#Buildoff2022

I am going to enter my 4x4 mud mower build i will going to be building this with my grandfather, and i know ive already posted on it in a normal topic but id like to enter it into the competition, i started before i entered but i did not start it until about a month ago so i believe im in the safe zone, that being said this is what i plan to do: finish installing the rear steer craftsman rear end into the front end of the lt 1000, link it to the stock steering, make independent shifting for each transaxle, put ag tred mudding tires on both ends, make the gearing 1:1, fabricate skid plates for the transaxles, hop up the briggs and Stratton opposed twin and equip it with: arc billet aluminum flywheel and connecting rods, equipping 2x 28mm mikuni carburetors, adding copper gaskets to head and exhaust, straight  piping it, possibly super charging it. Other things ill do to the mower include: fabricating a custom hood or expansion on the old hood, adding some light bars, repaint to a metallic blue and black color scheme and adding stiffness to the frame as well as fabricating a bumper. I will post updates as they come onto the forum as well as my youtube channel. sorry it took a while to get the image got a little bussy and forgot about it.Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum Resize10

#Buildoff2022

okay, so my first attempt at the build-off scrapy ended up being too much work at one time, especially with school going on (not scraped still working on!). so gentleman I present to you a minty 71-wheel horse 8 with a 4-speed trans, the 8hp Kohler is shot.  my plan is simple and I decided what the heck let's get it in the build-off!
plans are
-swap 8hp for  14hp Kohler
-vintage cut pulling ags
-front tri rib tires
- gas pedal
-weight brackets
-paint?
-decals with the name HORSE N AROUND
-wheelie bars
-hitch
-kill switch
and I am sure I am missing some stuff.

Hello all! This is a continuation of my existing MTD White Build. This is the original thread.
Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum D6761e10
Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum Edf16210

Overview

The goal is to do a complete restoration of this tractor with some customizations applied. This includes:

-Engine refresh
-Transaxle rebuild
-New hydraulic lines
-New wiring harness
-tighten steering slop
-Fresh paint job done right (from bare steel)
-Front axle rebuild and 4 on 4 trailer hub conversion
-New tires (or at least new to me)
-Fit custom muffler and custom hood
-If possible a matching trailer done with larch planks

Background

I bought this tractor for $200 two years ago. It’s a model 992 MTD, and has a 20hp Vanguard Twin. Has a 2 barrel Nikki, and has a 35 cubic inch displacement. The transmission is an Eaton 11 mated to a Peerless 2500. This is a shaft-drive hydro that can reach upwards of 800 foot pounds of torque in low range.

Anything else I have to add will be listed later.

*name changed to offroad gasser*
Welp im building my 1993 Craftsman finnaly i have some before pics some stripped down pics and some pics of current progress. everything isnt even bolted together the motor needs a ton of work and ive got my hands full. And i havent decided on anything major yet im just seeing what can be done what cant and its kinda in a testing phase i need to make a better name for it too.

So basically i cut the frame rails off of the 93 and welded them to a newer chassis just to strengthen the frame and use the modern steering.I have a 25hp vtwin that was used to try to convert to side shaft it didnt end up having oil pressure so it has been almost unconverted. and is currently gonna be put back to almost stock just no govenor. i am considering making a longer intake manifold so i get more torque and put the air filter probably in the headlight bucket.

The goal for this tractor is to be not only a four wheeler but also a rally tractor and its gonna me just in general a multi sport tractor as in the title. Its gonna get big tires but be sorta stock hight with as much front axle flex as i can get and shocks on the front. Its a 5 speed i might swap it out for a 6 speed idk yet. I wanna be able to drive it on the road or through a corn field or over rocky terrain jump it etc. So its gonna get alot of frame bracing if i can to keep it from twisting and transaxle bracing too.

#Buildoff2022

Hey guys.
Heres my littl build off entry.
Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum Pxl_2010
(My sharpy died while writing out my entry).
If a different pic is required let me know. Hard to setup photo shoots in my garage. 

