Yeah it is shaping up, im gonna give the cover a nice orange paint job... looking for a 5" engine pulley seems I am having a hard time finding a 1" bore, 1/4" keyway pulley just yet.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/100s-of-V-Belt-Pulleys-5-5-1-2-6-6-1-2-Steel-Pulley-w-Weld-Hub-All-Bores/391494084120?hash=item5b26dda618Ⓜmw4C3LaZfVf3U9IOCF5TW9A

There you go.

I bought one welded. Weld job was okay but not the best. I've bought some not welded that I've TIG welded too. The one I welded for Ol Red's transaxle spins so true it's hard to test its turning!

They sell both the hubs and the pulleys at TSC. It's about $12 more to buy one welded from this guy, if I welded myself I'd buy one from TSC.

TSC is a gamble if they have them in stock or not.  I bought my pulleys from this ebay guy because a 5/8" belt fit it perfectly.  That wasn't the case for the pulleys I saw at TSC.  They were meant for a 1/2" wide belts which is a more common application.

Well I guess it's a regional thing, I've seen them both 1/2 and 5/8s.

My mother in law works and TSC so I am there allot, & they hardly stock anything...  The only thing I like to get at that store is nuts and bolts by the pound.

The ebay seller says that particular pulley will run a 5/8" or 1/2" belt.

I don't mean to be changing the subject, but they never have coastal hay in stock either.

Ooh looks nice and spiffy.  Painting the shrouds always makes the tractor look a whole lot better.

Looks good! I agree with W, painting the shroud always cleans up a build. Especially when it is a different color!

so motor in, motor out to finish fixing the tractor, I got a matching tire, had to do some work on the pulleys, I am waiting on my drive pulley, and finish painting the engine. First time it saw the light of day for a while...

That orange shroud looks good! Is the wheelbase stock? It looks quite long.

its just cause all the parts are off...

I had to take the motor back off because the pulley i want to run, requires unbolting the motor because there is not enough room to slide it on to the crankshaft with some of the brackets on the underside. With the motor loose I can get it on.

That thing does seem like it has a longer than normal wheelbase. The Snapper LT16s i like have a wheelbase a few inches longer than most typical lawn tractors. Axle to axle, they're longer than the wheelbase on my Mutt, which is slightly longer than stock.

Yeah those pulleys are really convenient because you can choose to get them welded and painted for the same money I think. It can save you some time on a build for sure.

starting to get the motor back together, honestly getting the bolts to put the shrouds back on has been a pain because they were all missing...
