Well, got my bumper sorta back on and my lights mounted! They're not wired up yet because I just wanted to see how they look, and I'm quite pleased. Let me know what you think!

Thanks! I haven't looked into it yet, I'm probably gonna keep working on other things on the list before I swap the 600 in. But I'm still gonna do it! Hahaha.

I dont think iver ever seen a mower with decent stock lighting. I know our '10 YTS3000 lights suck (when they work).

Old Sears Suburbans or those with actual "sealed lights" have decent stock lighting. Not far, but decent.

Ok so I didnt work on this thing much at all today like I thought I would, but I went for a nice romp back in the fields and had a hell of a good time! No pictures unfortunately, but next weekend I hope to pull the motor as I have to fix a bad oil leak. Also while the motor's out I'm going to flip the tractor up and do some real good frame bracing and what not. I'll get lots of pictures of that so stay tuned!

Nice! Those frames are pretty weak. Do you ever notice that the hood cannot fit on the dash? That shows you that the frame is flexing.

It used to do that but I think it was the grille not the frame. Earlier in the build, while doing the suspension, I braced the grille and that pretty much fixed it

Thanks man! Yeah, if all goes according to plan, a Peerless 600 will take the place of the F-N-R trans.

No that's the 700 series transmission. The 600's are old transaxles, like the one in my rat rod.


This is a Peerless 600, they're pretty heavy duty!

Naw, the 600's are more of a lawn tractor transaxle, just a little more heavy duty. Vertical shaft 3-speed, I think the transaxles in the Craftsman GT's where horizontal input and had 3-speeds with two ranges.
Either way, they sure didn't put them in 90's MTD's hahaha!
