My intentions were to save some of these guys the trouble of making the same mistakes that I already have in the past......... save them time and money.
 

That is what its all about.... Doing it right and for as little dollar as possible. We all try to help each other accomplish that.

went out to the shop and got the spindles built, i used hubs you can get at most farm stores for the spindle barrels with an 1 1/8'' inside diameter!

i cut a short piece of 1 1/8'' shaft to take up the space between the top and bottom bearings, the holes drilled in to the hub are there so i can weld the shaft inside the hub..

here the inner shaft is welded into the hub and then i drill out the inner shaft for the bolt to pass through..

now with the inner piece welded in the bearings sit flush inside the hub, these are 1 1/8'' by 1/2'' sealed bearings..


then i drill a 5/8'' hole into the side of the hub at a 10 degree angle for the grade 8 bolt to be welded too, the spindle bolt goes as far into hub as it will, then it is welded in, if you are unsure about your own welding ability, it would be best to have somebody do it for you, as this weld is very important...now do the same for another one and that is that..

finished spindles with plenty of up and down adjustment for different tire heights..

That is your best advice so far.

Keep up the good work.

well i managed to get a few little things done today, built the frame for the 3rd axle bearing, and started to work on the steering, waiting on axle to show up and i will have a rolling chassis....

well the inteks are not favored for this class, but i want to be different, and honestly to me, a horizontal engine is just not lawn mower enough for me....lol, plus by using a vertical engine i can swap anytime in the future for any other vertical engine with minimal work....

i did get the mock up engine mounted today...used 1 1/4'' 3/16'' flat iron and welded it on the top of the frame to eliminate the step that the mtd walk-thru chassis have....centered the engine and placed it a little farther forward than stock, will be running the engine backward as well with the cylinder heads facing me...
