Hey everyone, just thought i'd update with my progress on this mower. I bought a parts tractor last weekend, an 86 montgomery ward with a 14hp twin. Ive been pulling parts off of it and modifiying them to make them fit my tractor. here are the results so far, hope you like what you see.

this would have come with a 4hp tecumseh. i bought a 4.5, then figured no I'll modify it. Hence the 14hp donor. thanks for checking out my post.

Neat beginings.  I love when people repurpose stuff and do a nice job... makes me wish I was handier.
