Instead of just butting the piece of metal flat against the end of the spindle, Make a pencil tip like cut on the end and then but it and weld. This allows more penetration. Hope that helps.

Yeah. Thanks. Had to do an unexpected oil change last night as I forgot to shut the fuel off, filed the cylinder and crankcase up with fuel. No Luckily nothing is messed up. about 3/4 of the tank got siphoned into the engine. Unbolted the intake manifold and gas gushed out of the cylinder. I then took the spark plug out and blew the rest out using a battery pack to crank. It needed an oil change anyway. Right now, it's a MESS! I went mud bogging yesterday in a newly cleared spot that had raw dirt exposed to about 5" of rain. Talk about a big mess. The tractor didn't do to good with the unlocked rear and worn tread. Talk about slingin mud. Laughing Still was fun. I'll post some pics later today.

OK pics of the aftermath. Talk about muddy. Laughing Got the oil changed and engines running fine. BIG EDIT!!! I just forgot to turn the fuel off again. So I ran out there and there is a dang fuel mess again and a little fuel in the cylinder! What in the world is going on with this thing? Mad I caught it just in time I think. I don't think the gas got into the oil yet. Took the spark plug off and blew the gas out.

Yeah, the other tire actually has more tread than the other. Odd, since they both from the same set. Yes, the engine is similar to yours, but it has a little more muscle.(17hp) Yes, paid $4 for that valve and it's a life saver. Took the fuel bowl of this morning and there is some rust flacks in there. Shocked Thanks to that dumb shutoff solenoid. Mad

Got it fixed and back together and running. No leaks. cheers Now if I can fix the starting problem. Mad Odd thing happened to me today on a romp in the woods. The snap ring and the key on the tanny flew off. Suspect The pulley stayed on and spun on the shaft. First thought was, "Oh shucks. There goes my tranny." Half expecting to see a grenaded tranny, I look. Nothing broken. Found out that the snap ring and key somehow flew off. Weird.

Putting a belt on with the engine running, in the middle of the woods, with a shot battery, isn't the easiest thing on earth to do. Laughing Anyway, How it don't happen again. Been having fun with the tractor lately, racing my bro on his scooter. Very Happy I can get drifting on loose gravel. Smile Can't wait till the snow comes.

I don't know. Might be more trouble than it's worth. An UPDATE with pics to follow. I finally my bumper, brush guard, and rear rack made. Took me a while to figure out what design I wanted. A little messing around later and I have a bumper and brush guard beefy enough to stand on, pull on, and lift up. It also has slots to mount off road lights. As for the rack, It took a while to come up with something I liked. I still like Arild's better. The rack's mostly finished. Just have to finish mounting it.

OK, Y'all have waited long enough. Here is current progress. I'll add some lights and mesh to the guard later. Now If I can just find some bigger front tires, fix the wiring, and Figure out how to get it started. Rolling Eyes The list never ends.
