It will at least be mid-winter before I can even think of the mod, but I will take lots of pics if/when I do!

O.K. now the hand hydro does have a good use (even though many would SCREAM "NOT SAFE") I really like one of mine that has that because when I'm spreading mulch along momma's flowers and lilac lane I can move from plant to plant pulling the mulch trailer without climbing on and off the tractor by just holding the lever forward for a few feet. I would be on my keester for sure if I tried that with a foot pedal. :bigrofl:

Since getting this 430, I've not had much time to work on it, but have done a few things. New deck belt, as the old was worn so bad there was no tensioner pressure at all. Now mows like mad! I put new fender pan rubber mounts on, so now it's firm again. The only operating issue is an annoying surge/slowdown, which I believe may be a worn connection up front in the hydro control linkage. When I had the fender pan off, I checked the rock shaft connection. I think the glow plug timer isn't sending voltage to the plugs, so if that is the case, I'll just add a momentary switch to operate them.

Okay, that's better. I was starting to think you were shrugging off the green and yellow team around your place. :bigrofl:
