I plan to make a shift lock for 2nd and 3rd this week. The clutch is aluminum with two new pressure plates and drive shaft. I still need to get a spring. Its a pain in the butt not having any suppliers in Canada for puller parts.

With the engine your using you may want to get a 10 puck steel disc clutch, like the one im using. and a yellow spring.

I am a late comer to this thread but I have enjoyed reading it front to back. WOW. Sir you have mad skills and quite the workshop. I cant help buy believe that your tenacity and talent will be rewarded when you hook this gem up to the sled. And oh by the way that DB hood is smoking awesome.

Thanks Nxt2doc but a pretty basic build compared to many of them. Today the diff was installed and engine put in place so I can finalize the clutch and drive shaft. Basically need to cut the drive shaft to length and still waiting on the heavy spring for the clutch. Put the order in for the tires today and it hurt the pocket book once again. I will have to wait a few weeks before I can purchase the aluminum rims. Once I have the new rims and tires on I will go about making some fenders.

My rear tires came in they are True Power 26x12x12 should work well. Also made my adjustable hitch today. Its made with two 7/8 threaded rods. Started on my weight racks. The one I made for the back will hold 140 lbs and I hope to tuck 240 under and infront of diff. I am using 10 Lb cast weights that slide onto 1 inch shaft. Will still need to add more weight but need to look it over a bit first.

Hope they work for you. Ive never once seen those tru powers hook up at all. Hopefully they will for you. Another good place to put weight is under the seat. Either buy a weight box already made from either nichols or midwest or can make your own. On some of my gas tractors were the battery would be, i turn it into a weight box. I think it can hold up to 200 pounds depending on what weights i put under there.

If you can cut the tires, that would be really good. you don't what the weight on those big lugs on the tires. You want to sharpen them so when they are just sitting there digging in. other wise the will just hydroplane on the dirt.

Thanks for the good info. I have cut a lot of dirt bike tires in the past but nothing of this size but the same principles. I will wait until they are mounted then have at them... I do have a few good pics of what they should look like.

Went to Tractor supply today and picked up some fenders. With some cutting and a bit of welding I was able to get the round look I wanted. I hope my measurement are good for the bigger tires. Going to paint them today.

Fenders look good, but that seat is going to hurt your ass.

I was thinking of  making a vinyl cushion with a plywood base to go on there Chris.  Maybe something that srews on from under so it dont slip around. Most likely in red and black to match the hood decals. :rocker2:
