Well I figure I might as well start a thread for off-road pics. Here's a few of my latest Rally project, I'll dig up some older photos of other mowers soon, and also have some fresh new action pics!!

These pics are of my buddy testing it out for his first time, the last pic is me. I know, no helmet.. Believe me, I don't even touch my racer without a helmet but this thing is barely faster than stock. From now on tho I wear helmet, just to be safe. This thing crawls over rocks, stumps, rock walls....Its so much fun!

Cool pics- i was impressed with my 80's agway - being stock, stock rear tires ( i put turf tires on the front in place of the original ribbed types)- 10HP, 3 speed - thing would move over branches and small trees with ease- would go thru water and most mud easily as well- only time i had a problem is when the mud was super thick- thing would barely dig in. Id planned on someday getting a couple AG tires for 8" rims- theyre like $45 each tho.

Im setting the agway aside for a future 4x4 GT6000 craftsman project- first i have a handful of others , like a 5HP honda powered MTD wizard 'go kart', 2 mod MTD's and eventually a super mod rat rod wheelhorse, and rebuilding a couple stockers as well.....

Here's a few old pics of some of my past machines.

This was the first mower I built, I was 16 I think. No idea what it was, all the labels were gone, but the engine was a white B$S 8 HP stamped '78. Had a 3 speed tranny in it, I put a 11 HP B&S in it after, went like hell about 65 kmh, I had chains for winter, steering stabilizers, was it ever fun and do I ever miss it. I ended up giving it away after it started to break down too much.

Off-roading pics new and old 311

Here's the second mower I built, an 87 Rally with an 8HP B&S that got swapped out quickly to a 12.5 HP Tecumseh OHV, which ran with a starter bolt thru the cylinder wall for a YEAR
! Never knew until I burnt the con-rod out of her. Opened it up and put a new con-rod and ran it for a while still till it finally threw it out the block. Then came a 10 HP B&S and finally an 11HP B&S and now she is retired. She had probably 5 trannys in it, even a total frame swap! I won trophies with it and my buddy also won trophies with it on a different frame!!

Me drifting on my small oval track before I had a clue how to drive lol

Off-roading pics new and old N901025330_1939952_1671

This is my third and current racer, an 87 Yardman that had my 10 P B&S originally, which went into the Rally, and a nice 12.5 B&S I/C Gold went into the Yardman, port/polished heavily, no governor and new piston/rings, bulletproof motor, have raced it many times and used it hard around the yard ALOT and still has power and runs smooth.

Off-roading pics new and old N901025330_1939956_2910

Here it is after a complete facelift and paint. It's no longer a Ferrari though, as the stickers faded terribly and I took them off. But it still is clean and works very well. Goes 50 kmh top speed.

Off-roading pics new and old 4251_200444595330_901025330_6987293_8231888_n

The powerhouse. 12.5 B&S I/C Gold. The motor is a 1991 out of a Craftsman LT II 4000 I believe.

Off-roading pics new and old 4191_199863005330_901025330_6973352_6161170_n

Some pics of mudding, NEVER taking this mower off-road again it's too hard on the light-duty gear. Reserved for racing only from now on lol.

Here's my Yardman and Tyler's 88 Craftsman we just built, with all our winnings!!!

My friend Jake years ago on his '74 Husky Pup lol that thing was an awesome rig had many good times with it!!!!

Off-roading pics new and old N901025330_1939953_2063

And finally, my lawnmower . Replaced my red Rally as mower. My FREE Craftsman (for actual lawn-mowing) All I had to do to get it was deliver and set up a new mower, he gave me his old one as pay!!!! It's a 2000 model year. All I had to do was swap the deck and front axle off my old Rally. Otherwise the machine is mint.
It's never been outside for longer than mowing, the seat isn't even cracked. It's got a 13.5 B&S I/C Gold Craftsman, runs perfect.

Alot of cool pics you have there- all that mudding takes me back to when i lived up in NY- we had a large swamp behind the house - not until a few years ago did i actually venture in there with the agway, when i first started collecting i
d run my tractors thru the mud in the ditch by the road - good times.

Your mower- the 2000 craftsman- looks exactally like my 99 weedeater- cept the rear fenders are a tad more rounded on yours.
Heres mine years ago about a week after getting it :
Off-roading pics new and old 22893910

I used .99 cent paint on the whole thing- im surprised how well its held up.

It had been an ugly purple faded to pink when i got it:
Off-roading pics new and old Elvis210

Its all finished and mows now.

Ive got a 5 HP 70 toro i originally mudded with- i would beat the snot out of that thing, it just kept running- i still have it- brot it south - im planning on redoing it to mow again.

I like that paint work you did on the wheels of the yardman- the silver ring and black centers- might just use that look on a couple mowers.

Here's a few new pics of me on the Rally. Found myself a sweet little playground in my woods, got an old stone wall and some junk to play around on.

Rock crawlin'

Got home after dark, got swamped in a hole for a good half hour. Not fun pushing and pulling that out, I was just as muddy as the mower.

Thats exactally why id wear crappy clothes and old work boots when i went out mudding - i knew i was gonna be all dirty and be almost knee deep in the mud by the days end.

Id just hose the clothes off at the end of the day, and leave em over the back porch railing for the next day....

Well I hope everyone likes donuts cuz.......

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL6yPrUoTxI

That was my buddy on my old Rally racer back in 2004, with the 12HP OHV Tecumseh in her, found some old videos so gotta post em up lol. That motor ran for 2 years with a starter bolt protruding into the cylinder, wearing a gouge in the bottom 1 inch of the piston almost through the skirt.... It finally seized the con-rod to the crank.... so I put a brand new con-rod in, polished the crank journal, and drove it for another 6 months, until it threw the con-rod through the block while running her wide open on a frozen lake. I say Teccys are junk, but....... That was a trooper!
