Riding push mower
« on: February 28, 2012, 10:10:27 PM »
I've been working on this for my 6 year old Granddaughter. Started on it right before Christmas, and am finally about done. I'm waiting on a new pan gasket for the motor. It is a 4hp Tecumseh push mower engine. Then I can put it on and get it finished. It is geared to only go as fast as a stock riding mower. The clutch pedal must be depressed to engage the belt. When the pedal is released the return springs put the brake on. I have a kart seat for on it, that will be mounted on top of the motor. I'm thinking about putting a small wing on top of the handle.

Very cool,  I'm sure she will love it, being Barbie pink.  We will need pictures of her sitting on it, maybe even a video

If you want to see something funny, you ought to see me running it!  :woo: I had to try it out, before I tore it down to paint it. It pulled me around pretty good, believe it or not!

Grubby, the motor goes in the stock location, but I turned it around, so all the hot stuff is under and behind the seat. I wouldn't want her to burn herself!
