As of today it has driven under it's own power. Problem one was the engine would not run so I had to free pull the carb and free up the fuel ball and replace the carb gaske. After that it started right up. I did have a little difificulty with it being underpowered at first, But I did learn why when I went to air up the back tires..... They are loaded!!!! Lol. So I had to walk beside it so it would go with the loaded tires, and sometimes me too if it was flat land lol. Anyway, that is the update.

YouTube don't like my video. But I got the machine out and tooled around on it for a few hundred feet. It moved me and the loaded rear tires nicely. Can't wait to get non loaded tires on it.

Looks like a plan :thumbs:
 
I was kinda hoping that you were going to do something like this:

Heath came in while I was watching that video and was mesmerized. He didn't move an inch the whole time it was playing.

Just back in from swapping the back wheels out for some 6-12s and took it for a spin. It is much happier and I feel that on pavement (the local tractor show has pavement) it will be fine in high range.

Casey, that's a hoot! You'll want hearing protection, but it'll get you there. Eventually.

Casey, that's a hoot! You'll want round fenders, maybe cut a washtub in half?


Thanks pal. :)

I'm going to need some parts donated for the completion of the look. Surprisingly, just a simple pair of round fenders would do the trick.
