Whenever you put a live line to the coil it blows it up. I learned that the hard way. I don't care what kind of ignition it is, just that it doesn't use a lawn mower key.

Well, my mom needed the only car with a hitch on it so the Murray didn't make it to the car wash. Now I have to go wash it myself... Mad

i've seen them used before, and thinking back they did have a separate kill switch, running either a toggle or tethered kill switch would solve the issue, and could act as additional security, sorry i didn't intend to give bad information, or rather in this case incomplete information

Not a problem. I don't need it right now anyway. Something for the future.

Game of Chicken

The Wheelie

Here she is. There will be more to come!

So I know your wondering why in the world I'd do what I did in the first vid. Well, NC clay is very slippery and it was rather fun trying not to lose control so I challenged my brother to see who could get the best style points without flipping. Sometimes I'm stupid. LOL!!!

The links are giving a 404 error.  To share a link from Google Photos you have to hit the share button, then copy link, and that's the link you need to post.

Ugh, I was afraid of that. Let me see What I can do...

Did this work?

How 'bout this?

I know it ain't the biggest, but it's the best the ol' hydro can do.

It's going downhill. The MM20 is spending the night in the shed. Had to sell the battery with the Lowe's and I have no idea when I can get a new battery, so I jumped it. Started right up, and then died. Completely dead after that, nothing at all. And the last time it did this I tried to start it with a rope and it ripped it right off the top of the engine. I think it's flooded. Plus the worsening hydro leak, worn belt, and the front wheels look off, it's time for some more work and upgrades. Ugh! It's just been one of those days.

Well, I put a new battery in 'er the other day, and it still didn't run. The fuel filter is full of crap so I'm assuming the carb is clogged. And I haven't been in the garage in 3 days so I have no idea what the leak looks like right now.

Oh yeah of course it was a dare what else LOL.



Well it turned out to be a clogged fuel filter, didn't even have to clean the carb. Runs like it never even happened.

Ya know, I  should probably wash the underside next time I whip the pressure washer out. Had to sort out some belt issues, and since it was at that angle, I couldn't help but notice the nastiness underneath. The mud is literally peeling off.                         Scream it's shedding it's skin!

So I don't know if I ever said anything but I'm planning a mudding trip, and I need to get the tractors ready. So tomorrow, I have to finish changing the MM20's belt, replace the clutch return spring with a stronger one, adjust the clutch, put the pull start back on, and another little something I have planned. I'm want to take ALL the Murrays, a friends Murray (needs a motor swap and a deck drop), and maybe a GT6000.

Got the belt changed! It's actually a little bit faster. It flies considering it's got a hydro! And I also did this...

Murray Widebody build: "Red" - Page 2 P1110228

Put it right underneath the tail light so you can see Ol' Glory in the night!

And the pull start will be needing some welding so that won't be done 'til the end of the week!
