After a visit to JD Parts, I have the shifter figured out and fixed. Just need to do something with the freewheel valve.

I muddled my way through this. Got it freed up. Never did see the spring they show in the parts!

Your hood is just as good if not in better condition. Went down and looked the other 265 over a bit and the grill is missing and it has a big crack down where it bolts fast in the inside.  I'm going to go ahead and grab up the tractor here in a few days. I need the tires and a few other parts off of it. It only has 586 hours on the meter but boy is it rough.

Mine has been over heated/warped from a grass fire. I may have to cut it to clear the new engine, so some of that may go away.

 

The last pic in post #15, that 1/2" nut is really an eccentric for adjusting the neutral return. If it's like the one on the rear for the neutral roller, it's probably rusty and have to take it off to free it up.

I have found that the crank is longer on this engine. That's what I get for using a machinist's scale with measurements on both side from different directions. Thought they were near the same length, but not so. The lower bearing on the PTO was frozen, bent it trying to press it out, so got to get another PTO now. The inner spacer will have to be machined so it will go further up onto the crank! So it's 3 steps back right now. I need to find some exhaust pipe that is 1-1/8" ID to rework the exhaust.

I rigged things up so I could start it and run the hydro. The pin popped back out and the hydro works. Before I put all the sheetmetal back on I have to fix 2 pins for the deck mounts. I have new ones made up, just have to crawl under there and grind the welds off the back side and install the new pins.

If these brackets weren't welded to the frame, it would be much easier!

Now I can put all the sheet metal back on!

I got the sheet metal put back on. I lubed everything I could under there before hand.

Here's what I have in the seat area. He took the seat off this for a different project. Said I could have the seat, but he tore the brackets out of the pan, then welded the seat on. It's unusable now.

Stuck the hood on it's hinge point to see what may be an issue. Hood mounting bracket is hitting the valve covers.

Not too worried about modifying this hood as the LH  side isn't to pretty.

I took the cut-off wheel to the offending parts. Trimmed them some and the hood will now close!

Needed to do some trim work on the part above the flywheel, since I offset the engine some. Used some red grease to let me know where to trim.

Used the cut0off wheel and numerous plunge cutsto make a respectable round hole.

More red grease to see if it was big enough.

None on the part I trimmed, so the hood is good to go for now.

Punch list as of now is:

 

ignition switch

muffler

seat

PTO clutch

 

If I had a seat, I could drive it!

I went out back and grabbed the seat platform off the old Poulan. It was too narrow at the swivel end, so I made some new pieces to work for it. I can now mount a seat until I find the right parts.

I am going to use the seat off Alice as I have a better one for her!

I just drove it for the first time. Gotta do some adjusting as neutral is real hard to find. And the steering has some play in it. Other than that, it did well!

Not sure yet, Tom. Gotta get the deck on it and mow some to see what I'll do with it.
