Mine still does it with unequal length tierods. i thought about making them equal length after I already welded the pivot point, but it seems to work ok so far. Find out when I drive it for sure.
Yours are close to the same though, I was talking like a 2-3 times length difference.
I am looking at redoing the steering on my CP, the pivot would be close to one side of the frame.

The biggest reason for equal length tie rods is that you only have to carry one size for replacements (spares).

The geometry will be the same, and its what has been done on all builds in the "build section" , just mounted in a different plane.

i agree, thats why i centered mine, just carry one size spare, in my opinion makes getting everything set-up easier as well!

Ditto on the tie rods... Even though I carry blank rod I can make whatever length I need, but with 7 mowers hard to carry an item for each one. But thats why I got mine equal also.

Haven't really touched this in a while but I have been collecting parts. Had a sweet rotor made. 10" to bolt to a standard brake hub. Stainless steel too.

Also had them cut me an 8" for the BP also.


Been busy redoing my daughters and my BP

Finally back on the SuperMod for a little while. Mounted a 10 inch rotor up and got the caliper mounted. Easiest one I have ever done. Drill 2 holes and done.




Made some bracing for the rear steering mount and fuel tank mount. Stuff is getting tight.




Going to have to make an access hole in the upper dash to put fuel in or make the upper dash come off with the hood. Haven't really decided yet.


Next on the agenda is a battery mount and wiring. More to come!
