Default Mobilift Mighty Midget model T built by the Vaughan Motor Company

Meet Guido! Guido is a Mobilift Mighty Midget model T built by the Vaughan Motor Company, the same company that built Vaughan Flex-tred tractors.


The heart of Guido is the same engine and transmission found in a Vaughan Flex-tred model WS or WSR.




Guido was missing the crank starter as someone had try to build an adapter to use a pull rope to start the engine... it was no real effective
.
Fortunately I also bought a Vaughan Flex-tred WS (converted into a ride on) while we were at the Great-Oregon Steam-up... it needs help, but today it donated the crank and crank start adapter to Guido. I haven't decided the WS' future (sell vs part out vs fix) but for now, it was able to get Guido going.





Next up will be a full service and fluid change for Guido, figure out a better fuel tank situation, and investigate why it will hardly drive forward... stay tuned!

I'll be honest, I was a little worried it would decide to drop that Stover on the floor! Thanks!

I haven't posted on the Stovers yet. I need to reassemble the CT1 and build a cart for the CT3, get them all running together, then I'll get a thread started for them... currently things like Guido have taken my attention away from the poor little CT1

As I prepare for our club's upcoming show at the Twin Falls County Fair this next week, I was able to adjust the drive clutches in the Mighty Midget. It'll now drive in the gravel... sort of!
