Ray, started right up too! I think you got yourself a runner there once you get the brakes adjusted.
If there's a differential between those drive wheels, then that is pretty much the expected behavior if the engine is applying the same amount of power as you apply the brake to one wheel the extra force will be transferred to the other wheel due to the differential. If you want a challenge you could try adding linkage that reduces the throttle any time that you apply either brake.Also, when I brake one wheel to turn the cart, it seams like the other wheel actually speeds up so that it turns much faster then you would expect.
The Osgood show is the 24-26 of this month so that gives me about 2-1/2 weeks.Oh, boy that stinks ....but we do get to see some more of your ingenuity at work...do you think you will be able to do it by the time of the show you wanted it for?...and now you have to come up with something to use those brake controls on...do you have everything on hand that you will need to do it?
JD sorry it didn't work out with the steering brakes, that was a really nice implementation you did. Anyways, we all know how to do that now so time to learn how to put in a rear steering axle, please lead on professor!So it is back to work on the cart.
First thing is to use a come-a-long and get it back up on the work table.

The wheels in the back aren't as wide apart as the front wheels so I had to use a third ramp.
With it going up just a little crocked, the front and rear wheels on the left ( as you're looking at it ) stay on the same ramp.
On the other side, the rear wheel rides on the inside ramp and the front wheel rides on the outer ramp.

The pickup bed and the rear axle are removed.

The front wheel is removed and the cart is blocked up so it is sitting level on the work table.
This gives me more room to work with for installing the new steering.
The white line drawn on the center of the original wheel hub is to mark where the inside of the rubber tire is located.

Most of the time my ideas work just fine but sometimes they don't. It can be frustrating sometimes but I just keep plugging away at it until I get it right.Totally useless; I love it!
Hydraulic steering maybe?
