Worked on restoring the seat today. removed corrosion primed. The seat wasn't painted under the foam and was rusted. I removed the vinyl and foam, Im going to dye it yellow to keep the original seat.

 

Started priming the rims.

 

Lots of work still to do

JD used a buff colored primer under the yellow as a bit of FYI.  The red primer might mess with the yellow.  A simple coat or two of buff over the red will make painting the yellow easier and keep the color more correct.  Excellent work!!!

Wow didnt know that, wish I wouldnt have primed them with the red. Maybe I can get it off the old yellow was still there should have just painted over it. Hope it dont screw it up.

 

I might try and paint one yellow tommorow to see how it looks! Maybe it will turn out correct

Painted rims today JD yellow, put 3 coats turned out great, installed 2.

Also installed rear main drive belt. Belts are difficult in order to remove the rear one you have to take the bolts out of the pulley and remove it,
The front one Main Belt Im trying to replace it I cant get the  PTO guard out of the way far enough to get the new belt on.  I might have to remove the engine to get this belt on? The maintenance manual says to remove the guard doesn't tell you how to get it out of there. Any body change the front drive belt and mower deck before? advice

I can only speak to the RF machines - while it was a pain to do it was possible to change the front belt without removing the engine.  There was a belt guard that required removal and some major twisting of the belt but it was possible.  Got any pics of the offending area? Those would help me figure things out.

There is a retainer bracket on the bottom of the block that enables you to remove the PTO pulley and clutch. Once removed the belt is easy to slide in there. Its just 1 bolt to remove the retainer. You don't have to remove the engine at all.

Eric I read your post too late. This was a horrible experience!!

 

But thru trial and error I figured out that it had that bottom retaining brakcet and i removed the outer PTO pulley. Also I had to remove the muffler and side flang to be able to pull that main belt belt guard straight out. I also learned that you have to install the belt on the middle pulley and put the guard back on it first, really hard a bolt way at the top, then you roll the belt on the motor pulley (Not easy either alot of tension) if you dont put that middle belt guard on first the tension positions the pulley where you cant get the bolt in I had to take the belt back off the main pulley and then install the pulley guard and bolt.

 

The rear main belt aint is bad, just pull the pulley off the tranny 3 Bolts install belt and but bolts back in pulley.

 

I installed the new mower belt on the PTO just have to figure out how to route it.

 

This pic is after I put Dewey back together and shows my new JD $65 headlight blank off platejd.jpg
