Me and my dad are building a speed tractor to have fun with at carshows and around the neighbor hood... All we did is change the engine to a predator 212cc honda clone... Turn around the rear axle... And take out everything like the brake system... Cause we got to mod. It so it will work with the axle turned around... We also took the old Briggs engine... The 3 speed... I will post some pictures... Once I get to my laptop... I also will eventually paint it

Did you ever take any pictures of this build? I would love to see any if you have some.

How fast does it go?

Is the steering sloppy on it?

Cause I first got the new engine in... And then couldn't go more than 1/4 foot throttle... Then tightened all the steering in it... Tierods, wheels, everything.... Then found I had play in the steering reducer gears... So took the gears off and welded the main ones together... Then had wheel problems... So put spacers between the wheels(washers)... Then found out he rear axle slide around on the frame... So then put more "washers" and that's mostly it... Direct drive stock height huffy caprice that goes 40/45 mph

I found a nice huffy caprice forsale for $200 OBO up in wisconsin, I am thinking about offering him $100 for it.

I want to put my running 14HP B&S on it and see how fast it will go since the current engine does not run

My only fear is that the engine won't fit and I would have to modify the steering or something

yeah do it!... Cause there is too versions... A white and blue like that one... And a white and orange which is what I have... The only difference I can tell is the slickers on the front/ side of hood... The oval one... Is on the blue... And the orange has a square/rectangle. Also I wouldn't get the one down here by me... Cause there is one on craigslist... And it's $350... And I don't feel like having two... Cause I got mine for free... Unless I found another cheap

That thing is so small I could proboly fit it in the back of my buddys ramcharger
