got a new belt for it and new back pully running a 4.5 inch on rear and stock 3 inch on front. and ha finally it can bring the trailer where its been in the last while by itself not pulled by the truck! im still deciding colors for it.. thats why paints all effed up lol ! might keep back john deere green and do the side steps yellow leave hood the way it is and paint frame and dash shiny black and the rims yellow too, also going to change the colour of the engine shroud its currently red its a 12.5 ohv Ic GOLD im gunna paint it yellow and paint the front grill john deere yellow also!**
i think ALSO need ideas for the exhaust i bought a 90degree for it so i could use the tires on it bc it would hit with the exhaust so now the exhaust is pointed down. straight piped. NEED ideas, or i can leave it like that also!

Yea, I see that alot of people use tractors like that for rally or offroad mowers, mine is like that except it has a smaller/lower hood that you can see over alot better. This looks good so far keep up the good work.

i did that too and it started to smoke i dont know if i did it wrong but there are two wires coming out of mine.

well the charging system when i hook it up it starts smoking from under the shroud, so i need to cut the wires. thats why i was gunna hook the light straight to the motor,

How have you guys tried to wire these?

Of the two wired, one is 12VDC(+). This wire is your charge wire, and is generally red, and has a diode installed in line, close to the connector. The other wire is 12VAC- which comes off the lighting coil. It is AC not DC and is meant to run your headlights only. Do not tie this wire into your DC electrical system.
