Hahahaha! Yes, I agree with you on that 80's steering wheel.Thanks for the tips Brian!
Someday I will restore the mower deck just for show. I won‘t ever mow with it. I have a 60” Ztrak for mowing.
I am working on the throttle cable now, I have it soaking in Liquid Wrench. Once I can get the wire moving then I will see about pulling it out.
I have seen those steering wheels at Hapco and a few other places. Gonna have to get one because that 80s vintage wheel looks horrible on there!
