YEAH IT RUNS AND IT MOVES!!!!!!
I put the carb together tonight and fired it up. Kind of rough but it did smooth out the more it ran. It ran good enought I backed the machine out of the garage and drove it back in. All the gears work, feel and sound ok. The steering is sweet on this thing. Very little effort on the steering levers to make it turn. I didn't go cruising as it is still stalling and the battery was a bit week from restarting it.
I don't think the governor is working properly and I don't know much about them. From what I read on line they are simple so, I will have to have a go at it. It may just be sticky from sitting for a few years. A set of plugs, wires and dist cap would go a long ways to solving some of the issues, the wires and cap are sun baked / weathered.
I drained the diesel from the gear boxes tonight and will re fill with the proper oil. Once I get it tuned up and running smoother I will go for a cruise in the field.
After that next steps will be to get the hydralics hooked up and working. New hoses will cost a bit.
Then fix, paint the hood and install and permantly mount the throttle, choke ,switchs and gauges.
Several hours of work yet.
Compared to what it looked like when I 1st saw it sitting in the field.
