  19. Monday November 24, 2008 • I got this hunk of steel from Briggs when I got the steel tubing and as it was ½ inch thick I had them (Briggs) burn out the notch as my plasma cutter works best to 3/8 of an inch

  20. Monday November 24, 2008 • Here the Transaxle is waiting for the adapter plate • It will be trimmed back another 2 inches and squared up so as to fit flat against the transaxle suspendation
