or are you just gonna oof it into gear?

That's funny. I just about finished the belt system for this.

Not a great picture but you can kinda see what's going on. Just a regular single pulley clutch. You may recognize that the clutch is in fact on the wrong side of the belt, but for this I don't think that's an issue
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 2 20181225

The lever i made for it. It's Budgie's deck lift lever i cut up and bent. It may or may not stay like this, we'll see.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 2 20181224

Mighty was correct about the residual drag, it does have a bit in neutral

The belt does have a tendency to spin when the clutch is disengaged. I added a few keepers and it got a bit better. I can still stop it by hand so i figure it won't be an issue. I'll keep it in neutral most of the time anyway so.

What's left to do here as far as i can tell:
-Fairlead
-Weld drum together
-Figure out how I'm securing the first few wraps on the drum (I did order some winch rope btw, should be here around christmas)
-Winch brake setup (Using the stock caliper on the 700)
-Check whatever lubricant is in the 700 I haven't even popped the plug yet and I've had it a year
-Blow everything back apart and paint it

Got a good bit done today

Made a fairlead from the bumper and some square tubing

A brake for the winch. The cable is a regular mower throttle control. I have yet to mount it.

Thanks. I did do the math and it came out to like 23rpm at idle, but i think it's more like 35 to 40. Just going by eye though.

Cool setup. You can probably pull out the rope while it is neutral? Maybe drill a hole on the side of the drum to secure it with a knot.

Winch brake lever, regular mower throttle cable with a little modification to put a knob on
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 2 20181228

Orientation of brake actuator lever had to be swapped back to normal for practicality reasons. Didn't require any modifications of hardware.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 2 20181229

Anyway here it is all together and painted with some old rope on. The new rope should be here tomorrow or the next day.

to have the shifter for the winch in front instead of near the dash is kinda stupid solved IMO cuz if U winch U sit on the mower and steer, throttle,... instead of standing near the grill to shift

But the clutch is operated from the seat. So once you put the winch in gear it can be fully operated while sitting in the seat.

Looks great to me Rich!

Thanks Allis.

I was thinking about a push/pull shifter at the seat, but that would've been some tough engineering. Really once i choose a gear I can operate the clutch from the seat and that'll work fine.

only have one thing to nit pick, I think you should add some braces to the pillow blocks holding the drum. I think it will be fine pulling the tractor, but I think youll end up using this for heavy pulling at some point and bend your mounts

Those mounts are 3/8" steel lol I'm not worried

This is like 30 or 40 feet of ⅝ rope, so i think 50 of ¼ should fit

oooo I like the lever placement for the winch clutch a lot.  

Looked like a successful test until something broke.  What broke?

The rope. It didn't like the repeated rubbing at the fairlead. I did that test several times before I filmed it lol.

Yeah that's one thing I was going to mention.  I'd rather see a fairlead with rollers.

I think the real winch rope will work with this fairlead. Redline's seemed to work, although i think he switched to cable later on. We'll see how it goes i guess
