Congrats on the purchase. I'm the same way. So much faster and easier to not have to scrape every single part as you go and risk a chunk of grunge falling into the engine or differential, or hydraulic lines and ports.Once I work through what I believe to be a simple problem, I will be taking this one apart piece by piece. When I pulled the deck, I notice some broken springs and some other items needing addressed. It will need pressure washed a couple more times as the tin starts coming off. I can't stand to put a wrench on anything with grease, especially if I have the time to clean it 1st.
