This YouTuber Is Making A Ford Racing Mower: Video

Custom car builds can be fun, but there are plenty of other, equally cool projects that can be accomplished by the enterprising home mechanic. Case in point: one YouTuber recently got started building a Ford racing mower with a 21 HP Briggs & Stratton V-Twin motor he acquired from a recent junkyard visit.

The YouTuber, who started the channel as “RealSteel 1776” at the tender age of 17, originally wanted to convert the Briggs & Stratton V-Twin from a vertical to a horizontal shaft for use in a custom go kart. But after many of his viewers cautioned against it, he decided to build a racing mower instead, even though “it’s something everyone’s kind of done,” he says.

The disused mower that he ends up selecting to serve as the basis of his build is an old Ford riding mower, sourced – as always – from the local junkyard. It looks quite a bit worse for the wear, but for a talented home mechanic like himself, fixing it up should be no trouble at all.

Be sure to watch this awesome Ford racing mower project kick off in the latest video from MacroMachines above.
