Very cool! That montgomery ward hood and grille looks really good on that frame, especially with the cube Craftsman fenders.

I actually have that tractor, but it had an 18.5hp Intek twin (which is now in a different tractor).

Take it on a speed run yet?

thanks guys i put ALOT!!! of work in it.

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) 19_bmp10[/img]
the hood and grill is off a WHITE tractor


the footrails are off of a cow pusher off my friends pickup

( that shifter in this pic i tryed and it worked but it was very sloppy and i couldnt get into 6th gear. )
i have a 5 1/2 inch engine drive pulley and a 3 inch rear end pulley
the drive pully is nicley centered but it isnt completly flat so it has a slight wobble
and i think im gonna try to put a bigger drive pulley like a 8 or 9. but then ill need to move the clutch because it almost hits the drive pulley

Looks to me to be the second cleanest build on this entire site...(Behind a lifted craftsman, that was already in condition.

I like the height it sits too, most of the guys on here have racers that would be to top heavy to have and speed behind them.
