Hey guys, this is my first post here so bear with me.

So I got these two Murray widebodys for free in a package deal. One had a blown 12.5 hp b&s and the other had a seized 15.5 hp b&s. We replaced the blown 12.5 with a new one and sold it. But on the other hand, the 15.5 happend to be deckless, and it turns out that it was a mouse nest between the coil
and the flywheel that caused it to seize. $50 later, it runs and drives (ish). So now it's to be a mud mower. Thinking about entering it into the build-off.

Here's some pics of it torn down (i didn't get any pics of it before i started to work on it. Sorry.)...


Murraymountain's Mountain Murray 20190214
Murraymountain's Mountain Murray 20190215
Murraymountain's Mountain Murray 20190213

Here's the plan...

-New orange paint

-Reinforced frame, hood, and steering column

-New ATV tires

-Recoil pull start

-Snorkel

-Gas pedal

-LED headlights & tail lights

-Brush gaurd

-Locked transmission

-Pulley swap

-Catch can

-Suspension

-Exhaust

-Hand brake

-Rear gaurd/rack

And a few other small things.


So I think the plan is going to be a $500 budget, enter it in the build-off, run it in my towns Christmas parade and sell it for a profit. Hopefully this will be a fun build.

Next step, find a place to get welding done.

Basically you can have an admin@"MightyRaze" move your thread to the builoff entry section in the 2019 build off section. You’re missing a sign with the password in your pictures but you’re pretty much good to go.

I’d say if you realistically have the time and the budget to build it by the end of the contest then do it!

What is a catch can for?

Nice rig!  Not sure you need a catch can unless the rings are bad or the pcv is messed up or something.

I've heard about how catch cans aren't really needed but I can smell a little bit of oil burning in the exhaust on the mower I run (the one in the profile picture) and its kind of annoying considering it has a brand new head gasket. I've never tried one yet so if it doesn't work then it's in the trash it goes.

As for the build off it all depends on the money made from selling riding mowers this year and how to get it to wherever the build off takes place. I'll see if I can get the pics.

the build off is not in a certain place it is on this forum. as i understand you post your pics of your progress and finished product here and others on here judge you. that's the way i understand it.

If thats how it works then I don't know why I can't enter it, we'll see.

Alright so if I can't fit the catch can into the budget then it's out of the plan. Besides I'm expecting the budget to knock off more than just a catch can.

Alright so I am entering into the build-off this year. Just need to know if I can use any password or if it needs to be a specific one? Once I know I can finish the sign and post the pic.

Nice! It needs to be this year's password, goulash. That shows the admins that you didn't just build this 6 months ago and keep the pics.

Go to the page
https://www.atltf.com/t5975-ready-set-build-entry-instructions-and-password-here

Follow the steps.  You have them just need to post in the right place for the build off.

After you do that, you might want to go over 
https://www.atltf.com/t5968-2019-build-off-rules-and-guidelines

To make sure you follow guideliness.  This thread can go idle while you post to the build off.

Alright. I'll try to do that now. By the way we are getting some bad weather here which will probably cause the internet to go out so we may not have an update for a while.

We only ask that you update your build off thread at least once a month.  That's 9 posts minimum start to finish if you started at open.
