Hello all!

Just introducing myself before I start really digging into the forum. I got a parts mower in a deal that I've turned into an off roader. So far I have stripped it down of all extra parts, put a 5" pulley on the rear and 4.5 on the front, added some fuel carriers and fixed what needed to be fixed. I welded the front of the frame that was cracking, unstuck the 12hp motor to get it running and various other little things. It's an early 90's grey craftsman.
Right now it goes pretty good in the woods. I really need better front tires and I know I should at least have a look into the transaxle and change the grease.
So far I have been sticking by my house but since I border a state forest I have been able to go pretty far. The extra fuel I can carry certainly is nice. It's only about a half gallon but it gets me home.
I will post pictures when I get near a computer.

I certainly like it. Simple to use and work on. I'm adding a axe/hammer combo mount to it today and putting a pull strap somewhere on it to help out in the woods. I've already run into a few places that an axe would really help me pass.
