OK QUESTION TIME>>>>>>

I let this all sit way too long, I have the seat pan back on the S16h, but can't remember how the 8 pieces of seat brackets and tracks is supposed to fit back together.  my NH is 30 miles from here (best reference, I think it has same seat setup) while the GT19 with its metal seat pan has a whole different setup. been looking all over Ebay, here, Google and more... all the ones that I see that I think have this setup are "buried" by the seat itself, cant see any details.  I do see some U shaped  seat springs on some online pix of some of the GT models.... not what I have here.

 

Does someone have a pic or 3 that they can throw up here to refresh my memory so I can get a seat back onto this machine?  I have the setup wth the 1/4" metal rods and the slots/grooves in brackets that are about 1/2 the length of the seat tracks themselves.

Uh, sorry, I didn't get out to the shed last night. Once it gets light out I will this morning.

ok, that helps, thanks. Not at all how I thought it went. I originally bolted the rails that must be under the pan (because they aren't in your picture)  to the top of it and the L brackets piggybacked to them....

The rails on the bottom of the pan sit down on the brackets over the fuel tank.

yeah I have been able to figure that much out, since I asked for pix, I searched around again,  I saw one that another member had posted of an Ariens with the seat pan flipped up.  that's the proble, when something is torn apart for too long... CRS creeps in, and it seems that with each project, it does so faster than it did on the last project......

ok... tomorrow a seat will go back on... had to re sandblast the bracket system as the can of paint I used said "recoat within 2 hours or after 2 weeks" well the 1st time I painted, I put the color on just before bedttime then recoated the next day after work, a spread of about 18 hours and it wrinkled badly.... (even though it "dries to touch" within an hour... so I blasted them bare again and just painted them, gonna go look at them 1 more time before I hit the sack and if there's any primer showing I'll hit it again then..... I hate redo's no matter how minor a project.
