Ok back to try again this year all healed up from the broken wrist i suffered last years build off. I will be starting with a old murray not sure the year but i saved it from the scrap yard.

Going to make it a nice clean rather simple off road build. As you can see i started the stripping and painting of parts I will be replacing the trans axle with a locked one i have laying around as the one on it feels broken. Will be making a bumper doing lighting and pulley swap to give it some speed this came with a opposed engine but i will be going with a vtwin if i can find one reasonable.

Welcome to the build-off.  Boy that rig looks like one of mine!

We may be watching a little bit to be sure the 50% rule is followed.

Mine with that hood was an 85.  I have the GT, yours looks to be the LT.  I thought the serno's were between the seat and shifter, but I do not see that on yours.

Made a little progress. Spent a couple hours stripping the paint off the rear fender as well as the foot board. Welded up the rear 5" pulley i will do 6" in the front its what I ran in my last mower and liked it. Took that trans axle out and was going to swap it with one i already had welded but its different than my others and to my surprize actually has bearings so i will clean it up and weld it up.

Well I got a engine for the build 22hp briggs v twin. Was told ran when parked but thats what they all say. Lol started takiling it apart for clean up akd to make it look pretty and also put a new carb on it. Turned it over and it puked water out the exhaust. So I pulled the head and im going to give it a good clean..

Small update.put some skateboard grip tape down on the foot boards. Also saved one of the hood decals and im going to look around and try to get them reprinted. I have a gasket set on the way for the twin so going to go ahead and pull the other head to make sure its nothing like the other one. Set Also has valve seals so more reason to.

Don't worry about the rust inside the engine. Believe it or not, makes the parts harder. The old timers who build marine engines call that seasoning. They actually go and find engines completely rusted inside and out, remachine everything and end up with an engine that will never blow a hole in the side of the block. Best and cheapest way to clean the rust is Coca cola. Soak the part, spray it on the parts, let it sit for a half hour, then rinse off with water.
