That's awesome! Haven't been around here for a while, but just dropped back in to ecorenovator and found this cool project. Gotta say finding a motor is the hardest part. If the one you have is permanent magnet, don't bother with a controller. Use a contactor and continue to use the transmission to change the ground speed. You'll just have to change voltage and/or pulley and belt sizes to get the same speed the Briggs had.

I've finally resigned to sandblasting my E15 elec-trak "basket case" myself and using regular paint (powder coating shops around here cost 3-10 times what they do in the rest of the country). I've got most of the parts, but have a LONG ways to go...I am trying to put together a restoration album, though.
