I made a crossmember to fit in where the BGB used to bolt up. It is 1/4" plate and 1/8"+ wall square tube. Trying to decide if I want it to be welded solid to the rest of the frame work. That's probably best, though.
I need to get the foot/running boards back on to see what issues they may cause. Especially with the foot pedal. So I better get them trimmed to fit. Back in post #42, second pic you can see the lever that controls fwd./rev. just above the 1" square tube about center of the pic. If the foot boards are below the 1", I will have to get real creative to get that to work.
