Congrats on getting it home. The word SOLID comes to mind when viewing your photographs. Can't wait to see what you make of this machine.

That looks like a very heavy duty unit! I imagine that it will handle whatever you throw at it! Will be watching to see what becomes of it!

Glad you managed to get it home, so when will you start the build thread? Will you be inviting Ray to stay with you for the duration of the rebuild? :bigrofl:

I have been thinking the same thing what now,I know it won't be an easy project,i set the engine on it today and it does not look like it is what it needs so it will be for sale,will be taking measurements for some fiberglass parts and already have a plan for a fiberglass truck bed for the back

Great Idea on the fiberglass bed. So what engine do you need, and is that Kohler off of a Cub Cadet?

Looks well made. If you get another brake master cylinder, you could set up turning brakes on it. Kind of hard to tell what the frame is made from. I like your plans for the fiberglass. Have fun with it!

I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of 'playing with your pics'. I will try to edit your original post with them.


It worked, first time I have tried this. Woohoo!
