It's kinda weird the tires looks like different sizes from the rear view.

Anyway, awesome.  Those are the tires to have on an ATLT!  Motor sounded pretty good too.

No way you got them for under $100

I bet it does like my phone and has a bit of "fish eye" to it.  I've love a pair of those tires on my suburban.

My execs have always looked different sizes in pictures, at least I think they have. Probably a fish eye thing.

dinky looks like the one tire is wider to in the picture, its becase i was using my cheepo cannon powershot s95 point in shoot (i got for free broken) instead of my usual Nikon L105 DSLR (i got for 25$ broken on ebay).

That's a pretty interesting action shot there.  Did you hit a rock or bump going fast that caused that right rear tire to come up in the air like that?

im on page 2 of ol red and in that video with ferless front, did not seem like you had a 8hp motor there. i personaly hate my 12hp briggs. hit sputters and spits black smoke on a sudden trottle increse and it has no power for use in the mud, my drive pully is only 6" and i want somthing more like 9" but the motor cant keep up with the 6" in the mud.

it will in 1st and second, but i dont like shifting down. i tend to run threw trials full trottle max gear if i can.

so aver this last weekend the fords stock breaks almost completly quit working, i think i wore the pads out, can i get replacements? (uses a metal band with a pad that clamps around a metal wheel) if not know a good way to rig something up in there that wold last a while? considring filling the warn down spot on the pad with JB weld so i can let that be my sand away friction.

Mighty on here suggested in my Ol red thread that you can buy brake friction material from McMaster Carr and epoxy it on the original metal band.  I ended up using a cheap shop in down that can re line clutch and brake parts.

That's not me riding with Fearless Front.  That's Mower Outlaw and his Wheel Horse.  It's actually a 6.5hp predator.

oh, well that enplanes why i dont see the horse shoe belt gard. if he is getting all that performance on a 6.5hp motor then made my 12hp aint running right. i know for mud bogging even my 19hp feels week, i have to shift down on dinky to, but dinky has a WAY faster top speed. you know what the compression is supposed to be like on a cast iron 12hp briggs? because i know there aint much just from the fact i can turn the motor completely over by grabbing the cup loosely.

If you run a compression test and it's somewhere around 100 psi you should be in good shape, but it sounds like it's nowhere near that.

100 seems high, i know my 16hp got 25psi, my oppys both give 75psi.

also i can tell you that cast iron motor is going in the trash before it gets its rings replaced. i did that once and i never want to cut my finger tips up that bad again. getting the piston back in the cylinder is a nightmare.

Yeah I would think 90-100 PSI would actually be a good healthy number. Also if you have the proper tools like a piston ring compressor, as CQ mentioned, re-installing a piston is usually a super straight forward procedure.
