Not sure if this is the right place for this.
I bought this MTD 12hp awhile ago for 100$, rebuild motor but didn't run when I got it. After playing the the carb and changing old gas, works just fine.
If someone can tell me about this mower please do, I have no info about it not even the year
First I had no real plans besides removing the mower deck and changing pulleys, I have no idea on the sizes I put on. I put what I had on hand. Right now it goes 22mph. Wasn't really safe, no brakes, top heavy and belt too tight so no clutch..
Then it sat for 2 months before really doing some research on what I wanted to do.
Initial plans for now are
-Get new tires (done)
-Lower frame 3-4 inches
-After the first two are done, Get the proper pulley ratios
-Brakes, no idea what I will do yet
-New battery (done)
-lower seat and steering wheel
-Install rpm/speedo (if that's even possible)
-Vertical straight pipe
Got myself brand new tires and rims for 90$. What a steal
Made homemade hubs with the stock rims by cutting them and keeping the middle and drilling new holes. Then painting them
Once install. Looks great.
Got myself a new amperage gauge from the junkyard for 2$ since mine is broken.
That's it for now, I still need to get bigger rims for the front hubs since mine are too small. After that I can start lowering the frame. Still have to figure a way to lower the front. Any help on that would be appreciated.
Also I was wondering, I want to change the headlights and people are telling me that I will kill my stator. Are they right? Cause I looked a bit and I'm getting mixed results..
