mower looks a lot like mine George I like those hoods gives an old school look now u just need a kohler under there we all know that will never happen
Well I thought I would share what I been up too in my free time...started with Murray wide Body frame rails as my chaissis. Will run another Vertical Tecumseh Engine. This is gonna be a CHEAP build easy build, and again to show it can be done cheaply and yet be fast and win races.The rear axle is in seat in and fenders inplace.Using Jakes hood this is what its gonna look likerear view of it LOOK familiar, THATS right its the fenders off OLD RED the original set before I went to 6" wheels. SO inessence this is the 2nd rebirth OF OLD RED. And I will even let the old Bird Drive it. Another angle of the rear viewsomething different here, using scrap and drop offs I made the axle from 1x2 square tubing We will see how this works I may be redoing the mount for the Steering column as I do not like this one.Here is the cross bars and the lagb sitting in there not bolted down as of yetnice tight and right against the bearing no flex here.A rear view of axle and fender mount this is built to sit 2" off the ground. here is the deck tacked to the frame, yes I love the look the deck halves give AND i am thinking of incorporating the grass chute into the exhaust as IU did on jakes Single.This is the left sode with the deck half on. Close up of where the rear sprocket is gonna be Here is the right side this is going to be the brake side. ONLY two cassettes here on the axle. The way I have it built frame is 15" wide there is no need for the third bearing. Already have a a couple chassis out there with this setup and it works well.,
