Ah, it's somewhat good that some things never change.

Clamped up the skid plate where I wanted it and welded on four tabs behind it. I then drilled through both skid plate and mounts with a 5/16” drill, and tapped the mounts 3/8-16 and drilled the holes in the skid plate up to clear a 3/8” bolt. Good way to make bolt holes and tapped holes line up, without any transfer punches or whatever nonsense.

Should be pretty sturdy.

New bearing in one idler and a fresh idler on the other side. Super quiet belt system now!

Running to the bottom of the hill because I didn’t know if the tractor was coming down after me

Oopsie. Folded my seat like an omelette

Straightened my seat and hood some and she started right back up and i went and hit the hill I was on my way to.

The softness of the bighorns is sort of getting the best of me. It’s easy to get the tractor on a side hill and have the lower tire suck under you. Perhaps I should just put more air in them.

Considering the price of new idler pulleys these days I think that's an excellent solution! I'm going to give that a go on an old pulley myself! I didn't notice before but that's a Roper/AYP steering wheel ya? Looks identical to the one on the Trailblazer but the logo looks slightly different.

Heck, seats aren't cheap these days either so maybe it's time to build a roll bar for it!


My All Terrain Tractors:
- "The WarHorse" ~ 1984 Sears Craftsman LT(V)11 (MTD Built) (Romping in Progress!)
- Roper "Trailblazer" ~ 1986 Roper LT110CR (Trailblazing in Progress!)
- The "Mud Duck" ~ 1969 Bolens 1225 Hydro (2022 Build Off 2nd place!)
- The "Silver Bullet" ~ 1984 Sears Craftsman LT(V)11 (MTD Built) (Part 1)
- The "Silver Bullet" (Take 2) ~ 2024 Build Off entry (Work in progress)

I actually found a good deal on some idler pulleys on eBay. It’s harder to replace the bearings in the smaller idlers. 3-1/2” V idler

And yes, it’s an AYP steering wheel, it’s actually original to the tractor. As for the seat, it’s one of the ones with a nice rubber cover that I could switch to a different seat pan if I needed to

MUTT has come a long way from being the dark green Craftsman from what seems forever ago. Funny most people don't realize it with the snapper hood.
Very Happy

Most people have never even seen one of the snapper riders that the hood came off of, they are somewhat scarce. I get a lot of people saying “I’ve never seen a snapper like that before!” lol! And yes, Mutt is a world away from what it was back in the day.

Hopefully I can get the hood and grille straightened out some so I can build an engine cage to preserve everything. Much more abuse and I think the lower corners of my grille will just snap.

This other oil cooler I bought is also obscenely large. I can fit it on the frame behind the engine but I may still shorten it some.

Can you mount it vertically? Might give you more room doing so. Not sure if it would lessen the efficiency of it?

I can definitely mount it vertically, but I’m not sure if having the oil cooler up high would create a problem with low oil pressure at startup from the cooler draining out with the engine off.

Realized I bent my dash mount lol. I think I’ll make my own dash mounts out of something heavier. Im not sure why I even used the stock mounts
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 E9fbe310

Also today my pod filter showed up, and I went to H&H and bought some material for an engine cage and dash mounts, as well as finally paying for the material for the front axle I made like a month ago lol!

Fancy wheelbearings!
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 3d3b8810

They’re not sealed but I don’t see those rollers exploding anytime soon.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 4fdd7110

Big tires back on.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 1c077710

The pod filter is on but I forgot to take a pic of that.

Finally got the guts to cut this oil cooler down
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 03bf4d10

Why the heck is there a spring in there?!? Something to improve oil flow to distribute heat better??
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 507bc510

Cut the fins down the middle and they sort of twist right off.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 F0b1ad10

Much more appropriately sized oil cooler. I had sort of roughed up the ends for the hose to grab but mr.modified gave me the idea to just flare it. I forgot my brake flaring tool went up that big lol. So after I took this pic i flared the ends out a bit with that and now the hose shouldn’t ever slip off.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 D75b4c10

Haspin in just a few days! I don’t know that I’ll have an engine cage done in time but I definitely need this oil cooler and a catch can.

You could be on something about flow.  Maybe to get fluid to spiral through the tube to better make the U bend?

I’m not sure. Maybe something about heat distribution.

I probably won’t kick this thing off. I usually rest my foot on the end of the pedal where the big washer is.

Oil cooler kinda in there

I really need to go down to 3/8” hoses and add elbows at the engine side but this is what I have for now. It’s not as close to the exhaust as it looks.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 1ecddf10

Then I had to tear stuff back apart because I didn’t tape one of the fittings well enough. Oh well. It doesn’t leak now.

My mild steel rotor seems that it may have glazed over. I put mutt up on the jack and pulled the right wheel off, then ground the rotor with a flap disk while the tractor was idling in 6th gear. We’ll have to see about this one lol

Quick and dirty PVC catch can that may or may not even work

Well unfortunately I am here to report that mutt did not survive Haspin lol! As soon as I unloaded her off the truck the drag link literally fell apart, which was pretty incredible considering what it’s been through over…idk…5 years?

After I got that fixed I got a bit of riding in
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 02e75f10

Bernie in the back left there, the mowron’s spare rig. I had a lot of fun on bernie after Mutt broke  Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 2664539216
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 D11f4410

After riding with the Mowrons I went out to explore on my own and then seemed to have spun the locker hub off of the axle in the trans.

Tow of shame by stretch’s jeep
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 C419f110


I have fresh outer axle bearings and a new input bearing on the way. I think I’m just gonna go back and weld the crap out of the locker, and then NOT turn everything back flush.

Locker was a mess
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 E42e9910

I actually managed to cut the welds out and get it off
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 F075f210

I chamfered the everloving crap out of the hub and put like 5 rods of 1/8” 6013 @ 120a on either side, and only trimmed off enough for the carrier sides to close on the bull gear.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 Ea3c7710

This warped the heck out of the axle. I had to set up and straighten it.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 C3c03f10

Straight enough! It rolls in the case!
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 A3271110

My inspection setup lol
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 64d1f010

I cut my brake shaft off and replaced the bearing with a closed end one.
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 667ff110

Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 Ee686110

Naturally one of the mount holes stripped so I had to go up to 3/8”

Green loctite to set my hubs in place. A full day of riding and they haven’t come loose!
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" Part II - Page 16 0d018010
