Thanks Bob, I know what you mean; but, when it's something you enjoy doing it doesn't seem so bad.

I just want to interject in here that when I did the spindles on the front axle, I had to use an old thrust bearing {with missing needles} because I could not find my other new one. I was looking around for something else and I found it, so now I have both new thrust bearings on.

Had a go at mocking up a couple of the Ag's on the rear, yes I know the tread is the wrong direction. Didn't catch it till after I already had them on. The models that are equipped with a hydro cooling fan, have the mounting bracket sandwiched between the frame and a couple of the transaxle bolts. I temporarily mounted this for a photo op, but will remove and reassemble it later so it doesn't get too bumped around. I am currently trying to source some Woodruff keys {Part# 907346} for the 4 hubs.

Just a little update on my progress, as you may have noticed one of the rear tires does not hold air. This is not due to the tire rather the wheel assembly, specifically, the area where the valve stem hole was welded shut and ground down. It was taken down too far and this is where the air leaks, so needless to say it's going to have to be rewelded. I still have to get the other two tires mounted and test them for leaks. In the meantime, I assembled the side panels to the frame.

Nappy, I don't have a target date. I do have a lot of parts redone, but they are for later on in the reassembly. I have to reassemble each one in order, some I don't even have yet. Next is the rear wheels/tires which requires the 4 Woodruff keys for the axles. The local Fastenal moved so I may try to find another close, to purchase from. I also need to finish the discs for the brakes...
