the annual redneck games must be getting close. am i to assume this is the winning mower?


"like people, every car possesses a unique character, with its own DNA, talents, and idiosyncrasies. push it too hard and it'll turn on you, as a person would. if its worth anything, it gets more interesting the more you get to know it"

luck is earned through hard work and determination, not to mention the willingness to take risks and to see bad luck and setbacks as opportunities for growth and a new direction.

  My boss is building him a fast mower. But I live in the Ozarks. Drop a dirt bike engine in it.

s12 would probably lose 1/8 mile, But would be horridly grotesque if it lost the 1/4... It has NO remains of lawn cutting. For exactly the reason you said. It moves too fast. Plus his lawn is small. So he uses his mazdaspeed mower.
But it's been running for 5 years like that now. So it's the most reliable boosted honda I have ever seen.

jay


so am i right? listen. the crank or whatever comes directly out the bottom, has two pulleys



a small one, and a large one, the small one is for the rear wheels, and the large one is for the blade



do i have to figure out a way to get that upside down? or should i use a different thing or what


ideas, to get it to the rear wheels..

You have the right idea. Go to a mower shop with the drive/blade pulley assembly like you have in picture 1, and take the "rear end" pulley. They will be able to help you. It should be a keyed shaft and they are pretty much standard.

Bust that nut loose and with a rubber mallet hammer downward. Since you will be hitting the blade pulley it doesn't matter if you bend it.

Do you have a propane torch? That will go a long way. You might need help to hold the top crank bolt in place.
