So I tinkered a little bit on that 85 Murray GT.  Right now I will start a thread on it in the Utility thread.  I am leaning towards a Utility Build possibly for this tractor.  I'll need to come up with a project codename as well then come back and update the title.



Seeing if this thing will fire up!!!



Looks good!

Utility seems like a good fit for this rig I think. In that case I expect some heavy duty steering and a beefy home-built front axle with steering knuckles! lol!

Any ideas as far as tires for it? Or is that stuff all still in the works?

It's an open canvas.  

I will probably put ags on the back of this one.  I have a sleeve hitch for it.  I'll leave this transaxle unlocked.  Beyond that, I will probably take notes etc.  Maybe build some stuff for it?  We will see.

Unlocked is great for working tractors.  They don't tear up the lawn that way.

I've talked with some other members about this project.  I wasn't feeling motivated and was going to scrap it and just use it as parts for Kal.  Well, I have had many nights to sleep on it and had the need today for a utility tractor again for some yard use that wasn't "locked" in the rear.  My old utility tractor became the Craftsman Hotrod.  

So, as time and $$ presents itself, I have decided to go ahead and build the tractor.  Things I plan:

* Clean and Paint
* Go through and decarbon engine
* Change Transaxle oil
* New tires
* Replace the rag joint with something else?
* I have the sleeve hitch for the tractor, reinstall it.
  +  I have impliments that can be used with it.  
* Build a front bumper
* Maybe create a mount for it to share the the front blade

Now to name it I guess...

Edit:
* Change hood to an old craftsman one that I had on it. It will need some mods to work. I'll put this one back on Li'l Red.

I like that hood a lot.  You could put some attractive cut outs in it for the oppy heads if you have to.

I will definitely have to cut out the hood for the oppy.  I have some ideas that I could rivot to the sides where I cut it out.  It should help with the structural integrity. Then again it may not need it. We will see when I cross that hurdle.
