here you can see the lock collars E.C.Sells 4.95 and I use them outside each axle bearing like in the pic to keep axle in place, both sides of wheel hubs and both sides of brake and sprocket hubs. In this build case the brake hub is against the bearing hub so it only required one side. A total of 9 on this setup where I usually use 10.

With the rear axle in and brake mounted and I am happy with all that I moved the the tranny pulley belt guides while I got it all upside down. Here you can see how I do my belt guides. I weld flanged nuts to the plate and then I simply screw bolts in for my guides.

Here is a good view of the flanged nuts welded in place. The setup also makes for a fast removal setup if you are in a hurry.

here is an overall view of rear axle in place, with tranny pulley and clutch and guides in place. Also notice the center of the running board rod is cut out as described in earlier details. This gives wide open access to everything.

Now on the top side of the chassis with the axle and wheels on I turn to working on fender mount and seat mount for wheel clearance. Anyone taking a mtd apart or knows them knows the full fenders are mounted on a channel type pedestal. I reuse these. I cut the factory seat bracket the inside width of these pedestals.

Now this is an example of my building taking over and me not getting the pictures I wanted. But here you can see where I have added a 1" square tube to the top of the regular feander mounts. And you can see how I have welded the cut seat mount flush with the top of the tubing.

here is a better view of what I have done. You can see at the rear where I added an upright support with same size tubing. Fender will bolt down on top of all this and seat will bolt into the slotted grooves where it gives you the ability to slide the seat forward or backwards the original amount. ALL legal and great for fine tuning the handling of your mower. Fenders will still bolt into the original holes in the running boards giving the appearance they havn't been moved. I will get pictures of this up to show you.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly
proclaiming . . "WOW ---What a Ride
