What would cause this thing to run really fat, fire oddly, and just not run smoothly in general? It always starts super easy, on the first few turns, but it just doesn't run right. There's a missing O ring on a jet but I don't think that would cause a problem this severe. There's something weird going on with it.

Oh yeah and im working on a foot throttle. My friend gave me this cool one so I'm trying to use it.

Yeah, if a jet isn't right, it will run bad.  Heck, if my tractors with adjustable jets are off just a half turn they will start running bad.

It's that time
Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190632

Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190633

All welded. Not pretty but functional.
Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190634

While waiting for the diff to cool i turned an arbor so i could turn the rear pulley to go to a 6". Gonna be fast. I think the taper was about 3°, don't take that for certain though.
Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190635

No keyway but it fits snugly on the taper and I take pretty light cuts anyways so it's fine.
Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190636

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get her back together and i can find a belt that'll fit. This thing might end up as fast as mutt. That'll be scary.

Why not just switch the gears around and lock it that way? People do it and it holds up great, and you can undo it.

I've heard some stories about that not holding up so well with hard use. It works for some people, but for others the diff assembly breaks and blows a hole in the case.

I flipped the gears around in my wheel horse, works good but I'd much rather do it a different way if I had to do it again. I think it holds up good for me because the gears are fully incased unlike a sears but I can turn one axle and theres some play before the other turns with it which I dont like.

I could've swapped the gears but you guys all know I'd break that in a heartbeat. I'm never going back unlocked anyway. Better to turn it into a solid chunk of metal so I don't have to worry about it.

Oh yeah i broke off two bolts in the case and have yet to address that issue. Ffs

Wouldn't call it nice, it's functional though.

Cut the big pulley off, bored the little one to where it was cleaned off, turned the hub to a slip fit, peened it on there, and then welded it. Not bad on runout.

You know how many times i had to sharpen drill bits getting these things out? No threads left in the holes but theres room on the other side of the case for a nut.
Craftsman GT6K - Page 5 20190640

Transaxle is back together, just needs the case bolts torqued down and refilled. I'm putting the old oil back in lol.

If you've never changed the oil, I'd put brand new in it. Just sayin'....

If anything's gonna kill this thing it's the diff coming apart not the oil. It's probably the factory oil tbh. Didn't have water in it so there's nothing wrong with it

She's a roller again. Working on a clutch now

I know it won't kill it, but I really don't care how good the oil is, unless I just put new in it or it's still golden, I always change it. Not telling you how to build your stuff, just telling you how I do it.

You do lots of dumb things anyways

Took her for a top speed run. Runs nice when it's running outta gas. I have no idea why this thing runs this fat.


Drives really squirrelly, i really aughta find the tires I'm gonna stick with and start redesigning this front end.

I'm surprised I've been able to use as many stock parts as I have.

I actually happened to be in town and just guessed on the belt size I'd need, luckily I guessed right lol.
