Sunday, I took the hood off and pulled the grille and headlights off it. Has a crack at the top left due to the top of the grille being pushed back in.

I glued the hood back together with the E-6000, it takes 3 days to reach maximum strength. I did put another piece inside to span the crack.

Yesterday, I started bending the grille back into shape and the paint was flaking off bad. No primer under it. So I scraped as much as I could off and used the Mapp Gas torch to get the rest off. Have a coat of Rust Reformer on it now. I have no JD Green, so the grille may be left black, we'll see. I'll get some pics today.

 

The headlights do work! Cleaned the dirt off the bulbs and made sure the connections weren't rusty.

Here's the hood repair. I'll leave the clamp on until tomorrow morning.

This is what the grille looks like right now. May get a can of JD paint tomorrow.

I've been thinking about the PTO and I am going to try to use the Poulan setup. Just hope it doesn't put the PTO too low. Once it warms up a bit today, I'll see what transpires with that.

That's just Rust Reformer. But I may temp it into the hood tomorrow and see what it looks like

 

I got out the Poulan drive pulley and PTO. Looks like that would put the PTO pulley at least 1" below where the original was. Don't think that would work.

Well. I looked things over and it dawned on me that the Poulan PTO was 3/4" shorter than the JD. That put things back into a workable situation. But I needed a 3/4" bushing between the PTO and drive pulley. Good old HF band saw came through with that issue. Then I needed to extend the pin the keep the PTO from turning with the crankshaft. Made up a piece for that.

Got the pin attached.

And the deck is back on! It mows again! Done tried it out!

Now for a charging system! Gotta find a flywheel!

Had a little time yesterday and changed the engine oil and filter. Put in 10W30 full synthetic as Kohler says this is suitable for this engine. It was some dirty oil. Hope to get a filter for the rear axle soon and change that out.

I would have thought they would have recommended a 30W oil and not 10W30.

They show a 30W, but the multi-weight is optional!

Changed out the hydro fluid today, but it's still nasty in there! Think I'll give it about 10 hours clock time and drop the fluid.

If I understand your question right, this is from the manual:

I PM'd Daniel (olcowhand) and he said I could use the 303 fluid in there. I have enough of it to change it out again.
