Here are a few pictures of my friends Sears tractor. He decided to swap in a Yamaha Motorcyle engine into it. It's strictly a plow tractor / yard tug so no mower deck involved. With the 3 speed high-low and 6 speed trans. on the engine it has 36 high and 12 reverse gears. It's chain driven to a jack shaft and then belt drive to the rear transaxle. I haven't been able to see it since he got the engine mocked up with the new mounts, he (member RLP) has gotten it moving under it's own power since then. He's still fine tuning the pullies and chain sprockets to get full use of the speed ranges available. It's still under construction, so go easy on the critiquing. He wanted to get it moving to work out the bugs. The exhaust is probably going to be made 2 into 1 and a vertical muffler and stack, the stock mufflers are way too loud. Here are a few pictures from his cell phone that I got from him after we had dinner this evening. Purists beware!
