Looks pretty good! Ya gonna put some rubber or something between the tank and the bracket? Dont want the metal on metal to cause a hole in the tank or anything haha.

yeah i REALLY like the exhaust, the tone is great ! and i looks great too !

and i think the main thing is when i was doing donust last week and the right rear tire hooked and threw me off it, it probably cracked or bent the axle some, and the riding after that finished it..

oh well i needed to swap the mst anyways..

Exhaust looks good man! Kind of a bugger about your axle shaft, seems like you have a bit of bad luck when it comes to bending and breaking them haha.

yeah i love the new exhaust, but im kinda getting used to breaking my transaxle.. oh well. lets hope that the supports will fix my problem..

However, i was able to get some work done today !
i cracked open the mst and inspected everything in there, looks great, cleaned out the case and startet the doc locker 2.0 !

The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 7 20170888
this is where im at.
The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 7 20170886
The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 7 20170887
i was going for the weldless doc locker 2.0 but i changed my mind.
im going to get a slitghly smaller hub and make some kind of doc locker 1.5, use the hub and weld parts of the original crosspin. i just like it better that way.
Also getting a 5 inch pulley for the mst more speeeds !!
still trying to get new rear tires for cheap haha

well i only got time to get the parts today.

got a new pulley 5inch to remplace the 6 inch on the transaxle. still using the 8 inch in front.
got a lock collar to get the doc locker done with the new hub
and i got some nice pillowblock bearings to support the axle ! with the supports ill be able to space the tires out a little more than stock for more stability, and better donuts Wink

The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 7 20170889

hoping to get this thing The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 7 102878487 soon ! should be sweet with the new pulley swap and the muffler, and possibly new tires !!

Looking good, does the top half fit ok with the bearings in there? Mine didn't seem completely cut out on the top side. Bottom was good.

last weekend i properly rewired the thing with crimp connectors and all, got the boost system thingy nicely installed, rebuilt the starter with used brushed, again, and did a headlight mod.

heres some pics.

a couple months ago i bought a pack of cheap 1156 led tailight bulbs, 10 for 2$. but they are only rated to about 1.5W each, so about equivalent to a 15W incandescent. factory bulbs are 22W. so a single bulb per headlight wasnt enought, i just drilled a one inch hole in the enclosure and fitted some spare sockets i got off another tractor. worked great. now i have the equivalent of 60W of lighting but it only uses 6 watts, with the dual battery setup it means i could run them for days !

Now i have leds all around !

wiring all cleaned up and ziptied haha
i also had to instal a choke cable, i could get it to start without a little choke, its getting cold here.. i still have to get a longer cable and install it in the dash..

used a 50A anderson connector.

ill make a couple of special cables, all my tractors have this connector hooked up to their batteries so i have a conveniant way to boost them or other tractors.. i can also use this connector to charge the batteries or extend the capacity of them by storing another one in the bumper and connecting it with the main ones. (now i always carry a small battery with the adaptor to boost the tractor if i drain the batteries on the trail)

i also ran a wire for the low oil pressure switch, ill get a red indicator led to install on the dash to show low oil pressure.. gettin fancy

axle supports are coming.

-wire up the engine, dual diode setup DONE but redoing it with proper connectors
-make up an exhaust, 2 to 1, with atv mufller
-battery boost system, anderson plug ?
