Used budgie yesterday to pick up some firewood outta the lawn to throw in a fire I've had going the past few days. Go out to the store today and now i have two flats instead of one. Wonderful. It took air long enough today to move a trailer around, so whatever. I'll patch it soon.

Hey look... something happened! It's only been what...3 months?

New exhaust system! It's not finished yet, I ran out of welding gas(d'oh!) but it's finished enough to use. Propane can muffler is similar in fashion to Doc's fire extinguisher ones. Sounds okay to me. Still retains a bit of bark but it's much better than a straight pipe.

Really liking the sound of this exhaust system. Not loud enough to be snappy but loud enough to maintain lots of that oppy grunt.

Finally put a screen on the flywheel today.

My dad somehow broke budgie's right spindle moving her around with pallet forks. It just snapped right in the bend. I stuck a block in to stop the axle from articulating and drove her to a spot in the barn that was out of the way. The 2300 is enough of a counterweight it seems. I'll weld it back together and do some general reinforcing soon.

Yeah, that kinda happened lol. It's just come together so nicely. Unlike anything else i have. The exhaust came out nice. I've been getting better at putting that stuff together.

Rolling her into the shop now.

Pic of broken spindle surface. Kind of a weird break.

Welded up the spindle and reinforced both with the mr.moo method, but with worse welding lol.

Didn't come out too bad. Hopefully they won't break again.

Took Budgie out for a rip today. She's lots of fun to drive, an absolute tank really. Lots of power and weight with the locked diff make this thing just about unstoppable.

Had a problem with the belt coming off a flat idler once in a while; I added a belt guide that will hopefully fix that issue.
