Honda 5518 mid mount to front mount mower conversion

hunky57, I was reading through some old posts last night and dicovered that you successfully did a mid-mount to a front-mount mower deck conversion.

I also read where your deck is worn out and retired and you now use a different machine for mowing duties.

Is there any possibility that you could post some detailed photos of your setup? It would be greatly appreciated. If you want, you can just email me some pics, and I will host them on photobucket and post them up for all to see.

If I can pull this off come spring, I can make my MM52 a front mount and leave my cab on year round. - just take off the doors for summer use. (I'll probably paint my roof white as well!)

Currently, my cab is using the deck lift arm location for the front cab frame mount.

Thanks in advance.
