Pic showing the new seat installed and the old (very thin) seat leaning up against it.

Had a TOUGH time getting that seat off.
Followed the advice to unbolt the spring with the seat, so I could attack it easier.
Tried cold chisel, when I finally got it off I could see the chisel only made it maybe a third through.
Got it off by just pounding on the nut with a sledge hammer.
I did think about ordering a new spring but eventually the nut popped off.

Tractor Supply had a pan seat, but the bolt was bigger than the hole in the spring and I wasn't looking forward to trying to enlarge the hole.

They did have the "universal seats", which I was skeptical of, but it did say there were many ways to bolt it on (the spring had 3 holes in it and it did bolt on fine).

Got it home and I wasn't thrilled when I opened the box and there was no mounting hardware and zero instructions.

However I must say it seems well designed, for the most part, and I was able to figure it out and get it mounted. I did have to make sure it was as far back as I could get it, otherwise very hard to get on the seat, and I'm under 200 lb. It does have an adjustment for your weight, from "110 lbs" to "265 lbs", I guess to customize the bouncy bouncy. Lever under the seat to pick how far front/back you want it, then another bolt to lock in the setting. I like how the seat swings back to make it easy to get on.

I doubt that vinyl/foam will last 60+ years like the original did, but I will enjoy it, I think.

(BTW That thing on top of the hood is just a radio from Tractor Supply, which I enjoy very much)
