Well, my brother tore his Widebody down to frame today, only problem is, there's not much frame left. So, he gave me all the what would be scrap metal (frame, front end, clutch, column, seat, grille, and gas tank even though it's not metal (everything he gave me is cracked or broken in some way)). Anyway, he's getting a donor machine to give his Murray a new backbone since his old one is "unrepairable".


But now, I have a "complete" frame, and I got that old junk motor from the Craps-man, now all I need is a blown transaxle that still works, and bang, another tractor.

Why do I want a blown tranny you ask? Well, I have big plans for this one. When I finally have enough bad parts to make up 1 driving mower, I'm putting a ridiculous pulley swap on it, saving it for some big event, and Ima send it out in a blaze of glory and hopefully fire! And after the motor blows, I pull whatever good parts I can off, and then scrap it... Although I'll probably beat it some more with a good tranny in it and then swap in the blown one when the time comes...


No pics yet due to a dead camera battery, but I will certainly be posting some.

Wow..needs a bit of work. Free is free though. If you lived closer i’d Give you a frame. I have 3 wide bodies I got for 100 last winter. I mainly bought them for the motors which 2 we’re fixable.... 20hp tech and a 15.5hp Briggs. Then I found this forum and decided to play with them instead of scraping the mowers. Just be careful if you use that frame in any way. I would be leery using it even welded up good at high speeds

Actually, this machine will probably only see the road one more time before the scrap yard. That 17 horse briggs that's on it now has a severe rod knock. My plans are to do something like, a stupid crazy pulley swap, hope it holds together, and hopefully send it off of either a huge jump or cliff or something. I'll be sure to blow up 17 horse too, then I'll strip a few parts off it, and scrap the whole thing.


Although my brother is looking for a new frame for his. He's still got the motor, tranny, wheels, body, wiring, and red part of the hood.

Well, got a tranny! Problem: bent axle.... Wonder how long that FNR will last. Probably 'till it hits the ground after a jump. Too bad it's only gonna live 3 years in total.  lol!
