I like the idea of stuffing a V-twin in here since you're not having so much luck with the old flat head.

i hate this kohler so bad, for now on a avoid kohlers unless there free or on something i really want. them useing 70% metric stuff has really made it hard to and expensive to work on, i dont have metric tools, and i have to go to the expensive stuff at tractor supply if i need most new bolts and nuts. normally its no biggy to loose a nut becase i have something laying around the same size. METRIC. im starting to think this kraper was made in china, it would explain all the plastic on it.

any ways im rendering a video now of building my exhaust system and im quite happy with out well this turnd out and how LOUD this tractor is. its insane how loud this is. it seems like twice as loud as dinky.

I mean, not loosing all the hardware from an engine when you disassemble it would probably make it easier. lol!

Also you'd probably be hard pressed to find an engine that wasn't made somewhere outside North America. Even if it says "Made In USA" right on it, it usually means the parts were made somewhere like China or what have you and it was just assembled in the US.

not loosing parts is easier said than done, once in a while your going to drop a nut, and the odds of finding it in the yard are slim.

My dad does a lot of work on the grass out at his farm.  He just goes for the magnetic pickup tool when he drops a nut or bolt.  I recommend you invest in one.  It might save your tail one day.

I wonder how many nuts and bolts you'll find with it in your yard? lol!

For aluminum you need a TIG welder. But you can use it for stainless too. Probably a good investment if you can find a way to make a little money with it too

for that price i could buy as car (googled and saw 2000$ my current welder was under 100$ shipped, and i did not even buy it.)
also i got a problem, i dont got any one avalible to help me get the ford home. i need some one to drive dinky while i attempt to hold the ford together and steer it. only friend i can get ahold of is stuck at home in a different town with a un-registerd car and its crazy cop weekend.

Man what a shame  about the Ford.  Could luck getting it back home.  Maybe you can cobble together a wheel lift or tow dolly to tow it home with Dinky.

i dont own a dolly, and we got big problems, what ever makes the steering wheel stay tied to that gear snaped off, so i have no steering, i tried drakking up the hill with dinky, when i got to the top the rope snaped and it went flying down and hit another tree. its stuck there, it might take me months to get it home, unless i cold find a way to temporary keep the wheel straight, or steer it, or keep the front wheels off the ground. i also snapped the grill in half to.

i once wrecked dinky in to my firends truck hard enough to put holes in his rusty bumper. nothing broke, i wish my friend had that truck still. when i get in to work tomrrow im going to try and beg my boss in to helping me out, witch will be a nightmare becase his truck is somthing like 16" lift.

run rachet straps to the steering arms then to the opposite side of the frame, one for each steering arm and that should lock out your steering

kinda wish i cold find another ford 100 to get parts from. although most are probably in better shape than this one.

Man what a shame about the body work.  Is there anyway you can rig something up or save what you have?

im asking arround trying to find some one who can weld aluminum and will do it for cheep. i dont want to drill holes and brace because they way i drive it will probably get play ever time. if worse came to worse i could probboly use angle iron and make my own dash bord under the aluminum one and use a crap tone of bolts to hold it all together. but thats a last ditch effort.

have you tried the aluminum brazing rod from harbor frieght? it actually works pretty good once you get the hang of it, but it is really hard to get used to using, you cant melt the rod onto the work, you have to get the work hot enough to melt the rod.
