Typically there is a smaller fixed displacement pump for the implements ~35gpm. Then a larger variable displacement pump setup for movement. Downside is they share oil and if one takes a crap it can/will wipe out the other in time if not addressed. It's been a hot minute since I have worked on tractors, but my gut says it will be more than $1500 in parts to fix.So I went and looked at this tractor tonight. It’s a hydrostatic transmission. The guy was driving it, and it just quit moving. While I was there it started making a grinding noise, sounded to me similar to a chain running across a toothless sprocket. The guy had never heard that noise before. After a second, the noise stopped, and then I pressed the pedal and tractor moved forward. After about one turn of the wheels it quit moving and made the noise again. couldn’t get it to move again after that. Do any of you tractor folks know how a hydrostatic tractor gets it hydro pressure for movement? The bucket still functions like it should.

These use the same grille as the standard coupes, didn't seem right with the all chrome one, wait till we start bolting on the detail stuff. Also using the chrome coupe deluxe headlight bezels, trucks had painted ones.That grill with the dark purple... So cool.
Thanks, it certainly takes patience, time, money still but hopefully all worth it in the end. I hate bodywork I decided, so tedious.I applaud all that you have been able to do in house. Wish I could do worthwhile bodywork and upholstery. That’s awesome.
