I've got poweeeeeeeer! Still need the final inspection, but at least I don't have to stretch extension cords across the yard anymore. To suit the "requirements" to install a panel, I put one GFCI...

Eh... It's not THAT big (35x45) and the floor is way too rough. Besides, I really don't want skid marks all over my shop floor.

Eventually I'll have the slab resurfaced and leveled. I'd like to...

I was up on the roof yesterday afternoon trimming some branches away... It's kind of funny how springy the building is. It's super rigid as a whole, and 100% structurally sound, but definitely a bit...

This building will eventually be a dedicated fabrication and metalworking shop. Still a ways to go, but at least I know it's not going to pancake under a snow load this winter.

Coming up on 2 years since we moved, and I've finally gotten around to working on one of my barns. The lockdown was a god send... Would have taken me a year or more of weekends to get to this point....

1" shaft with a 3/16" key is very odd. 1/4" is the standard.

Just to throw it out there, a Dremel, a couple files, and some patience would make that engine a whole lot easier to find a clutch...

You can still achieve Ackerman with a leading link by making your pittman arm triangular, and have the tie rods cross. Left to right, right to left. You need to have one mounted above and one below...

The "right" bolt is REALLY dependant on the engine you have. Most use the same 5/16" fine thread, but shaft lengths vary, and if you don't have more than a couple threads engaged into the shaft, it...

How long ago was it? Threads auto lock after a certain amount of time to prevent dead threads from being bumped.

Pricing will be pretty level across the board. GPS or BMI probably the easiest. "Overpriced" is relative. If you're comparing against a Chinese 40 series, they're all going to be "overpriced".

The 780 would also be one to consider. Perhaps slightly undersized (20hp 4 stroke), but definitely beefier than a 40 series.

Exactly. You've got a 2hp motor that can spin what, 5000 rpm? So you're geared for like 40-45mph, but the motor just isn't powerful enough to push 500 lbs to that speed, so it's overloading. Badly.

That's a terrible suspension design, IMO.

U joints are one of those things that have pretty finite limits. Exceeding the power, speed, and angle ratings just doesn't really work out well.

Yes, switching two of the three motor leads on a 3 phase (brushless) motor will reverse it.

The issue at hand is, I believe,, your gear ratio. 6:1 is a proper ratio for a 6hp gas engine. Not...

Wait, did you put a bigger sprocket on the motor and keep the axle sprocket? That's going the wrong direction if you're overloading the motor.
