Any suggestions how to get the pipe plug out of the tranny case so I can check the fluid level.  The protruding tab is broken off flush.  I don't want to drill and easy out for fear of putting chips in tranny.  I've thought of drilling a shallow hole on the circumference and use a punch and try to drift it out...

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Maybe a dremel with a small cutoff wheel to slice a slot in the plug.  Then, with a hand impact wrench & a slot bit, it oughta pop it loose.

Good suggestion, Dan...

 

I took a small punch and hammer to see if I could drift it out.  Turns out the plug is plastic--spun right out.... now I'll just glue or screw a knob on it so I can get to it.

 

I know how to do most of the mechanical things it needs, but the seat pan had a small diesel engine fall on it, and has a large gash and is badly bent on the left side--guess I need to find a good body and fender man...

Well, I finally got it going... had to get it off my trailer so I could.... ahem..... go pick up another tractor--a Sears ST or SS10 with plow, discs, snow blade, mower, and a bad input shaft on the tranny with a Tec 10 repower...PLUS a brand new Sears Snowblower with mule drive for a GT 18---thinking of giving it to mom for Christmas.

 

I had some problems getting the Kohler 482 to run... wasn't getting fuel to the carb.... pulled the carb off to clean it  and ran into a major snag... which I'll discuss in a new thread as I need some major input on it...

 

anyway, put a carb from a K321 on it-couldn't hook up the linkage of course, and gravity fed the gas from a snowblower tank bolted to the dash support and she moved out smartly... hydraulics work, hydro works--gotta get used to the foot shuttle, and the engine runs well.

 

Here's some pics---
