It also uses the 017 speed up kit so I do not have to over drive it much to get the right ratio.

Well first thing this morning we got started on getting all the body work on with all the mounts.Here you see the cage or support system I build for all MTDs with the plastic dash. It also supports the upper bearing support for the steering column.


Here you can see the flat bar I add to hold the upper steering column support


Ok here is a cheap trick you can do and works for many type chassis. For your bearing supports I take old factory rims cim them so I can cut the inner bearing hub off. I use this for my steering column bearing supports. Like I said we are using what we have at our disposal on allot of small stuff.


Here is a closer look at what I cut off to use. I even use the wheel bearings if they are decent.


Here is the lower bearing in and welded in place. It sits right into the small recess where the column originally goes thru the chassis. I use a 5/8 lock collar to keep shaft from slipping down.


Here is the upper support made the same way. I also put a lock collar here also. With one on top of bottom bearing and one on the bottom of top bearing the steering column stays in place.


Here is an overall view of the steering column.


Here is alook with everything in place and Dash on it.


Here is a closer look with the das on showing the support work and how it runs inside the dash.


here is the rear fender support and how I add to the original fennder mounts. I raised the fenders 3/4 of an inch to keep the wheel clearance.


Here is another look at the fender mounts and support work.


We are testing the fender fit here using some old fennnders we use for mock up work.


One more look from a different angle of the fender and how it fits. We are happy with how that looks so now we will move up front


Here you can see the square tube I weld to the front axle to mount the front of the grill to. Nice neat and simple.


Here is all the body work sitting on it. We are using the body work off his stock mower. Its all painted and ready to go. All I will have to do is paint the chassis. We will paint that Black.


Here is a look from the front.


And another view of it Jacob wanted in the pic with the hood up. He is proud of it. All thats really left is clutch and pedal brakes and pedal and some small little things. Will be a bit before we get back to it. I have some customer work to get to and get ready for the 4 hour enduro in Florida. I promised him we would work on it this weekend so thats what we did.


mr. george the bearing yall used was it a 3/4 or 5/8s? i tried to find a stock 5/8 wheel with a bearing and only found 3/4. thanks

You can both sizes pretty easy at most big hardware stores. Or any small engine repair shop should be able to get them also

Me and Jacob worked on his mower today. He got the frame ready to weld the support tubing in. We also got an old set of spindles I never used dug out and put him an axle together. This first picture you see him deburring the cotter pin hioles in the axles. I had to drill those for him on the drill press. These spindles where built before I worked at EC Distributing where we started adding the 10 degrees of king pin inclination. We are using what we have at our disposal to keep the costs down.


Here you sim him taping the aluminum tubing for the tie rod ends. I do not recomend power taping unless you know what you are doing. I started it tto make sure he was straight and he finished it.


here is another view of him power taping. This is the other end of the tie rod.


Ok you are wonndering what he is doing. he is spinning the tie rod with the 1/2" drill and running scotch brite up and down it This gives it the brushed aluminum semi polish look all while taking the sccrathes and rough look off.


Here is his axle all asembled. As you can see this axle has no king pin inclination. It is old school so to speak. All my new chassis run the EC axle with 10degree inclination. All the parts are EC though.


here is a close up of the left spindle


Here is a close up of the right spindle


Here is a look at the jack shaft assembley. All aluminum. Another product from the thunder twin king himself Steve Bertrand.


What size Aluminum Rod stock is that and it is solid correct?

The drive line on bottom from motor to jackshaft is complete belt guides in place. The guides are 3/8 bolts with a flange nut welded to the frame on motor pulley. The jack shaft I drilled and taped the jackshaft plate and screwed them in.

5/8 just seems to big for a craftsman looks like the step would be to small to drill 5/8
