I have a 13.5 hp craftsman (year and model unknown. model no. possibly 917) that I'm building for mud and speed. it is about 20% done. as you see in the video, the only thing ive done is paint, deck removal, and a side pipe.  there is a lot to be done. im not gonna list any ideas bc I don't want people using my idea (just to play it safe). willis923 can also tell you about the tractor
