MTF used to be more for big tractors and related, BUT, just like the hobbie, has now drifted into lots more on GT's and other items. I'm on the MM forums at times and almost nothing goes on there or very slow at least. Has a good group for the MTD line of 990's and others. Power King, not so good, and Speedex about Non-existant!  They like the CUT and SCUT types quite a bit also.  The usual too much Green and Red big tractors there, like other places. It was once the best tractor forum on line, but has older version of the programs, not as easy to get around on as it is here, but still interesting.

Ok. So. Let me splain' my logic a bit. Going to be using parts from two 1250 large frames, a White GT-1855, a Bolens 850, and a Ford F-350 SD. Yep, you read that right. Going to move the factory frame rails, now the transaxle(s), will be more-or-less centered, front to back. As much as a 4x4 would be awesome, devising a transfer case system would be fairly difficult. Not saying I won't do it in the future, just not now. The frontmost transaxle will have the hydro pump removed, and a blockoff plate will be made. This will result in a free-spinning transaxle. Motor will mount in the location shown, and will use a double sheave pully, as well as one on the hydro pump, to run the drive system. Pivot has given me some trouble, that being said, I think I have a solution. Going to use a rear axle shaft from a 2006 F-350 turbodiesel, cut it down, and put it in a piece of very heavy-duty thick walled steel pipe, which will be welded to the front half (Maybe, any benefits to it being on the front or back half?) Axle will fit VERY snugly in this pipe, and will be held in with a "Collar" of sorts. Many grease fittings will be added to the pipe. Steering will be mechanical, utilizing the factory Bolens 1250 column and a VERY long tie rod, to a "V" shaped piece, which will face the back half of the machine, and pivot. There will be two HD tie rods off this plate to turn the machine. I may T into the hudraulics at the pump, and add a rear lift remote. Operator's area will be in the frontmost part. Not really sure of the design yet.

Always lots of engineering in a project like this.
Any way to use hydraulics to drive the fronts?

Thought about that. Would need a monster pump to do that I think....and a very expensive hydraulic motor. I also obtained 4 new 30x9x15 tires for it!

Sadly..I have all kinds of pumps and motors..One day I will build something cool with all the hydro crap I have around here....Just not sure what it will be.Necessity will dictate as always.

Update! With pictures!!!! So, got the complete tractor tore down. Going to do the same to the parts rig next. Who likes my frame idea? Pretty slick, huh?81d598ecc8dd287ebe7a7312291547d5.jpg6c890e55d333f83f2f2223c2b4f6e20c.jpg6074704ced734cfe27369cc559d8fa1d.jpg

Stupid question time! Thinking of how I want to run stuff, could I reverse the transalxle, so input shaft is facing backwards, and run it that way? Would the reverse (Now foward) speed be ajustable so it would be as fast as foward normally? This would allow for the motor to be connected to the transaxle via a shaft, and would also make it easier to run the PTO.

It's aaaaaallllll good! Decided to put the motor on the front half, for ease of running the PTO. Pics included. This was a rough mockup, I probably will use the Bolens fenders and foot rests uploadfromtaptalk1463522442240.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1463522409888.jpg
