Just found this thread, I have not had a chance to read more then the first page yet though.

Wow Kenny! That thing makes the Ford look rather puny! I don't think the snow blade is homemade, to me it looks like it is from a gravely walk behind? The braketry to mount it is definitely home made though.

Guys... I think he knows he lucked out with a nice seat! It looks like he just wanted to add insult to injury by taking a picture of it!

Thanks, Ryan. It is a monster, that's for sure. It weighs the same as the Ford. Haven't had a chance to do much with it yet, other than look some things over. But I'm in love with it already. It's one of my 'holy grail' tractors and I will enjoy making it look good again.

See the hole next to the tube in that plate, that is an access hole to check fluid level in thetrans axle. It is exactly like the Fords hydro. Same fluid and all. I think it even has a Dukes valve for the hydraulics.
If the oil level were up in that tube you would have SERIOUS LEAKS !!! And maybe worse... a locked up hydro....

Have you uploaded those schematics? I will need to build lower arms for the 3-point and having those to work off would be great.

I believe I have actually but just incase, I will search and make sure if not I will get them on here...

Check the pic in post # 48. I found a drawing for the 3-point and posted it.

Brian, the manual calls for Type F tranny fluid for this unit. I know it has red fluid in it. I'll check that access hole out.

Eaton had SVC bulletin about atf.... don't use it. Use hy-trans hydraulic/transmission fluid! Transmission fluid doesn't have the best lubricity against high pressure wear , like hydraulic pumps can produce, especially piston pumps.

It's my 'holy grail'. I have wanted one of these for quite some time. I don't plan to part with it real soon.

I checked that out, found the service bulletin. Thanks. Also found out the axle seals are the same as the Ford. When I get time, I'll see about changing this fluid out and getting some of the mess cleaned up from the leaks. I'll also be looking for a vent and replace the plastic tube. Lots to do, so little time.

Played with the FF today. He got his tranny fluid and filter changed. I filled it back up with the Wally World Hydraulic and Transmission fluid. Replaced the filter with a NAPA Gold 1259. This thing is filthy under there. Plus I do not have a hydro fan any longer. Not even any remnants of it left. Supposed to have a 7" fan on the drive line. Which has a small u-joint just forward of where the fan should be. Very tight quaters under there.
In the pic above (of the rear) with the tube, I found out the tube goes to the fill hole. There is another tube (attached where the Ford vent is) that goes to a small tank(about the size of a pop can, little bigger).

It was just a bit chilly out there for pics today. Plus they were talking a 30% chance for snow here tonight. That's usually when we get buried. And there ain't a whole lotta room under there for the camera to focus. Guess I could have got a shot of the oil draining.
