I have not done it since. I use braided on it now!!! A cheaper way would be run the solid line then a short braided line from frame to brake.

Your new measurement should be 28-1/4 from front of frame to cassette holder and 2 3/4 inch from the top of panel to top of cassette and you will be in the same loctaion as I am with old style cassettes.

george do these measurements hold true with the current weldments for the adj cassettes ec is offering?  thanks for the input

I have a question dealing with where the motor is located.  The area where you grind off or cut.  Is it that lip that turns downward.  Do you grind or cut that hole lip off.  I couldn't tell in picture or I just didn't understand.


I would have copied the picture but I couldn't because i am on a government computer and it will not let me see pictures that are posted.

I got the mower completely dis assembled yesterday and started doing the grinding and noticed that the lip is under the motor looks completely different than the one you built.  Mine actually looks like a 6" pulley could fit through.  Should i even worry about cutting that lip off.  Also, since this is my first build would it even matter if I use 1" square tubing, since i am not worried about weight for my first mower.

Anything that is hanging under the frame or not needed needs to be cut off.  Don't want anything there that the belt could POSSIBLY get cut on

If you build the frame light and right, it will be a whole lot easier to sell if you decide to build a new one or move to a new class.  Use what is race proven!

This is the first and best chassis I have built so far.  with the exception of the battery mounting location, it was built exactly to his design.  What an excellent and light chassis.  Also, it seems to be predictable for the way it handles throughout its life span.  Mine has gone through so many abusive races over the last 2 years, and it still performs well. It would be like the buick 3800 of lawnmower chasis....

Now that i understand on the buick 3800.  I have already scouted out a MTD with the V-Twin.  The guy is wanting $125.  Just need to get the bosses approval.

Hey George I am building an MTD for the SP class following your build. This is my first time building a racing mower. My mower came with the two small rear fenders that get bolted on each side. I personally don't like the look of them. If I found a set or MTD rear fenders that are one piece will they bolt right up to my frame or are they completely different.

Where do you get the tie rod for the steering from the shaft to the front end?
