1  All-Terrain Mowchine Setup / Engine, Driveline & Braking / Re: Craftsman GT6000 broken piston help on: December 11, 2012, 07:43:45 AM
I would almost guess that no matter what broke in there, you're going to have to "rebuild" the engine. Which means opening up the case, and dumping all the broken parts out. You will need to inspect the rod if it's still there, and the cylinder bore for scoring, and could have possible bent push rods etc. You will need to breakdown the entire lower part of the motor anyway, so I would not be too afraid to check it out. Also once you find out the engine model, there is plenty of information on the web, such as service manuals.
2  All-Terrain Mowchine Setup / Engine, Driveline & Braking / How important is KPI on an off road mower? on: December 06, 2012, 01:36:04 PM
Just like the subject says, how important is KPI on an off road mower? I was going to make my own spindles, and was thinking if the rear is locked, then I would need all the help I could get in the steering department... However building them without the 10° KPI would be easier...

I was debating on using a Ford LT75 for the project. It seems a bit narrow, but has some rugged parts for being stock. I was thinking smaller the better in case you had to move it by hand or get it stuck in something. The ford has had the engine replaced with a briggs OHV, but too small to use in racing an OHV class. My main question is how do you keep the belts dry? I will likely be using a peerless 600 series transaxle because I have 3 of them.

Hello, let me take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Scott and I'm from Ithaca NY. I have been an electronics repair tech for the last 13 years. I also bartend 2 nights of the week. I have been a Heymow member since October of 2009. I have been collecting parts and mowers for a couple years now, and am currently working on building a racing mower. I bought myself a welder, and several other tools since then, and figured with one of my donation mowers, I could build a trail mower and pratice on some of my fabracating skills. I was totally inspired by the El' Toro, as the first mower I was going to transform into a racer was a rear engine mower, but everyone thinks they are unsafe to race. Took the 700 trans off, anything else I maight be able to use and basicly scrapped the rest. (Wish I kept it now) I have some logging trails around the property, so I think I will try to make something for riding around on them. I figure the skills I would gain in building an ATLM would help me in building a racer. I'm not a BYB, and believe in saftey first. Thank you.