It's a cub cadet 100 Garden tractor (1963 / 1st gen)
Simple Kohler k241AS. 3 speed trans with reverse.
Shaft driven.

My main goal is to reduce the overall size by a 1ft at minimum upto about 3ft and make it a real mini machine for pulling, tugging and dragging.

Here's what I'm planning so far:
    Locking rear end with another sprocket/weld.Reduce the shaft size to accommodate shorter frame. Add weight panels along the bottom (hidden).Bore out cylinder 20/30 over.(if I can find a good machine shop).Custom cam grind.Move the steering from it's current location to over the top of the engine.Build a winch bracket and mount system for front and rear.3d print velocity stack/k&n air filter adapter.Widen the rear to accommodate some AG tires.Union jack flag on gb Green paint scheme.


If I have the funds maybe change it from coil pack points to a magneto ignition / speedunio build.

Looking forward to building something with all of you

#Buildoff2022

My Craftsman INDY that is a bit rough but it has a running Briggs 18HP oppy horizontal and there is a lot of space under that hood which I'll need.
I have NO other parts for it as yet but I will be buying the two key components ASAP, I do have other tractors/parts laying around but nothing really usable for this other than a bunch of rusty nuts-bolts-springs and things.
(SIDE NOTE: bar keepers friend toilet bowl cleaner eats rust off of stuff in a short time, way WAY faster than navel jelly)

My plan is to use this tractor as a platform to test some idea's I have wanted to try hence the name right arrow  E.P.O.C. aka: experimental proof of concept.

I'll yank out the transaxle and replace it with a TEE shaped right angle gearbox.
Starting from the engine, will be a torque convertor that will go into a simple 2 speed chain/sprocket trans with reverse using 12volt PTO clutches used on gas salt spreaders which allows sprockets to be bolted on easily.
The front axle will get tossed and I'll try to use a sears suburban front axle but I may have to make one.
The front axle will also get a TEE shaped right angle gearbox so yes 4wd, probably to much traction as all wheels will be engaged all the time.(is there ever really TO MUCH traction Rolling Eyes )

The steering will need to be beefed up a bit.

It will get some other tires but the sizes will stay pretty close to stock so it should still look pretty much the same as now albeit aggressive tires and maybe fresh paint to attract the girls as if I'm not enough on my own. Laughing
Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum Indytr10

This project will allow me to try making heavy duty front spindles that will have U-joints on a stock sears suburban front axle.
I want to see how much abuse those right angle gearboxes can take and if I can remove the through shaft and use a 1" shaft out to the full width I need as the rear axle.
The 12volt PTO clutches will most likely fail but it will be interesting to see what they can do, I may have a sized section of chain with master link and sprockets set up just in case it fails.







I hope I did this right.

#Buildoff2022

Simplicity Broadmoor 728 XC. The fender is just mocked up in this pic, not attached. What I’ve done so far is started the front axle and frame. The frame is probably about 20% done at the most. In case anyone is reading this and hasn’t seen the other 2 or 3 build threads that were started on this, the plan now is to build a low center of gravity machine for the TTC. Front suspension, single link wishbone setup, sears suburban 633a transaxle, sears suburban steering and close to a sears suburban wheelbase. I think we’re gonna be at about 44” and 42” wide? Trying to keep the weight down as much as possible. Might use some aluminum parts and my original plan was always to use fiberglass for the hood and rear fender. I’d still like to try that but we’ll see. So that’s about it, we’ll see how it goes! I might try to do video updates here and there which I really haven’t done in the past.

Okay fellas, I'm entering this old Bolens into the 2022 Build Off! For those of you that haven't seen the original posts of me bringing it back from the dead they can can be found here on the 1st and 2nd pages of the Non-Topic Tractor Talk thread to see how it went from being DOA to build worthy!

Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 20220168



Now for a little background on it... It's a 1969 Bolens "Husky" 1225 (Model 194) with a Eaton 10 Hydrostatic power unit and hydraulic lift. I got it as part of a $500 package deal with the Bolens snowcaster, rear tiller plus a few other goodies. It came with no engine, unknown hydro status, alot of previous repairs and it's obvious to me that it lived it's life being a workhorse on a farm.

