Finally got my little snapper back together today and got the lawn mowed so of course I snapped a picture of it

Image

when i got it it was pretty useless and rusted up with an 8 hp locked up tecumseh engine. I put a 11 hp briggs on it and got it moving around and mowing. when the belt snapped I decided to just go for broke and took the engine back off and sanded all the rust scale off and painted it snapper red and there it is. I like that tractor over my high dollar craftsman with the cupholder cause in my opinion it cuts better and is alot more maneuverable


now post up pictures of the other things we do while our cars are running

my father and I got bored and just said the "hell might as well paint it up and make it look pretty" ...... we're in it maybe 100 bucks total and it does a damned fine job on the lawn

Use a swisher big mow to mow grass. Rebuilt the Tecumseh v-60, so it dosent use oil. Now should Paint it catapiplar yellow, military green, or bill curry flat black for the fun of it.

Me and the girlfriend just removed the engine in her Beetle this weekend and installed a new clutch and put it back in. We did it all by ourselves thanks to a little help from a DIY Auto Repair shop. Probably one of the bigger automotive repairs I've done by myself so we are both pretty proud we did it! :)
