Hello from Michigan, I like what you guys got going on here. I figured I would share my first custom tractor build, I bought this tractor for $100 it was already painted so im not exactly sure what year and model it already had a donor 11hp briggs installed and a 6 speed transaxle installed it used to be a 4 or 5 speed I believe. I put a straight pipe/stack, swapped both pulleys, threw some better tires on it, fabricated a couple bumpers from scrap, put a "gas pedal" on it, and gutted the old wiring and put an ignition switch and push button starter. I've got it up to 35mph and still grade my driveway with it a few times a week.  Joining from michigan (plus pics of my 1st custom craftsman tractor) 102878487

Welcome welcome! Nice tractor! Looks to be a Craftsman of some sort. Those 11hp flatheads are great, I have one in my rat rod tractor and its a great little engine.

Thanks man. I love this little motor it sounds really good. This is a video I shot before I got my gas pedal installed.
Note: this engine is still running great and is governed as of right now.  Wink  Laughing

Thank you, I will definitely be nosing around. I'm considering building another tractor soon assuming I get this 18hp opposed twin to run. lol
