  1. Chrome Tip Stack Muffler

    I am in Leroy NY , no they don't come with the elbow but you can pick one up at any hardware store
  2. RJ 58

    I have way to many projects and some have to go , this is a nice rj58 that has the wrong motor but would make for a nice project someone , I have no way of shipping so it would have to be picked up at my shop , $450 obo
  3. Chrome Tip Stack Muffler

    Yes they fit and work great on the K301 motors
  4. Nice looking tractor , I can only hope mine comes out looking as good , Nice job !!!!
  5. RJ refresh

    The gear box is my biggest worry on the one I'm doing , I hope mine looks as good as yours does on the inside , Good luck with your project , Looking good
  6. I laugh everytime I look at all the notes on it on how to make it run , there is even an arrow on the hood bracket in case you don't see the one on the hood
  7. Well this is what I am starting with , I wish the paint was better but its not so its time to tear it down and give her new paint , the motor in it is wrong so its got to go plus I want a little more power for it so I bought this K161 to put in it , and of course I'm going to put a custom muffler system on it
  8. Its not the right motor and I want something bigger in it , it has a tec 4hp motor from a snowblower , I want a kohler but bigger than a k90 or k91 , I will post pictures when the motor gets here , I like the idea of maybe spacing the hood up high enough to get the k161 in there And yes the mini bike (1971 Rupp roadster 2 ) is getting modified , that's just one I picked up the same day as the tractor , its in with the other 25 mini bikes
  9. Well I just got this one about a month ago , really don't want to cut the hood , I was thinking dropping down the frame where the motor sits , I was just wondering if anyone else ever put one in a RJ , heres a picture of it when I picked it up
  10. Can anyone tell me if a Kohler K161 will fit in an rj58 , I bought a motor and its being shipped to me and I'm not sure on the size and if it will fit in my rj project or I'm I going to have to use it in another tractor , Thanks
  11. Well if its going to be a dually , it needs dual stack mufflers on it , one on each side
  12. We want to see that new stack muffler on the old girl !!!!!
  13. Rebuilding a Wheel Horse underdog

    Maybe I should have welded some heavy washers to the rain cap , theres a lot of volume coming through that pipe
  14. Are you the one that made the chrome stack muffler and I think it came in two lengths? I seen it a couple of months but couldn't find it now.  If so when do you think you will have some more

      Hi Jerry , I make them all the time if you need one , they come in 6" and 8" long mufflers and 2 1/2" and 3" diameter , 1" pipe thread in male of female thread , they all come with a 8" chrome stack that bolts on , they cost $60 and that includes shipping to the lower 48 states , you can pay for them by sending a money order or by paypal , just let me know when you want one


      Thanks , Jim
