Well, I gotta say, now is not the time to mess with 'er. I should have left it alone until I can completely focus on this project. I have to finish the Beater Murray, get a decent welder AND learn how to use it, school starts in 2 weeks, I've still got tractors from this mowing season to get fixed up and be rid of, the Scat Rat is coming with a new year and that's creeping up fast, I'm looking at ANOTHER project not even related to this stuff, And to top it all off, the MM needs to be finished ASAP.

So, as much as I hate to, I'm gonna have to put this one aside for now. At least until the build off is over.... I already miss it.

Well, to make a little space and to keep the pressure of building it off of me (and to see it again lol! ), I decided to piece 'er back together! It won't drive since it has no clutch and a cut front axle, but at least I can hear her run again! I did do some things I've been wanting to do since it was apart... Cut the unnecessary lip off the engine plate, and I opened up the space under the engine where the pulley goes a little more. Also cleaned up the wiring by deleting the safeties. Anyway, I expect to hear her run tonight!

Starting to look like something...

Nope, this is not the new stance.  Mountain Murray 2.0 - Page 4 2664539216

I'm going to revive this build as specifically a RALLY build. Not an offroad/rally build, a full on go fast through the woods and creeks like Grind Hard Plumbing Co rally build. I will be lowering the original stance a little bit... Don't wanna roll going around a corner really fast. I'd like a top speed of about 40MPH so I can give my cousins a run for their money on their ATV's. May do a different suspension setup on this one. The Mountain Murray will have this setup, but I doubt this one will.

Engine is on! No fuel lines so I couldn't run it long, but it runs! Haven't decided if I want to park it yet.

So, we were at the junkyard today trying to find an 820 bearing for my brother's machine, and he didn't have any, so, for $25, we picked up a Peerless 820 to take the bearing out of. Anyway, already pulled the bearing and sealed up my brother's tranny, and now we just need to get the rusted wheel off, piece it back together and throw it under the Murray. This tranny IS going to go in THIS machine. I just decided this week to get an 820 for it, and whataya know... It's already here...
