New to the mower building been doing it for about a year and a half  wish i could say I had one mower completely done but thats just not the case. I tought myself lots of ways how things will not work out  but always trying to do New things. First build is still my favorite. I think  it's a 1978 JcPenny  I put a 1983 or 84 3 wheeler motor In it and did a 4 link front suspension. First actual triangulation 4 link i belive on a mower I could not find anything online and also first ever 4 link  and also %80 of parts were free or laying around and going to pull it apart and redo alot but same concept clean the body again and do a clear coat. It has high and low headlights which it came factory that way I just found much better headlights Always willing to learn new tips and tricks Snapch10Always willing to learn new tips and tricks 20211011

Welcome to ATLTF!  Not sure if @AllisKidD21 did 4 link or not.  It's been a while.  

Anyways!  Welcome!

Interesting steering system, do you have any other pictures of the steering?

My build off project will most likely have a somewhat radical steering system.

I do not but that is one thing I need to redo. It's a go kart rack and pinion and I have another knuckle in order to fit behind the gas tank and will need to do a slip shaft I tried my best to only cut the least amount of the original body as possible not happy about the seat lowering but will also be making that look better when I rebuild the whole thing and also going to put a swing arm under it before I tear it apart again and through the rebuild I will definitely take more photos and share. Definitely have more confidence now then I did when I started

Welcome to the ATLTF and cool tractor!  Sorry to burst your bubble but several guys have done 4 links, I've spent countless hours wandering around the archives and seen a few. Still very cool what you've done though!

If I had to take a guess I'm thinking your JC Penny is MTD built, mid to late 70's . It's very cool and unique I like it! I personally have a 1969 "Seven Hundred" and it's a tank!

@AllisKidD21 has actually done a wishbone setup AND Ford pickup style TTB setup too! He's our resident suspension aficionado but no so active these days.

I definitely wish I came across some of them to get a few ideas prior to building blind and having no idea what I was doing. Thank you I saved it from scrap just knew I wanted it and the only way I knew it was a JcPenny was because of a sticker on the steering wheel.

Hey you came up with the design yourself like alot of other guys had to do and that in itself is awesome!

And I was wrong, it's an old Murray! Always willing to learn new tips and tricks 6a364510

Awesome I my buddy has an old sears that looks very similar to that just different paint and needs alot of work I keep picking in him for not starting in it otherwise I might buy it from him I love the old round headlight look and older style I general. I got a allis chalmer and a simplicity also that I bought to be future projects. I belive they are late 60s early 70s om pretty sure the simplicity has a 6hp maybe didn't do alot of research on them yet want to rebuild the motor and put it back in it. Had points and generator if I I looked at it right I put a 14hp on it just to get it moving and it has high low gear and reverse then high low range.
