      Just an update on my project. I used the machine for some landscaping work around our house last week and it worked like a charm. The only piece of fuel pipe I didn't replace sprung a leak and a hydraulic hose needed to be replaced but otherwise it ran smoothly. Thanks so much to everyone on the forum for the advice provided. Next month the machine heads up on a barge to our cabin to clear some trails. I'll have the ROPS back on before I go into the woods.



  5. We've got the machine in the garage. Now the fun begins!!.  We live in a bit of a retirement community and lots of our neighbors are really interested in the project.

      I used acbjohn's sketch to fab up my own linkages and they seem to work fine. It took a few attempts to install the clutch covers/linkages at the same time but I got so good at it I decided to drop a socket into the housing when I was finished so that I could do it one more time!!

      Changed the fluids and filters, put on a new battery, the engine started right away and the hubs turned and stopped just like they were supposed to. I am starting to think that I might actually get this thing going. Just to reiterate what others have said there is no way I could have got this far without the advice of everyone here.
