Nice to see you got some real tires on it.

Back in running condition. Except I think I forgot to finish the belt guide. Had some belt dragging issues and then a rod knock/rattle kind of noise that I think was part of my belt guides that I never tightened the bolts on. Steering is the next thing to straighten out...eventually.

Picked up another System 5010....FREEEEEEE. Buddy of mine picked it up somewhere with the intention of selling it, but no one wanted it I guess. Had the deck too, but I let him keep that since I don't plan on mowing grass with it. The plan with the 1x baja Simplicity is to clean it up and get it running good again, then try to sell it at an engine show in a couple weeks. Doesn't run too good again, I'll have to clean the carb out correctly this time.

The new machine is in decent shape for a project. Minimal rust, tires hold air and rolls free so I can easily move it around before I get to working on it.

I looked under the 1x simplicity too see why the belt drags so bad. Looks like the guides are bolted on, so I don't know why it doesn't work too good.

My eventual idea for the new one is a 230cc suzuki ATV engine which has 5 speeds forward, electric start, and reverse. Full suspension, either custom made or using parts from the suzuki quadsport or both. Once you strip the stock wheels and everything down, there wouldn't be too much left of the original tractor, so if I did follow through with that project, I would try to keep the simplicity frame and use as much of it as I could. Basicly keep the frame, grill, hood, dash, and rear fenders, then just build everything around it.

The final picture of the 1x simplicity. Sold it today, more room for future projects. I had it tipped up to weld a quick hack job belt guide on around the engine pulley. It worked to keep the clutch from dragging for about 30 seconds, then the belt flipped inside out. I think the stupid twisted belt simplicity design is just messed up no matter what you do. Probably can get it to work good somehow. I don't know why it worked half way ok before, but now it keeps flipping. Ran ok at least after I cleaned the carb out. The other stock simplicity 5010 is still in storage awaiting a decision on what to turn it into. I think the suzuki atv that I was going to steal parts from is going to be sold also, so I might do something else with it. Maybe a sears 600 whatever transaxle and some sort of horizontal shaft engine would be neat in the simplicity chassis.
