after all that i deceided that this tractor is just to much tractor for a single, its heavy and geard up, i need torqe.
so i added my 18hp full pressure freebi oppy to it this time, but the motor ran HORRIBLE. turned out sheard keystock... so i welded er on.(are you surprised?)
there will be videos on this to come soon, i just have been having a solid moth of life stuff getting in the way of me taking care of internet things like face book, youtube, email, even keeping contact with family members.

with this motor im trying something new for a throttle setup and i got epoxy curing for this right now.
im going to try and adjust the gov so it will not pull the throttle at all when the motors at 0rpm and throttle is all the way down. because i need my ENG breaks.

I dont know if any one has tried something like this. but i think its gonna work beautifully. and if i have issuers i bet ile have them knocked out faster than a thing thats fast.

this throttle settup worked just as good in real life as it did in my head. i think i need to get the ford ran up like this next, i have only had a few test drives, but this is a game changer.
the way i have it adjusted below about 15% throttle the gov can not pull enough to make the RPMS go up, so i can still stall out and use my ENG breaks like ungovernd, and full throttle sounds alittle low, but the lever in the above 15% range maintains RPM's from neutral to in 3rd gear cruising.

from the pedal, you cant feel the slightest difference. and if the hand throttle is all the way down, it is just as touchy as my last setup, move the pedal a hair it reves a hair. pedal to the metal is wide open throttle. just like on my throttle setup with the 19hp.

now sadly dinky just got put out of commission same day. went dumpster diving with friend, main jet started acting like something clogged it, and he tried using the govern to test drive when we got it running agin, and he was right behind me, and tryied starting in 2nd gear.

he cluch dumped and could not make sharp enough turn, he slammed in to the mud trains rear right tire so hard that sparks were flying out from under dinky and it staleld.

what happend was the left front wheel hit so hard it crumpled the frame, and bent the left side of the front axle, the tie rod got smashed in to the pull start pully. on top of that, lost a head gasket on right cylinder. we never even made it to the gas station.

i can fix everything with what i have, its just gonna take some effort.

so chases machine has been getting alot of work done to it and its fining its own path in life.. this weekend it earned its name, as chase was carving DRIFTEY on the hood. because after welding the hell out of its diff it would blow gravel donuts until you could just see lights spinning. but if you cought traction it would roll hard. we have been working to fix that.

the most recent picture is after it roled, dinky's hood has been threw lots of flips and rolls as well. if you got a welder all is well.

I know, but welders don't weld plastic. I figured that last pic was before it rolled since it was still in good condition. Didn't expect that hood to survive a roll with any type force.

the only part of the hood thats plastic is the grill, witch is made of a strong flexible plastic. like me and my dad had a head on collison with dinky and the JD, dinkys hood did not look any worse, the JD hood had a big chunk break off the front.

dinky plastic front looks so bad from people wrecking it in to the mud train on the trails, more than 1 friend has done it more than once. and more than once that plastic grill gets cought in the tread of my 35's and i get hit in the back with the tractor because it gets picked up by the hood.

the weak point is were the rod it hinges on is welded to the flat metal front of the hood. its weak even with bracing because of tight space and harsh angles and thin metal.

Not to jack the thread, but I know it's only the grille. I always thought those (Those, as in that particular type hood) hoods were pretty strong. I know JD hoods and LT1000 hoods are absolutely trash too. I just thought since CQ was able to obliterate his, I assumed they weren't as strong as I thought... His musta been weather beaten or something...

so last trail ride dinky went on i had a wheel bearing blow out, then an idler bearing. since that happend i switched dinky to all seald bearing idlers. i aint drove dinky to crazy since i have done that, but it is QUIET, i can barely hear the difference when i put it in gear while in neutral.

i also need to get more nuts and bolts for belt guieds. when my idler failed the bet started twisting around and it blew 2 of my 3 font belt guide bolts and there welded on nuts right off the tractor.

Chaces Drifty has had a failer in its Footie!
was ilding in 6th gear then it came to a sudden stop and stalled, started it, tried to put it in 6th from idle, stalled agin, tried to put it in first from idle, there was a clunck and it drove without issue, stopped to inspect, oil was drizzling out near bull gear.

drive back to house, 1 more clunck on the way, no hesitation park it, its really running out the oil. could not see were the problem was, but lookd like the case blew out to the side of the bullgear.

theroy, part of a tooth chipped on the bull gear and got cought between the gear and the case and blew out the case. i think some cleaning and JB weld will have it tip top shape till the gear looses a whole tooth. but we will see if thats even the issue.
