I pulled the transaxle and swapped the axle tube with the cracked ear. In the process I figured out I had a lot of water in with the oil. I had checked the fluid many times, but it looked nice and clean,never milky. So we drained it real good and inspected the internals. Everything looked ok so we put it back together. My fenders and center cover are at the sand blaster and should be ready soon. I found a lot of things that can be tightened up in the lift system and I will be doing that as I get things back together.

I like the look of your aggressive tires. The custom draw bar is nice.

Looks like the older style engine/generator is powering it with a modified older grill. You say the 1980 engine needs a crank, wish I could help with that.

The seat looks sweet.

Finally out of the shop! The tractor show is next week! Thanks VTX, the grill is off the parts tractor, I wish they had not cut the bump off it. I have no idea why they did.
This looks fantastic! Makes me want to take the time to restore mine one day.

This is my favorite small tractor, it does alot of work for its size. I had a blast at the tractor show, and it did pretty dang good on the pulling sled. A full pull was something like 120" of weight box travel. My best was 98". Those rear tires bite real nice.

Enjoyed your videos sounds beefy & I like the idle of the thumping. What type & size tire are using on the fronts.
