Was doing some other repair in that area and if you remove that set screw, that first arm should slide off, in it or the next arm there is a small woodruff key, don't loose that. Then the last arm comes off, can't remember what holds that on, if any thing.
Then all the levers should come out.

Do you have the PTO that goes on the back of the pump?

Well after realizing the tiller was only 26" wide it was too narrow for my 140 and I didn't want to invest in an extension so a buddy came this evening and bought it.

Wow it's been a long time since I've updated this thread but within the next few weeks I am planning on finally getting in the extra k321 i had bought and got rebuilt with all new parts so hoping to get another 50 years out of that engine. Also going to add a hour meter for maintenance reminders and change a few leaking hydraulic couplers and change fluid and filter in trans. just need to find the drain on the trans cause I assume I fill it through the dipstick tube. If all goes well I will have a nice show tractor during the year and a plow beast in the winter time. Thanks

Well she don't look like much but here is the rebuilt engine. I chose not to paint it so it would match the original condition of the tractor and not stick out like a sore thumb.

I heaved the old engine out and got the new one in and all hooked up yesterday and started the break in process on the engine by running it at about mid throttle for 15 minutes while changing up the rpm every now and then. Drained the oil to make sure no metal shavings and not a trace and I was super happy. Now i gotta go get some more oil for it then I can run it for the next three hours just casually driving it around then I can change the oil again. I'm probably changing the oil more than I have to for break in but as cheap as oil is I'd rather be safe than sorry.

And also polished hood. Will make for a decent spare hood even though there's a hole, and latch rivets are ripped out and crack in the front. I laid it next to my other hood for comparison.

What'd you do with the radio. I hope you saved the shell. If so, you could re-radio it with an updated system. I would if I had that shell. At least the shell looks to be in good condition. I do hope you still have it for a rainy day.
