I started this over in the new members section and I don't know how to link to it, so apologies in advance.

After a lot of busted knuckles, bad words and lotsa grinding, I realized I was gonna have to lower the steering wheel."Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 1111

So I made this in preparation for a universal joint.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Steeri10
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Steeri11

By this time my fingers & toes was froze so this just a little update.

Please feel free to criticize or recommend as I doubt you can offend me.

MightyRaze: ADMIN Edit-copied from new member section...

So, getting right to it, last year a guy gave me a TroyBilt with a 20 HP Intek he had in his back yard for at least a decade. It wasn't seized up so I took it, got it running and put it on my Craftsman. He fussed about the rest of the mower untill I got it as well. I didn't know what to do with it and in researching possibilities stumbled on you guys. I still don't know what to do with it, but apparently the possibilities are limitless.
There is no plan, no ultimate goal, just throw ideas at it and see what sticks.

I wanted to lower the seat and immediately discovered I'd have to shorten my legs to work the pedals. That not being an option, I guess I gotta stretch the frame. And move the brake pedal to the left. Not necessarily in that order. What could go wrong?

"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 210
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 310
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 410
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 510
You can never have to many clamps.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 610
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 710
And presto:
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 811
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 910
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 1010
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 1110
Now it appears the steering needs adjusting.
And you guys make it look so easy! I shoulda known better. This little bit took me the better part of 2 weeks.

Well, I don't know where this thing is goin(dumpster?) nor do I know where it belongs on your forum. All I know is I got a 24 HP V-twin for it($300 and counting) so I gotta finish it.

Glad to see you got a thread made up! From what I can see so far you are definitely not lacking in the fabrication skills department. Looking forward to seeing more work!

While I waited on parts, I watched paint dry.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Watchi10


Well, parts arrived and they look like they might work.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Thats_11
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Thats_10
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" Parts_10

But that aint gonna work.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" That_a10

While I didn't get pics of it, (to disgusted) I tried the hood & grill. They probably aint gonna work either.

So here is where criticism, recommendations and a witticism or 3 would be in order. (and greatly appreciated) I need a junkyard next door.

I just realized that looks to be an MTD frame. I'm in the same boat with one of my builds.

I see people say this all the time, but really what's the fun in having no challenge? Sure you get a tractor that works fine, throw some ATV tires on it, wheel it, and have a rig that looks like everyone elses. Bleh. Not my thing.

Either way, to each his own. Looking forward to seeing more progress!

"I just realized that looks to be an MTD frame"
It is. The sad part is I was given 2 more MTD's (1 has a 20 HP Briggs opposed twin on it-frozen) and most/part of a Murray.

"You've picked a difficult platform to work with."
I was given a !@#$%^&*()_+ platform to work with. Besides, it was all I had. Still is 'till I can get the others home. Then I'll have 2 1/2 more pcs of junk.

"Looking forward to seeing more progress!"

I think the multiquote only does 3 people. Just an FYI.

Progress has been made.
Had to raise the seat a bit.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 1_rais10

Found a hood/console that will work.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 2_this10

Though it will be a tight fit.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 3_tigh10

So tight I had to move the fuel pump.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 4_had_10

Some body work. Man I hate sheet metal.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 5_i_ha10

And this is where it is now.
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 6_fron10
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 7_righ10
"Ye Olde Piece -O- Crappe" 8_left10

Alas the #1 cylinder spits/sputters and backfires. There are no intake leaks, the valves are adjusted to within specs and I put a coil off my neighbors 23 hp intek... still spits/sputters and backfires. I gotta new head coming, hope that's it.

I was going to suggest head gasket because the inteks are notorious for blowing those, but a new head should come with a new gasket.
