Only thing i see that might give you trouble is the 3/4" axle - being that far out and those big wheels itll bend pretty easy - could probably make some sort of sleeve( with a grease zerk to grease it up) with a gusset to the frame to support the axle ends.

Cool setup tho.

I think that exhaust looks good. My pipe is smaller than that coming out of the motor and runs perfect. You shouldn't have trouble with your setup.

That thing is getting awesomer. Love the proper hitch on the back too. Your buddy's is looking tough as well. I'm also a fan of keeping mowers built with mower parts, or custom built replacement parts for weak stock stuff, but DAMN I think the shocks and front end are a wicked setup!

I like the stance/shocks and the front setup - clean and strong , plenty of ground clearance. I think the ATV tractor hybrid mix looks wicked- i had some pics of a huffy tractor with ATV suspension/tires - looked awsome - i cant find em tho.....

I still need to get out and finish my agway - might just go ahead n do the 4x4 setup anyway , its just sitting there under the tarp still.

Too many projects, not enough time.....


$50 for a carb kit? Oh - youre in the great white north - i bot a carb kit for my murray for $20 from the local Cub cadet dealer around the corner.
