I recently started to build a 1977 sears suburban 18/6. Right now it has a set of 26 inch rear kenda executioners and a 2500# winch and a home built rack.

Backroadbomber thanks i was gonna wait till the 2016 build off but thats to far away from now. I plan on beefing up the motor and trying to squeeze a little more hp out of it and definitely making it more reliable i also plan on making a better front bumper and a tool box for my rack and also going to try to buy new front taller tires if they will fit, also gonna buy some more leds and maybe a light bar. Theres alot of thing that ill probaly do but im just forgeting

Does anybody know of anywhere to get any onan parts. Especially like a carb or fuel pump? I know onan parts are hard to find and expensive if u can find anything.

I used to own an old onan CCK 18hp and parts are really hard to find and incredibly expensive. there aer a few private sellers on the web but most of your luck will be ebay. The guy that has a lot of parts online isnt always on his site so its kinda useless. good luck, just my two cents, others may have better more hopeful answers lol.

You cant really see in that last pic but ever since i put the 26 inch rear tires on it. It sets way forward and just makes it look a little weird. What I would usally do is put 18 inch tires upfront but i cant do that on this becuase the onan sits so far to the left that i wont be able to clear the tires. So im going to try to drop the front axle 2 inches only thing im trying to think about is steering

Ive been.looking at some projects on here and ive been really liking the idea of adding a suspension to my front axle after I lift it i'm defintly atleast adding some shocks also I have to figure out a smaller gas tank so I can raise my rear fenders which I had to take off when put on my rear tires and after that i'm gonna build a little bit better looking and better functioning rear rack

Alright so it's been a long time since I've posted anything on here so I ended up buying a set of old Jd 18inch rear tires that I mounted up on my stock rim so the tractor would sit more level. Also I got rid of the ugly rear rack and found a way to bolt on my rear fenders again.
