Before you cut. Is it possible to raise the hood?

I would say no, but anything is possible. I started wet sanding the hood down, I am gonna pull the stickers and do something like what your avatar pic looks like. That is unless I come up with another v-twin, I was really looking hard for a vanguard v-twin, but not too many around.

Holy crap so I think i finally have something I think I am satisfied with running, I saw this poopy rallye tractor for sale, so I drove out to get it, was missing a wheel, fender was bashed into the tire and it was infested w/bees (I am allergic). Anyway I winched it into the truck & exterminated the bees....pulled the motor & scrapped the rest.

So the muffler is just what I need to run the engine in this orientation & I am happy with the result....
I want to try and clean up the muffler cause it looks like poop, maybe there is a hi temp paint or something I can use....

Yes there is high temp paint you can use. They actually make paint for headers so I doubt that muffler can heat up enough to burn it off.

Any hood trimming needed to fit that thing?

So I am going to use these tires for now, some 23" x 8.5 Ag's I had around, I actually painted them black with "tire paint" because they are pretty old & I havent been able to find any used....

I also built another motor stand, and after changing the plugs my motor is running great, carb is clean & I am ready to drop it in and see what else goes wrong....

I havent picked the engine pulley yet... it is a 3sp, for around my property a slow speed for driving in the woods is most desirable, but for fun I wouldnt mind to make it fast for the hell of it. I did do a big pulley on my simplicity but I took it off because it was too fast all the time & you would go flying as soon as you let the clutch up. So probably just keep it mild or I wont be able to use it.

Engine should make allot of power considering it was a 8hp before...

I ordered a wheel horse shifter boot for another tractor, and I think it will work ok, its too big, but I think I can put a hose clamp around it and make it work.....have to put the shifter back in...mrshaft696's The Real Horse [2019 Build-Off Entry]  - Page 4 Img_3412

got my rims painted up, and finally cut the stupid hood. Spent the morning cleaning and degreasing the motor.... I cant wait to get it bolted down....

the strange thing about this machine is that I have to bolt the engine down off center because the steering shaft is dead center. So on a small 8hp engine it is not that big of deal. With a 18hp you can kind of notice it a bit more.....

Looks good.  Off center gives you a little more room for the muffler.  Smile

Motor looks good in there. Need to add a red 1 in front of the red 8, to be legit.

Maybe some 8 inch AG's in the front spaced out to the same as the rears. I think would match up quit nicely.

yeah I have some 8" rims ready, I just need to paint them white, I do like the rib tires but they tend to slide in the mud around here.


Getting ready to bolt my engine down, but I am having a problem with where the front bolts are landing, will post pics later.

so a little change of plans......I kind of decided to do a little more than what I was planning, and I am going to repaint the tractor.  I dont know why but my wife kind of pushed me to do it.... the wheels are painted new, im gonna repaint the hood, and the seat pan....

It also turned out where the motor bolts up is right on the edge of the cast iron, so I am going to weld to plates with studs to be able to bolt down my motor.... I will have to drill out the holes on the base of the motor...

I am not sure how many other parts I am going to repaint...I will see what it looks like....
