Thanks, and yeah it's alot of head scratching. Not much to report, other than ordering the hydraulics and talking to a machinist about the engine coupler. I should be starting that Tuesday along with making a grille and some other body panels. I did get a radiator, and paint two of the rear wheels as well.

Dang, its been a while since i updated this thread, shesh. Anyway, the flywheel adapter is all set, and i made my transmission shaft adapter using an old clutch disc and a love-joy coupler. I think ill work out my radiator mounting next since hydraulics are still a ways off budget wise with the bulldozer nearing its usable state. Hopefully be driving this beast around by the spring.:confuse:
