I did that the other day myself....  :dunno:

Was glad though, the wire was junk, but even my welds with better wire don't look as good as yours.
I make chicken turd welds.

Looking good there not only can you adjust by the cassettes but by moving them as well if you drill all the mount holes. My 06 chassis is that way also. Nice job.

OK I looked harder AND in your last pic you cannot mount the cassette in the position you have it in. The center shall we say Jack bolt must be at the top. THIS is what we run into using the cassette mount for karts and adjustable cassette's. They are mounted on top of the kart frame which means the axle comes out the top of the holder where a mower it comes out the bottom. My 05 and 04 chassis used those cassettes, and They have plenty of holes simply turn it over with bolt to top see if the still match the Holder holes. If not You may have to locate and drill new mounting hole thru cassette holder and frame. Have I confused you at all yet!!!  :woo:

Per the last line of the above quote....YES!!!

I am thinking YOUR reason behind this is that with the "JACKBOLT" located on the top, This would not allow the cassette to "SLIP-UP" out of position if the four other adjusting bolts were to get loose. Since my fat behind will be applying downpressure to the frame and making the axle wanting to move higher up in the chassis, the JACKBOLT will limit the travel of the cassette and locking it into it's height position.
Was that was you were trying to explain or do I still have it confused??

The 4" minimum ground clearance rule. This sounds stupid but im confused. Does that mean it has to have at least 4"'s of ground clearance, or can it have 5" and still pass?

Well I cut out the chassis for clearance for the axle and started the installation of the cassette holder on the other side as well.

Here I used a hole saw to cut out for axle clearance



Here I marked the section to cut out to be able to drop axle out thru bottom



Here is the chassis after above section removed



Here's more metal for the scrap pile



Not shown was that I redrilled the cassette holders to reorientate the adjustable cassette 180* for the way it was pictures before.

Finished welding up both sides, both sides are redrilled for the proper orientation of the cassettes, slid the axle in as well as the brake rotor and the gear hub. I need to get a gear for the hub so clearance can be cut in the back panel.




Within the next few day I'll weld in the tranny mount plate so I'll know where to position the rear sprocket so I can cut the clearance in the back panel!!!

I also mounted up my front wheels tonight as well!!!
