Takes a 'Lickin and keeps on tickin

Update on my John Deere Liquifire project... Went and road the first sled for about 5 hours / 35 miles! The good: it ran great the entire time- started, worked great, didnt die, made it all the way in and all the way out. Did okay in the deeper snow too, but sure sucked on the hills and doesnt go to fast unless you're on the harder stuff. On hard packed roads it went like stink, 'round 80 mph!

The bad- headlight quit workin, seems like the head gasket might be leakin into the cylinder and it was real hard to start after I got it home. Think thats because the cylinder filled up with coolant. Going to have to check that out. Anyways, PICS!
