Dag nabbit,that's the second thing I screwed up today.Had to put the deck on to check clearance for those brackets,so I decided to make a maiden run with it accross the yard.The cut was really nice and no funny noises,but noticed not much grass was being thrown out the side.Yep,I threw the belt on backwards.

It's ok Greg, Gotcha covered on the typo but can't help you with the belt install from here. Looking good as a RBT though. ;)

AHH, I found it. This is the one with the electric lift. I still like it. Well,I finished up the project today.Not enough clearance under there to use the lift for the deck.I guess it's no big deal.I can still mow without a lift.Will work good for the front blower or anything I want to lift on the back.

Installing running boards on a FDT is like putting training wheels on a motorcycle. :O You should be embarrassed if you need ether of them...LOL. I must admit, ya did a good job though.
