I know. Sad thing… I can see who and when members log on. There are about 20-30 members that log in weekly but never say anything anymore. There are a couple admins that haven’t logged in for over a year. At this rate why bother with build offs. No fun with just one or two people.
Sorry that the build didn’t work out for you. I agree that forum traffic has slowed down pretty drastically these past couple months.
Speaking of the admins, Did something happen to Doc’s account? I have seen him post on YouTube but he’s not been on here in quite a while.

So the itch hasn't died on this, but I am at full stop. I would like to find a single cylendar 14-18hp Briggs for this build. I would go as low as 12, but all the mower scrappers are out again now that mow season is coming to a close. Really hard to find anything reasonably priced. Best I found in my area is 150 for a whole tractor with a good motor or 300 for an engine alone. Yikes... considering I got this tractor for $30. Too bad an oppy wouldn't fit under the hood. I have a couple of those.
The obvious solution is to make the hood fit the engine.
Take care of the back first.
LOL, the opposed is WAY taller than the Vtwin.
I'm definitely taking care of the back first. Today is the first day that I was able to sit instead of stand and lay down. I know laying down is a big no no, but I had to find a way to relax. I just wish I could heal a bit faster. I'm not going to complain much. I'm not a spring chicken anymore.
