Some more pics of a work in progress...
Installed the blades onto the deck today (painted them a couple days ago), touched up the bolts & underside of the deck with black paint, took a couple pics. The deck is not installed yet as I would have hoped; ran into a snag, no deck belt.
Had to install a new inner tube in the right rear tire. The used one I had was leaking at a previous patch job. I have a '92 Signature 2000 up for sale with 2 new inner tubes & severely cracked "new" tires (long story), so I used one of the tubes on the Yard Man & set the other one aside for now. I removed both rear wheels/tires from a spare transaxle I had & installed them on the Signature 2000. I swapped both front tires/wheels from another Signature 2000 project I have (a '91), to make the tread patterns match on both tractors. One has Turf Savers, the other has Turf Mates. Before, they were both mismatched.
Long day, hot sun, lots of wind.
But I did manage to take some pics. Enjoy.
