Base is 1.5x1.5 1/8th angle. 2 1/4 bolts though footboard holes. 3/4o.d. x 3/8 I.d x1 inch bushing welded to angle. 3/8 rod cut and welded into a z like pattern. Nuts welded to angle and z pedal to pull the cable. Pedal cover that use to be on red placed on pedal. Spring I found in a bucket for return.

Looks like a nice pedal, is it controlable? I had a throttle that would just shove your foot back from acceleration resulting in a surging driving pattern, yours looks like it wouldn't have that problem...

It looks and sounds great Mighty, nice work!

Guess no Super Clean for me eh?! Lol. That's okay I prefer Spray Nine anyhow. What's interesting is they could mail a voucher anywhere for basically free....

Nice, the dark shots at the start of the video were pretty cool, I was feeling like the opening shots were a wee bit long, that or there needed to be a more substantial music track... Anyhow, great job on the tractor and the video, when are you starting your second BO project? Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 11 1098998679

I'm going to make another later an actual closeout of the B/O entry.  Not the end of the tractor.  I'm pretty pleased with it.  The 2300 in this shifts a bit different than the other one I have. Little harder to shift on the fly, if at all.  LOL It also wines a bit.

By shifting on the fly do you mean bump shifting? Like shifting with out the clutch or with the clutch?

Shfting with the clutch, but still rolling. Like you can do with a geared transaxle where your shift pattern is inline R-N-1-2-3-4-5(-6). Non "H" pattern trans like a older wheel horse, peerless 2300, 600, roper 633a, etc.

My other one I can shift most of the time without a gear grind. This one not so much. I still have to feel it out for the sweet spot.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with running the 7" engine and 4" trans pulleys. Takes a second for it to wind down.

Got me some new switches.  Ditched the boring horn and light switch to something a little newer.

Those look sharp I like them! I have the same horn button in black/red in The Warhorse!

The Dirty Rat is looking great!

Maybe try double clutching? (Ie clutch, shift to neutral, clutch, shift to gear)

Might help to cut down on the grinding some.

That is kind of what I am doing now.  I have a couple ideas, then again maybe just need some belt break-in time.

That's what I was about to say, double clutching, but also I hear guys talk about "matching" where you match the RPM's from gear to gear, you can probably look up a video on how to drive a unsychronised trans

I decided to go ahead with changing the rear wheels to lugs.  I bought some old 2300 hubs the other day on evilbay.  We'll see how they work out!

Hubs are ready to install!  Just waiting for the 8inch wheels with the 5 on 4.5 due in Friday.  They will need painted to be ready for install.

These guys may be old school 3 lug, but they are STOUT!  I'm not worried about them.  Super thick and strong.

Installed the hubs and swapped the tires over to the 5 lug rims.  I also brough in the tires about 1/2 inch.

Little struggle getting the tire off the old rim on the first one, but the second was pretty easy.   I have 7psi in the tires, but I think I need to bring that down to 5psi.  They are a little round right now.  Wheel size is the same as the others.

I had about a 4 hour delay to do the second tire as we were tornado warned 2 times with another that didn't go warn until after it passed us.

This one just passed to the north of us.  It was close to my wife's parents.  Another was close to my parents as well.  About 10 minutes later I could see power flashes that way due to it being much darker.  If you look close enough just over the building in the distance, you can see a tiny finger hanging down.

Here is the second one that came right over the house.  A third came even closer but was too weak.

Luckily none touched down near the house.  The closest damage was about 10 miles away.

Glad y’all are ok. I’d certainly be biting my nails if I saw one of those twisters!

New rims look great!

I grew up in tornado alley and am glad I am not there now. Glad you are all safe.

Took a little stroll today and I think either the clutch or idler pulley may need replaced.  There is a pulley not happy somewhere.  Will need to take care of that soon.  I was thinking of putting the 4 on 4 hubs on the front but decided not to do that.  I have the original wheels pretty dialed.   That and they are actually easier to remove than the 4 lugs if needed.

Did some measuring.

Front axle 36" wide.
Rear axle 41"wide.
Length 76" long.

Top speed to date is 25mph / 40.2kph

Pulley screaming at you is it? That not a bad top end and feels even faster when you're that close to the ground eh!?

Metric system *phfft* Lame, even we don't use it! Lol

Uhhh, I think here you kinda are indoctrinated with the metric system, I always have to convert MPH to KPH But, yeah, I have the same "screaming pulley" problem, thought it was the trans before, it's quieter with the new one, but still screams, are you sure your input bearings are OK?
