Just posting progress on my 2nd upgrade to my mtd mud mower. Got a good bit of the new drive-in setup into it tonight. Plenty of work ahead but I'm getting there.Mud mower 2.0 Kimg0212

Nice are going to just be using a cvt drive pulley with a v belt or are you going to be using a hole cvt and cvt belt?

Been a bit since I updated. I've got the cvt clutch installed sorry no pics. Weather here has been against me and I'm focusing on building my new garage on the nice weather days. I'm waiting on a longer cvt belt the one I went with is just short of disengaging fully. Hopefully we will get some nice enough weather I can post some pics progress from where I left off.

Well I've made little progress in the past 2 and a half months. The weather here has been nothing but rain with very little breaks in between and as a result of need due to weather and not having one I've been focused on finishing out a garage/shed which again due to the weather is taking forever.Mud mower 2.0 Kimg0215

Very nice! I like the way you designed the baffles I bet it has a nice sound to it. I am growing tired of the straight pipe on my oppy because it's so loud and back fires so much. I will probably be making a muffler on my own as well.

That's a sweet muffler. I'd love to hear how it sounds.

It should be deep and throaty without being overly loud. I got the bake design from a flowmaster 40 series muffler.

It's finally done! Took me forever to make it happen but here it is! Swapped my carb for a 34mm flat slide carb and fine tuned the new comet clutch type vari drive and took her for a quick test spin today. She's ready to rideMud mower 2.0 Kimg0519
