That looks like a big teardown job! Also looks like you have a nice shop to do it in, I'm jealous of that center floor drain lol.

Been there, done that... But on a 540 B power shift Skidder! And it came to me literally In milk crates.
Hardest part was the steering valve plumbing.. Holy bent tubes Batman!!
Becareful on re assembly of the center castings!! Check them real good for cracks, i have seen many broken in half from this. Good luck.

Planning on going threw it cleaning it up fix what needs fixed.   The track frame has been cracked and the finals have to where going to get the biggest part put together then just have it sandblasted.  Al the welds will probably just go over clean them up

Looks like you are getting right into it.I had a 440 gas at one time but the tracks were so worn out that I didn't get any seat time before I sold it.

That looks real nice. Get a pic with you(or something) beside it so we can 'see' the size of it.
