To get my new shaft in I had to unbolt the rear again. Royal pain that I hope I don't have to do again.

Yep, just pulled the motor out or disconnected everything but the electrical and the fuel lines.  I had to raise it with a chain fall high enough to wiggle the drive shaft out.  I should have put a large 10 pin connector on the electrical so I can just unplug and lift the whole motor out.

Nice video. You're sure not working the engine at all.  :thumbs:

I finally got it all painted, decals installed and assembled.  I'm happy with the results, the clear coat needs a bit of buffing but that's all in the details.  I installed some reflective noise insulation on the inside of all the panels.  It helps with the noise and the heat.attachicon.gif20170703_161456.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161519.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161536.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161536.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161548.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161602.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161629.jpgattachicon.gif20170703_161646.jpg


I can't believe I haven't seen this rebuild thread until now.  This tractor is absolutely stunning!  It looks like it came from the factory like this.  You do amazing work and this machine is better than any brand new garden tractor on the market today.  EXCELLENT WORK!!!
