As of now the forward sweep axle, 3 spool valve from a JD, and 3ph from the massey will be used.  Everything else is in the air.  Id like to sell and trade what I don't need.  Working with an extremely tight budget.  House and vehicle repairs are bumped ahead of the list.  I do know ill need a power steering valve and cylinder as this build will have power steering.

 

Looking at the frames I have I think building one from 4" channel might be the best way to go,  With the travel and ease of dismounting the deck from the 990 I want to use this set up.  My 4" frame would just have to be the same width as the 990 frame to mount the factory lift setup.

The WH axle frame and trans would be a good start, what do you need to build a frame for?

The WH frame isn't long or wide enough for the 990 deck carriage and deck.  If I built the frame I could build it so the hydro fit inside it unlike the wh frame which has the hydro sitting behind it.  With the hydro in the frame I will have good mounting for the 3ph.

If it were me, I would horse trade some of those parts you mention you have lying around for the parts needed to put the 990 back into service.  I am sure there is people here with the parts you need that may be interested in something you have.  Might be easier then trying to reinvent the wheel here.  Sorry about your hand by the way.  I smashed my right hand with a forklift once.  It was not fun.

With what I want to do I think its going to be better to built from scratch.  I think this will be a WH based machine.
