Nice looking machine!  Why are you getting a smaller belt?  Does your model not have the sliding-engine belt adjustments?

I have it adjusted all the way out and the belt is still about an inch too long.

Your tractor looks great! Looks like you have the same motor(Predator) I have on my Super 575. It starts easy and pulls good. I've enjoyed watching you progress on your project.

When you get the bugs out plowing is very enjoyable. Your RH tire needs to be reversed so the cleats won't clog in the furrow.

Is that one of the Harbor Frieght engines that were on sale for $100?

Keep up the good work.

It is the engine that was $100 at harbor freight, and I got it for $90 with a coupon. Amigatec your engine is going to have a new carburetor put in it, and will most likely be used on a project I'm looking to buy next. Thank all you guys for your help and support in this project, I'm glad I can be on a forum where all the guys look out for each other and has a family like feel to it. It's nice to see there are still people like this in the world!
