Getting rid of unnecessary parts and clearancing for the shifter on the clutch assembly.

Test fitting stuff
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180738

Gonna put a flat idler on the clutch here to pinch the belt kinda, like a double pulley clutch i guess.
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180739

Cut out a bit for the belt, gonna need an idler too to keep it off the steering. Oh, and the inside of the frame there is gonna need some added support, its a bit flimsy from the bit i cut out.

I'm liking this horizontal shaft conversion so far.  Seem like the hardest part is building the clutch.  Routing the belt seems pretty straightforward.

Yeah, luckily the frame isnt bad for it and the original clutch is pretty easily modded.

The other side came off fine tho lol
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180758

Anyways there's the most of the work. I'm bending up a support now so that piece of frame doesnt break off or something

Support from deck strap thingy
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180760

Think I'm gonna put this idler somewhere here to help clutching action and keep the belt from touching itself

Put the extra idler on. I'm not confident in this many idlers, but i guess we'll see how it goes

Definitely. Hopefully these 3 idlers and the one jackshaft pulley isnt too much for it. It's not too bad when i roll it over, but I'll only really know when i get it running lol. It certainly won't be too much for a gx390...

Well, that's a lot of pulleys that can seize, and it only takes one to ruin the belt.

Reusing the vari drive for the clutch and adding in a couple of idlers seems like a solid way to get rid of that belt twist.  I hope you find a belt that works.

Clutch linkage yay

Normal operation yay
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180765

Hmmmm jam the clutch pedal all the way down to the tire and it kinda inverses the clutch action. Kinda cool that that happens but i dont wanna die so it'll get a clutch stop i guess
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 5 20180766

I stole mutts belt and it kinda works but the belt wont really stop, even if i start her in gear. Makes for fun situations. Guess I'll be getting her an inch or two bigger belt than mutt uses.
