You going with a single belt or try to do multibelt? If single, that will be a lot of belt to sag. Maybe a lot of belt keepers. Smile

Yeah two belts with a jackshaft or double idler connecting them in the middle seems like the way to go.

I am not 100% but I am pretty sure I am just going to weld a tab where the current shifter is and use another one further up, which will have some kind of push pull action. I might put the shifter under the seat or somewhere else that doesn't hang outa mile like the stock..

Yeah I had a problem with belt sag and belt flapping on my Westwood, solved it by putting an idler along the belt, which keeps the belt tensioned in the middle. How are you modding the rims?

I just watched @Camdg2010youtube videos on his homemade gators almost identical to this using craftsman frames.  He used a FF idea and used the deck height lever for a slap shifter.  The linkage looked really simple to fabricate.

I just did the ol' cut the center out of a 8" rim and weld it inside the 12" rim.

Ill have to check that out, I have a hydro axle so I think it will be easier... I did rip out my deck lever so I could move all the wiring under the gas tank.. The kohler engines have more wires/relays and such... I still want to use the factory ignition switch with it, and I will have the battery under the seat or something.

weird my kohler only has a kill wire, charge wire, and ground.  Pretty simple my rectifier is mounted on the motor and I cut the needle off the evil soleniod valve on the carburetor.

oooOOO no did some work on the wiring, and mounted the rear tires!! front tires are just rollers for now... Got to do some more frame stiffening has a bit of flex to it, but i need some tube on it anyway to mount the seat etc.....

anyway as you can see I got some 12" rims from a scotts tractor and just mounted up the 25's!

So you found 12" rims for 3/4" keyed shaft after all? nice.

Do you have any design ideas for the bed?

Yeah I would put the pivot point about where that axle is to make it easy to dump manually with a full load.
