I've seen this problem a lot.  I'd just weld the locker hub to the axle.

so my wheels wold not fit with a stock transaxle and my exhaust, so if i wanted to drive before i re-did the transaxle i had to improvise. so i took a spare hub and an old failed dock locker hub and drilled then welded a hole threw some stock front wheels.
not only could i move but it drifted super easy and i could not seem to roll it any more

10min lator one of my wheels looked like this, it has cracked side walls and i pushed it tor hard.

i used some scrap metal from a garage door and welded it to an 8" rim, tryied to make mud paddle tiers. it sucked, vibrations were destructive
and the video stabilization took me 2 hours of after affects CS6 (wold of been more like 45 if i knew how to use it)


i took it out on a camping trip this weekend and with how things went i have deiced to retire dinky for fun use until i complete some goals.
*Snorke*
*starter repair/repalce*
*pull start*
*fix hood*
*Rear Gas Tank*
*Wide Rear End (need axle shaft, bearings, and new hub machined, also need improved)*
*0 gauge on high current areas of electrical system(0gage because i have alot of 0 and 8 and i dont want to buy 4 witch is more ideal)*

once i get my camping trip video edded i will post link here.

its going to be a month or so, i cant start buying parts till 2 weeks from now. in the mean time this is only driving to tractor supply.

i can still do half the work i need done with not much more than i have now.

Yeah that steel wheel didn't turn out so good, but looked like a fun experiment.

some day i will do it agin, but with bigger wheels, and i would weld some kind of disk or hell small bike rims with tiers on outside of it, so the paddles only touch ground when the disk sink in to somthing. it wold be usable on more terrain and still awesome in the mud.

im going to hold on to that though and come back to it in 10 years maby. unless i some how run across several more machines to play with in the near future

so im hoping this weekend to to my rear end gas tank, witch means its time to re do the electrical for high current low resistance loss. for thoes of you who dont know im in to electrical engineering as a hobby and im also really in to high powered clean sounding audio.
so i have had my fair share of trying to maximize current current flow to increase efficiency and reduces voltage drops.

this is my sub amp for my main pc, and to size in to prospective, the smaller wires is 8 gauge, stock for Briggs starters
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 2 VeMrAdN
and i got quite alot of this stuff laying around for wiring up amps.
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 2 Yde0ajV

to make this happen i ordered some terminals with shrink wrap and starter relay for a large v8 motor
this will be able to handle far more current and should provide much less resistance than the stock starting system.
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 2 38mHSq4

this is to compare stock to what i got laying arround
"Dinky" (Crafstman 917.254650) - Page 2 KLsG9s0

so what do you guys think so far? am i going to far? i could just put in the electrical system built to start that motor, but if im going to do that i figured might as well do the job more than right. im going to do it better than most cars.

Yeah you're over doing it.  That original battery cable looks just fine.

im defiantly having voltage drop issues. this think barley cranked over before my starter self destructed. but its electrical system was for a single and it has the battery quite far from the starter. more cable=more resistance.

if i jump the thing, jumping from the battery terminals never works, i tend to put my jumper pack on ground and straight to positive on starter and turn key on pack and tractor at same time.

now if you get thew the video, today i finasly got dinky to run agin (guess i still had water to flush out of in take) and i took it for a quick vice grip holding a wheel on spin. well, i did not like how it feels to ride, i feel like im a good 4" up higher and i wold roll this thing if i breathed wrong. so im leaving this up to comunity,

A: old fenders and gas tank and re redo electrical wide dinky
B: new+old fenders dully dinky?
