No point doing any body work in case I have to change it out again...
I seem to remember saying something about moving mountains or dragging the islands closer to the US coast.
Actually the three speed transaxle is pretty good . . . but it isn't the strongest Wheelhorse trans out there. Still you got it for a good price and there weren't a lot of choices out there,
Plus I thought you would still be using the 6.7 inch motor. Yes the 9 inch is a bit of overkill for a yard putter. I think I mentioned that also.
I think that if you can set the controller to a slow throttle ramp and stay at 48 volts you should get good service, plus you won't be turning the tractor over every time you stab the throttle. you might want to sneak up on full throttle to keep the front end down..
You for sure want some kind of fender on it, the seat is good enough for now. Get it outside and use it a bit, see what needs changing and what breaks.
I'm still looking over your shoulder.
By the way, all that moving in and out and tearing down and reassembly, did you remember to put in some axle lube?
