If you turn the input ccw the output turnns ccw. 1 revolution of the input is about 1.25 revolutions of the output. This box was built to lay down but shouldn't be a problem to stand it up.

I can understand working with what you have. I have to go along with finding a better choice of tractor. I have an SS15 also, very rugged, good workers, & reliable. Sears only made these one year. Keep us posted on your progress.

Looks good, let me go do some measuring to see if I can make it fit.

If this one had have been in good shape when I got it I probably wouldn't be doing so much work to it.  But it came without an engine or rear fenders, so I don't feel so bad.  The Yanmar L100 fits like a glove and I didn't even have to raise the hood, but once you get a bigger engine you want to use it!

That makes sense. It looks like things worked out good. The fab on the muffler & exhaust turned out nice too. Like mentioned I would love to hear that running too.

I'll have to get the engine back in it, right now the Kubota is on the sears with fabbed up mounts so I can test fire it.  I came across an old Ransomes Bob-Cat mower that is hydro and has hydraulics.  I am trying to pick it up to do one of two things; pull the hydro and hydraulics off to put in the sears, with the Kubota.  Or leave the Yanmar L100 in the sears and use the Ransomes and make a loader tractor, putting the Kubota in it.

I picked up the Bobcat on Tuesday.  Its a T18b with an 18hp opposed twin Briggs, ported hydro with a single cylinder lift.  It runs great and everything works so I am leaning more towards doing something with it and leaving the Yanmar in the Sears, adding hydraulics and then tearing it down and getting things painted.

I have the Kubota running, the injection pump was all gummed up so I tore it down and cleaned everything and reinstalled it.  It took a minute to bleed the system, then I used a heat gun to warm the intake and it fired right up!  It smokes some but I don't know how long it was sitting, and it has 2240 hours on it.  Time to size up the Bob-Cat T18B and get it in there.
