OOO ILL START!!! im way too exited because im bored atm. so i wanna reengineer the MTD cvt to be more complicated because im curious how a go kart 30 series cvt would effect a mtd leaving stock pullies front and rear and putting a pully on bottom (to engine) and on top a 30 series cvt from a go kart which would mean two speed high low automatic with foot clutch and reverse too me that sounds like it would be really fast. also a mst206 with that setup would be perfect for drag racing. giving take off torque and plenty of top end being a automatic two speed with 6 gears

Well I “may” have an idea for another, albeit quick and not terribly interesting build.


So I’m big into ice fishing, and despite being flatfooted as a jackrabbit I can pull my sled fine. But I am impatient and like to get out on the water quick. So my thought was that there are several rear-engine riders for sale in my area fairly cheap. I think I may build an ice buggy, something like this:

Nice and small and light, and since its a mower I doubt it would need to be registered. Which costs an arm and a leg in NY.

Could probably do some sort of half track thing too and cruise the snow banks that we get around here.

A little more traction on the rear, and that might work.

@Rustbucket Garage it's cool to see a fellow ice fisherman in here ! I actually built a rig similar to that using a sears snowblower with tracks and arctic cat kitty cat skis on a toro 910.Non-topic Tractor Talk. 20190110

to do this

Use sand paddle ATV tires on the rear and you'll be golden!

Nice rig and nice perch! Nice to see another fellow that dares to brave the cold. Smile

@MightyRaze if I go through with this then I'd definitely try something for traction. I think I'd get a set of old tires, cut off the sidewalls and add studs to the treads and maybe some grousers. Probably would try and stay away from extra weight, wouldn't want to sink in.

If nothing else it would be neat to mount a potato cannon to the front and give it a camo paint job.

"These are the fastest tanks in the European Theater, forwards or backwards. We like to feel can get out of trouble quicker than we got into it."

Bonus points if you can name the movie! Very Happy

Bigger question... would the teeth on the starter be compatible with the Tecumseh?

ya like mighty said I would make sure the teeth on the starter would be compatible with the ring gear on the flywheel on the tecumusche also correct spacing for it to engage and disengage properly.

another dumb build idea i might actually do... i have a tufftorque hydro and an mtd diff and axle shafts i wanna do chain drive from the hydro to the axle shafts and support the axle shafts with pillow block bearings and make it go fast because then stock pulllys and tensioners and foot drive for the hydro puts less stress on the hydro so you can go faster and it would be smoother too
