So i went to haspin with my 60$ clapped out beater everything was wrong with it but and ran smooth and was the only running riding tractor i could beat on. Those who where there got to see the pos. Now i got some mods done to it after it dropped a valve and ruined the motor so i pulled the motor

I installed a newer style mower axle which is wider and stronger and has a tougher steering rod and new balljoints. I got the bumper welded at my grandfathers who welded for csx for many years. And its a SOLID bumper. I installed a non busted dash that i reinforced with metal and a peice of wood in the middle of the dash for mounting electronics and wiring. Now the dash doesnt flex and has very low chances of beaking like the old one did. I got a new non bent or broken front fascia which im mounting led pods on and im gonna build a engine cage soon hopefully. And also i need to find a new seat or repair the old one since its pan is broken. I also made a gas pedal from a deck part from some random mower a valve sping and a bolt and it looks neat and works nice. And the biggest update, i managed to trade a free wheel horse for a free huskee for a free dixon + craftsman with a 25hp Vtwin briggs. And that briggs is now on my yard machines and has a gas pedal to the normal throttle using the throttle cable. The craftsman was hydro  Rally rat Machine 1f611  so no loss. Its gonna get a newer used engine and gonna be my girlfreinds mower. Ill get some good pictures of my upgrades when its done raining

Hydros aren’t as bad as everybody say they are. Yes, you can’t go 90 miles an hour but you can rock back and forth without clutching five bajillion times. Keep them clean and cool and they do fine. The GT units can pull good too, mine has dragged 3/4 ton of topsoil up my hilly driveway no complaints, but hey, that’s low gear.

(Ignore the previous rambling, I do that sometimes. LOL)

Not to jack the thread, but epoxy that to some steel plate to make a coat hanger and that would look cool. Somebody would probably pay good $$$ for that too.

So yeah I wouldn’t get rid of it
