We also went to 14.5 briggs on a couple of tractors, that is one powerful motor. It was competive with my 16-18hp opposed twin, sometimes faster. They tend to eat sparkplugs, change them first if it's not running right. And they blow oil at high rpms.

No its still an open diff i thought about locking it but i didnt want to loose any of my turning radius i go into alot of tight spaces. And the trans axle will prally not last much longer its been jumping in and out of reverse, it might just be a shift key idk yet .Its alot tougher than my friends thought they said it would be dead in a month that was over 2 years ago lol.

awesome. Its always fun proving people wrong on things like that.

id say, search for a cheap or free trans an lock the one you've got when checking that reverse. If it turns out its not what you want no biggy you've got another. Wink

No I dont have any new pics at the momount I dont even have any gas so I can drive it. And I dont have a youtube channel you see I live way out in the country so I have satilite internet and I would go way over my bandwith using posting vids . I hope to git to work on it and drive it soon.

Things i plan to do.

Build a new exhaust
Brake upgrade
Maybe make a new bumper something stronger
Try to make a limited slip differential

I have done partial body lift I lifted the hood 2 inches im unsure if im going to do the fenders.

And thanks for the comment I thought this thread was dead LOL.

Please use any ideas you like . I dont plan to change the look of it just make it stronger I can bend it up and down by hand . Right know all it does is look good and hold lights, its difficult to make a strong bumper without a welder . And I look forward to seeing your toro.
