I see how you notch the rear fenders and mount them directly to the channel frame but how is the seat mounted to the fenders? Does it just flap and not have the rear springs anymore? is the rear even held down?

We ran new steel across the top of frame, flat to the top edge, under the fender. One at the front has the hinge for the seat bolted to it. the other has the seat springs bolted to it. The seat can flip forward, which we do when it's raining and tractors are out, to keep seats dry.

Thank you Stretch!

You mean this one?

That was helpdul in the way that I need it to be helpful.

I've already bypassed the gov on one, and hooked up my own foot throttle. I just like to see how people have done a variety of different hookups. I did mine without knowing anyone else had done them. Now I am curious about all the different ways, and the different affects, etc.

I really like that foot throttle setup and the drilled nuts. I may have to steal that idea!

I think I remember you guys saying that your bumpers fit together nicely right? Like one is just a tad higher that the other for pushing purposes and stuff right?  Could you get measurements of those so I could do that too on my rally?  Then if I ever do make it to Haspin and my battery dies then I can be bump-started with ease by one of your tractors.

Stretch, after studying your reversed clutch pics, I was just wondering if you had any underside pics with the engine and trans installed so I can see the final routing. I see you switch the V for a flat on the clutch arm, but there was a flat next to the V on the original setup, do you ditch the second idler pulley and just use the flat clutch one only then??? Thanks in advance.

I can answer that one. We are running only one pulley clutches, no idlers. The Craftsman tractors we started with had only single pulley clutches stock.
