This has been a project that I have vowed to finish this winter ( I think) . Anyways this has a ton of new parts and I have no excuses for not finishing. Rear end all new with NOS parts except bearings and bushings, they are after market. Robert Mann from Sonny's was a huge help and supplied the parts problem free ( it was '08 thou) I was sorry to read of his hardships. The Sundstrand pump went out for a total rebuild (ouch!) and the engine has everything new in it except the block, crank, jugs, and manifolds. yep new cam, valves, springs, tappets, governor, carb, forged pistons and  rods ( that's right forged) oil pump, heads etc.(double and triple ouch!!) tractor has NOS hydro cooler, custom bent SS hydro lines, powder coated engine tins, battery/gas tank bracket, foot rests, firewall, top heat shield & air cleaner. all new bolts, bushings, bearings, races, & seals.

Looking through the pics, I seen something I covet.

 

How do you like having a floor drain? Is it hooked into a storm or sanitary line? Or does it daylight outside? Do you have a trap and/or cleanout on it?

Trapped, ran into storm drain , with a clean out outside because of how it intersects into my drains.

Where did you send your hydro for repair? I may be needing some of that?

Hydrostatict Transmission Repair LLC  Tupelo MS . Pricey but supposed to be good, can't tell you cause I haven't run it yet. BJ Hydraulics in MI told me they no longer rebuild them but put me in contact with who they recommended, (close to their area if I remember)  sorry can't find that info, I'll try to look asap. Have another place I'll post the info Monday if you want

Can't say if he was the "old man" or not , but whoever it was steered me to the other place phone number and all , that place (still have to look for ) said "put in a box send it out , we'll tear it down give you an estimate and go from there"  sounds fair. Place in Tupelo was a set price for a total rebuild
