That is going to eye-popping when you get it back together. Looking forward to more pics as this comes together. Nice work!

The mower frame is put back together, I'll touch-up the paint after it's mounted. The engine tins are painted and ready to put back on. I decided to go ahead and change out the hydro fluid. Soon as I popped the cover there was a little bit of water that came out. The rear looks good though. Got the front tires on the rims,and got them painted.

Looking great!!! The differential appears to be in very good shape. The hydro oil doesn't look half bad either.

Thanks guys. I was going to change out the filter but it is STUCK. I tried ever trick I know to get it off but it won't budge. I'm going to just pull the whole rear end out tonight so I can get the filter better. While it is out I will clean it up, paint it and plus look at the truniun since it is a bit loose.

nice rebuild, that tractor looks nice, I so want an 82 series...just because. :D

I too like the heavy rust primer, got use it thin though as it builds pretty quick and can glob.

Yeah, that stuff go on thick. I used it on my entire jeep build so i've bought a case or two... The 82 series has to be one of the nicest looking GT's out there. Here's you a 782D... http://www.ebay.com/...=item2a298a8cd4

I decided to clean up the grill so I stripped off the old paint, polished up the aluminum, masked off the silver parts and painted. Put the front wheels back on.

I cleaned and primed the brake parts, they'll be painted tomorrow.

That's going to be a nice looking tractor when you get done with it! I like the looks of those models!

Breaking for lunch and figured I'd upload some progress pic's. I literally had to destroy the hydro filter to get it off. Finally got the rear end cleaned up and closed up. Brake parts are painted. Front clip is put back together. I used Rustoleum black bedliner as the paint on all of the black parts. It has so much sheen to it that the grille almost looks like it doesn't have anything on it. It looks good in person though.

That hydro filter looks like it took a beating. At least you weren't trying to get it off with the rear still in the tractor. Looks like you had a nice sunny day for washing it up. Thanks for the update.

Rear end is ready to be bolted back up. Some one decided it was a good idea to make the top two bolts that hold the axle tubes on go all the way through... These two bolts also hold the axle to the frame... These two bolt holes are also below the fill line for the rear end.

Yeah, I don't have band style filter wrench and I can usually get them off by hand but this one was stupid tight. Actually the filter is the reason I pulled the rear end. I'm glad I did thought because it was pretty nasty and needed to be cleaned up.
