Thank you for the vid.
Yes, i agree. John deere really sucks. so does kohler, for that matter. i would have replaced it with a briggs anyway. the kohler had too many wires and cables and such i really did not want to mess with it.
Unfortunately for me, im on a very tight budget. This sabre was really the best out of all of them. my other option would have been a craftsman LT4000 AWS with a 6spd peerless 930. It had a stamped frame though and pretty light duty steering and axles. (The mowers were both free, my buddy (craftsmanquad19) took the craftsman. He has the twin to the engine that is going in mine)
Yes, i have a welder(at least access to one)
right now im pretty occupied with tearing out the hydrostat pedals and all the linkages. i will use the clutch pedal and the forward pedal, but to make things simpler i am tearing them out and creating more simpler designs for them so that there arent cables and ***** going everywhere.
Once i find an 820 (it needs to be an 820 because i have hubs for 1" axles and the next step down, an 8o1 has 3/4" axles. i dont wanna get new hubs and i wanna keep the original rims. I have tires for them already.
Thank all for your advice
