Have any of you ever designed, fabricated, or made anything out of a old garden tractor other that what it was designed for?
I have a old International LB single cylinder engine that is very heavy and a royal pain to move around by myself . I decided to build a carrier for this engine from a old Craftsman garden tractor that has had nearly every usable part removed and used on something else. Only thing left on it was the 4 tires , front suspension and rear axle.
I fabricated a trailer tongue, like on a hay wagon to the front end, mounted that International engine on its back.
The little rig pulls and steers very good.
Now I can pull the engine to my sawmill hook it to my slab saw with ease..
I would like to hear some of your ideas.. inventions out of junk .. (That's what my kids call it ) LOL..
