Will I picked up a early 80's sears about 2-3 weeks ago it was rode hard and put away wet lol. I pulled the carb off as it was sitting with no breather on it. Cleaned the carb up checked spark,cleaned nest out under the flywheel cover. some fresh gas and got it up and running. Still needs a tune up oil/plug/carb adj. But did not smoke when I test drove it cheers 
This has both the horizontal and vertical drive as it has a right angle gearbox. And has a 4 speed oil filled transaxle with 1'' axles and 5 lug hubs Cool   Heres some pics of it.

When I first got it

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_204014_zpsea1663df
In shop with Engine/front & rear sheet metal removed

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_234100_zps016f861b
Battery box built

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_203654_zpsb0d1ad69
Right angle gear box tapped and grease fitting added  Was lucky it has no bearing play or wear

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_195828_zpsbcec7c59

Nice big beefy brake setup. That's been taken apart serviced and put back together works great!

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_211402_zpsf539b2ea
Added another spring inside my original one for better belt tension

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_135213_zps16ed6014
I cut about 1/2'' from the front frame/steering metal for clearance of the tie rod

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_135334_zps66893d30
Front axle had a hump on each side where it bottomed out I cut those off to gain 1/2'' more flex better then nothing lol that's y
I had to cut the other section for the tie rod

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_135348_zps00b8fb88
Original steering had a rubber disk,removed that and used a 1/2'' universal. This section is removable w/2 bolts to replace steering gear or steering shaft bearings if needed.

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_135406_zps4d31fa36
2'' angle welded to keep steering colume inplace as it no longer moves and now supports the bearings for the 5/8 shaft

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130906_135424_zps12bc6a20
Sealed bearings installed/ 5/8 steering shaft. All removable if needed.

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130912_163314_zpsd0cc56c7
My 11hp B&S engine has points and I found oil in there. Top seal is dry so im thinking its where the points rod go's into block.
Points are getting removed, and hole filled and then the newer magneto coil? is going on.


This is where im currently at  got to get the points out/etc and then bolt engine onto tractor make sure new belt fits and a lot more stuff!!! bumper/winch/stack/tires/lights/....... lol

Thanks man yea I really dig it the only thing I might do is the pins that hold the universal together sometimes might back out as I seen when using them in the garage so ill prob put a tac weld on them so they wont come out.

I really like this build, the attention to detail and high quality of mods is great. Ill definitely be watching this one. Ive actually been on the lookout for one of these tractors for awhile, I have a soft spot for them. Are you planning on locking the rearend? I highly recommend it. Whats your plan for tires?

Thanks man and I just got it back together and just got motor put on I, plan on taking it a few test romps on stock tires just to see how the stuff will hold up like steering/brakes/also I did a slight pulley swap so I wanna see how that's gunna do. Im going to run 25x8-12 Kenda K538 Executioner tires in rear and a set of atv tires in front (came off Chinese atv) As of the rear axle ill most likely lock it but I just want to make sure everything is going to hold up first. There will be a video up soon of it.

That's a really cool tractor! I like that particular series of Sears- al LT version of it is what I am Building General Mayhem out of. You've got the "Big Brother" and I am impressed with the factory components on that thing.

You've done a great job with the mods, and I look forward to it's completion. How did the conversion to the modern CDI coil go?

yea I like this this is the first more beefy tractor I had to work with. I like that its all ready got the double clutch set up/oil filled transaxle/ 1'' axles. And the coil conversion was easy as heck lol I usally do it to any one I get that has the points.
I cant wait till everything is good so I can paint it lol

Update  took it for a test drive did steering works really good shifts good but the  pulley swap I did 7'' to 5'' on the rear did not really increase speed at all!! lol  So its now back on the operating table getting another pulley swap. And some more modds.
Also plan was to run the Kendra executioner tires but scored some on cl for $50

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_122723_zpsb9bb389b
27x10-12 ITP Mud Lites scored on cl for $50 Very Happy 


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_122738_zpsee17f884
general quick fit she's gunna be close lol

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_194707_zps3f764b95
Removed my right angle gearbox so I can start the pulley swap.

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_194747_zps78bb8d11
Peerless gearbox with 3/4 input/output shafts 1:1 ratio


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_204508_zps2ea49a02
Decided to use a 7'' pulley I had laying around. Just had to grind it some so I had room for the clip to hold it on.

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_204518_zps91032be2
Got the snap ring to fit nice and snug.


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_204601_zpsdf333dfc
Had to cut a section from the frame so the 7'' pulley would fit, then had to make a dash mount support as the original bolt hole wasn't gunna work lol


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_215721_zpsd2df95ec
angle box and pulley installed.


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_215746_zpseb439fc0
Close fit lol but doesn't rub or hit anywhere.

 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_215616_zps3eb69f7c
Cross member  that supports the foot rest/brake rod/and idler pulley spring hooks to. It was weak and kept getting bent.


 Mud Mutt Off Road Build IMG_20130914_215630_zps6807e676
Added support to the cross member stiffened it right up!





This is all I got done last night. But more to come soon.
