#Buildoff2024

Howdy Folks I figured it's time to enter the build off after 4 years. We have out selves a massive 1998 Yard-Man 999 Garden Tractor. She's a beautiful 836lb with a nice long 54" wheel base and 45" stance. Currently rolling on 27x9.50x15s and 18x7.50x8s. 22hp kohler command under the hood with Eaton trans. Hydraulic deck lift and a three point lift in the rear. She's a big girl. I figured she would be the perfect recovery rig for broken down rigs in the woods. Maybe a good rock Crawler who knows.

Plans for her is a complete tear down all the way to the frame. Gotta get control of that rust somehow. I have another pair of rims to make it a dually but I'd rather shove some 31x10x15 sxs tires under her. Brand new 22x11x8 kenda k284 fronts on the way. Go big or go home. Ive got a 29hp Big Block Vanguard that I may drop in if I can easily make a larger drive shaft adapter. If you that's gonna suck. That motor has a much bigger out put shaft when it comes to girth. Dual exhaust out the rear probably or short stacks. Winch bumper is a must. Hood rack Maybe or a small rear rack for storage.  Tree kickers are a must. Bigger seat and springs. Wanna build like a little crane on the back. Hubs on the front with different rims. There a 1" spindles on it but still wanna brace them. I'm sure there's more but will see. Good luck to the rest of yall. I know I've got a late start but this should be fun.

You got yourself a mighty fine rig there bud! Wink

Quick tip if you want to upgrade your front wheels. The OEM bushings don’t fit right in those wheels and won’t spin on the shaft. Can’t get bearings in those rims sadly, but if you get some rims off a 200 series John Deere they drop right on, you’ll need a couple spacers but I just used some 1” lock collars and 2 washers on the inside and they fit perfectly. Feel free to send a PM if you want to talk 990 MTDs!

Also, the manual calls for 20 weight motor oil for the transaxle. They don’t make SAE20 anymore, but it’s completely acceptable to use standard tractor fluid in the rear end. It’s an exact viscosity match and Eaton thinks it’s ok.
