Your idea for building this crawler sounds interesting.
Are you going to use a Bolens tractor hood and grille on it ?

I am going to use 100% of the tractor but the hydro and the front axel.

Update:
I got the crawler to fire on carb clean after geting the mag to make spark and the one velve freed up.
Next thing is to get the carb all clean up and put back on then it's seeing if I can get it to run and move.
Once I see if every thing works right the cutting starts.

Watch out you dont get a nose bleed going too fast. hehe It should be called a creeper. Will you gear it up when its dressed as a Bolens for a little more speed? It sounds like a good runner. Slow or not, I kinda like it. Really cool toy u got there.

Like your crawler. Bet you could move lots of things with the gearing it has. Hope it will meet your expectations.
