Thanks. I don't think I will put one on. I'm just wondering what it would look like. I got the wiring done and all the dad blasted sensors out. I've now started on the gas pedal. I'm not having much luck with it. I'll try again tomorrow. hopefully I'll get it. I did pull a wheelie with it. Laughing By accident. Cool

my unlce built a custom mower and he got a rollcage from a mini midget that he could bolt on and bolt off but his went 50 mph and had a 250 dirt bike motor in it and his was completely custom made. the only stock part was the hood

I would like to, but I can't figure out how These caliper brakes work. I went to my grandpa's farm today to get some scrap metal. In his scrap metal pile, I got: several pieces of big heavy angle iron(perfect for my tractor bumpers), an old 4'x8' ATV trailer, a rolling golf cart chassis(piece of junk), and other various scrap metal parts. I'm going to work mostly on the go kart tomorrow. I did mess with it today and I'm having an issue. Once I get the engine going and start driving it, In about 5 minutes, every time, it shuts off. Mad I ditched all the sensors in the thing. However, I think I traced the problem down to what appears to be another sensor that is screwed on the bottom of the carburetor. If I unplug the connector from it, the engine shuts off. What the heck is this thing and how do I ditch it?

OK, that's not it than. I could unplug it and it would start to shut off, then I would plug it back in and the engine would kick back on. What else would cause this?

Alright guys! I got her going and now she'll stay going. It was the ABS solenoid that was the issue. Puled that sucker out, cut the end off, and now she'll stay runnin. Sometimes I'll get a big POW! when I shut the engine down. Smile Went trail ridin yesterday. I've given it a name.(Butch) Sure is fun. Notice my gas pedal setup. All I have to do is hook it up, fab up the bumpers, and swap the pulleys and I should be mostly done.

Looks cool - not being sky high, it should be more stable . Ive had a few OHV motors that the antifire solenoid screwed up in - snipped the end off and havent had trouble since .

Does it have an exhaust on it? Most times why it 'pops' is because of unburnt fuel - on my tractors I usually shut the gas valve off, then just let them idle till they stop on their own , it emptys out the carb of gas as well .

Thanks guys. Yeah, It now runs good. I'm working on the exhaust now. Still trying to figure out how I'm going to do it. scratch I've even gone trail riding in it. The front end needs some work. Still lots to do.

Man, Butch is becoming a mainstay on the farm and I'm still working on him. Used him to work on the fence today and to fetch some firewood yesterday. Got the exhaust finished. I'll post pics on how I did it later when I have more time. Now time to decide what tip to use. What's y'all opinion? Smile

The second one (third pic), I think would look better once its all welded up and ground smooth. I'd add a little more pipe coming out of the bend and increase the angle of the cut, maybe even put a little curve to it too. The frist setup dont look to bad either.

One ? is your hood going to be able to open with that setup?
Anyways your tractor is looking good.

All I have to do is unscrew the fittings to open the hood. I'll get some different fittings so it will be easier to open the hood. I'll make a new turn-out tip that has a better bend in it.

Yep, ATV tires look good on any mower. UPDATE. Got the front fenders on they just need to be painted to look good. I'm still not convinced they look good. Rolling Eyes

HAHA. Yeah it would. Butch, however, is an off road machine. Good, I'm glad they don't look too bad.

There is still plenty of "Lawn Mower" left. It just looks like a lawn mower with big fenders. Them big wheels will throw some mud I'm sure. I personally like them. A coat of paint will help though. What color should I paint him? I was going to do camouflage.

Got the gas pedal hooked up. bounce It works great. Wasn't sure how I would do it. I'll get pics soon. Next step is to see if I can somehow flip the engine pulley around and use the bigger size. Any ideas?
