@TheJakeOfJake

I had a 9 inch engine pulley when I had the hotrod craftsman.  I wouldn't recommend it for a mud build.  I got pretty close to 30ish.  I'm going to shoot for a 6 or 7 on my build next year.

Stock trans pulley.

1:1 is typically a good setup on most mowers.

I had to guess... between 10-15?  There is a calculator out there somewhere I think.  I haven't found it yet.

I forgot to mention I had about 30" wheels on the rear when I got those speeds I mentioned in the post a few posts back.

In the MightyRaze Garage Research dept  GT 18 mud mower build - Page 2 1f602 , I put a 7 inch on a craftsman GT engine with the stock trans pulley 25 inch tires.

I got about 11mph at around 3000-3200 RPM. (throttle cable stuck, didn't get to 3600) Also gave me an excuse to see if the transaxle will leak on my next project.  

Tractor type specimen used for test.

Horizontal 18hp Briggs
Roper 633a HI/LO trans.

So im at a standstill currently. I am still a kid, and my parents dont have a truck. i live in an hoa neigborhood, so i cant buy i beater truck and park it in the driveway or the street(both garage spaces have cars) so i am only riding it in the yard,(im only on 3/4 of an acre).

So if i locked it, it would tear up the yard, But i have no way to get it to and from the offroad park, which i really want to do.

Maybe you could rent a trailer and get a hitch for one of the cars. Wouldn’t be cheap but it would work in a pinch.

The tractor fits in my moms minivan if i take the middle seats out, i have to take the seat and steering wheel off. The only problem is that the tractor would be muddy, so id have to get a tarp that would cover the whole thing, if i could even convince her.

When they transport monster trucks, to get the width and height requirements to spec they will remove the tires and tims and swap on a set of cheap tires. Maybe you could do this instead of removing the steering wheel and seat, remove the front and/or rear tires and slide the whole tractor in on a dolly. Just a thought I had.

Puller. Use a breaker bar though and lots of penetrating oil, or if they are really stuck, mix up 50/50 automatic transmission fluid and acetone. Let it soak for a day or two, use a three jaw puller and go slow. Be careful if you decide to use an impact, better to resort to heat than to have to find another hub. Good luck, and hope the rust welding isn’t as much of a problem down there for you southern folk Smile
