I've got a wheel horse, got a craftsman for the girlfriend, and a Murray widebody for her son. The mst trans is out to het locked and his graffic showed up. I figured I'd share it...

Yeah, Stretch and Dan got tired of me breaking their mowers, so they gave me the wheel horse, now know as gimphorse. Were going out to haspin this weekend if anyone is close and wants to hit some trails! Ill try to get some other pics up of the mowers and stuff.

Sweet man! You’ll figure these things out easy. I still need to post the video of the deuce from this summer haha.

I had mentioned maybe being able to come to haspin this weekend, but I had totally overlooked my moms wedding so we are out of town for that haha. We will have to get together sometime though for a weekend trip

They look pretty cool. Someone needs to make a clear lexan hood and put lights under it.

Well the girlfriend's craftsman made it through another weekend at haspin. She managed to unlock the transaxle, not sure how that happened and we had issues with the steering box. I'm gonna have to swap that out for something better.

Considering the safety aspect, they are awesome, the only issue ive had is they are so bright, they have to be behind you.

I've been looking into rack and pinions from golf carts. Some of them are pretty short and only about $60 on amazon. Without tie rod ends ect that is.

So how much gear oil are you putting in your mst205s? Ive replaced some seals and locked it up, then put it together dry. Now I need to fill it.

MST 16 oz./473 ml Oil
Oil: SAE E.P. 80W90 Oil

If you are pulley swapped be sure you vent the case.  I was able to self tap one of these in the fill hole on my old MST.  Be sure you don't go in too far or it will interfere with shifting.  Then run a tube up under the seat with a fuel filter on the end.  Should be good.

Lots of people do like mighty said and run it up under the seat. When I do mine I’m going to run it up to the engine intake to totally seal it like a PCV system on the engine.

Just tap a fitting into the airbox same as the trans, and run your line along the frame. I didn’t get time to before haspin last year, but that’s my plan

If things play out well, were going to take the mowers to Durhamtown plantation next week. I need to fix the craftsman steering again, i got a cast front axle to put in, but have no time to fab up mounts for it! Such a pain to have nice things but unable to use them.

I'd like to put a different exhaust on, but like everything else, no time to build one

I had never heard of it, but quick look on google images and it looks like an awesome place to ride. Always loved the look of that red clay, just don’t wear white!! Lmao

Have fun guys! Take lots of video

Well, dont bother going to durhamtown! They didn't want us on the trails with the mowers, what a waste. That was the 11th time I had been there, never with a mower though. I'm fairly certain I won't be back, even for the military vehicle rally I was there for. That place is the worst for gouging you price wise and not giving you any service.

Ah dang, that sucks. Although it kinda sounds like you didn't miss out on much if the place is run the way you say.
