Starting new build thread on my craftsman lt1000 mudder project. I got it as a frame for scrap and took the axle out of my old yard
Machine that was rusting to pieces and took an opposed twin that I also got for scrap and put it on there but I don't have a magneto so I decided today to put my extra 12.5 hp flathead on it.

Any ideas on how to put a 6 3/4 in pulley on the front, I know I have to take the belt holder off but my clutch will hit it.

So here's where the beast sits for tonight, made my battery box and got the pull start on and the electric start hooked up, all that is left is to put the belt on and get some fuel line, got it running on the first pull after sitting for about 4 months Very Happy
