Neat. I like your exhaust flange. Thats a good idea, I might use it on the Gravely.

I don't really like the design. What's worse is that the axle doesn't stick all the way through the rim. It only goes in about 1/3rd of the way which eggs out the rim. When I take everything apart to lock up the rear, I plan on welding some pipe on as extentions to keep the rim on straight.

I would have made it all one piece, but you need to be able to spin the muffler around to get it out so it needed to be in two sections. I used the original flange and 90 degree bend from the engine and the flange is about where the stock muffler was. You can get whatever size washers you need for flanges at home depot or lowes. I drilled the holes so that it uses the same gasket as the one on the engine. That way it's easy to remember what it fits.

What I would do for the rims is weld on some 3-lug hubs and put different rims on it.  Most of the ones I had, had the hubs rusted fast.

If its a 1" axle you could get any hub really. A 4 lug will let you fit most ATV rims.

The axles are 1''. I would just weld some hubs on, but you can't do that if you want to take the transmission apart. The case halves split vertically not horizontally like a new mower trans. You have to slide them off the axles to get it apart.

Also, I got a gopro, but i'm having some problems in moving files around and things of that nature. Video quality turned out a little messed up.

Yeah true...

Sadly these axles don't use key-ways.. they use that bolt or pin that holds the rim on.

I found an trans-axle from a newer model Simplicity that looked roughly the same and it used key-ways.

Snowed again, 5" give or take. This time it stayed cold so the snow is fluffy and easier to drive through. Finally got my gopro mostly figured out so the video quality is a little better. Tried a few different angles.

You should make a mount like Fearless made.  Then it can sit up higher and get better shots of the action. I will be making one for the rally (and RMWS) when I get my cheaper imitation gopro.

Nice Gloves!

Nice positions! Rollbar mount comes in handy. I'm still thinking up ideas, maybe a undercarriage shot. You use that front bumper a lot lol. I like the riding area too.

I was thinking about making an overhead mount like fearless did, seems to work out pretty good. For the under the side bar shots, you just need to be careful not to crush the camera on a log or something. I had a couple shots looking backwards from beside the seat too, but I forgot I had them while editing and left them out. I wish I had a stream somewhere that was a couple feet deep to run through. I've got to look for a good spot somewhere to get some footage.

6" or so of wet heavy snow today. Temp was around 32F. More is supposed to be on the way in the next few days. Hopefully with some colder temperatures so this stuff freezes up a little.

lol you want ice you should come to the place I work all the forklift traffic packed the snow so hard when they tried to deliver our wood by rail a car got derailed because it couldnt break through the ice lol! 3 hours later 10 guys with pickaxes sledgehammers and a couple front loaders fixed it! Though it could have been prevented if someone just pushed some snow before it froze... >.>

That's pretty hard ice. We had a few inches of ice/freezing rain last night, then it rained about half of the day. It's supposed to be 18 tonight and 24 or so tomorrow. Still plenty of snow on the ground. Maybe tomorrow night it'll be hard enough do drive over. Someone said over a foot of snow is coming on sunday I think. I might have to get the snowmobile out to pack the trails down enough to get through with the mower. I don't mind if it stays cold, but this just makes a mess of everything. Should be some good mud to run through when it melts I guess.

Now they've changed their minds and the big storm this weekend is supposed to mostly miss me here. Not a problem, I didn't need any more snow.

Still a little too much snow to get through the trails. 40F today. Stuck. Transaxle hangs down too low in this thing and the snow packs under it.

Those tires...man... You gotta get a knife and cut the heck out of them! They load up so bad with mud and snow that they turn into slicks. Good thing you've got chains, but... If you cut the tires you'd be 10 times better off even without the chains!

That machine is still one of my favorites!  Cool
