Yes, I love the use of the MC parts. Very nice fit and not in the way.
Converting hand control to foot control.

Ray, can you feel where the retard detent position is on the foot control? Or does this tractor have a travel control valve built in?
This is my wife's tractor and our new property down in Indiana is a little hilly so I put a travel control valve on this shortly after I got it.
When using the pedal for forward and reverse, you can "feel" when it is in the neutral detent position.
One question, is it hard to lift the pedal up to go backwards?
Using the foot pedal for reverse wasn't any problem with my steel toed work boots on.
However, it does take some upward pressure on the pedal for reverse and I think it would make the top of your foot sore with regular shoes on.
I left the hand control lever in place and I found it is easier to use the hand lever for reverse rather than trying to put my foot under the pedal every time.
So, down for ahead and foot under the pedal to lift up for reverse? Just woundering, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. Noel
That is correct.
The big advantage is the tractor now has much better speed control.
When using the old hand lever, it would stay in whatever speed position that you set it.
You had to take your hand off the wheel and move the lever if you wanted to go slower over a rough area or around something.
Pushing down on the pedal controls the forward speed and if I want to slow down I just let up on the pedal and the return spring pulls the pedal back up.
T speed back up, I just push the pedal down again and I never had to take my hand off the steering wheel.
