Quick update on progress.  I have cut a old belt to size and will buy one tomorrow.  I also started the motor up for the first time and it runs very good.  Haven't had much time to work on it lately.  Hopefully I can finish it before my son outgrows it.

LOL yeah I will be taking a extended road test once it's done.  Did a little more last night. 

Made the steering drag link out of some 3/8" rod. I'm going to use the mower steering joints for now until I can get some better ones.

Started on the exhaust.  It is a pipe for a Snapper that I cut and welded.  Total cost=$5. The pipe is going to run across the frame, down the right side, and exit in front of the RR tire with a chrome tip.

I have almost 2" of space between the pipe and plastic body.  A simple heat shield should protect the plastic well enough.

Got some more done last night.

Bought another Snapper exhaust and cut and welded to fit.  This section will be mounted to the frame with a spring of some kind to keep it from cracking from engine vibration.  Still need some more pipe and a muffler.


The 5/8 inch axle on the MTD spindle was too small for my 8 inch front rims.  I cut off the axle and tacked on a 3/4 inch bolt to use as a axle.

Both spindles done.
Comments welcome!!

Good progress.

What trouble are you having with the uploader?

I was able to upload two of the new pics but when I went for the third a box popped up asking where to save a file.  It was a 1 inch by 4 inch box and after it popped up everything I clicked on brought up that same box.  It's like all the links on the page turned into files that I could save.  I had to get back to work so I couldn't mess with it anymore.  I'm using Vista and Google Chrome.  I haven't had any problems before so I don't think it's my PC.

I figured out the uploader.  Apparently it isn't fully compatible with Google Chrome.  It works fine using IE.

That would do it.

The uploader is a good 3-4 years old now, way before Chrome's time.

Yeah takes awhile to get used to it. I usually have to upload one picture at a time.

I don't see why you guys have so much trouble with it. I'll usually zip a whole folder of like 30+ pictures and upload the zip file

I think my problem is, whenever I upload something I have to make it really small file size because it hangs up or something half ways through. I have this problem on youtube, google video and myspace. I've never uploaded anything bigger than say 5-6 Mb.

Strange, I've uploaded a 200MB file to the uploader before; and I just finished uploading several 1-2GB video files to YouTube.

On another note, we need to stop whoring NikoBellic's thread

Nah don't worry about it. I like the attention
I had to break up my photos into 6mb zip files or the uploader wouldn't take them.  I had close to 25 pics and it took 4 zips to get them on.

Got a little more done last night.  All that is left is to set up the brakes, make a support for the steering column, mount the front tires, and finish welding the frame. Hopefully I can ride this thing before christmas.

found some heim joints for the steering on a old go-kart frame

made some supports for the transaxle

clutch set-up

clutch applied

clutch released

made the tie rod from some 3/8" rod

Wow this place has really died down.  I'm putting my project on hold until after the holidays.  I wish everyone here a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
