LOL, yeah looks ok from 10 ft.  Don't look too close...  :-)

First incarnation I wasn't too happy with, even more so when I busted my leg on the corner.

So, I cut it a little shorter.

Nah, I don't feel bad.  I just keep sending and scratch it again.  Just have to wait a while to paint it again, man this paint shortage now is something.  Glad I had prepped before it was all gone.

I will say things are probably slow down real quick as I am struggling on a setup for a new gas pedal,  I seem to have lost the pedal I use to have on it.    I'll figure something out.

I did get some LED replacement bulbs for the headlights.

They are pretty dang bright!

Started fiddling with exhaust ideas.  I'm going to have to do it in one take.  I got the last conduit from the Home Depot, and Lowes is out!

I think things are at a slow down... My back has reached max capacity without giving out.  I did resolve an issue with the brake lights.  For some odd reason I tied it to battery power and not switch power.  Now I can set the parking brake without running the battery down.  LOL

Danceparty

Exhaust is complete....

I also robbed the winch from Kal.  The winch that use to be on this tractor is on Red.

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 2 1310

Things I would like to continue working on... 

  • Some kind of hood latch or hood shut safety.
  • Horn (probably rob from Kal as well
  • Replace the led light bar switch I robbed for Bowser.  LOL
  • Foot throttle.


I was fast and furious on this thing, I need a break.

That is a good looking manifold! What size (conduit?) is it?

3/4.  Same as the nipple size OD.  I think the collector part is about 2.5 or 3".

I bet she sounds wild! I use conduit to make small engine exhaust too, so easy to work with and fairly durable.

Yeah, it is pretty easy to work with. I have a bender for the 3/4 so that helps a lot too!

Got some hood latches installed!  No hood hopping should I ever get it on trail!

Far enough forward not to be hit by my knee and not cover up the grab points.

Right arm! Looks good, sounds good nice work! What bulbs are you running (specifically) I like those. If you weren't so far away I could've clamped and wound that spring for you so you could use the door until the springs are replaced. Notice I said springs plural, always change them in pairs.

Thanks, yeah I'm replacing both.  No telling how long they have been there.  10 yrs? 20yrs? Since the house was built in '77?

Little bit of bling...

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 2 Img_2512

Starting my first try at a new gas pedal.  Going to use an FNR pedal for a start.  Going to build a base and some bolts with holes to draw the cable and spring return.

I'll have it fixed tomorrow.  Yeah I made the sticker.  Not sure if it is going to work out.  Not sure If I stuck it while metal was moist still from cleaning or what.  This one isn't sticking well.  I have other sticker paper that is a pain to remove.  I use to have some that was removeable and it was good.  I can't find that one anymore.  I am giving this one a go.  So far I am only about 50% happy with it.

That sux...

So 1st run for a foot throttle was a fail.   I'll need to clear my head and step back.  What I have looks great, but not enough throw on the foot side.  Top side didn't align up at all.

I'm going to take a break for a while and recollect my thoughts.

How's about a pic? We'll get the idea pool filled! Lol. When you say not enough throw on the pedal side do you mean not enough travel for your liking or not enough to engage full throttle?

Yeah, not enough travel for the cable on the foot.  That's an easy reposition fix.  Top side.  I hoped to use the opposite side throttle cable mount.  Obviously, I am going to have to go my own route for that one.

A bellcrank can multiply input vs output and is easy to make, just a thought.
