So once upon a time there was a lonely Hyrdo Murray widebody. Here is Pic while he as relatively stock

Then he got some atv tires. Then my friend got an idear " What if I spicer swapped it?"

It also ran a 17.5 oppy for a time but she lost the governor and grenaded in one ride... Then she tried to get an 18.5 Briggs single. But he gave up on that one and stuffed the factory 14.5 in it. Project Scraptor Img_4411

It also is running a throttle pedal hooked to the governor.

This is how she sits now I will continue to update as he makes progress.

Looks like you got the basics down.  Got any hills you guys ride?  If so, a locked trans may be needed.  Otherwise no real worry.  I'd check out  @Doc Sprocket 's Fugazi video's or Fearless's old video's now for his mud murray.

Should be plethora of ideas just in those two playlists alone.

Maybe my Bowser topic?

They are some hills nothing that's not a trail though. He does have plans to oil fill and put bearings in it so maybe He will lock it at the same time! He also wants some new fronts aswell. Also some lights.

If you are using the stock headlight's, look into LED bulb replacements. The best looking modified headlights (personally) for one of those murray lt's was @diddie's build-off rig from last year.

I will tell him to look at those but it is missing the left side one. (Don't know if the pic showed it.)

Hallo!
Scraptor finally got worked on! So, my friend was being dumb and stripped the steering gear out when working on it to prep for a ride, but it got repaired and it's all better now! lol!

He did make a little trail side tool kit and he zip tied it all together to his little ATC rack.
Project Scraptor Img_4510

He had to fix his brakes as he lost em while test riding with the new steering gear, and he wanted to show his brake set up as this tractor has been converted from hydro to geared. (Spicer 4360)
Project Scraptor Img_4511

He then replaced the battery ground cable as he broke the original, so he put a Lt4000 craftsman ground cable. Bonus is that they were thicker wire then the Murray's original cable.
Just a small update but progress is progress!

Hallo!
More stuff to see on Putt Putt's thread and M.U.T.T's thread.
Project Scraptor 20230826

Scraptor handled the ride fine the only problem he had was with is belt slip in the water. The ride mostly consisted of riding around in the river water next to shore. Besides that everything went great!

Unfortunately the Spicer 4360 wont shift into gear. Kinda like it's locked up the shift lever won't budge from neutral. My friend currently has other projects going on so this guy is on the back burner for now or indefinitely, my friend hasn't decided what to do with it yet. Mainly depends on if he finds another transaxle for it. Just wondering if anyone know what the problem could be here. Like shift forks or the detent ball? If it is a easy fix it has an even higher chance of seeing the trails again! Thank you all in advance. Smile

My friends tractor did the same thing but with some violent rocking I was able to jostle it loose.Best thing to do is open it up and find out, what's the worst that can happen!? Lol.
