Hey guys I'm new to the site I have a craftsman gt3000 with 23 hp kohler v-twin. I have a front suspension from a 300ex sport bike with spindles,hubs, brakes, and shocks for my front end I'm also planning on a 6 motor pulley and a 5 in trans pulley . Along with separate brake and clutch with a gas pedal. I'll have pics soon as of right now it has 25 in dirt devil rear tires they look like mudlites. Help me out with ideas

Ya I've done some measuring and I think it should all work but I'm having trouble right now it's not getting fuel to the carb do the fuel pumps on those kohlers go out often

Trapshtr3792: Depends - id try rebuilding it first ( if its a vacuum type) - sometimes the rubber detiriorates inside. Other then that id look for a small cheep electric fuel pump.

Someone else did a similar setup- they used the front swing arms from an atv on thier tractor :

http://atltf.forumotion.com/project-builds-f4/atv-lawn-tractor-hybrid-t112.htm

I have pics somewhere of a custom built atv type tractor - they custom built a chassis - A arm front and swing arm rear - with a toro or huffy body on it . Looked sharp.

Instead of a trans, id look for either a 700 peerless ( has the lower input and side sprocket) - or a right angle gear box ( youll need a go kart clutch) - so you can run a 1" straight axle .

you can take out the fuel solenoid and replace it with a bolt or you can cut the plunger that stops fuel.

Note: alot of people say replace it with a bolt but that wont work on all engines. it didnt on my 18.5 hp v twin
