This after-market seat from A&I Products is available here: http://amzn.to/2FG8XMB This seat will work with many John Deere models. In this video I will show you how to use angle iron to create new hinges. All in all, I think this project turned out pretty well. Thanks for watching, and I welcome your comments or questions.

This video shows the installation of the seat cutoff switch on the John Deere LX178. It also shows the jumper that deactivates the seat switch, however I don't advise you do it for safety reasons.
