I am going to enter my 4x4 mud mower build i will going to be building this with my grandfather, and i know ive already posted on it in a normal topic but id like to enter it into the competition, i started before i entered but i did not start it until about a month ago so i believe im in the safe zone, that being said this is what i plan to do: finish installing the rear steer craftsman rear end into the front end of the lt 1000, link it to the stock steering, make independent shifting for each transaxle, put ag tred mudding tires on both ends, make the gearing 1:1, fabricate skid plates for the transaxles, hop up the briggs and Stratton opposed twin and equip it with: arc billet aluminum flywheel and connecting rods, equipping 2x 28mm mikuni carburetors, adding copper gaskets to head and exhaust, straight  piping it, possibly super charging it. Other things ill do to the mower include: fabricating a custom hood or expansion on the old hood, adding some light bars, repaint to a metallic blue and black color scheme and adding stiffness to the frame as well as fabricating a bumper. I will post updates as they come onto the forum as well as my youtube channel. sorry it took a while to get the image got a little bussy and forgot about it.[22 BO] "Death Wish" 4x4 lt 1000 mud mower Resize10

After some thought I'm not going to be supercharging it as I would have to add an intercooler and other various safety measures that would cost me an additional 900$. However that being said it will still have the dual carb setup and other performance goodies. I also purchased some 3” pulleys for the front and rear transaxle then quickly realized after i got home that they would cause some serious belt slipping issues, so next time i'm back in town i'll be returning them and seeing if i can get some 6” pulleys then i will do the “holly pulley” mod to them. I have also decided that ill run kenda bearclaws on the mower (thanks to RCG video he posted about them)

Sorry its been so long had to wait for parts to arrive. That being said all of the stage one parts have shown up, basically just stuff to make it a mud mower. Ive decided to do 1 to 1 pulley ratio with the pulleys being 6 in all the way around. Earlier this morning i did the holly pulley mod to them and went with 8, 1/4 holes on each side of each pulley. I made a little jig to hole the face of the pulley straight while i drilled away.  [22 BO] "Death Wish" 4x4 lt 1000 mud mower Image011

got all the wiring done, unfortunately the previous owner buchured the old wiring so I've completely rewired it and chose to wire in a fuse panel so everything is on its own circuit, in addition to that I've also chose to run the gen 1 craftsman wiring as that's what connects into the motor and i like the ignition switch better, and I've left one of the safety switches in the wiring as now its hooked up to the break light so I have a functional brake light.

Very nice!  Little word of caution.  Trust me, I know from experience.  Make sure you wire your break light where they do not work when the key is off.  If you set the parking brake...

Very Happy
