Well, I got it most of the way torn down this afternoon. Didn't really run into anything thay looks like it will be a major problem. Hardest part was getting the steering wheel off(as usual). I decided to take the flywheel off to check the stator. Glad I did;there was a mouse nest right next to the cooling fins. The stator looks fine, don't think that's why it discharging. I am goingto wash the engine. Will it hurt the stator if it gets some water on it?
Hood and grill off.
Fender pan off.
PTO switch was rusted solid. I have another one for it though.
I think a lot of the oil leakage is the coming from the crankcase breather.
Hour meter is in pretty good shape. It was working. Show's 260 hours, but its probably been around once or twice.
Getting ready to pull the engine.
This was the worst ISO mount. They were all pretty bad though.
Mount's were so bad it wore a hole through the flywheel shroud.
Mouse nest right next to the cylinder.
Stator looks okay.
