Just left the junkyard… found my old trusty hydro out of Ole Blue.

So, my daughter really likes riding the tractors.  I have a tractor I was building for her but I think the  Trans is going out, plus it is a FNR.  I am thinking of scrapping that and another one like it.  Maybe find another Murray Widebody.  One like Fearless's or Doc's.  Build that up for her instead.  I already have a locked MST 206 for it.  I am really contemplating it.  I really enjoy having Red fixed.  Don't get me wrong, Kal is a tank, but Red is much more fun.    If I see one for the right price, I may do that.  Right now I see a couple for 100.  Another one like mine for 50 in my area.

My 8hp died....  something broke inside.  I was thinking about putting an opposed on it.

Are hornets off topic? I went out to check under the engine shroud on the Rat Rod and then strip out the wiring harness. There was ANOTHER hornet nest under the dash. I just reached in, grabbed it and threw it. Got 3 stings on one finger. That finger is FAT now. I did get the work done but used a lot of brake clean shooting down hornets. That is fun, should be an olympic sport. Kinda spendy though... Shocked

That looks like an ‘instant go kart kit’ contraption to me.

Yeah, I say ungoverned opt and extra fast pulley swap. That would be cool to try out, make that Deere run like they say it will! Wink

when your 8hp is shot and locked... you go bigger.

direct bolt down and pully install.  now for fuel, throttle cable, battery, and choke.

I'm a throttle cable shy of firing this thing up. My throttle cable for testing busted on me. I hope I found a good carb.  One I put in is an old one I pulled out of a bucket.  Not sure the old carb from Red went yet.  I'll cross that bridge when I get on it.

Carb was junk.... found Red's old carb, it was junk.  Acted the same on this engine as it did on Red's engine.  No power.  I found another carb in a bag in a bucket that I kept.  It was missing parts.  I took the 1st junk carb and the last one and made a decent good carb.  Got it dialed in and running well.  No bogging now either when the deck is engaged.  My longer throttle cable I think comes in tomorrow.  Found another temp one to work for now.
