Some pictures of the finished B-212 project. I still have to assemble the PTO drive and do some final adjustments, but it's been out of the garage under it's own power.

This show's the seat modificcation I came up with. Late model seat brackets, with Sears seat springs and spring caps. Only one hole needed to be drilled, and it was just an enlargement. The inner holes where simplicity springs usually go, are almost perfect for pattern for the seats from Northern Tool.

You did yourself proud on that one Randy. Very nice work. I like the seat setup and will have to check into the Sears springs for sure. It looks showroom fresh.

Thanks for the kind words. This one was trying. I really felt the lack of time, equipment, and drive, on this one. Some answers to the questions: Mike, the seat springs are from Sears: 124181X is the spring and 124238X is the cover. They are used on many of the AYP/Poulan power riding garden tractors, so they are readily available. I think they were about 3-4 dollars each when I last bought them. The grille and side pieces were just wire brushed, sanded then painted with Duplicolor spray chrome. They look pretty good from a distance. I’ve been trying to find someone to make a set or two of the side plates from stainless steel, but haven’t found someone to do it yet. I know the grille perforated metal is available, at least in plain steel, but it would take a press to recreate the wave stamped in it. The body paint is Aerosol Valspar Equipment Yellow, while the wheels are IH white, both from Tractor Supply. This yellow is slightly darker than the Ace “rust stop” equipment yellow, and seems a little less resistant to scratching. I had used the IH white on the hood of a 7112 and liked the colour, (and had a can left over) so I used it for these wheels. There’s also a little Ace aluminium paint as well. Roy, yes this is the one my daughter and I were working on together. As it turned out, every member of the family has had a hand in it.

Beast of Beauty Randy, great job. like your seat mod also, any spring added to these ole ones has to help in a less then perfectly smooth yard, like mine.
