So a few weeks back I got a lt1000 from a friend for free. It had a bad transaxle but I thought to my self well i will will find a transaxle. After about 2 weeks of looking I found one at my local flea market for 50 bucks so I picked it up. Last night I was in an itching mood so I went to ace hardware picked up a 3 inch pully for 10 bucks. When I got it all home I realized that my belt was the wrong size. I thought it over for about 20 mins and I thought about a tensioner pully. I put one of my belt pulleys on then it got tight. I have many upgrade to do soon in mind. Let me know what y'all think. Give me some ideas. I'm looking to keep this thread going. I'll get pictures up tonite. Give me feed back.

what are you planning on doing to it?
what kind of transaxle did you put in?
whats powering it?

locked rear is always a good idea, tires, direct steer, HD brakes,

I'm planning to throw some atv tires on it and paint for now. I think it's a pearless 930. It's a 15.5 single cylinder Briggs

My craftsman is the one on the left. The one on the right is a friend of mine. I honestly have no clue what type of mower it is.

We'll I know it's been a while but I have done Los of things to the mower   This is what I have done
-built a stack exhaust
-bought rear tires from tractor supply
-welded up my front bumper and got it mounted
-built a rear rack out of some angle I had laying around
-found a seat from a old Massey and threw it on there
-ran out of gas and had to push it a mile
-muddled and romped the hell out of it

The tractor will be getting paint tom when I get home from school all flat black with the bumper rack and maybe seat red the rims will be black. I was thinking of doing the seat like fluorescent orange since that's the original color of it. What is y'all's in put I would love the ideas of other mud mower modders

Looks like you have a great rig right there, the stack must sound interesting using the square stock. Maybe locking the axle for more traction if needed, upgraded lights, winch, anything that makes it easier to rid and more comfort.

The stack is actually two pieces of angle that I welded together. It's hot a nice deep rumble to it. I'll post a pic of it. I'm planning on doing some LEDs in place of the stock lights maybe a cheap harbor freight winch but I have a come along so that's not on the top of my list

I took the stock box then cut the j pipe off the. I butt welded a piece of 1 inch plumbing pipe then I I took a 5 inch piece of fence post and cut notches out with a side grinder then I bent the notches in on to the plumping pipe then welded it solid. Then I took two pieces of angle from a bed frame and welded them together to make my square stack then I just welded that straight to the fence post then I took a propane torch and blued the whole thing to prevent rust. Wala my exhaust

As far as a pullstart I actually had one and then it ripped off so for now I'm trusting my battery.

That's what I thought. I saw it on a cummins truck once and I started thinking of ways to do it on my mower. Right now I'm trying to make a flapper for it so I can leave the mower out side and have more room in the garage for working on my motorcycle.

Last night I washed the mower so that I will have a clean surface to paint. I'm planning on painting tonite when I get home from school

Since my paint job will be red and black I'm thinking the name either lucifer or devil dog. What are your guys ideas for names? I'm open to everything.

You really should. They would have good names.

I'm thinking of doing shocks on the tractor maybe to give it alittle more stability and it will be say to add a lift when I feel like doing that
