That's awesome looking. How did you flip the spindles and hook the steering up.

@Shed @ebinmaine I will get some up close pics of the setup when I get back over to the shop...maybe tonight...theres not a whole lot of weight on the front of this tractor...that little briggs is a feather compared to our Kohlers, i can pick up the front and set it on jackstands with one hand, so weight shouldnt be a problem

Thanks Bryce.

I know what you mean. The late 70s 8 horse Briggs that is in Trina's 657 temporarily is so light I can pick it up and walk it around with one hand.

All aluminum block and head.

The question is, does the little Briggs have enough power to lift the front end. I would say it does if revived up high enough. If it does it's going come down hard. Will the front axle and wheels stay together?

Maybe it won't hold up to wheelies but you'll sure look cool doing it

Professor1990 "Flipped the front spindles to lower the front end"

I cannot flip the spindles on my 704 (stock photo) So I had to find out why? Your 701 axle is like a 551 Suburban and mine is not. Lucky me for I have one laying around. Thanks for posting because I may have never known the difference.

Shed is referring to Professor1990. And I had to find out why I could not do the same with my 704. Most axles, the spindles rest in holes that are slanted. Compare Professor1990's axle, it is like a 551, which the spindle holes are straight verticle.
