712S to 712H

It's done (well, I still have to hook up the brake pedal, but I never use it anyway). This was a very easy swap.. well worth the effort... nothing like the control of a hydro. Still need to finesse the neutral adjustment so it doesn't creep, but it's close enough as is. I was a little nervous because it took quite a while to get the hydro primed... but finally she would turn the wheels. If anyone needs a good Shuttle rear (minus the wheels/tires and weights, those will make it onto one of my hydros before winter) let me know. I'm NW of Baltimore MD.

The hydro I had didn't have an engine. I came across a 712 Shuttle and did some restoration work, but wasn't crazy about the Shuttle transmission. So, I unbolted the hydro rear (from the 716 w/no engine) and bolted it to the Shuttle front.
