Pulley Swap Speed Test - Hot Rod Lawn Tractor - Racing Lawn Mower
I managed to get the pulley swap done yesterday and we took it out for a little test drive. I decided to leave the engine pulley stock and just swap the transaxle pulley. So, I switched the transaxle pulley from a 9 inch diameter pulley to a 2.5 inch pulley. Then I took up the slack in the old belt, to figure out what length the new belt should be. It turned out that a deck belt from a 40" Murray works just fine. We still have some carburetor issues to address before we'll be getting the maximum performance out of it. I also have some modifications that I'm going to make to the spindles and front end. I hope you find this racing mower project interesting...thanks for watching!
Slicks Garage "World's Fastest Lawnmower"!
Here is Slick, the owner of Slicks Garage in Palmetto,FL., doing a burnout on his "World's Fastest Lawnmower" during the garage's monthly event called "First Fridays on Fifth". Held the 1st Friday of each month at Slicks Garage, 923 5th St. W. Palmetto,FL.. This was from August 2010. And by the way, for all of the assholes who sent me emails stating "So-and-so has the record for the world's fastest lawnmower! This ain't the world's fastest lawnmower!"......GET OVER IT!! I don't give a shit WHO has the "record". IT WAS JUST A TITLE. Good grief people, get over yourselves.

Fast Garden Tractor
My Pennsylvania Panzer with a 1972 750cc Honda SOHC. Rebuilt frame, (lengthened) installed Volvo 4 speed etc. Lots of work, but the tractor would go about 100mph. This video is poor because it was taken from a TV of a VHS tape, and it's about 15 years old.
Custom Lawn Mower Stack
the motor is a 11hp briggs and stratton. We shaved the head( or tried to). We made ourself a pull start with an old pulley. Yes the air filter cover does shake but it wasnt bolted on there the best in the world at the time but this was just a test run to see how the pipe would sound. www.myspace.com/bigpeoplefilms
