You could lower it... i mean not go crazy like i am. But i guess make a good looking "stance" so you can fart round on it, and tinker around. Wont learn anything unless you really experience it.

Hey guys And gals... So my transmission for my tractor is a h shift... With an input of a vertical shaft and a output of a horizontal shaft... Is their any transmissions out their that are like a h shift but have an input and output of a horzontal?

Not like a gearbox where its chain driven to the rear axle. only garden tractor rear transaxles have that unfortunately..

Not problem. You could go a go kart route with a honda clone deal, and a torque converter or a different clutch

That is a RUGG "Carpet Cutt" machine without a doubt.  (EDIT, yeah now I'm doubting a little looking at other pics, but RUGG made most of the micro tractors in the late 60's).

I built one for my first tractor but sold it when times got tough.  Never saw it run...   Crying or Very sad 

I think the year is a 1968 or 1969.  It originally had a 5hp B&S Flatty.  Great little machine.  It's already a mini, so IMHO it's begging to be made into a little speed machine.   Cool 

Keep us posted on this cool little machine!

Yep, looks like a Huffy Caprice! Sorry about the mislead.

Here's the link I found TRACTOR DATA DOT COM

And a pic of the original.

The similarity between all these micro tractors is (I think) more than just a coincidence. They must have been made by the same company. Like MTD made everything for everyone for years...
