Hey guys, This is the beginning of what will soon be a woods machine! So i guess I should probably start out with my plan.. The plan was..
-Buy the tractor off my buddy..
-Fix motor and flat tire..
-Begin mods..
-Beat the hell out of it Very Happy
(I do want to add.. that as soon as school comes back in, progress will increase because I'll have full access to a pro fab shop..)

So here is how I got her, the motor was running on 1 cylinder and the right rear tire was off the bead.. Sad

So then, I fixed the tire using carb cleaner, a lighter and a crappy bicycle pump.. Its all i have here at my uncles, then I got bored and seen a sick looking opposed in blue on youtube, but it was missing a sticker on one side so i had to top that and keep both stickers..

Heres an up close of the motor.. still running on one cylinder.. Sad
Death Machine Offroad Build! 20130803_200714_zpsf46e1db8
So.. running on one cylinder.. it barely sparked. so I made a homemade spark plug wire out of 10g wire and insulated it well.. still didn't run.. So i knew it had to be something internal.. and before I knew it was blowing air out of the intake on the carb.. So i thought maybe that valve had been stuck.. Well it was definitely stuck..

There a bolt in it!!!
So i pulled the intake manifold off and popped it out really quick! Bam.. torqued head to spec, and she fired right up.. No internal damage done luckily to the valve..


It started to get late so i had to shut her down.. So i started designing a dashboard.. It eventually gonna get tricked out with gauges and toggle switches (under glow!!) Also, push button ignition may be getting a transport if this fails.. So anyhow I found an old pioneer radio and started fitment!

Sweet tires anyone in WA that needs 9" ATV tires? note I could buy them later this year and ship them to someone out of state but not over 1000 miles away from WA too much $$$ will be used in shipping.

My friend has the same mower, kinda. It has a 16.5 oppy on it with a hydro, and hes to cheap to do anything with it.

i had idea but i would have to design it for mtd axles only to work.. that way all of u mtd haters will suffer forever!!!! lol
Seriously tho.. I was thinking that.. my uncle can probably do it for me.. you would have to stop, and creep and i mean creep, until it slides into the spiders.. it would be like a 5th spider gear but this one doesnt turn.. and it just slides in and locks on the lever... also would need to be spring loaded

Havent done much to death machine, had no time. Tommarow progress will be made, locked front axle, front bumper, possibly rear bumper, grille maybe getting mounted up and hood and such. So much when I take it to the shop tommarow. Anyhow. Wondering what color to paint it.. Thinking lime green with black accents with blue and black motor parts. What you all think?

Lime green over black oughta look good, but I think the blue will clash. I prefer the stark contrast of limiting to two colours, but hey- it's your ride!

You won't see the blue once I get it done. Gonna paint everything but the hood until I get my custom cowl done. Unfortunately not gonna happen today tho.. maybe this weekend.
