Hi Guys & Gals i am collecting steel & parts for a small Garden Tractor i want to build soon ,
wondering if any 1 has some pic's of simple chassis's & such for idea's & front end design's ?
Is there any thing else i might need ?
would 8 HP engine be big enough ? stationery type horizontal preferred maybe ?
cable or hydrolic brakes on diff ? got the option ?
& options on front brakes?
so i done a list of what i might need for the build , as follows
this is what i own at the moment to start with including the engine maybe!
diff to cut : but how long ?
4x2" box section steel for rails ( chassis ) 4 mm thick heavy!
4 speed manual g/box to go
2 x 12" tires rear & optional for front wheels 6 or 8 most likely
2 or 3 ,12 volt pump& tank units for hydrolic ram's ect
air rams as well
pulley's & sprockets & chains & belts & such are plentiful in my junk collection
uni ball steer joints & alike are ready available too
have some gear ratio items ( limited )
2 electric clutch sets from cutter deck units( 12 volt)
alternative engine is an 1800cc ford escort engine 1960's era car engine
