This is just a bandaid for the time being till I finish my set of wheel hubs. Or I might save those hubs for another project and just buy some aftermarket wheel hubs for this craftsman. I can't make my mind up yet on what I need to do. But I do know I want to get rid of the slop out of the factory wheels (rear).  This should do it.

I didn't do it today but over the last few weeks I've tinkered with the $250 mud mower I bought a few weeks ago.

As you can see I found a Roper fender pan ($15), I had to cut it to fit on what was left of the original and because I'm not motivated to spend much time or money on it I just banged it on with self tapping screws! Lol

I also added handles, trimmed the front bumper to clear bigger tires which I stole of the Trailblazer temporarily. I gutted the wiring harness leaving only what was necessary for it to start to shut down, I don't understand why a lawn tractor needs a complicated setup involving a module and start/kill relay... maybe I'm just too basic!

Well, she ain't much but it's still a good beater tractor and great for newbies to the sport!

Ya... a little bit of snow on the ground and probably more to come still! I'm sure you have annoying bugs before us though! Lol

True. It sure does look good with those fenders on.

Years and Years ago I get a set of 27in mud tires. Finally slapped them on some wheels. Fronts were easy to deal with, but Imhaving trouble getting the bead to seat on the rears.

I also started degreasing it, pulled the Mule Drive System, and removed the ridiculous stack.

Short Stack.

Although they may have had it so high to keep the oil mist burping out of the muffler from hitting them in the face....

The 13hp is closest to stock. ($400)
Can't really afford the 15hp right now. ($500)
Probably don't want to go smaller but i like the price of the 8hp more.... ($300)

Test fit the 13hp Hobo Freight Engine.
Went with a 4" OD front pulley because that's the biggest tractor supply had in stock.

Need a shorter belt due to the engine being moved a couple inches back to fit the jug in the grill.

Reworked the clutch too and if the drive pulley is much larger they may interfere with each other...

Red Stag had to be pushed outside because I still don't have a head. Sad

My 2024 Build Off tractor Chubb Cadet is only at 5% but no reason why I can't pressure wash it, order parts to fix the oil leak and check tire fitment.
