Ducky, looking VERY nice! One question....the way it's set up, one hydro will turn CW, the other CCW. I've been told by Tudor that more has to be done other than just turning the charge pump plate....or are you simply using reverse on one hydro to match forward on the other? But this gets confusing, being one MUST run in reverse for forward motion. I figure you've already done your homework on this. My mind is foggy today anyway......raining again!!!!!
I sure love the work you've done.....quite a project to take on!

Awesome work Ducky. Are you going to have enough up and down movement on the pivot for most terrain? Looks like it would have enough rotation and movement for most terrain, I am just wondering about going in and out of furrows at an angle maybe?

The drop box looks sweet :D

I was under the understanding that turning the front pump cover was all that was needed.
I believe turning the pump backward would cause all kinds of problems inside with oil flow and the likes.
Perhaps Tudor could chime in and set me straight.

I can pick any wheel 8" and have movement.

After reviewing the manual I believe Suntrand rotational change can be done by just changing the charge pump so it will supply the hydro charge pressure instead of sucking when the rotation is changed.
I did read in the Eaton manual that more internal changes need to be made in order to change there rotation.

Please jump in and correct me if I have this wrong. I will be firing this thing hopefully this weekend.

Ducky, In the picture of the drive line from engine to gear case, are you going to mount the coupling end in a bearing or are you going to let the love joy coupling carry the shaft? I have never set one up this way without a carrier bearing close to the coupling?

Thought I would ask. Project looks fantastic, what a build !!

Ha, I had the same thoughts about that to and plan to go with a u-joint for the final assembly. I think there could be balnce problem develop over time as the rubber wears.

Yes Sir, that will take care of that issue. If you wanted to use the coupling, all you would need is a flange mount bearing and a mounting plate. The coupling would take some of the shock out between drive line and engine.

Looks great ducky. I am anxious to see what it looks like with the rest of the body work and the controls.

Is this your shop that you are doing all the work in?
