Did you end up using the a1 and a2 wires?  I think those might be AC leads for lights.

the A1 is for charging battery, A2 is for lighting system... no clue what the green goes to. anyways i drove it today, need to make a few changes to the rear rim setup. im 99 percent sure the rear rim on left side is crocked by like a 1/16.. you can just barely see that its not 100 percent straight. so my idea is to make the rears the same as front... so i can adjust the rear tracking. If i watch the tracks while its on stands, when i go forward with both tracks, the left side slowly walks to the inside, the right side seems to be good but still going to make it adjustable. in the pictures you can see what i mean. if however i put it in reverse, it walks to the outside,,, making me think the rear left rim is not straight. i think its turned to the outside just a hair... no big deal, i can fix it. trying to find how to upload videos.

Should work as long as you keep tension on the track and the wheels are the same diameter as the sprocket without the teeth(which your pic looks like it). Being on the ground, the teeth will ware down some but should be enough tooth engagement for them to work good.

Cool videos.

took it out again today after replacing bearing in rims, drove it around for a good half hr over all sorts of terrain and it did great. im having a little bit of problems with tracks sliding on rims, i knew i would. so i may have to make the setup like i show above. other than that its a head turner! 3 cars stopped infront of my house as i was driving across my lawn with it. everyone loves it! next to do, the blade... i want to make a small ripper/back drag blade so i can till and level my driveway...

yeah a rear ripper/grader blade would be put to good use on this thing.  It's exciting to see it move.  I like your design a lot that has bogie wheels on either side of an idler cog for tracking.

my fiances grandmothers boyfriend gave me his snow plow from his jd riding mower. seems to be the perfect width, only issue is the mounting setup which bolts onto existing holes in craftsman frame.
Because i have my tracks on it, it sits about 4 inches higher than a stock craftsman which puts the blade at an extreme angle. So to fix it for now i used some extra 1 1/4 square tubing and made drop mounts. i hate the lever that raise and lowers the blade, lots of slop in it so my idea is to use an electric atv plow up and down actuator. anyways heres pictures as of now.

Sweet! the paint even matches.

Can it go any higher or float higher?

unfortunately no it can go higher with the lever. however it will "float higher than what its at now" the lever is pretty trashed which i dont understand because this plow was used once... i plan on making a different setup for it.

So are you basically running an open diff and a brake on each axle to turn? I should have asked this earlier. Looks good with the plow. I want to make a skid too some time.
