Regular deer mech here.
Can't give you much help but why do you need a welder to get a pulley off?
Is it stuck?

Wd40 and leave it overnight get a big crowbar and whack it into submission with a hammer of your choice.
Never had a pulley outside of a deck that wouldn't get off

Replacing the engine would be the first thing I would do  If it wasn't a registered vehicle in a country where you are not allowed to swap engines and they even check the engine number every year.
even if i wanted to buy a replacement engine i can not just buy a briggs off the shelf but it needs to come off the exact same vehicle type and I need to get permission to do so and deliver all the papers of the other vehicle to the dmv.
All for a fee of course.

In short: no
Long story: welcome to israel  :bash:

Iam not here for a racing mower build but figured I'd go to the professional's here.

Iam a john deere mechanic looking to get a few more horsepower out of my 18hp gator
I've already decided to punch out the block to fit the 40ci intek pistons.
Then put the rest of a 23hp in and a 35hp carb as a cherry on top

Just a few things: do I need the rods from the 18/20hp or the 23 to fit the intek piston wrist pins?
Iam not getting billet rods in atm if it breaks it breaks and we go oversized with new sleeves.

Also is it possible or advisable to advance the timing gear on the 23hp?
Have heard it being done on the 20 but don't know for sure.

Also tips to improve on the engine are welcome.
Would love to add a better oil pump if possible but don't know if there is maybe an electrical oil pump that's good?

ive got parts galore like a kid in a candy shop but just don't know what goes where to make the best engine

Thanks in advance

We dont have clubs 
We dont have races either for that matter.
Iam litteraly the first one in israel.
Not too long ago even car racing was still banned.

I am maybe thinking about organizing a litlle racing day for stock mowers next year for prize money.
Maybe other people will catch the bug too.
I myself am dutch so i grew up around crazy farm boys and festivals, just hoping to bring the same spirit here.

Question: where is a good place to buy parts?
I looked at bmikarts for parts of the axle and 2 wheels but shipping alone will send me back 150 dollars.
A good shop somewhere in the e.u. would probably save me some extra money

Hey guys,

Iam starting this topic off a little different than usual
Iam a mechanic for an importer of john deere snapper ferris etc and the whole 9 yards.
Now just last week I got spurred on by my wife to make a racing mower.
I got my eyes on a snapper carcass we have lying around in the junkyard so I know what my base is going to be.

Now before I can start taking any pictures I need some guidance on what parts I need.
I know Iam going for a live kart axle as all mowers we have are hydros
ill take an ragb from a john deere deck
Iam going 4 inch rims front 6 inch rear and turf tyres to keep it sort of looking like the original thing.

Other than that I need a shopping list of what Iam going to need for a live axle so I can order my things if anyone can help me with that

Also, what engine is the best I can take? We mostly have briggs and kawasakis lying around.
I was thinking a briggs v twin?

Thanks in advance
