You can do the pto clutch on the workbench along with also getting the hydro pump and lovejoy couplers together on the workbench also. The vangaurd looks to be about the same size as the Onans, maybe just a touch wider and there should be enough room under the hood.

I think there is a missunderstanding these pictures are a guys tractor from another forum I found and this tractor is a 1975 that had a kohler in it. I will be in prosses of repowering my 446 case 1978 model sometime here soon . I was looking for input on simular projects that people have done replacing a onan with a vangaurd
I understood the 444 has a 14hp K series Kohler in it. You have a 446 which is a 16hp Onan. I was simply implying that the swap is going to be fairly straight forward and should be relatively easy. You are going to be able to do most stuff on the workbench other then connecting the hydro hoses, fuel line and wiring. The Vanguard isn't much different in size other then being a little wider. I have never done the swap and I don't know if anyone on the site has done that swap with that particular tractor. I am trying to give you the encouragement to tackle it, it shouldn't be that difficult of the re-power.

I found some pics of a case 444 repower . It looked pretty good but I wanted to find a repowered 446 or 448 to see how they fit the hood as I understand it is a different install from onan to vangaurd
