I worked on the poor mower deck today. I sand blasted it and got it ready to weld the many cracks. The center arbor hole was broken up pretty bad and I found a reinforcing ring off an old AC 60 pull type combine that fit perfectly so I will weld that in to beef it up. I also discovered that all the baffles underneith were gone. I don't know if I will try to find those as I don't think I will do much mowing with this one. They look like a real chore to get off so I don't want to ask anyone to do that. If I run cross a deal I might some day. I am waiting on some motor parts and then I can get that back together. I guess it is about time to order tires and decals.

Yeah, that deck could use a little TLC. Sounds like you have a plan to bring it back to life.

Dan, I can take a couple of pics of my deck and some measurements if that would help. IDT that deflector piece would be all that hard to fab.

Got the rear roller assembly from Jdslednut tonight and got them all cleaned up and primed. My son who is much better with a mig welder than I am welded most of the cracks in the deck tonight. We still have some more work to do on it but I have to make a plate to fill in a hole. He welded the reinforcing ring in the middle arbor hole and I got all the welds ground down. Things are coming along just fine with the deck.

Dan, I should be able to get up to my deck tomorrow or Thursday. Are pics with strategically placed tape measures OK?

Worked on the deck tonight as I puttied in some welds and a corner that I had to weld a piece in. I also put the bearings in the arbors and put them back together. It was to hot to do much as it was 100 here today and the shop is not air conditioned.

I decided to get all the painting done today that I could. I painted the deck and all it's parts plus most of the motor parts. Now all I have left is the the steering riser and the motor block. As soon as my gasket set comes in I can get the motor back together. Then all I have to do is wait for the riser to come back from the chrome shop and I can start putting it all back together. It was a very warm day to be painting and doing anything is the shop.

Holly cow, I got the bid price back from the chrome company today. 2 side grill parts, lift handle, steering column, seat rail, hood bolts. $963.00 The guy said if I wanted to do the sanding prep he would reduce the price and would show me how to do it. I think I am willing to do some of the hard work for that price.

Dan, I finally got those pics for you. Geez, I'm sorry it took this long.

The fuzzy ones. KK was taking pics while I was holding tape measures, blame her. Anything I missed or better angles, It's dug out now, let me know.

You might look into the faux chrome that Olcowhand did a while ago. It turned out pretty well.

I think it was an article, let me try to find it
