I cant believe it is. I thought the carb would have crapped up or the gas would have gone bad but it runs just as good as when I parked it. Major luck.

New plans are:

820 Swap
-Lock
-Oil Lube
16x8-7 Carlisle Trail Wolf tires
Wire spaghetti
Frame reinforcement
Front bumper?
Headlights?
Taillights?
Opposed Twin swap?

If you swap in the Oppy and don't want your V-Twin exhaust, you can send it to me.  Twisted Evil

So while I am working on the Rv2, I am kind of refinishing this. A lot of stuff is worn or not working right, so I figured I could work on this when I have the time and hopefully finish both in time to go upstate.

Anyways, remember that stupid LED toggle that never worked? Well I ordered a replacement: an LED. This will allow me to still be able to see when the fuel solenoid is activated, while using a normal toggle. Not sure where itll go, but I can decide that after I swap the dash out.

Revisiting this turd.

As youre all aware, I entered into this years build-off in hopes of building its successor. Well I bit off a bit too much and it had problems since day 1. SO, RV2 will be donating its body to upgrading this bad boy.

Gathering the family.

It was doing that BS mist stuff thats wet enough to be rain but not rain thing today so everything was wet. Pulled it in to the garage so I could start doing stuff.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 1016462_998879310138406_1546647530994091710_n

Got the trans all put back together again, with the new seals. They fit much tighter.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 10485300_998879366805067_2720496709037014580_n

Got some stuff ill probably not use. Bearing bore is oversized. Got some 5/8 round stock, sleeve bushings are for the steering shaft.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 10698464_998879406805063_3821260300712586838_n

Gas lines, electrical, and all panels are off. Gonna get new electrical and fuel lines.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 10665920_998879423471728_2596579112698678877_n

Old "repair". Was oversized, and ended up being wleded on crooked. Bushings fit TIGHT. Should be a perfect weld.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 10410859_998879443471726_2586621596487504407_n

The arm on the deck lever should work great for the brake.

Craftsman Rally Mower Project - Page 6 1622803_998879466805057_3020520451714460544_n

Sandblasted and painted the pulley and shift arm so it doesnt rust to hell.

Ride vidya:



Works great! I did notice today, 2 days after my ride, there is still gear lube leakage. I dont know but it may have water contamination. Not nearly as bad as the old seals though. I also ate through a fuel line, so im thinking of running steel since its more static than rubber.



Checklist for the next ride:

Brake actuator arm needs to be fastened better, the nut vibrated off.

Need to add my 12v socket.

Headlights are on the way.

Need a rack. Trailer is too inconvenient.

Clutch stop. Clutch pulley hits drive pulley when full clutch.

Need to look at throttle. Cable needs tightened or something but I know I can get some more throttle out of it.

--

Also looking at doing a new exhaust (or modifying the existing), and doing a snorkel. I like the sound of the straight pipe, but I need a muffler. Maybe a selective exhaust like TheRainbowBoxer has. Probably not.

Truly- there's nothing more horribly catastrophic than having one or more of your nuts vibrate off.

Looks good though!

exhaust- find cheap muffler, gut it. quiet, yet rumbly. maybe leave ONE baffle in.
no offence, but that trailer truly is a terrible idea for trail romps and mud. in mud, it will just sink and be dead weight. a rack will suit much better

I was thinking something like this: http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/muffler-ford-mfg-fo-14 . Im planning on redoing the exhaust, but keeping this one for just in case. Probably do a stack to go with the snorkel.

Ah, you have the same problem that I do. I hate how my tires sit in under the fenders like that. Especially with my custom front axle that is wider than stock. Front tires stick wayy out compared to the rears.

Thinking about it now, I haven't touched my tractor since like february when I drove it from the shop to my trailer.

They dont stick out much further if at all than the rears.

Yeah. I meant my front tires though. Mine looks goofy and handles weird how it sits now.
