Ditch the hydro trans - those are for mowing only - no good for offroading.

The most important thing you can do until you upgrade the transaxle is make sure it stays clean & the fan is in good shape. Your K46 is known for heat-related problems, but most of those issues stem from grass & debris building up on top of the transaxle, effecting air flow/cooling.

Hydro systems need to be clean and air free internally, clean and free air externally.

An aftermarket cooler/filter can be added if you have external ports/hoses.

Be careful about your battery rubbing on the welds/ metal. I had that issue with my battery when I had to move it on my Gen1 racer. You wont want acid all over the place!

If you see it rubbing, just strap it down tighter and/ or get some foam/ rubber to create some insulation.

Looks like you are making progress! Steering support looks like it will do the job.
