Mud
Utility
Tractor

Simple project build. I'm taking a square nose craftsman 2 and swapping out the 16 oppy and replacing it with either a 18 vanny or 11 hp flatty that I have. Swapping the foote out with a 820 peerless hopefully and doing a 1:1 pulley ratio. Probably 5 to 5. Then atv mud tires. And a heavier clutch spring. Then small things like hood latch lights brake lights and gas pedal of course

Update #1
Traded the 16 for 2 11 flattys and they have no gov on them at all! Cool! Gonna clean them up and use both of them till they blow up and in the meantime I'm going to search for a 12.5 flatty in good shape that don't burn oil. So for now I'm cleaning the carbs on them and gonna run the balls off them lol Next update soon to come!

Sounds like you`re getting on! The 11hp Briggs Flatty’s are absolutely bombproof! I currently have a 12hp flatty, runs great and has loads of torque. Could we see some pictures of the build?
