Got to do some work today in between helping my son with his motorcycle. I have changed the oil and oil filter in the engine. I got a new hydro oil filter, put some oil in it and on the seal and screwed it on. I installed the main pulley. Put some anti-seize lubricant on it and it went on pretty easy. I put some blue loctite on the set screws. I also installed the electric clutch. The pulley and the clutch were from the donor motor. I started it up and the pulley spins smoothly. Have not yet put any load on anything or tried the clutch. I have also started working on the seat. I have parts form 3 different seats. Between the 3 I hope to build a useable seat. I am starting with the seat mounting plate from the burned mower because it is the straightest. The cushions will come from the donor mower. Hopefully they will look a little better on some straighter metal parts.

Hi John, Sounds like quite a find. I probably would've done the same thing. Good luck with the rebuild. I have to tell you that while it may not always be what most people would call fun, it really can be quite rewarding.

No need to apologize John. This can be the SCAG rebuild thread. Actually one of your pictures confirmed for me how the throttle cabling should be routed. I missed taking that picture before I disassembled. I also note that whomever pulled the original engine on this was pretty neat. Left all the stuff that needs to be attached right there. Looks to me like with an engine it'd be ready to go pretty quickly. If you need any parts along the way let me know as I've managed to accumulate a few extras.
