I acquired a Rugg mower recently.  Came with an 8hp that didn't run, A frozen mower deck, missing body and other little things.  
Kinda looked like a rat rod so thats the direction I'm gona go.Rugg rat mower 20200810

Decided to use the original engine plate VS building my own.
I trimmed the sides down becouse I won't be using the raise and lower system. I'll be welding it. And being 1/8" thick, its plenty strong.
I found my jigsaw went soo much faster than my death wheel.Rugg rat mower 20200913

Went and removed the Allison differential. Going with a live axle. It will give me a smaller ring gear and disk brakes.
Still playing with the placement of the running boards. Next is ggona be welding in the engine and trans plate.Rugg rat mower 20200914

Decided to lower the frame some. I didn't like the stock height. Even got the engine/trans plate mounted.
And I mounted the wheels ill be using.

Little more progress.  Mocked up the engine and trans. Looks like I can move forward to the front end.Rugg rat mower 20200920

The axle came out of a China 49cc mini quad. Im taking the rear brakes, chain and chain ring from it. Im going to use the quads caliper and brake line. I ordered a master cylinder to use it with a pedal.
