Tires / Tire Help Needed
« on: October 18, 2010, 01:11:53 am »
Hello I have been building another pulling tractor for the last little bit and I have attempted to go a different route this time than the usual narrow front wheels and tires. I recently bought a set of 5in Dia by 145mm wide polished douglas wheels. I am looking for the smallest tire I can mount to it. I wanted a turf tread or 5 rib style but so far all I have really found is kart tires. I have never used metric wheels on aything like this so I thought Id ask for some help. I figured about an 11x6x5 tire would fit but wasnt real sure and had no Idea where to find these tires except on ebay. If some one could enlighten me as to what sizes are available the smallest that would fit also as to where I could get them brand doesnt matter but price does Id like to get out as cheap as possible. They donot have to be new either so if anyone has a used set to sell pm me about them and Ill get back with you thanks Josh

Driveline / Need Help Figuring belt size
« on: July 16, 2010, 02:19:46 pm »
Hello guys and girls I am nearing the point of figuring out what size belts I need. So I have a couple questions concerning this. My first question is what is the best way to measure for the belt dimensions I have 1 of the two belts off of my tractor that were original but It doesnt matter cause Ive changed the pulleys out and there all different dimesions Ive also Moved the trans  back 4in its not the stock trans either its from a different tractor so had to move it back and do plenty of cutting and restrengthening to make it fit. I know that no belt I have will even come close to fitting so Im trying to figure the best way to measure for one I was also woundering how the red belts are measured from the inner length or the outter length. I thought of a way I might could do it but Im looking for a better way the way I do it is hard to get accurate any way Thanks  for the help in advance Josh

Briggs Flathead / Rod Question
« on: April 22, 2010, 02:01:08 pm »
I have a Biggs Flattie model# 251417-0137-99 as many of you can tell by looking at the model# Its a horozontal Shaft engine. What I was woundering was if some one could tell me what the part number if for a replacement rod fom an OHV engine. Also if I could get it I would like to have the model number from the OHV engine the rod would fit. I looked on Biggs at the new vanguards but the largest horozontal single they show is 15hp and the model displacement is like 23.54 or something odd like that. Would that rod fit? Thanks guys
I was told hitch has a website does anyone have the address i heard he built  billet head 28 and that it was on there id like to see it sounds cool. Thanks again. Josh
