Here's the start of this folks! I have a JD 265 with a knocking 17 HP Kawasaki engine. Plan to install a Kohler 25 HP CV730 engine. Hope I can make it work.
First order of business was a power wash of the donor tractor. It's a Poulan Pro Hydro, 25 HP Kohler with 54" cut. Many issues with this:
Grille is missing
PO put 6" wheels on the front and one has the wrong offset, rubs the spindle.
If any one out there has one of these and needs parts, shoot me a PM.
Used the FF/20 and boom pole to move it closer.
Rolled it forward and used my big wrecking bar to get it up on the ramp.
Let the dissection begin! Bolts will go in a large coffee can. Parts will be stacked for now..
