I got a late 90s murray that I built and need some help with mods. Any ideas?  Photo_11


So far ive swapped the transaxle pulley to 3 inch, i did an engine swap from a 12 hp briggs to a 15hp sabre briggs, go kart rear a/t tires, paint job of course Very Happy , new starter, tinted headlights with purple neon underglow and police strobes all around, new turf savers up front but very small, and through some blue balls on the back Laughing. i wanna beef up my steering and some exhaust and a bumper eventually, but i would like some other unique ideas, ive got most of the basics, any ideas?

i have previously after painting and it did better but about a week ago the linkage from the steering box to the axle broke and i believe i fixed but since then it has had so much play but it had play before that though.

You could extend your shaft that your steering wheel goes on through the bottom of the frame then make a piece that goes on the spindle. To help look here if you didnt already.
