Ok so i got the wiring almost done... i got a button and a toggle switch from lowes only to realize that the button wasnt a momentary push button till i got home.. so when i would press it it would keep tying to start untill i pressed it again. but i got all the wires, the solenoid, and the toggle switch rigged up and ready to go. i will try to go to a hardware store tomorrow cuz i want to finish up the wiring this weekend

Youre at the stage where i was with my murray - near stock hieght ( with those large wheels) and unlocked front axle with stock steering - itll handle badly - i never had mine in 5th, much less 6th because it was way too unstable.

Id search at least for a set of lower profile rear tires , lock the front axle and get a set of brakes - and wear a helmit.

Lower the tractor sets, better it will be to handle .

PostSubject: i think i need a front bumper   Speed Build - Page 6 Icon_minitimeAugust 9th 2011, 4:37 pm

alright so i was riding around today and i go to park it in its regular parking spot and wasnt paying attention and i ran straight into then fencepost. lol i was only goin like 2 miles an hour but it still had alot of force behind it.

Speed Build - Page 6 08091110
u can see the paint on the post that i hit and the front grill is plastic so its messed up pretty bad.

Speed Build - Page 6 08091111
this was after i fixed some of the cracks with a blow torch then repainted it. it doesnt look nearly as bad as it did but its still pretty cracked up. and it arleady had a few cracks but now its way worse.

so... moral of the story is i need a front bumper. thats gonna be my next little project. i dont want anything huge and outa place lookin just somethin small that will get the job done

A quicky pipe bumper could have saved that. My foot slipped off the clutch loading this in the truck. blew the front out of the bed... not a scratch on the tractorSpeed Build - Page 6 Photo_101810_002

hey man direct steer! you definately want it, ive almost killed my self multiple times from leaving the steering alone and going 40mph with it. also if no plans for upgraded brakes atleast use the stock ones and maintain them. its better to have some stopping power than now, ive rearended friends and hit stuff alot of the times because of no breakes, and believe me it doesnt feal good

DOWN SHIFT!!! lol!

Also another thing i have to figure out... and that is brakes. i want to use disk brakes but i need to find some for free or cheap. but i think i can start designing the rotor so im ready when i get them. heres some pics.


Speed Build - Page 6 Photo031
but i think i can fabricate a rotor to fit in between the wheel and frame. i saw this really good idea on a racing mower build and i think i can reproduce it

Speed Build - Page 6 Transa10
he has it mounted on the axle but it goes over the transaxle. i figure if i can do that i can squeeze brakes in there. what do yall think?
any links to this particular build

about the cracking, you could but a lot of JB weld, its like a expoy mix but super strong. id make the cracks even with themselves and just line the crack with the JB weld on both sides of the grill. then just have quality time with the sand paper and you should be good as new!
