I don't think it's to big. I'm sure how hard, or how expensive, it would be to add a pull start, if it's even possible.

Is something wrong with the electric start?

I'm not quite sure what you mean about my opinion on throttle/gas pedals. Do you have any pics of how you might rig it up?

Ok so here are a couple of pics ImageUploadedByTapatalk1399333765.631916.jpg
The spring is to make it so the engine will go back to idling after the lever is released. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1399333814.031718.jpg
And here is a link to some vids of it Rollin Coal LOL, let me know what ya'll think :) https://www.icloud.c.../#A15ON9t3iHE1j (and let me know if those vids work...)

I think it's a good idea. It would make it easier to drive! It looks like you've done a good job! Is your throttle pedal independent from the brake pedal?

 

Sorry if I act unfamiliar with this type of throttle setup, I don't no if I have personally seen it done before, though I'm sure others have and have had good success with it. I think it looks like a good setup! I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

 

Do you like the way it operates with the throttle like that?

Sounds like it runs good! Did you come up with the term "Rollin Coal"?

 

Do you have any videos of it in action?

Thanks, it runs pretty good for a 37 year old tractor. I did not come up with that term, if you type "Rollin Coal" into youtube then you will see tons of trucks (diesel of course) pouring black smoke (aka Coal) out of the exhaust. My WH dosent quite pour coal out as some trucks to but in my book thats considered rolling a little coal. And thats on a gas engine usually only diesels can roll coal.

Sorry i dont have any videos of it in action, but i will try to get some video next time i take it around the yard or through the woods.
