I had my tractors out of the shop at a show this weekend , therefore the shop floor actually had some space. I pushed in a D4-10 I had picked up a year ago for parts into the shed and starting tearing it down. I have several people who need parts (transaxle, clutch springs, etc).

The transaxle was a pretty easy pull. I loaded it up on the JB's forks and took it to the back to pressure wash it. Then started tackling the fenders, dash, etc. I intentionally tried to pull the clutch off without unbolting the motor. No luck, so the motor after taking off the bolts, I was able to pull the motor forward and pull the part of the clutch I was trying to get to. Tomorrow the motor comes off and will be put on the shelf.

Glad to see you're getting some time for yourself.  I know this time of the year is insane in your occupation.

Scott, are you parting out that Wisconsin?

Ben probably not. I was going to put it on the shelf as a back up. I have one bush hog with a broken rod. I probably will need this motor to get the other one going. Do you need any part in particular? I actually had another D4-10 that is also on the "tear down" list. It too has a Wisconsin TRA-10D in it. Right now not sure which of these motors is the "best". But one of them is going in the first Bush Hog I bought (was an expensive lesson to learn- paid too much and about the only positive I can say is that it has a good rear end, I met some nice GT members, and about every part on it was painted red so I guess the metal has been protected from rusting any more. :D )

Good to see you getting some shop time in the middle of your CRAZY season. I hope you can find more time to keep working in the shop.

Thanks for the pictures. I've never seen the insides of a BH before. They are certainly built differently then most GTs. The transmission/rear end and clutch arrangement doesn't look like the standard Peerless setup.

Glad you got some GT time! Hate to see things parted, but sometimes you just gotta do it!

What style clutch is hiding in that bell-housing?

Here is a few shots- I think Economy tractors may use something similar to thisImageUploadedByTapatalk1399308831.893458.jpg
