1  All-Terrain Mowchine Setup / Engine, Driveline & Braking / Craftsman GT6000 broken piston help on: December 07, 2012, 08:20:13 PM
I have a 80's craftsman gt6000 (I think) and it dropped a cylinder. Pretty sure the piston fell apart somewhere. Anyways, does anyone have any information on how to disassemble this motor properly. I'm not sure what brand the motor is but its a two cylinder with one carb on the top. Might possibly be a Kohler. I remember taking a Kohler apart a few years ago for the exact same problem. The whole thing fell apart while I was opening the case, I don't want that to happen to this one. I really don't want to scrap this mower, I really like it. Any information would be helpful.

If your talking about changing the angles on the front tires, I wouldn't think it would make much of a difference. Might make it more difficult to control. I have never used a setup like that so you might have to wait for a more advanced user to respond. :P

Haha. I had to move it and I didn't feel like getting the truck. Just moved it around the yard. Worked better than I thought.

This thing trots at about 7 mph. lol

Hey is anyone going to the Fulton County Fairgrounds this weekend?
10  All-Terrain Mowchine Setup / Project Builds / Re: creeds 1st build on: October 09, 2009, 06:51:10 PM

"You could put something cool like a dirtbike exhaust.."  bigsmile

Anyone use glasspacks on mowers nowa days?

Where is the thread on how "Ryf" divorced his transaxle?

Yeah this thought is short lived considering I don't have a tube bender. I might try to make some home remedies. Then again I find my self wasting time on something ill only use once... Grr... censored

well yeah I have to admit it does look cool and it would be a saving grace if I happened to stall out in some water but I don't think I'm going to do it. Maybe if I had some fab work done to my pipe to keep it a little bit further away from the engine I would consider it. Anyways here's a picture of what it would look like.

Anyways I thought I might need some lights sometime in the future and that led me to the question "Where would I mount them?" and I thought up of building a "roll cage" hood thing. I don't know if anyone has made one yet. Any comments or ideas?
I was thinking of welding a few pieces of metal tubes and bending them around the engine and making them bolt on.

I thought about turning the exhaust pipe upward, but wouldn't that blow the exhaust into my face?  question

Well I went with the MTD transaxle for the rear end on it. I have a hyrdo but I didn't use it.

Well how long should the pipe be? I have the stock muffler but the way its setup it sits right infront of the mower. If I left it on and took it out it would get smashed up and pulled off in no time.

Alright, a little update. I got some more freebies today. I got a hydrostatic rear end, 3 rear tires w/ rims and 2 front tires w/ rims. Im going to do a little switching with the tires and rims til im satisfied. Ill get pics up when I get my frame on wheels.

The name on the rear end I got today is called "Spicer". No idea what that means or what it is. Anyone got info on it?

Finally got the tires and the steering linkage on. The front end is welded up so its solid.

Alright. I got the motor on, the seat on and the battery in. Its running fine. Considering the belts are dry rotted and cut up. I've been driving this thing around the yard for like 30 mins. This is what I wanted to get done, but I wouldn't consider it finished...

I was also wondering if I left the muffler off the motor will it mess anything up or give me problems in the long run?
