I haven't got it in yet, but the pix look like it could be 4x as big around.  I will need a minor mod to the pedal for connection.

I really like that brake and bumper setup, actually I really like all the work you’ve done on this thing lately, looking forward to seeing it on the trail one day

Thank you @Creepycrawler, to bad it's a thousand miles to Ohio for me. We use to come up every year to visit my wife's grandmother till she passed on two years ago. Use to drive by @Stretch44875 and @TheRainbowBoxer  stomping grounds when we were up. Never knew.  My wife  and I would like to vacation around Haspin time with a few days stop at Haspin this year. That is dependant upon my wife's parents getting back from Utah for a memorial as we take care of their animals and chickens etc.

One more minor mod.  Due to the bigger tires, grabbing the fender is no longer an option.

Put some fender handles on.

Looking great Mighty. I like your brake. I've never had good luck with cables on brakes, i prefer a solid linkage as that's unlikely to break or mess up. Although I'm stopping 500lb tanks and not lighter Murrays, lol. You've really improved a lot as a fabricator in the time you've been on here. Good job on that.

Thanks @RichieRichOverdrive , I will have to say the ol widebody is starting to get a bit heavy. That's the main reason for the additional brake. Cool

@MightyRaze
do you have the links for all the parts you used for your steering?
and what page did you post the majority of your brake and steering setup at??

Far as steering, I used my existing steering wheel and steering shaft,

I used a universal u joint shaft from existing shaft

https://www.bmikarts.com/Universal-U-Joint-for-CUV_p_1455.html

to a yerfdog rack and pinion.  (They have been out of stock since last summer)

https://www.bmikarts.com/Rack-Pinion-with-Rod-Ends-for-Yerf-Dog-Spiderbox-Go-Karts_p_1456.html

I modified the ends of that, shortened and replaced with heim joints, much like

https://www.bmikarts.com/Aircraft-Female-Tie-Rod-End-38-24-_p_1480.html

Far as brakes go, current brake cable that I am hooking up.

https://www.bmikarts.com/Brake-Cable--38-_p_2981.html

(apparently the 1/2 barrel and 2 1/4 bolts are not included, I have a service ticket in with them on that.)

I also bought a 4 1/2 brake drum brake band for my 1" axle from Ebay.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/323984636289 (current link, may die when out of stock)

Most everything else I build it custom for myself.


EDIT: I get a lot of my metals from Tractor Supply.

New cable installed. Appears to be working fine. Will test either tomorrow or this weekend if not raining.

She's working, needs adjustment now that it is stretched a little bit. With both brakes, she'll lock up from top speed. Woot!

Looking at Li'l Red in the garage, I realized a quick mod that is LOOOONNGG overdue. I finally made a pull start. Haven't got a chance to try it yet.

Best mod you can do, especially when you're too poor to buy good batteries like me. They're all I ever use. Make sure you pull it to the compression stroke before you give it a rip so it doesn't try to rip your arm off Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 11 1098998679

I haven't bought a new battery in nearly 5 years.  The one in Red is 5 years old.  I can still get about 30 seconds of cranking out of it between either running or charging. (sometimes I forget to turn the gas on  Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 11 2429134702).  Ones on both suburbans turn 5 later this year.  One on my blue craftsman mower is 6 years, I added some more distilled water to it once.  It still turns over for about 15 seconds before dying for another charge.  I have 2 others that are on a shelf that need to be used as a core charge.  One is from 2012 and the other is from 1996.  LOL

Your asking, what about Kal and Patriot...  Kal's battery is in Thor, and Patriot's is in Red.  Red's old one is the 2012.

EDIT:  Correction, one from Kal is in the 9N Ford.

Since you have so many tractors it sounds like you need 1 or 2 quick change batteries that you could move from rig to rig or a handy jump pack

The power pack I got for 3rd in 2018 has gotten it's rounds many times.  Jumps that old 9N like nobody's business.

We haven't really had any information put up at this time for Build-Off prizes as this year is a bit sketchy due to the Rona.  Last year, Some members donated prizes as well as myself for the build-off.

Here is the pull start,

Put Red to work today dragging limbs and brush.

Then later I saw the neighbor has his zero turn stuck in about 10 inches of mud.  Ran over and pulled him out too.

Friendly neighborhood mightyraze, rescuing neighbors from certain...er, mud or something.

It's weird to me seeing how straight and clean everything is on this mower, like just the top of the engine, the shroud is so shiny and unbeaten like any of mine.
