bumper
rack
storage

better trailer hitch
charging system
air compressor and quick disconnect booster cables

Should be cool! When you say dual throttle, do you mean hand and foot throttle? That's what I'm planning on adding to mine as well.

Carlisle snow hogs and X-tracs are pretty commonly run on the front. Fearless runs the snow hogs and redneckcomputergeek runs the x-tracs. I still haven't decided between the two lol

The YT16s with the gear tx were prone to snapping axles. They had 23" tires on 12" wheels and 3/4" axles. They were not a bad mower, but using them for anything other than that was asking for trouble. You can overdrive the hydro a little. With the 27s and a mild pulley swap you should be able to get it in the 10mph range.

it all depends on how you build it too and for speed wise im looking to get between 20 and 30km/h

On the charging system, maybe a 10/12 SI GM alternator . The original 10 SI can go up to 63 amps (steel fan), while the original 12 SI alternator goes up to 94 amps (plastic fan). With a volt gauge and dummy light in the dash. Pretty easy and reliable setup.

where would be the best place to mount it as this tractor may see some mud on the trails and such

Looks like a vertical shaft engine. Maybe mount a pulley on top of the engine, centering would be mandatory though, like a home made pull start setup, to drive the alternator. Then make a bracket to hold alternator in front of motor. In engine compartment away from any mud.

Just axles?

lol!

I dont know how the hydro trans compares to this, but an axle truss might not be a bad idea if it has the long axles like this one.

To the transaxle breakage it's probs because you had a Spicer in there I'm trying to find a peerless 820 transaxle and I do plan on adding lots support in that area and skid plate for sure only because it will take lots of abuse and I will take pics when I do the dual throttle

That particular spicer is identical to a peerless... not sure what one though.

The rig was free anyway. Woot.

Yeah the one that's in mine is a hydro and it's got the 1 inch axles just like the peerless 820 so I'm hoping that will be heavy duty enough

Just a lil update I finally decided to pull it out and do an lil bit of work to it I'm currently working on pulling turf savers 20 10 8 on the front with a mild lift and got rid of all the hydro setup and I finally found a peerless 820 transaxle already locked and greased
