I now have the deck in primer. I have also started to paint a few items.

Dude, that sucks. Give it up.


Actually, I just don't want one around that looks better than mine. I think it's a lost cause at this point. That's just too perfect.

That is too school for cool.
You should see my mowing deck looks like frankensteins monster made of patches.
Are you going to mow with it when it's all done? If you're going to put the (a) mulching plate on it, then I got some advice to make it do a nice job... if you're going that way at all.

I made new spacers that go in the middle joint of the scissors lift.
I made them .540 " long so I could add shims between the two
lift bars so they don't rub each other. There are .280" long
spacers in the rear mounting points on the deck. I added
fender washers to the front mounting points on the front
of deck to reduce the sloppy wobble at that spot.
I refinished the wood rollers but they were in good
shape before I sanded off all the dirt and years of use.

That Panzer looks very nice. Great job. You will have a mower that will last another 40 years before too long! They just don't make things to last anymore. Thanks for saving that one.

That looks really good. Do you have any way to spin the thing, like a socket on a drill? What to look for is to spin it and see how the timing belt between the 2 spindles tracks. If it rides up off, then it will rub against the guard when it's all back together. Direction matters, so make sure you're spinning it the correct direction that the engine would. Also, you probably know that the 2 blades need to be turned 90 degrees from each other, and the timing style belt ensures that this never changes.

If you would have any problem with the belt tracking as I did, this is a tough problem because it means that the 2 spindles shafts aren't close enough to parallel to each other. For me, that meant blocks and sledge hammers and all that fun to get them parallel to each other.

Fantastic work! I never thought about putting a bushing between the scissors, but the 1107 works quite a bit different that this deck as your belt comes back to the middle instead of the side. You're going to love the way this mower works.

I bolted the spindles along the 1/4" thick connector plate to the deck and did
all of the welding. I then completely assembled all parts back on deck
and test ran it before doing any additional prep and paint.
I didn't want any supprises after all the work was done
and everything was painted! It ran good but I'll need
to rebore or replace the v belt/timing pulley on the
left because of some runout.

Looks fantastic. I wish I'd seen this before doing my own deck. I'd have done things differently. For one, I wish I didn't give up on the original roller bar and cut up a baseball bat to make rollers which would've looked like yours.
