I Finally found the original brand of my lawn tractor. It isn't a Dynamark at all but an Arctic Cat. It seems that the stock paint was pink and black... Here is the exact picture of my Arctic Cat.

Actually, Arctic cat colors are black , green and purple- ive owned a few arctic cat snowmobiles.

Id definitly restore it now- thats a rare tractor. I never even knew they made lawntractors, i think i mentioned i did have a minibike - i was too young to know just how rare they were.....


MSTEELE: Leave it to idiots to invent a new fad....the funny bit of that video was at the end where the bubba gump dude was driving on the wrong side of the road AND blowing off that stop sign AND almost causing an accident.

Yeah, I'm definitely not going to put any upgrades that can't be removed if I want to restore the Cat to stock.

Here's a small update on the Cat. I did not take off the tape due to wet paint. The red did turn out really well Very Happy. I hope to do the hood this coming long week-end and get the engine running.

Thanks guys!

Tremclad is amazing.
I think it's Rustoleum in the States, not sure what it would be in Scotland though, but I would highly recomend it to anyone!Very Happy

Rustolium is a great paint. I use it all the time. The paint looks great so far, I'm enjoying watching this thread.

Thanks FearlessFront,
I'm using a clear coat on everything. Want a nice smooth finish on the whole tractor when I'm done.
So over this long week-end, I went over to Arild's place. We replaced the carb and she fired right up. Even got her driving with basically just a chassis Razz

I also got the racing stripes painted on the hood.

Pick up lawn tractor - Page 3 P5221312
A strange thing happened though when I put some clear coat on the stripes. On the bottom of the middle stripe, a weird pattern emerged from the surface. It reminded me of a magnetized iron, when the iron 'stands up'.

There was also an extreme amount of corrosion on the bottom of one of the sides of the bed. Got rid of that now though Smile Pick up lawn tractor - Page 3 P5221313

Well, progress is slow but it's coming.

Thanks for the support, always appreciated!

I sanded some of the engine cowl and found some old stickers. It's for sure a Briggs & Stratton engine. Cool

I also primed the tailgate, air filter cover and one side of the box. The other is almost done being sanded. Smile

Sorry for a very long wait for an update. I haven't really had much done cause I'm presently at the mercy of some people in Vancouver to finish making my steering gear and the clutch pedal still isn't completely done. For those who might not have seen my most recent video, here it is with another one and some pics.

The Arctic Cat is still going to be a mild mod though. The steering gear should be done sometime next week. I'm still planning on changing the exhaust, doing a pulley swap, getting a battery,(probably a motorcycle one), getting all the electrical sorted out,[key start, lights, some sort of gauge, cigarette lighter (just for restoring it to stock, somewhat Very Happy], and of course getting some nice nobbers! Any ideas on how i could fit some bigger tires for the back would be great!
Thanks.

Red engine shroud looks awesome, makes it look like a newer motor. Very nice work on the paint too! Just need the rims painted now.

To get knobbly back tyres on, you MAY need to space out the rims a bit, looks pretty close to the bed walls. But its just a case of finding the correct size tyres and mounting it on the rims.
Where did you get the stickerrs on the tail gate by the way?

Comming along nicely- the new stickers make it look original - while youre restoring it , you might want to change the trans oil- looks like my 82 dynamarks trans- when i changed that it looked pretty yukky .

A set of AG tires would set it off- i dont think theyre much larger then stockers- for bigger wheels, youd need adapters to widen the stance.

It still amazes me someone would actually throw away such a cool tractor , it wasnt in that bad of shape either- thier loss is definitly your gain.
