I would guess good, I put a smaller steering wheel on my tracked go kart, it was much better, gives you more room and you hands have to travel less. That being said, you also have less leverage, but with the steering ratio of a mower it should be fine. Project Black Horse - Page 2 2731072446

I've done absolutely nothing with this as I've turned to some shop modifications so I can have some heat.     Hope to be back on this next week.    Nice little surprise came in the mail today 😀

Seeing as how you're still basically at the start of this build maybe you'd like to consider holding up on building for the month and enter it into the Build Off in January? Just food for thought.


My All Terrain Tractors:
- "The WarHorse" ~ 1984 Sears Craftsman LT(V)11 (MTD Built) (Romping in Progress!)
- Roper "Trailblazer" ~ 1986 Roper LT110CR (Trailblazing in Progress!)
- The "Mud Duck" ~ 1969 Bolens 1225 Hydro (2022 Build Off 2nd place!)
- The "Silver Bullet" ~ 1984 Sears Craftsman LT(V)11 (MTD Built) (Part 1)
- The "Silver Bullet" (Take 2) ~ 2024 Build Off entry (Work in progress)
- Roper "Offroadster" ~ 1979 Roper T4328 (Romping in Progress!)
- 1973 Massey Ferguson MF12 ~ (Sold to a good home)

Ive thought about it. Especially because I've had delays. Lol. It's still pretty much a stock gt. Truthfully I should at least get it running and driving before I do anything.

Side note: FedEx showed up

@BairleaFarm what size are the front? Where did you get them and how much? If you don't mind me asking

I've got a new build in the works and I don't have any front tires in stock

I get everything for everything off Amazon. The fronts were 80 shipped and rears were about 180 shipped. Everyone wants top dollar for used ones around here. Got tired of looking and decided just to get new.

Paints failed and tires don't appear to mount in a way that looks good.    🤔  this project is falling apart.  Project Black Horse - Page 2 20231213

Looks good with the new grips! Those rear tires I hear are pretty stiff, but should still be better than the AGs you had on the other tractor.

Looks good! I hear ya on the rims, I’ve had those problems before.

Tractor supply has a sand blasting gun for 30 bucks, maybe that would help with adhesion? You wouldn’t need to strip all the old paint, just abrade it good.

I didn't notice until they got back from the tire shop but the rears are mismatched. One has the valve stem on the backside one has it on the front. Guy said there was a lot of rust in one of the wheels so I assume the other rusted out at some point.

Apparently I have no concept of size. Idler are bigger than expected and drive pulley was measured outside to outside so my 5/8 belts won't work. I could switch to 1/2" Not sure the bigger than I thought idler will work either. 🤔
