Are you going to part it out to get the drives for the Cat trackster?

I did buy it for the drive motors and 23 hp v-twin , pump , valves , etc.

  But I will have to wait and see until I see if I can even get it running .

   Here is a picture of the 39 year old Sears Gas grill after I tweaked it just a bit.

  It moves much nicer now :dancingbanana:

Yes,

   Todays little shop project was to build a stand for the lift table ramps . Now I can atually use the ramps for a extra little work bench when in the raised position. With a tiny workshop like mine every bit helps. :thumbs:

I love the new lift !!   , it will lift 1000 lbs.

  Todays shop project is cleaning the z-trak for the first time and checking it all over. Clean gas tank, new filter , check valve clearance , new battery , etc. Also clean out mouse nest, ha,ha.

Don't bother cleaning out the mouse nest, just start it up and burn it out :firejumper: :thumbs:
