trying to build one
« on: November 02, 2010, 08:18:32 pm »
alright guys i have been all over this website looking and reading and i still need some help getting started.
i have a murray with a vanguard V-TWIN 16 with a dayna spicer rear end with a 4in pully on the back and 3 and a half inch on front heard small pully on the front will give me more lowend power. I ran it like that and it wont do but 10, everything is stock except the pullies  i have gather i need a perless rearend but i dont know which one i need :confused: and i dont know the equation for the pullys so any help is needed and im workin on getting the brake please give any info you can. wanna build a drag racer to do around 50 and 60 would be great but i havent heard of many mowers runnin belt drive going that fast. gonna stay with belt drive on this first build

thanx guys

So you want to race a mower? You did not put in your profile what part of the world you are located in. Attend a build clinic, or if you live near someone, odds are that they will talk in great depth about their mowers and how to build them.

 You need rules. You dont know how to build it untill you have a set of rules to build it by. Read this. http://www.heymow.com/index.php?topic=670.0

Just swapping pulleys on a stocker to more than stock speed is suicidle.

You cannot build anything to go fast saflry without spending money. First thing you do is strip it to the bare frame then start over building a purpose built chassis for raciing. Mowers are not toys. They are desiogned for 8mph. Anything more than that requires extentive rebuilding. Look in the build section there are plenty of how to threads with photos.

Hmm... To be safe you have to spend money just swapping the pulleys is a horrible idea... Im suprised this thread isn't already locked after u admitted to not want to do any work, or spend money, and wanting to ride it like a four wheeler.
NO DIVING!!!
