#Buildoff2024

Here is my 2024 submission of a Custom 10E I found sitting in one of my buddies sheds. I got this mower last year and the motor was locked up so I took a break to work on some other projects.  Since then I have collected a good amount of random parts from swap meets including a 2wd honda atv front suspension, utv steering rack, cub 3 speed gear box with internal brake, a hi and lo range unit for it, and at the heart of the tractor will be a 23.5hp Kohler command pro with a built in 40amp alternator.

I'd love to get this done by October but certainly have a lot of custom fabrication to sort out with changing the frame to accommodate the cub gear box and significantly much larger engine.  No idea how the clutch system works and clearly missing some pieces like a flywheel but will figure it out as I go.

Got some time this weekend to work on Ickx and started it off by removing the old gear box which was not as simple as just unbolting it like I thought.  After about an hour of wrestling with it I finally got it down and if anyone would like it feel free to reach out, no charge.  From what I can tell everything works on it.

I put the dash, hood, and grill temporarily back on to make sure I still had a mower after the teardown and to get measurements for the Kohler.  Then started the process of figuring out if the Cub gear box is going to fit or if extensive modification if going to be needed.  To my surprise it perfectly slide in and lined up with two of the bolt holes, heck even my old wheels will bolt right up once I get the correct bolts for it.  The gear lever hole is going to require a bit of cutting but nothing to major to make that fit.

Next stages are to tap out some threads in the gear box for mounting because they are all gone, and then determine what angle everything needs to be in to line up and work correctly.
