Generally, the dropped seat requires the sprocket to be outside the seat well, between the tire and the inner fender. A brake disc or band brake drum goes in the other fender well.

in essence, you are just moving the sprockets and such out from under your seat.

that is the easiest way, but by FAR not the only way. Like I said, the motor choice dictates the trans choice.. and so on

well im definitely wanting the look of the seat recessed into the fenders and I'll most likely go live axle in the rear but yea I guess I need to get my driveline figured out before the asthetics of it.

even with the stock set up, there is a good deal of room to lower things... Look at the set up, and figure how much you can cut out. The MTD I took apart to build the fox had almost 12 inches I coulda dropped the seat. Kinda hard to see over the hood when you get TOO low though

just use a briggs magnatron coil to match the horse power on the onan and it should work perfect... at least it does in theory haha

I'm still tryin to figure out why you wanna ditch the points... you can fine tune ignition timing with a points set up... they aren't that hard to figure out

I agree larwen, points are probably the simplest ignition system around. if you wanted to run the magnatron however, you would have to source a B&S flywheel as well and ensure the timing will all line up. honestly I'd go with lawren on this one and save yourself the headache Smile
