It's these two short metal hydro lines that I'm not sure about. They could go a couple of different ways.

I have to make a lift of some kind if I am going to continue to work under these tractors. For now this will work. It just isn't much fun laying under the tractor to work anymore.

Thanks again MH that got my hoses sorted out. I had tweaked them a little getting everything apart. Now the next problem. When I took my old line in to get it replaced they kept it when I picked up my new hose along with the male fitting that goes in the pump to connect to the line. So I will have to see if they still have it or buy a new one. It also looks like the new line should be at least two inches longer but I may be able to make it work.

I called the company (who was not nearly as concerned or interested as I would have liked). After talking to the first person who couldn't understand what I was telling her,she put me thru to the manager,who told me that he would see if they still had the line (where ever he sent it off to) and call me back. I hope it doesn't take a month to hear something this time but I have a feeling with the lack of concern that I felt from them that I will have to check back with them instead of waiting to hear back. I found a Ariens parts tractor tonight that I am suppose to go look at in a few days. I have half a notion to buy it for the hydraulic lines and parts that I can use.

Well they no longer have the old hose and fitting so I have to take another fitting out and take it to them so They can be sure what style,threads,etc. they told me. On a different note. Since I plan to work this tractor and it didn't come with a hood or nose / grill and the original Onan is shot I have came up with the way that I think I want to finish putting it together. I think I am going to go with a 14 or more hp cast iron single,with the older style bracket under the hood for the tank and battery. I'm going to use a 72 or older grill and hood.

Not sure yet Cat. Most likely Kohler or Briggs. I have a line on a very clean good running K341 that I'm looking into right now. BTW are you on a snow / ice removal board ? If not there is a Cat over there who does a good impression of you.

 MH I just mainly hope for it to be a go to user whether I want to put a deck on it,use 3 point attachments,snow plow,pull a trailer,etc.

I obviously have gotten a little side tracked on this one. I even decided that I might be best off to just get rid of it at one point. Looking thru some pictures today and remembering how much I have already gotten done with it already,got me to thinking,I need to get the 18T finished up. It may still be a couple of weeks before I get back to it. I did find a engine to at least put on it for now to get it going. Here is a couple of pictures of how it sits in the shop now (and for the last couple of months,pretty much untouched).
