Well it would be much more impressive with a regular vertical shaft transaxle in my opinion because keeping the belt on can be an issue. Plus you can have articulation with a transaxle.

That might not help if say the roof leaks.
Hah, well the roof doesn't leak.  Yeah, I might jack it up sometime if rot really becomes and issue, but it isn't right now and it's like 15 years old, so I don't see it rotting any time soon.

No he wasn't clear.  I wouldn't think he would honor that bet, but technically speaking, yeah you are right, you should win.

It is a rim, I need to get a really wide pulley somewhere. Was going to use them, but the wheels were like 2 1/2" wide, and made it look like a bicycle or something.

But hey I will make you a deal. Prove that you can on video make a trail riding machine with over 3 inches of suspension travel in the rear that does 25mph and hell I will pay for and ship you a shirt that says you are a Mud Mower Suspension God.

@biggasmowers
DWC claimed he had or could do it with a tranaxle setup AKA the stock style trans in a Craftsman of this type. Yes if you can do it with one and show it on video I will gladly drop ship you a shirt from my spread shirt account. I have already sent in prizes to add for the competition and plan to send in a shirt or 2. What's 20.00 more for the first person who lets their machine do the talking rather then their keyboard.

Ok done high jacking DWC's thread again tell he needs another belt install how to video Wink

Huh, that is very interesting that you would honor your bet.  Also, I do not mind people like Bigg or AK or CQ hijacking my thread, makes good conversation.

Threadjacking for a few posts is OK, but then I will get

[mod]The MOD HAMMER
[/mod]

out and put it on track.  Trust me when your thread gets 20-40 pages and you are looking for something specific, makes for a long read if the search fails you.  General chit-chat that is relevant to the topic I personally allow.

Lol mighty THOR , the topic I was dissussing had to do with this thread as it started in this thread and involved the build in this thread . I wasn't trying to change the threads content but was bringing up stuff from the first page . (I did tie in my machine tho , so that will stop , )

Okay back on Doubles  build now!

HAHA, the mod hammer. LOL, yeah I see your point.

BTW, I need a new tie rod for the front axle, and I'd like it to be adjustable.  Know where to buy one?

If you have a piece of shaft you can cut an external thread with it on a die or drill a hole and cut an internal thread with a tap. There's heim joints out there with internal and external threads.

I was thinking of taking some all thread and bending the ends and using some large nut to tighten it in the middle...am I dumb or is that actually a good idea?

Depends what size all thread. 3/8" won't hold up. Smallest I would use is 5/8".

I can bend a 2 foot long piece of 3/8" threadrod pretty easily. The stuff is only designed to have a decent tensile strength to hang stuff.

If you want to do something quick, dirty, weldless, and texas style. Take a piece of 3/4 inch black iron pipe, drill holes near the ends for 3/8 bolts. Don't tighten the bolts all the way because they will bind. Double nut the bolt so the nut doesn't fall off. Want to make it adjustable in length? Cut the piece of pipe on half, and thread the two make npt threads together in the middle with a coupler. This will give you some adjustability. You'll need to carefully measure the center to center distance for the 3/8 holes, but there you go, a strong, weldless, adjustable tie rod for under $5.

I've had good luck with 3/8, but then again, I was only doing like 8-10 inches, not more. I just got the rod and cut threads on the ends for either the heim or ball joint.
