Oh man, what a cake walk, mount the pump to the flywheel directly, get rid of that screen thing and then mount a tank over the battery ,or better yet, over the aircleaner so it can be moved easily for access . Nevermind clutching it. Then you can have live Hydraulics all the time, including powersteering if you like.

Al, it "may" fit either in that location OR on the other side and YES that belt is the main drive belt for the trans-axle, so it is always turning.
If I can settle on a replacement trans-axle, I may have another option or three, on the bottom side, for pump locations. The tank is going to be a PITA as far as getting max capacities vs. available space. Time will tell. 3" lift cylinder is on the way, also...

Once I get everything here, and on the bench, I'll have a little better idea, of which direction, I'll need to go. 10-12 gal capacity, is all I'm looking or. I've also checked into the various hydro styles of coolers. Not sure what I'll use until things start comming together.

Once open...I looked in and saw the most beautiful little hydraulic cylinder, that I have ever seen. So nice in fact, that I left it on the coffee table overnight, just so that I could sneak a glimps at it again, this morning, on my way out the door. Almost "pic-worthy", it came all the way from Sweden, just to join the game.

Are you going to use the entire cub? As it has a horizontal shaft engine? Just do like all the tractor puller folks, and put the green tin on the cub chassis , then you will have a Jon Cadet LOL.
I'm sure that there will be a splice to the JD frame.
For some reason, as easy as it would make things, I'm holding strong on the vertical crank Briggs. I know it GREATLY complicates things, but that is part of the fun.
I can say, that a rear end splice will make the project a little less difficult and when done, should look as if it were always built that way. If/when looking at the two side by side, it becomes obvious that it will NEVER work, I'll have to regroup and go from there. I do know, that there should be room/clearance for a mule drive setup, to go from the vertical Briggs, to the horizontal Cub rearend. If not...
