keep it where u have it. just make a shroud around the clutch out of 1/4in steel incase it goes boom.

I have to build a few brackets out of alum for the clutch pivot and pillow blocks. And eventually a clutch shield and a u-joint shield just in case stuff goes awry.
I have the rest of my plans for my alum pulling hitch done today too. So i should be able to get a few things done tomorrow after work.
The rest of the week and probably the next 2 weeks are gonna be hectic at work so it'll prob be april before i make any good progress on it again.

I mean the clutch i bought has crazy spring pressure so all of that pressure is pushed against the input shaft going into the trans. Obviously the stock trans worked this way as well but with alot less spring pressure. Should i be worried about having to hold in the clutch for a long time like when the parking brake is set and the motor is running?

Really the only thing there is the pinion and the final drive gear that's really about it as far as I remember I haven't had my transmission apart for awhile.

ok so I need some help here. I am in dire need of a radiator for this thing. I have about 15"w x 12"T x 2" thick to work with and a 1" hose inlet/outlet. I cant for the life of me find one unless I spend $2-300 for them. I really think one out of a 4 wheeler or another garden tractor would fit but nobody ever lists the dimensions of them or the hose size.
I was thinking about not running one but after a quick 1 min run in the garage tonight the motor is hot as heck and i'm not even working the motor.

This is the same one I run. Theres also a lot of the pullers who use this. Its super lightweight and matched up with a high velocity fan you'll be able to keep the temps down.
Marked that radiator. Might make use of one of those myself. This radiator's fan uses only 40 watts & at 12VDC that is less than 3 1/2 amps.

Well worth the money dan. Its very lightweight I think maybe not even 5 pounds so its easy on the front end. You just have to work around the radiator outlets and be creative with them.

thank you very much! I still think it is going to be a tight fit and even not be able to run the fan but I will try. It should be here this week.

ok since you were so quick to come up with a rad for me. here's a harder one...
I found a digital data logger when I first started messing around with this pulling project last fall. It was sold by one of the "normal" gt pulling suppliers. It had multi channel capabilities and would read a tach signal up to something like 12,000 rpm as well as log the others as well coolant temp oil pressure egt's ect. and it was something like $400.00
but I can't find it anymore. I thought I had saved the link but none of the bookmarks I have in my pulling folder come up with anything.
It was a small black box with I think just a single 5 digit readout for the tach and maybe some programmable warning lights for everything else.
Not that it will make it onto the tractor right now but I would like to integrate it as soon as funds allow.
Thanks in advance!
