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

Ooooo out of the box thought.  I may keep that in mind when I go at it again.

OK, I went out and looked.  I can fix the foot pedal issue with a simple trim of metal to give a little more pivot.  -Easy

Top side.  I think I will need to make a new cable connect point on the intake manifold.  That will fix the angle issue.

Need to come in from the angle in red.  Just need to figure out where to place my spring because my heat shield is in the way.

Awesome job on the new build so far Mighty, that exhaust header looks super slick!

Thanks AK!  I've finally got good enough welding that I don't instantly blow a hole in the tube.  LOL

I think I see what you're doing there, keeping the hand throttle with foot pedal override ya?

Yep!  I tend to use the foot for a little "boost" but mostly use the dash.

Not able to put the return spring from the throttle directly to the heatshield by drilling a small hole? Your eyelet could still be in play if you put it on the spring before the spring on the throttle linkage, can't (well shouldn't) pop off then especially if you put a stop on the end of the spring

That's pretty much what I did.  Yeah, I said I would step away and give it a rest, but I couldn't sleep with thoughts in my head.  Foot throttle is now connected.  

Danceparty

I kept it simple...  Created a spring mount on the heat shield.

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2515

Drilled one new hole about 3/4 inch center to center higher.
MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2517

Now it is the exact same travel as the governor arm itself.  No need for a stopper as the floorboard will stop but, the extension doesn't go any further.
MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2516

Petal is high enough to rest my foot under while cruzing with the dash throttle.  Not too high to mash it when needed.  Also not too much in the way to get tangled up on.

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2518

All that is left is zip tie the cable so it does not get tangled in the frame.


This is my next item up for work.  I will let this one go till Friday or Saturday.

HAHA.... yeah I use them on everything.  I got my 3/8ths, 5/16's, 1/4's... I try to keep them in stock!.

I actually have a pic of the last time I was adding to my stock.

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2415

I go through a lot of 1/4 stock.

I was sweeping up the floor this morning and realized, I will have a green stain now in the garage for a good time to come.  Thanks to The Green Machine.

MightyRaze's The Green Machine - Page 3 Img_2520

After sweeping, I felt really good in the back so I tackled the horns at lunch.  Pretty quick install.

Also... looks like I have a new tractor "FREE" about to drop in my lap.

Yeah getting there!  I need to fix a belt issue.  I think my belt is about 1 inch way too long.  Also need 1 guide.  What is so cool, with the issues I have, it still hasn't dropped the belt.

This one is the most planned and thought out tractor I have built.  I even have had parts stored up for it SEVERAL months.

HAHA.... yeah.  Can't quite put my finger on where I use to see it all the time..  ...MUTT...  I got the pair for $97 .  Now where I got them is $120 per tire.

Little video reveal for The Green Machine!




  • I will be using an 18hp Briggs and Stratton Opposed twin running 90' clockwise from the factory location.  This will give a non-twist belt configuration for the tractor. 
  • The Roper 122419X (craftsman ver 633a) will be locked.  
  • The front axle will be moved forward 8-10 inches. 
  • New rack and pinion steering.
  • Repainted
  • Finish rear bumper?
  • Add toolbox
  • New tires
  • New LED light upgrades
  • New exhaust (since old was was taken for kal then chopped up)
  • Brake lights? Again?
  • Completely rewired.
  • 4 on 4 hubs on front axle


Things re-used:

  • Front bumper and winch
  • Rear hitch mount created for patriot





Looks like I got everything on my list checked!!!

TGM is now in the shed with Red and Bowser... I'm going to need to do my fall shed cleanout soon.  Also get the dog area ready for the outside dogs.  Well, just one of the outside dogs.  The other one will be coming in unless it gets really cold, then they both come into the garage.

At one time I tried and I ran it over the steering.  You are limited to a smaller pulley and it may rub.  Didn't affect my clutch.

with the angle my belt will enter a bigger pully will work on mine so should i just add a tensioner for the bottom so it goes around the steering?
