......Man, pretty dirty in here. Think I just saw rat go by (talking about the thread, lol.), anyway, the MM has been performing... Uuhh, um, kind of, decent. Getting a few reoccurring gremlins like randomly throwing the belt (happened again tonight. Luckily not in the creek while I had my good (not waterproof) boots on.), and electrical connectors coming undone. Gonna have to buy a crimper. Anyway, I'm not satisfied with the double pulley clutch, so when I take the body off to reinforce the frame, I'm gonna go back to a single pulley. No matter what I do it seems the belt wants to come off, and if it comes off on a single pulley, well, it's a whole lot easier to put it back on. Anyway, I'm gonna do a list of what I like and don't like...

I do like:
-The mud flaps... Did it on my first build and it worked flawless. GREAT idea Doc.
-The rack... Has already come in handy many times. Spent a whole day with a 7 year old on the back just driving around and refilling it with gas. I love it.
-The gas pedal... This is my first build with a gas pedal and I gotta say, it sure makes shifting a whole lot easier.
-The locker... This is also my first locker. Love how it almost never gets stuck. Can't wait for real tires!
-The lights... Being able to see 360 degrees is always a must for me, so.

I don't like:
-The hand brake... It's right in the way of my knee. I haven't accidentally kicked it on yet, but it's just annoying. Also, it's hard to press the clutch, hold the steering wheel, shifter, and brake at the same time...
-The tires... The tires suck. Don't get me wrong, they make sliding as easy as eating Cheetos (because I'm eating them right now), but they are literally bald. NO traction whatsoever.
-The new clutch... The new clutch worked out better on the red Murray. It's just not what this machine needs.

Now, since the time the BO thread was locked, I've managed to roll it on a gravel road while doing donuts... Yeah, I pulled a Richie. No damage though. Just a rough spot on the steering wheel and front corner of the hood.

As for the engine and tranny, well, I gave up on those. Just gonna run 'em til they blow. The trans leaks like crazy, I stripped 2 bolts in the case (which are right beside each other not allowing the cases to seal.), the input needle bearings are gone now, (should've greased it before I put it in.), I just don't care. I have another set if cases. The engine is very shot. It makes this machine the ultimate worst point A to B and work vehicle. On about 3rd startup of the day it won't start. It just sits there as if it needed gas, so I choke it, and it floods. Makes no sense to me. Also, with the broken compression release, the pull start is useless. It's killing the solenoid and starter too. Constantly having to recharge the battery. Hope I can make everything last till Haspin. The front end is already starting to die... I'm thinking it's wheel bushings.

Anyway, it still works okay, just gotta work out some bugs.

Alright guys, been a while. The MM's still kicking around...

So, everything is about the same. I blew out the front tire during my final video for the BO, and now I blew the rear one, so new tires are in the near future. Been messing with it here and there. I did put new tow hooks on it recently... Put one of the old ones in the back and put U-hooks in the front. Oh, and I put a 6" pulley on the front now instead of the deck drive pulley. It's fast enough to do 2nd gear donuts now! I've tightened some bolts, checked the frame for cracks (I didn't find any), greased the input shaft since the needle bearings are actually fine, adjusted the valves to no clearance at all... It helped the compression a bit, and some other things here and there...

The skid pla er, um... I mean, oil pan...

Heh, bad isn't it.

And just for fun...

I know, yes it's a WD knock off.

Also, I got the 'new' engine...

Murraymountain's Mountain Murray - Page 2 P1140126

I did completely disassemble it, no pics though. BUT, I did get pics of this $40 crap...

The rings were shot, the combustion chamber was full of clay, the carb hole is full of rust/clay, the crankcase was full of water/coffee sludge oil, the oil filter had drinkable water only, no oil in it. It's a mess. At least I was gonna port and polish it anyway. I might have to get a 10 over piston or something because it definitely needs to be honed.

Anyway, the MM2.0 is not gonna be built the way I've been saying... The Mountain Murray is taking it's place. It's still being built, but not the way this one will. Anyways, I have some awesome mods planned for this thing...
