The mower looks good. I love those Briggs flatheads, if you look after them they are really reliable.

Nice man, pretty reliable setup, between the MST and the 12.5.  So are you getting those knobbies you found on craigslist?  Any pulley swap plans?

The knobbies are like 2.5 hrs away and my dad doesn’t wanna drive that so I’m gonna see if the guy will meet me half way on the drive.

No not even thinking about pulley swapping it I don’t know any good pulley sizes.

TSC has a good 4.5" front pulley, get a 4" rear pulley there too, should be about 16 MPH.

I've heard you don't need to. If you plan to ford deep water, I'd look into it, but that's quite a bit of fab work. I would double up the springs tho.

I would recommend a double pulley clutch, it helps greatly reduce belt slip especially if you want to pull heavy loads. They aren't that hard to fab up, you can do it without a welder too.
