The Craftsman lawnmower I purchased this summer is nearly finished and running absolutely great. I still need to finish the seat and get all the vinyl cut for the Craftsman logo’s as well as the dash information. Next summer I will start the process of converting the lawnmower to EFI and possibly electronic ignition as well. I am not 100% sure as to what will be controller the lawnmower but it will likely need to be something a little more powerful than an Arduino. Even the Arduino Mega will likely not have the processing power or memory storage needed for the project but it should work out to be a great proof of concept and learning tool.
