film it.

Yalp, should be really cool! I'm in love with those mud lites. The first thing my neighbor said when I drove up was, "Man, those are BIG tires!" LOL

That looks pretty awesome man!  I have that same model craftsman, but mine is still a mower.

Wow, you even mod your mower, lol!

Not exactly the same tractor, footboards are different, mine doesn't have a cup holder, but pretty much the same.  I mowed with it once upon a time, felt like the deck was about to fall off for some reason.

LOL, guess mine was the upgraded model.  I don't have the back tires on there anymore, or the 3pt.  I needed those tires to mow the yard where we were living for traction.  There was some steep slopes.  Now I have those rears on my daughter's ride.  :-)

LOL, IDK, yours is probably just a different year.  How did you get a 3 point? Did it come with it or what?
