Another update....
Finished up the axle mounts for the loader. Now I currently have the rear axle removed. One now my homemade gaskets failed on the pump. Ordered 2 Oem gaskets from Messicks in PA. 6 a piece plus shipping was fine for me. Got those done and now trying to remove a wheel hub. It's being extremely stubborn. The axle seal is leaking so thought this would be a good time to fix it.

Got the torch on it now hoping for a miracle. It's defintely not corroded. Key looks good. Just doesn't want to move. Anyone have any tricks?

Forgot a pic of the loader actually on now. Hopefully, I'll drive it out before snow falls around here.

The miracle happened!!!! Let the torch sit about 5 minutes. Shut off and tapped it with the hammer. She fell off. Key is good. Just need to pull the tube now. Hoping I can source this seal from Napa. I know the Deere 400 uses a similar setup. I'm gonna try the Napa number I got from a thread I found on those. Hoping it matches.

I went to Napa and had it crossed over. He came up with the ID and OD. The thickness was .313 though. They had to order it from the warehouse so I'll get it tomorrow. I'm going to guess the thickness will still be fine. Thanks for the number. Saved me some searching.

Well the seal from Napa fit perfectly. Rearend is now all together and back in the tractor. I flipped the rear wheels for a wider stance. Got me the clearance I need. After all that, I went on a hunt for an oil leak on the engine. The result....a cracked oil pan where the drain tube screws in. Man this machine is making me earn my loader. Getting things together on the rear and middle. Then to pull the engine again!! Luckily I have a parts engine with a good pan.

Eric, this tractor will make you forget the little set backs when it's finished. Great build your doing.

No...I don't want a chance for a repair to fail. I'd rather just replace it with a good one. I can experiment with the pan afterwards maybe. With the list of things piling up after this is done, it may be a bit before I get to it.

No pics tonight. Managed to get the engine out. Swapped the oil pan. Still have to reinstall it. The crack was about 3" long. Worse than what I thought. I'm going to change the drain tube. Right now it comes straight out with a plug. Everytime the plug is tightened, the tube is tightened. Eventually cracking the pan. Going to add a turn down on the drain. Will prevent turning both while reinstalling drain plug. That's about all I have done. I'll post some pics tomorrow. Hopefully of it back in the tractor.

Little update. Been a while but for good reason. I've spent all this time adding fluid to the hydro/transaxle. As many know, it takes a while. Work has called. Wondering where I've been.


On a serious note, I snagged all my fittings and return hose for the loader. Haven't had much time due to the holidays. I am filling the hydro unit tonight. Here's hoping for no leaks.

So, I went out today and got the last few fittings I need (thought I already had them, Nope!!) Found all but 3 things. My local tractor supply sucks. Their stuff is a mess and half is out. Grabbed what I thought was a 36" pressure hose and it was only 24! Glad I checked. My local Napa will have what I need hopefully but they closed before I got back in town. Still need 2 90 hydraulic fittings and a fuel tank grommet. I also managed to lose the grommet I had tonight while out shopping. Can someone tell me the size or show me to where I can source these? Mine was cracked and dripped fuel.

I'm a set of tires and a choke cable away from being done. Everything after that is purely cosmetic. That'll come eventually. Need it to function first. Just finished swapping the carb for a better one (I think). Mounted and plumbed the pump. Tightened all the hoses and clamps. I'm at the turn key point.

How many of you have worked on something for so long, your almost scared to start it? I'm just as nervous as I'm excited. Send some prayers my way. The luck will surely follow.
