    You can loosen the back plate to let the oil out . use an air nozzle and shoot a little air in from the fill/vent cap to remove all the bad oil. You need no more than 2 oz of oil.

    Replacement seat came in today. It is a lot nicer than I expected!





    I figured I might as well paint the seat brackets while I was at it.

    Nice Peter,

    The rate you're going your 1700 will become show room ready to the point you would not want to get any mud on it. Looking good.

    Pete, from what I've seen, lots of folks would love to have your old seat. It's only cracked and a bit rusty on the pan. I'd bet it would sell on eBay or as a freebie on craigslist. I've seen lots of them with half the padding missing and the pan is solid rust.

    Good idea Jim. I'll see if I can find it a new home.

    Got the brackets and new seat installed



    I spent a good 2 hours in it mowing my lower field, and it does have quite a bit more spring/cushion to it than the old.



    Also got the new muffler in. I had to modify it slight to make it clear the hood.



    Given the diameter of it, going back to vertical was the only option as it would hit the alternator in the horizontal position. It does seem a bit more quit compared to the skinny muffler on it before.

    Lol, I knew someone would comment on that.

    I had rim guard put in the tires on my JD tractor last week at the dealer, and he gave me a really good deal on 4 of those weights. Don't worry, they will be painted blue, and I got the 2 original ones (already painted blue), that will go on the outside of the JD weights, thus hiding that deer logo. The reason they are not on there right now is that I need to grind down the "hook" part some before they will slide onto the bumper.

    I have had my muffler in a horizontal position for 30 years and am still on the original parts. However I ran mine to the rear and put it between the fender and tire and extended to an inch or two past the fender. The downside is I can not enter or exit on that side but the benefit is all the fumes are out the back and never a problem to breath in or out. Never a worry about rain water entering the muffler or having it get caught on over head brush or limbs. I wouldn't ever change it back to vertical.

    I agree. I would like to go back to horizontal again. I took another look, and it turns out that not only is the diameter of the new muffler larger, the elbow is shorter. So I loose a full 2" of clearance, making it just about impossible to go horizontal. I'm going to contact the seller to see if maybe the one he sent me was a fluke. Definitely not OEM fit.





    Sure, I can have someone cut it and add an extension, but then I might as well have just kept the old one and had someone do the same (cut and re-weld at the proper angle without adding an extension).
