Check out a few vids I uploaded from today we did a little tuning on the Ford and got it weighed and balanced fairly well.

Regular unleaded fuel, absolutely nothing done other than a fine tune up . There is not a single thing on it that is not completelystock. She does run very well .

Mine (14hp Kohler) has a weird knock ever sence I rebuilt it. Dosn't seem to affect performance, and is only noticable without a load applied. I like how yours sound. And yes, it is fun to get the kids involved!

IDK, never been to a pull.

He was very happy! The tractor weighed 1000# with the driver . And we had 1800# + on the boat so we are getting there, the biggest thing we are trying to do is get the weight balanced and maximize traction oh and have it so the little fella can just stomp it and go!
Today will be tire testing and hopefully have a second tractor to try
And we are going to see what happens with a 20" high hitch.... that is what will be allowed at the red apple farm pull...
Sounds a bit high for a gt but were game. ;) :)

Way cool on , I am guessing the mod to the pedal tractor was to give it more torque :). See where that went. Thanks for shareing.

Had a set back one of the at tires was bad and blew out the sidewall when we went to air it up. So yesterday was a day of rest. We need to order up a couple of sets of tires as we have 2 tractors we can pull, the other is that ole' Moto-Mower with a hot little 8 HP Kohler on it. Nice thing with it is its light and needs over 200# added to get it up to 800#.
