I need to make a better mount since i cracked this one when it was on a different mower but it is a pvc end cap for 3.5" " pipe with a hole drilled out to fit the intake and vent holes, then mounting pattern. the air filter fits over the pipe and ect.

Well got this beast out of the woods and was startoing to change the tires back to turfs and realized that when i flipped it it torqued the front tranny mouint and completely busted the bolt mount off and made this thing toast. I will probably save the frame for a build off idea and put the engine on something else Murray wide body "racing" mower Img_2069

I beat the heck outta my 820, surprisingly it was still solidly mounted when it blew half the case off. Safe to say, they're pretty sturdy, til they're not Murray wide body "racing" mower 1098998679 Murray wide body "racing" mower 2664539216

I have one guy near me with a yard full of mowers, I've bought a bunch of good stuff from him lol. I figure if I ever blow an MST he has probably 10 laying around I could buy.

lol! Now that I think of it, a friend not too far away has a junkyard of atvs, dirt bikes, probably mowers, and pickups and stuff like that. Might ask them for something, the atvs would be useful for a lot of parts.

You guys should see the mower junkyard that I got my Peerless 600 from. I swear there's one of every lawn tractor ever made there. And it's all for sale!! Haha.

Lol, would be nice if I could find one like that! I mostly need a frame for the rear-end of the Roper, but it would be nice to know we could blow up our trannies and not worry about not finding another!!!
