Well I am going to start this thread and when I have a question for you all I'll just post it in here. I love the forums you get tons of help. Well the first question I am getting ready to remove the motor,do I just reach in that hole and take off the bolts to the rear drive? I have made alot of progress yesterday everything is off just need to get the motor out. And if anyone has any tips,tricks,or just ways to make things go easier feel free to chime in. THANKS

Yeah this thing is comming apart like a puzzle,now I am going to steam clean it to make the rest of the job easier. All the external stuff is off I just need to get a puller to get the stearing wheel off so I can pull the gauge assembly off. Man is this thing well built and every bolt came off with ease knock on wood. Every bolt for except one on the left rear fender is original,you can tell buy the nuts and boltheads. I will post some pictures soon crk8

Motors comming out tomorrow and then out back for a pressure wash. I am going to get the whole thing sodablasted,I haven't had anything sodablasted before but they say it's the way to go it dissolves with water so no worry about sand in bearings and cracks.

Sodablasting that is a new one for me. I like the concept though. Sand and moving parts are a bad combination. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Sounds really interesting, how much does sand blasting run per hour vs. the $125 for soda blasting?, I'm planning on getting a b10 soon, and I might need to have it cleaned good so I can paint it.

Sandblasting around where I live is about the same price maybe a little less but leaves a mess and gets into everything. Sodablasting is a new thing around my area and alot of people are going with this and it's safe on glass.

I just use a wire brush in an angle grinder followed by a body shop air-sander with 80 grit, then 220 grit. On sheet metal you have to watch out as blasting can warp things. The wire is the way to go when you have bearings and shafts around since it does not project anything into the seals.

Thanks,I'll check into that I am going to the local dealer anyhow. Taking this thing apart was so easy no stubborn bolts or hard to get to ones either. I just hope I remember how everything goes back together ;-) . If not I am sure everyone on here would be more then happy to help.

I try to take close up pictures of everything I touch because I would never remember how to put it back together again. I forgot once and still don't know how to put this pulley system back together. sm02

Brad...I hope you will post the pictures and the tractor # somewhere on the site and let everyone know when you do it. It helps a lot of people to see a complete breakdown and restore project with closeups. I sure would like seeing it and I'm sure others would also. larry
