I.m not sure on the pump yet, Lee! Keith is getting me fixed up in that dept. He's had the pump for a bit, waiting for a cutter to come in to make a pulley for it. He made up an adapter for the flywheel for a stub shaft also, so I'm letting him handle how this will all hook together. That's why I posted the pics of the front end again. I need to get my hyd. valve out and see where I want can place it.
That looks real good Kenny-I'm sure you know, but I'll remind you anyway that if you are possibly considering a direct-Lovejoy or Fenner style coupler, pump hook-up, the shafts don't need to be the same diameter--say 1 coupler half 1", + a standard spyder and then the 2nd coupler half at 3/4, 1 1/4 etc.
I also need to look for a better spot for the fuel pump. And I have gotten the exhaust figured out. I'll have to get some different mufflers for it. There is a thread I need to find that had some very promising one's.

Here's a shot of the pump and pulley:
This is crankshaft adaptor:
These show the crank adaptor going on. Great fit:
After studying the pump, I think I can use the two holes per side to run a 3" X 5/16" strap iron across under the engine and mount the pump down in there. This will give access from under for the hydraulic lines. Just have to figure out a way to tighten the belt:
Any and all suggestions will be studied.
Thank you, Keith!

I think it will take a bit longer, Casey. Still have to figure out how to mount the pump and tension the belt.
I have faith in you ,Kenny.You'll get 'er figured out.

If I could have found one of those onans I would have made up the entire pump mounting , but I couldn't find one , and a buddy wouldn't take one out of his Deere so I could no a mock up.

The mount is progressing, just need to get the tensioner figured out. I mounted a plate across the frame at the 4 holes pictured earlier with the pump on the under side of it. Hopefully, I'll have that wrapped up today.
What would be best to clean the reservoir out with? It is plastic. The cap had been removed and some water and nasties are in there. It had a clear fluid, but the pump has what looks to be the red tranny fluid. What would be best to use in this?
