Did a seal fail, I'm just curious as to what went wrong and don't mean to step on toes. I really felt you had a great design in the transfer case. :thumbs:

no problem Brian yes that was my fault. I didn't put oil in the unit because it had to come back apart to complete the welding of the sprockets on the hubs. 1 thing led to another and it got over looked.

I can understand things getting 'lost' in the process. Looks like you have things back in order now. That is a really cool tractor, ducky!

 DOH !! Hate when that happens... At least it's not as costly as the boo-boo- Duetz did on the 3- 27 liter V-12s we have on our generator plant at work.... All 36 cylinder heads need to be replaced because the valve pockets/seats are loose ... Glad their under warrenty .. Cha Ching!!!

That is a bad feeling... When building my offroad rig I used a larger sharpie and wrote "NO OIL" on my diff covers just for this reason. When you spend months and months and months fabbing something it's easy to miss the simple things.

I can't wait to see the three point hitch that you are talking about installing.

Can anyone elaborate for me on how to change the direction of one of these hydro's the way ducky did? Is it simply turning the charge pump cover 180° or does the motor section need to be turned? Or both? Since reversing the direction the input shaft spins (i.e. by mounting a hydro transaxle in the front of the tractor) also reverses the direction the wheels end up turning does flipping the charge pump cover account for that by itself or is it the motor that needs to be flipped?

All I did was flip the charge pump and thing seem to work fine.
