Anything that doesn't fit somewhere else & general forum updates

Just converted a Peg Perego Gator and tractor to use pneumatic tires. The process was the same except I used a 7/16 threaded rod on the tractor to widen the stance. The stock gator rod was sufficiently long.

I started out with Arnold wheels with premounted Carlisle turf saver tires.

Used a rubber mallet and a block of wood to force a pvc drain pipe (2" pipe) into the wheel then drilled and pinned the shower drain at two locations opposite of each other.

Instead of using saltydog's method of attaching the driver to a 3" pvc pipe, I used a reducer to 1.25" PVC pipe and cut nothes to engage the transmission. The smaller pipe fits perfectly over the circle in the transmission. Cement glue all the pvc pieces and cut a pex line to slide over the 7/16 rod since the wheel hub is 5/8.
