I have a thing for the way old wheel horses look so I'm shooting for the out come of this build to be something like that but with my own twist. This will be built for trail and pulling stuff around on my property.

Rear tires right now do not match but both are 25-10x12

I will be building the frame from 1"×2" steel then over laying the back half of the murrays floor pan.

Although I have had little luck with Tecumseh, its all I got for now so I will disassemble clean and add new gaskets and seals Its a 9hp.

I'm still undecided on the hood and grill I'm leaning to making the hood out of a steel drum barrel.

Cool idea of putting a big beefy transmission on a light weight frame . Should be really heavy duty! Good luck!.

I'm very interested to see how you will go about achieving a wheel horse look.

Good luck with your build man! You mentioned using a barrel, may end up looking like a steam locomotive!

Thanks everyone! I will be building a frame for it. This Murray chassis flexed a ton was even cracking from the flex. The idea here is to make a frame out of 1"× 2" tube then mount the dash and upper part of the murrays frame to that. I belive I will be narrowing and taking some of the height off those parts as well.

Your right on the locomotive part might have to change that plan up now.lol

I have an idea for this build. To safely stay within the frame rules you could weld up a sub-frame like you plan on doing and set the pan frame on top of it. It would be like dropping a body onto a chassis. It might things like motor mounting, floorboards, and dash a little easier to do.

Just called the steel shop up they will have my steel this Friday. Till then I got the engine painted up just waiting for gaskets and seals to arive. I used caliper paint kinda a strange red color. In the pic with all the parts it not that bright its more of the color with just the block.

In the last picture in your post, what's that barbed fitting on the block in between the valve cover and the oil drain plug used for?

That's kinda what I though too. Looks like you could get a pulse from there.

You would get a pulse signal from that fitting. Used for a diaphragm fuel pump.

What prancstaman said. Dad's old Tec had that and was attached to a fuel pump.

Come to think of it I replaced a blown head gasket in a B&S last summer that had a crankcase vent hooked up to a diaphragm pump. It’s the same principle.

Picked up the steel Friday. I got 10' of 11gauge 1"×2" tube and also picked up a 6"×13" 1/8 plate.

Today i started on the trans to frame mount. I will be mounting the frame to the front side of the trans like some wheel horses are. I also like this because it keeps the C.G lower.

Marked the holes to drill.

Budget build murray [2018 Build-Off Entry] 20180303_131932_1

Cut and drilled the mounting plate.

Welded the best I could with my flux core. The trigger is going out so gotta fix that soon

There is going to be a Gusset added to the side of this mount for more strength.

+1 on the nice weld.  Looks like you prepped well.  That's what I always heard.  Smile  Looks good.

EDIT: I just realized the clean removal of the pulley from the hub.  Sweet!
