Kenny, You did very well on this one Ole Buddy. I bet you'll have it up and running in no time. Did you get the spare transaxle?

I have the transaxle, plus a bunch of belts, idler pulleys, pulleys, and various other things for it.

 

Kenny, you've now had plenty of time to get that thing fired up!   Where's the video?   :smilewink: 

Sorry, no video. My phone died(needed recharged). But, as of 11:00 AM, it ran! Tightened the hyd. filter and filled it full. Mowed about 3 acres with it this afternoon. I ain't had this much fun in a while. I love it!!! It's a blast to operate! Can't see tearing it apart, it works too good! Had several issues to get fixed before I turned the mower on, but it is SWEET! This thing mows!

Here's some pics of it working:

Well I wasn't kidding!  I figured he'd get her going.  Kenny, the same thing happened to me when I bought my first JD F935.  Bought it to snatch out the engine for a tractor project.  Made the mistake (no mistake at all really) of getting it running/driving to test the engine.  Once I got to mowing with the thing, there was NO WAY that I was tearing that machine apart!  Now I have two of them! 

  Congrats to making it to the "Mega Mower" world of front mowers!  You will never regret this purchase!   :dancingbanana:

Thanks, guys! It needs a bit of TLC yet & I've spent about $100 so far on the small stuff. But it is awesome to mow with. Yeah, you get less seat time, but it's a lot more fun on this. I need to change the oil & filter, get a new air filter, & do something about that fan across the top of the engine. It is missing half of one blade and is out of balance. I have a small electric fan, may look into hooking it up. The alternator mount has been broken and welded back up, only crooked. Got to straighten it up as that belt runs the water pump. I think it needs a new ignition switch, can not get it to turn over through it. Hour meter isn't working either and it won't shut off with the key.

Had an issue with the fan support. This fan is on a shaft that is belt driven at the flywheel end. The support at the front had broken welds and the PO had repaired it several times. Thought it was time to start over.

First order of business was erecting the new 12X12 "shade tree". I got this for $50 at TSC on clearance:

Here's the old brace. It was on it's last legs:

This is what I came up with. I think it will do a much better job:

 I know why you moved now. You cleaned everything out at the old place.

 

The Native Americans chased buffalo across the Great Plains... Kenny chases GTs across the Great Plains. :D

Hey, the buffalo are gone! Gotta do something! This one was hiding across the street just over the hill! It helps to ask questions!
