The lights were so caked with grease and oil from the leak that I figured they were burnt out at first. Little bit of goop cleaner and some elbow grease and they look like new.
She is running like a champ and I picked up some puff paint chrome that I and going to use on the intake and carb and some dirrect to metal high heat for the muffler to complete the engine work.
Next it looks like I am going to have to find a small block v8 to mount in this thing. That 6pac looks wicked with the stright pipe stack and all! I would have to install a lock out line with breaks for the front so I could sit in my driveway and do burnouts.
Going to start some of the minor body work this winter as I have time and work on rebuilding the deck for next season. Next year will be a repaint and she should be good as new.

I've seen where people use their rear wheels as a cast and make a cast concrete wheel weight, I plan to do that with my MTD 990. Just be sure and include some sort of reinforcement in the concrete.

I made rim mounted brackets that take weight lifting plates and made use of plates I already had as well as more I bought at yard sales. I have about 175lbs/wheel on my 2320 using a larger version of the GT brackets I built.

Heres some pics of the GT brackets for 12" wheels and the last pic is the 2320 which has a larger version for 16.5" wheels. You just slide the weight plates on and there is a bolt threaded into the ned of the 1" round to secure them in place.
