Oh yes. Do you have the stock double pulley clutch? That bar would normally go underneath the backside of the clutch where the raised part is and then a piece of curved steel bolts to the other side keeping it in place.... That's why I didn't do the hydro swap on The Green Machine. Needed too many parts to make the hydro work.

i've got the whole system we used the donor murray as a grass cutter for a couple yrs, it had the double pulley clutch, i took it off, you don't need a clutch on a hydro and i'm just going to run the belt directly from the engine to the transaxle if i use the clutch it will just be as a tensioner with good spring

well illinois is on lock down, the governor has issued a stay at home order, no non essential travel allowed, you can go to the grocery store, the gas station and for medical needs, but all non essential businesses are to be shut down until at least april 7th, this really sucks, i won't be able to get anything i need for the build until these places reopen, but i believe i have the material for the stacks, my brother brought home part of an old swingset the other day and i think i can cut the tubing from it to make my stacks instead of buying the conduit, i will still need some but not as much as i did

i mounted up the 2nd of the tires i planned to use, and no matter what it wouldn't take a bead, i was hoping i made a mistake and grabbed the wrong tire since this one has weather cracking, but my hopes are dashed, this is the tire i needed to use, but no matter what it will not take air and bead up, so i'll have to buy a tube, $15 vs $50 for a new tire, i found it wasn't the weather cracking that caused the issue, it's a chunk taken out of the sealing surface of the bead, i must have fouled up when mounting the tire and ripped the inch long gash in it, fortunately it doesn't hurt the tire at all, just makes it where it won't hold air, anyway here's a pic with the tires mounted although the left one is un-inflated atm

i am having to take about a half inch or so out of the floor to fit them, the one on the right is done, but the one on the left isn't because i don't have any more cut off disks for the angle grinder, and i messed up, i forgot to tell my brother i wanted the swing set pole for this, he had a friend help him load the truck and they took the scrap metal to the scrap yard and it went with it, i still need to measure for the belt, mount the pedal and get the control set up done for the hydro, then i can flip it and start on the top side

well i can't say i've gotten anything done at all since the last post, my brother and i do small engine repair on the side to earn extra money and we were suddenly swamped with repair work, 4 riders 2 pushers and a tiller, and that has taken precedence over personal projects, so basically i'm updating to keep within the rules, hopefully i'll be able to get something done soon, but i've got plenty of time so no big deal if i don't get make any progress in the next couple weeks
