So i started this project out of an old John
Deere Sabre Garden tractor. Originally it was a hydrostat, but it shouldnt be too hard to convert to gear drive.(if im wrong, someone please tell me now before i get too far into it) As of now any actual progress has been halted by the complicated mess of linkages, springs, pulleys and everything else John
Deere stuck under that tractor. i have been working at clearing it out. For an engine, i am putting an 83 briggs 11hp. there is a 2 gallon fuel tank underneath the seat (anyone have any suggestions for fuel pumps?) There used to be a 21 hp kohler command in there, so there is plenty of room for my small single cyl. the steering is the heaviest i have ever seen on a lawnmower. The "pie slice" gear( or whatever its called, im sure most of you know what im talking about) is exactly an inch thick. it has a tierod to each tire and a cast iron front axle with bearings.
Anyone have any suggestions? Im gonna need help with this
So any help would be greatly appreciated
I was going to put a peerless 820 under there, but i have yet to find one.
(at this time I do not have pictures, The mower is at another location. Next time im there i will be sure to take some pictures so you guys have some visuals)
