Latest video:
Fabricating skid steer brake differential carriage frame and mounts out of flat steel and square tubing so the differential can be removed for repairs. Mounting transmission in place only with two bolts first so it doesn't move while fabricating and mounting other things. It needs more mounting points in the future though. This handmade tracked vehicle has a 20 HP V-twin engine that will be connected to the five speed Peugeot Partner gearbox with CVT - continuously variable transmission that will act as a clutch too. Side brakes will steer this ATV and also brake it (duh), operating the thumb throttle taken from a snowmobile mounted on one of the brake levers will give me a really simple vehicle operating pattern so it can be operated only by using your hands. The car wheels I use on this ATV leaked air so I had to remove the tyres and refurbish the rims. I went to a local car repair shop and asked for a set of used tires with a good bead on them which I yet have to transport home and mount on the rims. I still have to fabricate the engine mounts and turn the adapter so I can install one part (spreading pulley) of the CVT on the gearbox clutch shaft. I also have to take apart the front wheel drive gearbox's differential and lock it. One of the half axles will then be used as a prop shaft and that completes the powertrain. If for some reason these universal joints / tractor PTO parts fail (so I've been told, never seen in the homestead / farm in practice over a couple of decades though) I can replace them and the poor Lada / Fiat differential, if needed, with a beefier BMW E36 independent rear suspension - differential, half shafts, the whole deal. So no worries! Thanks for watching, share, comment and subscribe for more because more will come!

I hope that will be the bottom. If not, the differential is upside down. changing fluid will be fun. As well as something else 😂

Breaking tyre bead, place tyre on ground, bottle Jack upside down over tyre , but under something solid like tractor or heavy SUV, works well and doesn't require fancy gear or damage bead, use Jack upside down as psi of base(big) rather than jack point(small) is hugely increased. Used right side up, you may not get enough pressure to break bead before starting to lift your resisting point, great project, cheers

Wow, really like what I see. You really have a talent for machine/ mechanical/ engineer work... Just all around talent. I've been wanting to build a small tank replica/ tracked ATV toy for a while now. I've been watching a lot of different videos to help inspire my design and build plans. You have really given me some good ideas, thank you. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see this when you're all done.

Your angle on those U-Joints is far too great The maximum recommended angle for a regular U-Joint is 3 degrees. After that they start to vibrate and the wear is increased greatly. The angle you have looks to be between 30 and 45 degrees which is prohibitive. In addition, since you no longer have a two point mounting on your transmission input shaft you can expect the input shaft bearing to go south fairly quick. The input shaft normally is supported on the clutch end by a bushing or a bearing mounted in the back of the engine crankshaft. The side loading from your belt drive will cause the bearing to try to cant towards the engine which will destroy it.

Surprised that you didn't tack the nuts to the underside of your mounting tabs. That would keep them from vibrating loose or at least make it so you wouldn't need to have a wrench on both sides.

I understand why you have the differential, so you can steer with the brakes, but if you get into loose or muddy terrain isn't the track with the least traction just going to spin?

You can then brake spinning one, to transfer power to the standing one, I guess.

I think not putting the drive axel concentric with the drive wheel center is going to be a problem! Move the last cross member back. Drop the drive until it’s in line with the axels

How big does the engine have to be for this light vehicle? When taking into account 4x gear reduction this 20 HP engine translates into enough torque on the wheels. I don't see a problem here.
