Ok now that the buildoff is done I plan on continuing this build. She has been running perfect but there are add on's and changes I will make.

Been doing a dirt bike build off so havent had much time to continue building the Murray but i did add a cheap low profile head unit. Only $16 and its real easy to pull out when I do a good cleaning to the machine. No speaker yet but i will be looking for a small marine speaker i can hide somewhere. Anyways im starting to get alot of electrical and i plan to also make this a generator so my question for you guys is whats the best alternator to use for these small tractors?

Pretty cool. Do you think vibration will be an issue? I saw a really tiny alternator from a kubota engine online. (I think it was from a kubota) You could try searching for Tiny alternator or small kubota alternator. That might not put out enough amps for you though if you want to power a bunch of stuff or charge other batteries off it ect. You can find pretty much any smaller car alternator and just adapt the pulley to whatever you want to use. On my simplicity I used an alternator off a ford explorer and used a v belt pulley from a sears suburban starter generator. You could also take the alt pulley off and just weld a v belt pulley to it if you can't find something to fit the shaft. Try to find one that's internally regulated. Most are these days anyway.

Ill check out that alternator and not to worried about vibration. Yes its actually Bluetooth, aux and i do believe usb.

The front is about to get changes. Going with bigger tires and to do that looks like the exhaust will have to change.
