First thing was to install a 20HP Onan engine, but unlike the 1655 & 1855, I wanted to keep the engine directly shafted to the hydro transmission. This involved cutting the chassis rail & dropping it almost 2" to align the shaft to engine. I welded in gussets to strengthen the new joint. If you look to the left of the oil filter you can see the dropped joint.
