7  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / K341 Pulling Build on: September 22, 2010, 12:05:32 PM
On my Briggs, other than Head Gasket and crank seals, I pretty much put it together with RTV sealant rather than Gasket set.

Can I do the same for my K341 being built for pulling...?

11  Mower Building / Setup Help / Garden Tractor Pulling / Rookie Questions on: January 17, 2010, 07:35:07 AM
I figure I would start a new thread to get all my really dumb/blond/rookie questions answered, then down the road I can delete this thread and no one will know how clueless I was...

I asked this in another thread, but bears repeting..."I'm thinking for a rookie season, I could get away with most any used tire that rolls and has lugs to set up ride height and get my feet wet at the pulls... I'll probably have my hands full sorting the chassis and weight setup out before I notice the tires are holding me back... I hate to drop $700 on top of the line tires when the machine hasn't been to the line yet..."

Is that a fair statement, or are there certain brands/combos to stay away from no matter what...?

Of the 10, 12, 14, and 16 hp (pro light or altered stock)...What size motor/class gets the most action (most hooks per pull) ? Do I want to start in a big (popular) class more compatition, but less action or focus on a "niche" class with less members and take a chance of pulling by myself...(or getting bumped) ? What size motor should I focus on ?


I'm sure I'll have more... doh





12  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / EC Transmission on: January 07, 2010, 09:02:01 AM

OR if you can wait we will be having our own by the end of Febuary. If you can wait till then these should be priced at 200.00 or maybe even a bit less. They will have steel gears and the cases will be beefier. All parts will be interchangeable with the peerless parts except the splined shaft and gearsand Input gear and bevel. BUT all peerless parts can be transplanted into these cases.

Are these classified as lawnmower transmissions, or an aftermarket unit...?
13  Mower Building / Setup Help / Garden Tractor Pulling / Thinking of getting into it... on: November 07, 2009, 02:42:03 PM
This is going to be my "Build" thread for 16 hp S/A Tractor...
I started several threads prior to this, so I merged them all here to keep info together...The first couple pages may be a bit "jumpy" and hard to follow, but the remaining should stay in order...Official build began 3/20/10 when I pulled the donor tractor apart for sand blasting (about page 6)...


Due to some health concerns, I am no longer racing mowers on the roundy round (although I plan on campaigning Sami on the AP for the coming season)

I still do like to tinker and been looking into pulling as an option to stay involved with the little tractors.

Been looking around for a good starting platform, and ran across this older Cub 126

 

Has a 12 hp Kohler and direct drive clutch (not belt or hydro)



Looks like a three speed trans



And a solid looking rear end with brakes on each axle...




Is this a decent unit, whats it worth ? Guys is asking $500 which is a bit more than I have been paying for a starting "racing" chassis,but I realize this is a bit more substantial tractor.

Let me know thoughts , weaknesses I should be on look out for, or any other concerns I should have before dropping cash on this unit

If I do get into this, I will be looking into pulling in the Wisconsin/Mn, Midwest area

Any links to clubs would be appreciated
