Update: engine mounted and running. Next steps are to get hydraulic pump hooked up, then get the hood and grill fitted!!

Listen to that exhaust!

Small update by the picture, but lots of work! I managed to get the grill and hood retro-fitted without having to rebuild it at all. I made some cutouts where the new engine valve covers stick out. I had to make a new mounting bracket for the grill as some of the supports were cut off during the engine replacement. Only a few things left before I can actually put it to use!

So I spent to whole day trying to finish up on this tractor. Mufflers are on, hydraulic pump is on, new bracing for the front attachments are done as well. The one thing that i'm wondering about is engine rpm All I did in terms of throttle is attaching the throttle cable to the linkage. Would the governor be set already or do i need to acquire a tach to get this thing at the right operating RPM?