Here's a screenshot from the ad that I kept.Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum Screen34


This is when I picked it up.
Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 20201211



and as it sits now, after a couple days of tinkering with it. Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 20220172




The engine is a 1977 Briggs and Stratton 16hp single (32ci) that I bought attached to an old wire burying machine (a Line Ward L-1) from my boss a couple years ago, he had it running a couple months before that but as of now I think this carburetor is doneski so I've ordered a new one in case I can't revive it (the main needle is seized in and I'm attempting to drill it out), would be good to have a spare regardless! The Line Ward itself is loaded with lots of usable steel, wiring and heavy duty linkages to use.

Well there it is! I'm excited to be a part of the build off this year, I wish all of us good luck and don't forget that the whole point of this is to HAVE FUN! I know I will be! Lol.

Pre Youtube:
Well got to get this posted up so I can make a video about joining the build off and invite others to join tomorrow Smile
Goal on the build is racing at 30+mph ultimately hoping to hit 40+ in 100ft at drags this summer. If you have not seen the Diesel Eater build on YouTube channel RCG Racing. We took that drag racing clearing 28mph in 100ft. That was with a very warn out and less then 4k RPM capable 10hp Diesel.
The engine for this build people claim will do 4600 RPM with just a governor delete. My goal is to break it down and find out. We have a cheap tachometer like I run on all my dragsters and we will monitor the progress as we convert from bone stock factory setup and each modification along the way.

#Buildoff2022

okay, I decided what the hay lets join the build off! I will first introduce you fellers to the rig, I call it SCRAPY, mostly because it's just scrap, worn, and beat on sears sheet metal.  the focus or idea for this one is to be more orientated towards rally but still a woods tractor. (I am gonna have to apologize in advance to mighty I just  realized my tractor kinda is based in the same direction as yours whoops.) anyways this build is going to get or already has-
custom frame - done
random peerless transaxle I found
14 hp Briggs
ratty sears sheet metal
either a craftsman cast front axle or straight axle not sure?
whatever tires I can find for cheap or free

the end goal for this is to get it done for little to no money at all. anyways here are the pics

This is my entry for the 2022 body odor contest:

I believe this is a LT 1000, and I am planning to make it into a UTV type thing by moving the axle back, stretching the frame, making a dump bed giving her the old pulley swap and using it to haul stuff around the farm. She will also be (hopefully) getting a new briggs & scrap iron oppy, and I guess the frame stretch is limited by how big of a belt I can get

Well heres my entry it will be a week or so before i show much more progress its got the 6 speed sorta half jank mounted its an old peerless from a craftsman or something. Im gonna attempt to use the stock vari drive and the plan is a 708cc predator but i may temporarily rebuild a vtwin intek motor i have thats practically brand new ive gotta pull the side cover and fix a few things and it would be ungoverned because it already had the governor removed. Ive gotta replace the front spindles because i was experimenting with custom ones that ultimately failed. And the front end is a replacement from an old 90s troy bilt so i think its a little wider but its definately heavier. Overall the tractors gonna be sorta a rally/street tractor eventually when i can get acsess to someone who can help me im gonna swap the gears in the transaxle for more speed ive seen it done and i think i could benifit from it. Also it seems like the MTD varidrives do better wheelies because of the vari drive so it might need wheelie bars with a monster engine.Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 20220111

So I started this project a long time ago and was going to build a drift mower out of it, but then I decided not to build it, but I am attempting to enter it is this years build off with a few new ideas! It is a 1998 Murray Wide Body LT, all I have done to it so far is yank the engine off, flip the front end over to make it sit lower, remove everything that has to do with the deck, and put a locked up spicer in it. (The dirt bike is there to donate any random parts that I might need from it.)Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 20220124

I intend to put a artic cat 50cc 2 stroke in it, build custom independent front suspension, swap out the lawn mower rear end for the artic cats rear end, drop the seat down into the body, stretch the hood, fab custom steering, give it a fresh paint job (silver with white lightning bolts), make the body wider, make a hand brake, get a gas tank and make a spot for it, lower it to 4 inches off the ground in the front and 6 in the back, and that is all I can think of right now.

