The bolt issue on the rearend is common with the aluminum rearend supers, after you fix them it is highly recommended that you add some SGT braces from Xtreme, they will keep the rearend tight so you won't have a problem again.

When my friend said a bolt was stripped in the rear and someone added a brace I thought it was the axle housing tube bolts but now it makes more sense it’s the top mounting bolt or bolts that will need repairs I’m out of town visiting but I’ll get a better idea what’s needs to be done when I get back

Good luck with the new tractor Al.  It looks too good to scrap.  Hopefully all quick fixes.

First day above freezing since I brought it home . Still on the trailer but pulled the tunnel cover off to see what broke on the driveshaft and it looks like just the rear rubber coupler , it reminds me of a steering column rag joint . Nothing left of the fan and the hydraulic lines are completely smashed .  Really not as bad as I thought . I want to pressure wash it then bring it inside to see if I can get the engine started .
