I have them drawn in autocadd but i havent printed them out yet. All is going to be black. I attached a photo of the red ones hood sticker for ref. I found an old 50's sale brochure that i am going to follow that design which was slightly different. Also i saw one for sale in original paint (interesting that is the next serial# up from the red one) it had the same hood decal but the side hood script was all red and no decals on the floor sides (mark 1 in a box). There is shift pattern decal too.
Also watch your motor mounts brackets. The one i got from you was welded and my red one was welded in the same spot. The engine really bounces around i put bigger bushings in the first one which helped. Let me know i will have the guy print another set if you want when i get them.
Looking forward to seeing the decals on your restoration.
I'd like to know more about the issues with the motor mount brackets. I have a couple 6hp moto-mowers that are roughly the same and would like to know if there's something I should be looking out for.

I plan on using solid metal bushings and not rubber to keep the engine from bouncing around. A little vibration is ok with me.

Jableman, you didn't have the decal printed on a chrome back round?

My throttle was already on the frame cover. I have not decided what I am doing with the rear of the hood, but I guess I should figure it out soon.
