Maybe bring the shifter rod straight up and through the fender and make the linkage on the outside of the fender cover. Pretty cramp in there now. Probably going to have to notch the belt tensioner arm too because it looks like it might hit the shifter rod for the transaxle when shifting gears.

Yeah, all true words. Got the shifter done yesterday, but the last days i ca'nt upload any pictures, because my fu**ing Onedrive now uploads the pictures, but if you want to copy them for the post, they say error Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I will try to upload the updates

Wiring work

The new ignition lock and the socket were'nt on there stock, so i need to fit them



Cutout for the ignition switch



Cutout for the Socket



The old wiring Harness wo'nt fit anymore, and i wanted to remove the safety kill switches, so i cut the stock harness, and modded it, to fit the new applicatiions. To protect the wires, i put them in some garden hose.



I started to install the new harness



I modded the stock 5 terminal ignition lock plug to fit the new one

some more work on the mower

I made a ventilation plug for my MST out of brass on my metal lathe



To the sideways hole the ventilation tube will attach



Here is where it will work




Now i welded up my pulley. I used the inner part from the stock MST pulley, and a old metal idler pulley, removed the old bearings

that’s a really need ventilation plug. how was it held in the transaxle ? The cut outs look really nice and the garden hose is a pretty good idea. I just don’t think it’s rated for a very high temperature so I’m not sure how it will hold up next to the engine block.

the garden hose is a good idea bit in the low areas it will hold water, make some drain holes in it so if you do get water in it, it will drain

I also like the water hose idea. It would be pretty rugged and protect the wires.

The plug only is press fitted in there with a bit of engine gasket maker. Thanks. i will see if it held up, but it held up siting outside in the sun, there it is getting warm, and there i think it wo'nt be hot.

Everything is connected + a few Mockup Ideas

I need a front bumper....
What's about those massive steel pipe?





I like the Idea, but think, those pipe is too massive and too big.


What's about the Muffler? I like the spot, and want to use those old GDR fire extinguisher.




And here are a few pictures about the wiring (until now i have no cable shoes, so i only wrapped the wires around the terminals)











How do you like the arrangement of the switches, levers, ....?

Switches and levers are in great locations.

I don't think that steel pipe is too big for a front bumper.  I think it's a great size.  I would shorten it some.

I hope underneath those taped wires there's soldered connections and not just two wires twisted together.

Looking good. I don't think that pipe is too big, it should be fine if you cut it down some. Have you made any progress on the muffler made out of the fire extinguisher? I'd like to see that. The dash looks really well laid out and should be easy to use.

I think on one of Chud327's recent videos, he stuck a fire extinguisher over the exhaust pipe on his mower and it sounded like a diesel. I think that would be neat.

Shifter done

If you remember, i made earlier a shifter, but that worked very bad. The shifter would hit the belt, and to shift was vey hard.

The Stock MST shifting lever thing would hit the belt, so i made this straight one



To get some threads on my shifter i machined down a bolt and welded it on.



the Shifter has a pivot point, to shift the gears in the right order. (reverse backwards, forward gears forward)





And here you can see how the shifter is connected to the transaxle.







Next thing were to make the cutout in the fender for the shifter



as you can see it works very well, and i can shift the gears easily and in the right order.







i wrote the gear pattern on the fender to knew which gear i'm using right now



I hope you like my shifter, i think that is a good setup, because you do'nt have much room there, and on the right side i have the mower deck lifting lever, so i needed to use the left side.
