The mow pack is completely together and awaiting decals!!!! :bounce:

 

Installed all new bearings seals and drive chains, amazing what some new parts will do The whole unit moves effortlessly by spinning it with your hand before it was a bit crusty and tough to turn :D

 

Still need to find a new factory rear wheel as the one is bare :(

Thanks!

That would be great, no aftermarket made today is comparable to the sprocket they used :(

Looks very nice Doc., Can you find the proper wheel assembly and attach the gear to it?

Its possible but would be a bit dicey with the cheap thin steel on todays wheels. I would like to have an extra on hand in case I screw up :D

If one photo, it almost looks like the gear can move from side to side on the hub? I would find a matching gear and have it mounted on the new wheel. Do you know what pitch the gear is?

Looking good Brian. Hopefully you can find a wheel without too much difficulty.