#Buildoff2022

In memory of my 1942 GPW Ford Jeep that is sitting in my sister’s garage in Texas, I’m planning to build a tiny Jeep. I’ll probably never see the real Jeep again, so a little one will do. The original is in near stock condition with the OD green and numbers and all.

Since Jeeps have 4 tires that are all the same size, I want to use the 4 matching 20” turf savers I have. Most of the parts will come out of the junkyard behind the LT1000 or from my snowblower junkyard.

The LT1000 has an 18 HP Briggs and an MST206 transaxle. I will probably not touch the drive train until the body work is under control. I want to be able to move this thing under it’s own power as much as possible.

The tires:

Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum A1374010

Given the size of the tires and the fact that it won’t sit level with the 2 big tires on the front, I plan to stretch the frame slightly by moving the front axle out from under and to the front of the frame. This shouldn’t be too much of a chore, given that the axle mount is modular and can be easily removed.

So, out with the old plan and in with the new.

Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum D3b05810


I hope to come out of the build with something like this: (kinda sorta)

Topics tagged under buildoff2022 on All-Terrain Lawn Tractor Forum 3bc99b10

The plan has changed considerably. About the only thing remaining of the plan is shown in the new pic of the LT4000 and the MTD Square Body. And, the thing will be a kinda sorta jeep looking thing. 

I am off upload a new post detailing what’s up.

If you’re just now finding this build, Click this link to read through the build thus far.

Now, you may be wondering how and why I’m entering a preexisting build… well, because the Mountain Murray is moving up to stage 2… a HUGE stage for this build. I’m revisiting most things that were done during the 2019 BO and adding much MUCH more. I have parts for this that no one knows I have. As far as 50% goes, I’m not there yet. I am close, but not quite 50%. When I left off earlier this year, I had just finished reinforcing the frame to no end and designing and fabricating IFS. Since then all I’ve done is dropped the trans.

You also are probably wondering what the plan is for stage 2… so here we go:

-Fresh paint (Same scheme, maybe slightly different details)
-Full hydraulic brakes
-Offroad tires
-Lots and LOTS of lights
-Rock lights
-Front mud flaps
-Beefier skid plates
-Fresh wiring
-Fabricate new cargo rack
-Winch
-Relocate gas tank and battery
-Full trans service
-Refresh motor

That’s the rough outline of everything that will be done. Sounds simple enough, but it’s anything but simple when you start getting into the details. They’ll be more I’ll think of along the way too.

Anyway, I’m exited to start digging back into this thing and see just how much of a beast I can turn her into! As far as I know, I am the second entrant for 2022, so to @MightyRaze and all of the upcoming entrants, good luck and have fun! And with that, let the wrenching begin!

#Buildoff2022 #DirtyRat

I guess I will kick this thing off.  I don't know if I will be able to accomplish or finish what I would like... but it is a challenge and I want to take it.  I had hoped to build the Green Machine in the build-off but was uncertain if it would happen.  So here goes another idea I had.

My project is called "Dirty Rat"

My plan is to take this 1977 Sears Suburban Hydro, scab in the rear of a 1985 Murray GT with the locked Peerless 2300 from Kal.  I also plan on trying to lower it a bit if possible.  I'm calling it Dirty Rat, because my hope is for it to be an offroad trail riding rat rod sears.  Not sure of all the details at this time, but hope it goes well and can get something that I am thinking built out! Currently all I have is what I have. I do not have any parts planned or purchased for this yet.  It will be a journey in building.

Main source for parts:

Please note! 
**THE RULES HAVE UPDATED for 2022**





ATLTF 8th year Build-Off Competition Rules:

- Qualifying Builds -


1.) Must be a small, personal-transportation type vehicle, capable of carrying operator, and not more than one additional passenger.


