Looks like fun machines. You've got the exact same wood stove as I do. Time for a foot throttle so you can control your drifts!  Wink Cool

Why wait?!! When I was running a 6hp B&S quantum motor with zero balls, I hooked up a foot throttle. It made driving it SO much better, I could give that stupid little motor the abuse it deserved haha, You will never go back!  Laughing cheers

because i dont want to put anymore money or time into that motor and i would have to make a whole new throttle for it to hook up.

Progress, I love it! Looks like and old skool hot rod.  Laughing 

I don't know how many RPM's those 16's can handle, but I'm always inclined to eliminate the governor. It usually makes the foot throttle a little more user friendly too.

That motor doesn't sound like it's working too hard at all. So much power! I bet you could double your primary belt ratio and still have a slow enough 1st gear to do technical stuff.

Great tractor build! Keep us posted!

Actually yeah its not getting enough rpms but thats only cause the pedal wont go all the way down and pull the throttle back fully, i have it adjusted a little bit better now but i have a lot more to do to it, hopefully i will get a video posted on it soon, ive been really buisy lately...
