Couple more little updates.

My hub on the left rear keeps sliding in, but never out thankfully.  So I fabbed up a spacer out of PVC.  Used a thrust washer from the old MST so it doesn't rub into the end of the axle shaft.

I also installed a tach/temp that I am checking out.

Seems to work well.  Time will tell if it holds up.  A few reviews say the waterproof does not work.  Most say it does.  We will see on that.  The temp sensor on this model fits under the spark plug.  There is a version with an oil sensor.  That may have worked well too.
Tach looks nice. By oil sensor, you mean oil level, right? Your oppy is splash, isn't it?

Sorry, the other version had an oil "temperature" sensor instead of under the spark plug sensor.  I was going to opt for that one instead, but I could not figure out the threads.  I feared they were metric and not fit in the extra 3/8" Standard plug hole the oppy has.

Makes sense. I imagine the head would be the best place to measure temp from.

I have been shocked, the running temp so far trolling around the neighborhood has been about 165-179 degrees fahrenheit at the spark plug.

Glamour shots with the new exhaust.

Temp on a 92f day it was 183f.

Looks great! Hard to believe those temperatures are that low. I guess I never saw water boil off a Briggs head though, so 183 isn’t completely unreasonable.

Do you have seat springs?

Thanks! The seat is attached straight to the fenders.  I think I have like 3-4 psi in the rears so that takes more hits than springs would.
