That is looking sweet! Man I wish I could find a LF! 
 
So I gotta ask, how is the Costco Light Beer I see in the back? I've been tempted every time I go to Costco and see it...

That is looking sweet! Man I wish I could find a LF! Love the costco light beer, its my favorite. There is a 1250 for sale in Seattle.

?????????????????????????????

 

If you are talking the 15" wheeled Large Frames that is correct.

 

However, if you have the 12" wheels they will work just fine.

thanks, I am finding zero large frame attachments out here. I want a front blade but the only one I have found is that one that requires the two spool system that I do not have.

If you have acid leaking you better get the baking soda and hose off everything ! Battery acid makes a mess!

Do you have the battery hold downs in place? any chance it caught the  starter pulley or just vibrated a hole underneath from not being tied down?

battery was very secure It was secured with the two bars with wing nuts and a thick rubber bungee. I left town for a couple of days and right before we left I had the hood open as i had just spotted the oil leek from the dipstick. The battery was not leaking then.I did get everything cleaned up after seeing it last night. The acid stripped my paint off of the frame. It looks like the battery popped open at a factory seam.
