Tommy, plans are for a bored out Vanguard. Got a couple more hours into it last night. Built up the fender mount and braced it up.

Also braced some of the rear frame.

Started to get the RAGB mount made.

Anyone ever try to run the engine in this configeuration. It sure does free up some room for steering.



Would have to cut the hood for an air cleaner, but I don't think it would hurt the engine. Oil gets slung to the back of the block where the pump is. I've seen some engines in backwards and seem to work ok.

Is that one using a Peerless 700 instead of a RAGB?

First one was luck. Happened to be looking at scrap mowers at one of my sponsors and it was sitting with a blown intek, rusty fenders and broken hood. Picked it up for $40 if I took them the hydro, Wheels, tires, and mowerdeck back. This new one happened to be at another repair shop that they had stripped for parts. It is a sabre and had the same frame, fenders, and lower dash as my Scott's. New upper dash, hood grille and fender flares and presto, it's a Scott's. Been looking for a while into buying another one but the prices for 6 year old mowers a just to much to cut it up into a racer.

Well after sitting here and studying how to do the bearings on the RAGB, This is what I came up with. Thanks to jerb for postings pics of his. It really helped me in my fabrication.








After welding it to the frame it will get braced so it will not flex.

7/8" shaft I had laying around from an old mower deck. Came off of an old Massey Ferguson. Working on the third bearing mount now. Picture up in the next day or so.

Been working on it some as time allows. Started on the 3rd bearing mount.

Still got some bracing to do to it.

Built the seat mounts. Left side.

And the right side.

Also after getting pointer from the WOO guy's decided to move the engine back. Slide it back into the dash and was surprised that it fits with very little work.

A little trimming to clear the oil filter.


And not much to do on the starter side.

Moved it back around 6 inches. Should make it handle better and gives plenty of room for steering.
