the scrap yard charges 40$ a tractor(pretty good) and the motor does not run but the tranny works. The motor has potential to run. all in you piese and good comression

$40 was a bargain! That thing is pretty rare. Was this the one you were gonna mod? Glad you didnt.

Hard to tell if that was the original color - definitly worth restoring. I bet all painted up and those chrome hubcaps would make it look sharp!

Wow... more paint then metal! Cool rig! I guess i'm the only one here who would tell you to mod the crap out of it! Twisted Evil Maybe it's just me... But I think it would look baddass on some big ass tires! Plus you could put all your stuff in the back... It's like it was made for off-roading!

But do what YOU want to, it's your tractor!

Sounds like the paint on my 99 weedeater tractor ( call it a craftsman ) - PO slapped so much paint on there it wasnt funny - had to be at LEAST 6 layers of different colors - i hand sanded it all to smooth the paint somewhat n used .99 cent paint - for cheep paint its holding up real well actually - better then the $5 cans i bot for my 86 GT II ( which sometime will get a proper repaint) . I was going to fix the deep dents on the weedeater- but im like " screw it- im using it to mow with"- so painted over the dents.


So y dont regret it in the future- make mods that arent permenent and can go back to normal. Me- i still would like to make my own custom bed for one of my dynamarks or other tractors - similar in style - some year when im out of things to do.....

As much as I hate to say it, it would be awesome to mod, although it would be a shame. I agree with dangeroustoys, if you mod it, dont do anything extreme. It's not gonna hurt it with a tranny mod, bigger tyres and different paint. Maybe a brush gurad you could bolt to the frame. That kinda thing. Cant wait to see more though!

yah there nice eh? well havta take em offand get all the dents out of them. i looked at them and they seem to be able to fit on any stock mower tires.

for a motor, not too sure yet but nothing to fancy and expencive. just somthing to get it going. Im actally looking at a 21 hp Vtwin overhead valve for torque(my machine). Its a huge thing!

the only problem with those twin cylinder engines is that they suck gas up like no other

I cant vouch for v twins on how much gas they use ( they should run leaner - not always a good thing) - having 6 opposed twins , mine seem to use a normal amount - nothing excessive - even that one i had on the mod murray didnt use a whole lot of gas .

Id rather have more power then economy - its there if you need it- revving the heck out of a small motor will basically use more gas then a twin . Best bet trail riding is to haul a trailer with extra stuff (extra parts and including a gas can- throw a cooler in there as well) .

Only one of my oppsed twins work. I feel it runs rich, although not noticably. Uses alto of gas though. Nothing to compare with.
The v-twins shouldnt use too much, the OHV motors are effiecent, and if you get a ~20hp one I should imagine the extra gas (idk how much extra) it would use over a single would be worth the extra power and torque. And they sound awesome!

'TORQUE' would be nice with a v twin monster. I'd like one for my mudder, my big MTd (to be recovoery type thing) will be okay with an opposed, as it wont be taking too far from home.

cant wait to see what engine you get

A good example of power- my murray with a 14.5 OHV briggs WOT ( and i had it WOT and in 6th )wasnt near as fast as my murray with the 18.5 opposed on it at barely half throttle, had power to spare( 4th gear less then half throttle).

My 12.5 horse is a great motor and actually has alot of power. It also runs like new. But i love to have alota torque cause it always there if you need it. I really dont care about economy. Id probably put the 12.5 into the viking and buy a vtwin for TORQUE

The 2 singles we run get great fuel mileage. I've never come close to running out on a trip. The twin however, you could look down the intake while it was running and see the gas going in.... pale
