Well I've been debating on whether or not to start a build post but decided to go a head and do it. Not many people have built New Hollands into racing mowers but I have seen a few Holland pullers. I have raced this mower last year but have it down to bare frame now for chassis strengthening and other mods. I will try to post as many pictures as I can and will try to have this project wrapped up by March. Stay tuned for more...

The wide body has the squared C channel type chassis. Its just a stock mower.

Got some steering parts done today. Heres a picture of how it looks. As the rod from the steering shaft goes forward (steering wheel turning right) and moves the lever under the exhaust forward, the lever on the outside of the frame goes back. Then as the outside lever goes back it pulls the shaft back thats connected to the axle hub. The action of you turning the steering wheel to the right which will cause the hub to turn right. Have i confused you yet? LOL I have a video of it to but i cant post it on here on how it works. More to come soon, building the front axle this week and just got the engine wraped up.

Well got a few things done today. Got the hiem joints in and got the front axle tacked together and a spindle on. Looks pretty good. I would post a picture but for some reason my phone wont let me  confused when i select a picture it reloads as a new untyped post and theres no attachments? Once the girlfriend gets off the computer i will post a picture. Not bad for my first time fabbing a front axle. Going to take it to work in the morning and use our Lincoln welder to finish welding it, feel safer that way lol hopefully i will have a rolling chassis this weekend

Worked on the front some more. Got the steering lined out and got the front axle mounted. Pretty nice day out today so i also got the garage cleaned up and organized. Had it as rolling chassis today and realized the rear axle is sitting way to high so going to work on that this coming week

Looking good!

I especially appreciate all the stuff on the floor, I don't feel so all alone, lol.  I feel sorry for anything even partially magnetized when I build a chassis.

Oh well, thank goodness for photobucket lol The mower now sits as a rolling chassis, for now, till i can get the rest of the engine together. Still have a ton of work to do and getting it ready for paint. Will post more soon

Well i didnt get as much as i wanted to get done this weekend but i did get the clutch on and working and the front tires mounted.Ii also ran into a problem, from outside to outside im running pretty much dead on 40'' wide. I cant remember what the width for ModX is suppose to be but the rear axle is 38" sidewall to sidewall so it looks like i will have to cut 2" out of the center of the front axle to get it back down to 38". Not a big deal but still a set back. Will try to get that cut and bolted back up this week and do some final weld touch ups on some chassis bracing and other areas. I also need to finish up the steering and get the brakes mocked up and see how that will work. More pics to come..
the new twist clutch