2.) Must be self-propelled.


3.) Must be powered by an OPE (Outdoor Power Equipment) type engine. Generally: one to four (YES 4) cylinders, 2 or 4 stroke, gasoline or diesel, air cooled, water cooled, horizontal or vertical crankshaft, and derived from: lawn mowers, leaf blowers, lawn/yard/garden tractors, pressure washers, portable generators, tillers, cement mixers, weed-eaters, leaf mulchers/ vacuums, water/ trash pumps, 4-wheelers, motorcycles, etc. Additionally, more than one qualifying engine may be used.


...3.1) Electric powered machines will be considered by-basis, so long it complies with all other rules.


4.) No automobile, truck, SUV, etc. chassis or engines allowed. No ATV chassis, or "Compact Tractor" chassis from larger homestead+ tractors allowed. Passable examples are: Lawn tractor, yard tractor, garden tractor and mini chassis’, stock or modified. Custom-built chassis are allowed provided the end result will be resemblant of a lawn or garden tractor chassis in appearance. Specifically, ladder, tunnel, or pan-style. No space frames, or frames made primarily from tubing that are resemblant to go karts, rock crawlers/ bouncers, etc.  (Tube skeletons for bracing and exoskeletons are permitted upon approval.  Must "wrap" a portion of the tractor or strengthen lawn tractor frame. Not replace a portion of the tractor.)  


5.) Must run on any number of wheels, tracks, skis, or any combination of these, limited by the following constraint: A minimum of 3 points of contact must be made with the ground, a minimum of two if vehicle is "tracked". Points of contact are defined as wheels, tracks, or skis. Wheels cannot be configured in an inline pattern similar to a "cycle".


6.) Sheet-metal and bodywork is open; however, the end result must be resemblant of a tractor in some aspect. Micro-cars, cycles, rock crawlers/ bouncers, space bodies, etc. are not permitted.


7.) Must be "complete" by deadline date. For our purposes, "complete" means: Starts, runs and drives under its own power. Throttle must be installed and operable remotely (without operator touching engine). Kill switch must be installed and operable without operator touching engine. Engine must start with a switch of some type or be pull-start. Braking system must be installed and functional. Steering system must be installed and functional. The purpose of this rule is not only to define completeness for the contest, but to help ensure safety. Paint and related aesthetic touches are not mandatory to qualify as "complete" but may affect voting. For clarification, "Remote" specifically means "The ability to operate without touching engine".


8.) Must NOT be more than 50% completed prior to the official start date. Previously completed builds can be used as long as the new build changes the build by more than 50% from the previous completion.  Not just a teardown and reassemble.  (These builds will be closely monitored) Lightly modified builds for the contest will not qualify. As part of qualification, contest entrants will post a picture of the major parts source(s), including a sign showing the commencement date and code word. Completeness will be defined by your write-up of what is to be done and by seeing your parts in photos.


9.) Entry must be built by the entrant. A team of more than one can enter and build a machine. Those instances, the team would have to share or split winnings should they win.  No contracting "hiring out" parts of the entry to be "built" by someone else.  It is OK, to purchase "over the counter parts" for your entry.


Entries and finalized builds are screened by the administration and we reserve the right to decline entries/ finalized builds if we feel they are not observant or compliant to the rules as stated above.

Probation will not be enforced 2022! Have Fun! wrote:

Entrants MUST update their thread at least monthly detailing progress, with either write-ups, videos and/or photos.

Criteria for Probation:

Upon completion, builder MUST post a video of completed build, consisting of a walk-around and operation to demonstrate function and capabilities. The video must be hosted on a site that will allow the video to be shared in your post, such as YouTube. Builders should also make a post saying that build is completed, or risk build not qualifying. If for some reason you are not able to shoot or post this video, you MUST contact a forum administrator to closely scrutinize your build to determine eligibility BEFORE the competition closes.
